Sandusky can keep $900,000 in pension money
HARRISBURG, Pa. - October 11, 2012 (WPVI) -- Pennsylvania's public employee retirement system says Jerry Sandusky will get to keep more than $900,000 in state pension payments he received after his 1999 retirement from Penn State University.
The State Employees' Retirement System said Thursday it won't seek repayment of the money Sandusky received from 1999 to September 2012 because the state's forfeiture law does not authorize SERS to go after money paid before the date of a plea or conviction.
The agency notified Sandusky he will no longer receive his $59,000 annual pension following his conviction and sentence in the child sexual abuse scandal. Sandusky was sentenced Tuesday to at least 30 years in prison for sexually molesting 10 boys.
Sandusky's lawyer says the former Penn State assistant football coach will fight to keep his pension.
