Report: Jerry Sandusky Writing a Book in Prison
Gary Sinderson of WJACTV is reporting that Jerry Sandusky, currently incarcerated at the Centre County Correctional Facility while awaiting sentencing, is writing his second book from behind bars.
According to the report, Sandusky was initially writing a statement to read before his sentencing (which should occur in the next couple months), but with the help of his wife Dottie, he’s penning his second book.
WJACTV also reports that Sandusky has been taken off suicide watch and is a “model inmate, spending hours quietly in his cell.”
Let’s hope this book has a less ironic title than his first memoir, infamously named “Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story.”
Sandusky’s book, should it materialize, would surpass Joe Posnanski’s Paterno biography as the most anticipated book release from the scandal, at least for me. And, as WJACTV reports, convicted felons can’t profit from writing about their crimes, so I won’t feel too bad about myself when I shell out the money to buy it.
