    Former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky has been placed on suicide watch, his attorney said Saturday. Sandusky was convicted Friday of 45 of 48 counts of sexual abuse of minors. His attorney Joe Amendola said Sandusky is planning on appealing the verdict. “If you win on one of the appeal issues, everything probably fails,” Amendola said. Meanwhile, the family of Sandusky’s late mentor, famed Penn State coach Joe Paterno, hailed the verdict as a “milestone.” Paterno was fired shortly before he died for allegedly failing to act on reports of Sandusky’s alleged abuse.
