Jerry Sandusky released a statement from prison the night before his sentencing saying he would continue to fight for his innocence.
In the statement aired on Penn State's ComRadio, Sandusky asked the public to evaluate the men who testified against him, and to realize they came to his charity, The Second Mile, because of "issues."
"The accusers were products of many more people and experiences than me," Sandusky said in the statement. "Think about how easy it was for them to turn on me given the information, attention and potential perks. I never labeled or put down them or their families."
Sandusky also said he would "fight for another chance," as he said he was made out as a "monster" and did not do the acts he was convicted of. He said though he has not been a complainer, he was not given time to prepare for his original trial.
"I’m responding to the worst loss of my life," Sandusky said. "First, I looked at myself. Over and over, I asked why? Why didn’t we have a fair opportunity to prepare for trial? Why have so many people suffered as a result of false allegations?"
