Jerry Sandusky could be in particular danger of sexual assault when he is sent off to prison this week.
Statistics compiled by the federal government show that sex offenders like the 68-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach are roughly two to four times more likely than other inmates to be sexually assaulted.
Sandusky will be sentenced Tuesday for molesting 10 boys over a 15-year period. He is likely to spend the rest of his life in prison.
His lawyer says he hopes the prison system takes steps to protect his client. The Pennsylvania Corrections Department won't disclose precisely what it plans to do but says it strives to keep all inmates safe.
