Jerry Sandusky has been led away in handcuffs from a Pennsylvania courthouse after being convicted of molesting 10 boys over 15 years.

In court, Sandusky half-waved toward family as the sheriff led him away. Outside, he calmly walked to a sheriff's car with his hands cuffed in front of him.

The former Penn State assistant football coach has been convicted of 45 counts.

Sandusky showed little emotion as the verdict was read. The judge ordered him to be taken to the county jail to await sentencing in about three months.

His attorney, Karl Rominger, says it was "a tough case" with a lot of charges and that an appeal was certain.

He says the defense team "didn't exactly have a lot of time to prepare." He says Sandusky "took it well" upon hearing the verdict.
