Fellow inmates locked up alongside Jerry Sandusky reportedly taunted him by singing “Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone” – a line from Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall – while he was awaiting trial.
Jerry Sandusky, who has returned to the Centre County Correctional Facility after being convicted of 45 out of 48 charges of child sex abuse, was first locked up in the jail last December.
While there, inmates taunted the disgraced Penn State football coach when the lights went out.
“At night, we were singing <<Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone>>,” one 22-year-old offender named Josh told The Daily.
Prisoners were banned from speaking directly to Jerry Sandusky, who was in a special unit reserved for sex offenders or people with mental illnesses.
They were aware of his offenses as they had access to television and newspapers, Josh added.
It suggests the hostile welcome Jerry Sandusky could have expected when he returned to the jail last week as he awaits sentencing.
The revelations come after Jerry Sandusky was found guilty of using his position at Penn State to coerce children into sex, raping them on university grounds or at his home.
But as he faces 442 years in prison, his legal team has raised an argument about his speedy trial that may become the thrust of an appeal.
Jerry sandusky’s lawyers have revealed that they tried to throw in the towel as the trial began because they had too little time to prepare.
