Sandusky Will Get $59K Pension

It may seem a little backwards that taxpayer money will go to convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky, but apparently it’s in accordance with the law. The former football assistant coach will continue to receive a $59,000 annual state pension from his thirty year career at Penn State while behind bars, after being found guilty of 45 charges related to child sex abuse. But Sandusky’s heinous crimes aren’t covered by Pennsylvania’s Act 140, and while the state is working to amend the law, Penn State is still bound in a pension contract with the former assistant coach.
