The verdict is in and the jurors say Jerry Sandusky is guilty of 45 counts.
The child sex abuse case has rocked the Penn State community but many who gathered around the Centre county courthouse when the verdict was read say this is the outcome they were hoping for.
"I'm relieved," said Sheri Berry, a Bellefonte resident. "I think that a monster was taken out of our community today and that's a relief as a mother."
Originally there were 52 counts facing the former Penn State defensive coordinator. Three charges were dismissed and one charge was withdrawn by the prosecution during the course of the trial.
Still Sandusky was found guilty of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor, and endangering the welfare of children, all felonies.
"It's disheartening," said Nychol Shook, a Bellefonte resident that lives just blocks from the courthouse. "Knowing that someone could actually do that to a child. I have a seven year old, a thirteen year old, and a sixteen year old. To know that somebody at that age had to be put through that, it's just wrong."
Jurors started day two of deliberations by going over testimony of Mike McQuery, a former Penn State player and coach.
McQuery, a key prosecution witness testified he witnessed Jerry Sandusky rape a young man in the Penn State locker room in 2001.
All the time Jerry Sandusky maintained his innocence.
After Sandusky was led from the Centre country courthouse in handcuffs. The prosecution said the jury listened to the victims.
"It's what we were all looking for," said Bellefonte resident, Jordan Williams. "We were looking for him to be guilty and that's what we all had in mind, that he would be. Glad everything came through and justice was served."
