Child Molester Jerry Sandusky To Receive $211K In Back Payments
Former assistant football coach of Penn State University, Jerry Sandusky, who was charged and convicted of multiple counts of sexual abuse of children is set to receive back payments worth more than $211K.
According to the AP, the former Penn State coordinator is going to receive $211,000 in back payments from the Pennsylvania government after they wrongly cut off his retirement payments.
The State Employees’ Retirement System sent a letter to Sandusky’s lawyer last week, informing him of the payment and that his $4,900 monthly annuity will resume in January. The Associated Press obtained the letter on Wednesday.
A court ruled on Nov. 13 that the pension system was wrong to classify Sandusky as a university employee at the time of the sexual abuse crimes that were the basis of his pension forfeiture. It ordered the retroactive payments, along with 6 percent interest, and the pension system did not appeal.
Basically, Sandusky will be getting almost $5,000 while in prison, & he’s going to get back payments dating back to 2012.
