Jury finds Sandusky guilty on 45 of 48 counts

A Pennsylvania jury found former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky guilty Friday night on 45 of 48 charges in his sexual abuse trial.

After the announcement was read, the former Nittany Lions assistant was led to a police car to go to a local jail. Sandusky, who showed little emotion as the verdict was read, faces a maximum of 442 years in prison.

Sandusky's bail has been revoked and he'll remain jailed until his sentencing, scheduled to take place in 90 days.

On the five-month anniversary of longtime Nittany Lions head coach Joe Paterno's death, a jury decided the 68-year-old's fate after he was accused of molesting 10 boys over a 15-year period. Jurors had listened to seven days of testimony, including from eight young men who said they were victims of Sandusky. They also heard about two other alleged victims through other witnesses.

Sandusky didn't take the stand in the case.
