Jerry Sandusky thinks society owes him better treatment in the pokey.

Former Penn State assistant coach child molester Jerry Sandusky would like the state of Pennsylvania to give him an upgrade:

HARRISBURG, Pa. — A lawyer for former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky said Friday his client has gotten his fighting spirit back after his child abuse conviction and sentencing and hopes prison officials will find a way to house him under less restrictive conditions than he currently experiences. …

Rominger said Sandusky, 68, rates as a Level 2 inmate on a five-level security classification but is being kept under much more severe Level 5 conditions. He said Sandusky is alone in his cell for 23 hours a day during the week and around the clock on weekends.

Rominger said Sandusky has been allowed two phone calls a month, while other Level 5 prisoners get only one. Sandusky also has been issued a television, which Rominger said would not be the case for a typical Level 5 prisoner.

He said he planned to write to the prison’s warden.

“We’re not completely devoid of common sense,” Rominger said. “We understand the prison system is trying to balance their concerns about physical safety. We are just looking for middle ground.”

Right. Jerry Sandusky is not “completely devoid of common sense.” His request should be rejected on that statement alone.
