Former Penn State Assistant Football Coach Jerry Sandusky has been found guilty of charges in the sex abuse trial against him. The jury of 12 reached a verdict after deliberating on 48 counts that accuse him of abusing 10 boys over the course of 15 years.

The scandal that involved Sandusky was instrumental in bringing down the coaching career of former Penn State Head Coach Joe Paterno, who resigned before the end of last season and passed away shortly after.
