Jeffrey Sandusky, the adopted son of the former Penn State assistant coach who has been essentially sentenced to life in prison for his crimes against children, pleaded guilty to charges of sexual abuse of a teenage girl.“I don’t care how many mistakes you make in a lifetime …you have to reach a point somewhere where you can live with your mistake,” Black said.After more than a day of deliberations, the Dauphin County panel of seven women and five men last Friday convicted Spanier, 68, of misdemeanor child endangerment for not taking steps to alert child-welfare authorities in 2001 after learning Sandusky had been caught showering with a boy after hours in a campus locker room.The prosecution said several times during the trial that four more victims were sexually assaulted by Sandusky after that 2001 incident.
