Sandusky Transferred to State Prison, Will Remain in Protective Custody

Jerry Sandusky will spend the rest of his life in the State Correctional Institution at Greene in Waynesburg, PA — just 20 miles south of the town where he grew up and went to high school in Washington. Due to the type of crimes and the high profile nature of the case, Sandusky will remain in protective custody, which will keep him isolated from the rest of the prison population.

That means he won’t be hanging out with rapper Cool C of the Hilltop Hustlers anytime soon, who is also incarcerated at Greene awaiting execution.

The terms of his sentence are quite strict. Sandusky will spend 23 hours a day in his single cell, with one hour allowed for supervised exercise. Meals will be served in his room, where he will be able to have a television, radio, and other personal items.

He will only be permitted to take three showers a week, and have no-contact visits, which means he will likely never hug his wife for the rest of his life.

One-hundred eighty-nine years later, an Oxford brewery is honoring one of the preeminent champions of “liberal and practical” higher education in the form of a delicious Porter.
