The prosecution in the Jerry Sandusky case is now seeking to have Sandusky classified by a sexually violent predator, according to a request filed by Chief Deputy Attorney General Frank Fina Wednesday.
According to court documents, the courts directed the Pennsylvania Sexual Offender Assessment Board conduct an assessment as to whether Sandusky is a sexually violent predator or not.
Sandusky, the former Penn State defensive coach, was convicted in June on 45 counts of sexually abusing boys he met through his charity, The Second Mile.
On Aug. 22, the prosecution received the assessment of the board, which was not attached to the court documents filed Wednesday. Upon review of the assessment, the prosecution requested a hearing to review Sandusky’s status as a sexually violent predator. No date has been set for a hearing.
If Sandusky were to be deemed a sexually violent predator, it would require him to register with authorities for the rest of his life.
Sandusky’s defense attorney Karl Rominger said that Sandusky will likely receive his sentencing sometime in October, although he was not sure of an exact date, as previously reported.
