Convicted pedophile, Jerry Sandusky released an audiotape the evening before his sentencing for 45 counts of child sexual abuse.
While he shifts he blame on to the victims, the media, and the justice system, Penn State, psychologists, and attorneys, calling it “a well orchestrated” conspiracy, there is a shakiness to his voice and an overcompensated volume to his voice which shows displaced anger and extreme fear.
His statement speaks volumes about this vapid man who looks at life as wins and losses calling this “the worst loss of my life.” He then goes on to say “They’ve won. “I’ve wondered what they’ve really won. Attention, financial gain, prestige will all be temporary.”
It is as though he is looking at this as a football game.
In fact , his cadence as he read his statement, sounds like a like a coach giving his players a pep talk. In essence his statement was clearly a pep talk to himself.
As he read this speech there was no emotion as it was read in a monotone with the pitch breaks indicating fear and loudness bursts indicating anger.
He is incomplete denial as he convinces himself that “in his heart” he knows he didn’t do these disgusting acts.” He then goes on to share too much information about his sex life stating his “wife was his only sexual partner, only after marriage”. This “only after marriage” statement is to convince himself and others how moral and chaste he considers himself and how sexually pure he is. But that is far from the truth. When someone gives away too much information, it is usually a signal of deception.
Sandusky very well knows what will happen to him during the sentencing as he has mentally prepared himself by stating that he asks “that he has the strength to surrender himself to God regardless of the outcome.”
The outcome will be that he will leave prison in a pine box and spend the rest of his days in solitary confinement for his own protection as a sexual predator. This could be the worst punishment for someone who spent his life in the limelight and has had the adulation of thousands of people If by chance he does encounter other inmates, he will most likely be getting a taste of his own medicine.
