Jerry Sandusky and at least some of his victims are expected to address the judge at his sentencing tomorrow. Sandusky's lawyer says "it's as certain as certain can be" that the former Penn State assistant football coach will speak and assert his innocence before he is sentenced on 45 counts of child sexual abuse.

Nobody else is expected to speak on Sandusky's behalf during Tuesday's sentencing hearing, according to defense attorney Joe Amendola.

The attorney says others, including Sandusky's wife, have submitted letters on his behalf and that Dottie Sandusky stands by her husband and will attend the sentencing.

Prosecutors say as many as half a dozen victims will be heard at the hearing.
