Attorney General Josh Shapiro Statement on Court Decision Upholding Jerry Sandusky Conviction

October 18, 2017 | Topic: Criminal

“Today, the Court denied Jerry Sandusky relief under the Post Conviction Relief Act. We achieved justice for the victims in this case and are confident that these convictions will continue to stand. Hopefully, today’s decision will allow the victims of Mr. Sandusky to live their lives knowing that this serial sexual abuser will remain behind bars. We will continue to fight to defend the jury’s verdict. I have zero tolerance for the sexual abuse of children, and our office will pursue anyone who preys on children wherever we find them.”

– Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro
