isgraced former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted last week on 45 criminal counts for sexually abusing 10 boys, could retain his $59,000 annual pension while he is in prison. While he awaits sentencing, Sandusky is still collecting his monthly $4,908.17 pension check. According to CBS Philly, sex-related offenses are not on the list of 22 crimes for which a former Pennsylvania employee could lose his or her pension. Currently, a handful of bills are before the Pennsylvania legislature seeking to expand that list of crimes. A spokesperson for the State Employees' Retirement System would not comment on Sandusky's case.
