Jerry Sandusky is about to hear what sentence the judge will impose for his conviction on dozens of counts of child sexual abuse.

Judge John Cleland will hand down a sentence Tuesday that even lawyers for the former Penn State assistant coach say is likely to send Sandusky to prison for the rest of his life.

He's convicted of 45 counts involving 10 victims over 15 years. He met most if not all of the boys through a charity for at-risk youth he founded in 1977.

The 68-year-old Sandusky maintains his innocence and plans to appeal.

Eight of the victims testified, describing a range of abuse that included grooming, fondling, oral sex and anal sex. Eight lawyers are currently representing 20 people who have sued or are potential civil claimants.
