The attorney for Jerry Sandusky says the former Penn State assistant football coach plans to assert his innocence during a sentencing hearing in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday.
Sandusky, 68, could face up to life in prison after he was convicted on 45 counts of child sex abuse.
Attorney Joe Amendola said Monday his client has been working on a statement that he plans to read in court.
In June, jurors found that the former defensive coordinator had used his access to university facilities to sexually abuse 10 boys over a 15-year period.
The scandal led to the firing of legendary head football coach Joe Paterno and the ouster of the university's longtime president Graham Spanier.
