You Can’t Make This Up. Jerry Sandusky’s Book Titled “Touched.”
You can’t make this up.
For most of the 37 years between 1963 and 2000, Jerry Sandusky was the epitome of a Penn State man.
That shining image dimmed over the weekend, when police arrested him on seven counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and other charges, including aggravated indecent assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
Sandusky, 67, allegedly engaged in fondling, oral sex and anal sex with young boys over a period of more than 10 years, according to an investigative state grand jury’s summary of testimony.
He maintains he is innocent.
Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno spoke for many in the community when he called the string of sexual child abuse charges against Sandusky “shocking.”
Touched is the story of Jerry SanduskyÂ’s life in his own words. From his childhood to his professional career, this book goes behind the scenes to explore the successes and challenges that Jerry Sandusky has faced in life, both on and off the football field. After graduating from Penn State in 1966, Sandusky went on to coach collegiate football for 34 years. Thirty-two of those years were with Penn State, as the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach under Joe Paterno, until his retirement in 1999. The book also explores SanduskyÂ’s involvement in childrenÂ’s charities, including the founding of his charity, “Second Mile.”
