Ex-Penn St. coach "distraught" over sex case - CBS News
A former longtime defensive coach for the Penn State Nittany Lions is out on bail tonight after being charged with multiple accounts of sexual abuse of underage boys. Also, two more Penn State officials are expected to turn themselves in amid charges of a cover-up.
CBS News correspondent Dean Reynolds reports that for 67-year-old Jerry Sandusky, a jubilant career at Penn State has dwindled to a perp walk and prosecution.
"Jerry's very, very depressed. He's very upset. He's very distraught about the charges, the allegations," said Joe Amendola, Sandusky's attorney.
In a 40-count indictment ending a three year inquiry, Sandusky is alleged to have targeted at least eight boys for sexual advances or assaults over 15 years.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly said: "This case is about a sexual predator who used his position within the university and community to repeatedly prey on young boys."
