Report: Jerry Sandusky penning memoir in jail

It appears that convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky is finding away to pass the time in jail as he awaits sentencing on 45 child sex abuse charges.

WJAC in Johnstown first reported that Sandusky is writing his second book with the help of his wife Dottie. The former Penn State coach authored “Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story” in 2001.

The report, citing unnamed sources, says that Jerry Sandusky is writing his version of the events that rocked Penn State University and led to the firing of several officials, including legendary coach Joe Paterno who died a few months later.

Jerry Sandusky and his wife are reportedly corresponding so much on the purported novel that Dottie had her correspondence privileges revoked.

It is unclear how the book will be published or what it will be titled.

As the report points out, Sandusky could not profit off the book because convicted felons are prohibited from profiting for writing about their crimes. Any potential proceeds to Dottie Sandusky could, however, help defer legal expenses.

Sandusky is scheduled to be sentenced in September. Last week, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service said it was investigating whether Sandusky shared child pornography with others, although Sandusky’s lawyer denied the claims.
