Jerry Sandusky will be sentenced on Oct. 9 for the 45 counts of sexual abuse he was found guilty of according to a court document issued by the Centre County Courthouse.

Any written statements or information that may impact the sentencing are required to be submitted by Oct. 5, according to court documents. A sentencing conference will also take place for both the prosecution and defense at 2 p.m. on Oct. 8.
Sandusky, a former Penn State defensive coordinator, was found guilty on 45 of 48 counts of child sex abuse in June. He maintains his innocence through his lawyer, Joe Amendola.
