The jury in the Jerry Sandusky case has reached a verdict that will be announced Friday evening, court officials announced.
The jury of seven women and five men deliberated about 20 hours over two days before reaching the verdict on the charges against the former Penn State University football coach.
Sandusky, 68, is charged with 48 counts of abusing 10 boys over 15 years. If convicted on all counts, he could face hundreds of years in prison.
Earlier, Joseph Amendola, Sandusky’s lawyer, told reporters that he would “die of a heart attack” if his client were acquitted on all counts.
