The day before his sentencing, former Penn State football coach and convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky has released a statement from jail.

In it, Sandusky alleges that an enormous conspiracy has been working against him, starting with "a young man who was dramatic, a veteran accuser [who] always sought attention."

Sandusky goes on to say this man was "was joined by a well-orchestrated effort of the media," in conspiring to paint him as a monster, including "investigators, the system, Penn State, psychologists, civil attorneys and other accusers.

"They won," he adds. ‘I’ve wondered what they really won: Attention, financial gain, prestige… will all be temporary."


Also mentioned in the recording: how he was not treated to a fair trial; that his accusers are solely after money; and that he has only ever had sex with his wife.

Sandusky faces 400 years in prison and will be sentenced tomorrow.
