Jerry Sandusky’s Annual $59,000 Pension Revoked

The crimes that cost Jerry Sandusky a free life will also force him to forfeit his pension.

A day after he received essentially what is a life-long jail sentence, the Pennsylvania’s State Employees’ Retirement System (SERS) notified Sandusky that his $59,000 annual pension has been revoked. His wife, Dottie, is no longer entitled to her husband’s $4,908 monthly pension check either.

Back in July, we wrote about Sandusky how was still receiving his pension in prison because his crimes did not fall under Act 140. However, SERS determined that two of Sandusky’s convicted charges fell under the forfeiture policy, according to the Centre Daily Times.

Sandusky’s defense team plans to fight the ruling. “It’s my inclination to believe that they are just going through the motions to try to throw some red meat to the public, but they know they are going to lose,” defense attorney Karl Rominger told WPVI.
