    • An audio recording of Jerry Sandusky is released in which he "wonders what they've won". (AP via Boston Globe)
    • After the court's declaration that Sandusky is a violent sexual predator, the presiding judge sentences him to at least 30 years imprisonment. During sentencing, the judge acknowledges Sandusky's "positive work" but further states that it served only to hide his true character. Sandusky's lawyer vows to lodge an appeal against the ruling.
