Jerry Sandusky was transferred this morning from the county jail in which he has been incarcerated since his conviction on child sex-abuse charges in June to Pennsylvania’s State Correctional Institute at Camp Hill.

The 68-year-old former Penn State defensive coordinator was sentenced Oct. 9 to a 30-to-60-year term. After at least a week of tests and evaluations, he will be assigned a security risk level and will be sent to another state facility. At Camp Hill, his mental and physical health, education level and whether he needs treatment will be determined, according to the Associated Press. He continues to say he is innocent.

About 6,800 sex offenders are in the state’s prison system and Sandusky is expected to be moved to his “home prison” later this fall, the Harrisburg Patriot-News reported.
