One of the sons of former Penn State football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky has pleaded guilty to 14 counts of child sexual abuse in Centre County, Pa.
Due to go on trial next week, Sandusky, 41, pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors and 12 felonies in a deal with prosecutors, under which he would serve three to six years in prison. The judge isn't bound by the deal and could sentence him to up to eight years.
Centre County District Attorney Stacey Parks Miller said the plea spares the victims the trauma of testifying. "We are happy that these girls can move forward and experience a life with adults that deserve their trust," she said.
