The Sandusky jury returned a verdict shortly before 10 PM this evening. A decorum order issued by Judge Cleland prohibited any transmission on the 48 counts until the trial was adjourned. That meant going over any final motions. No members of the press were even able to rush out of the courtroom upon threat of arrest.
I received an email from the court at 9:30 disclosing the verdict and saying court would convene twenty minutes later at 9:50. I have to say the court has kept the media up to date all day about every action of this jury, meal breaks etc.
The verdict of guilty on 45 counts mean he will serve the remainder of his life in state prison.
