Jerry Sandusky Moved to Camp Hill Prison

Jerry Sandusky was transferred out of the county jail to Camp Hill Prison early on Tuesday morning, a spokeswoman for the Centre County Correctional Facility said. 

Sandusky, 68, was ordered to return to Centre County Correctional Facility for at least 10 days after he was sentenced to 30-60 years in prison on Oct. 9. Judge John Cleland said Sandusky would then be sent to Camp Hill Prison, which is about two hours away from Centre County, where it would be determined whether he would stay there for the duration of his sentence. 

Cleland said he was giving Sandusky a life sentence, but Sandusky's defense team filed an appeal of his conviction on Thursday. Sandusky was convicted on June 22 on 45 of 48 counts of child sexual abuse and maintains his innocence.
