Jerry Sandusky probably will be locked up for the rest of his life, which would extract justice for his victims and provide protection for other potential victims in Pennsylvania.
But what about abuse victims closer to home?
The day after Sandusky, a former Penn State University football coach, was convicted of 45 child sex abuse charges, a dance teacher in Omaha made his first court appearance to face charges of sexually abusing three boys he had taught.
In late May, a Douglas County sheriff's deputy caught a 28-year-old man sexually assaulting his former girlfriend's 10-year-old sister in a pickup truck. In early May, a former Omaha youth football coach was convicted of sexually assaulting a girl from the age of 6 to 11. In March, a former youth pastor from Victory Fellowship Church in Council Bluffs was convicted of sexually abusing a teenage boy from the church.
