Update from MSNBC:

Karl Rominger said Sandusky was under individual guard at the county jail, known as suicide watch, and was apart from the general prison population, Reuters reported. 

It was not clear if Sandusky had acted in a way that threatened his own life, or if the move was standard procedure in such a high-profile case.

Rominger reiterated that the former defensive coach for Penn State football will appeal the verdict, a process that can happen when Sandusky is sentenced in 90 days or so.

Make no mistake, this college football story is a not a football story. It’s a million times bigger than that. The Harrisburg Patriot-News’ Sara Ganim won a Pulitzer for reporting on this, and she’s a news reporter, not a sports reporter.

Jerry Sandusky was convicted tonight on 45 of 48 counts of child sex abuse. Even his own adopted son accused of him of doing so. Per sentencing guidelines, he’ll get at least 60 years, and faces a maximum of 442 years in prison. He’ll find out his specific fate in 90 days, but this much is clear- he’ll die in prison and rot in hell.

JUSTICE has prevailed!

But what about the Penn State program?
