Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett issued the following statement via his Facebook page after former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was found guilty on 45 counts of child sex abuse Friday night.
“First, I want to thank the jury for their willingness to serve on such a difficult case.
“I also want to commend the multiple victims in this case who had the courage to come forward and testify in court, confronting Sandusky, and proving beyond a reasonable doubt that he is guilty of these reprehensible crimes.
“The agents and prosecutors of the Attorney General’s Office, as well as the Pennsylvania State Police, also deserve a great deal of credit for today’s verdict. They pursued every lead, gathering evidence from multiple victims, in order to bring this man to justice."
