Some of the jurors who convicted Jerry Sandusky say they'll be at his sentencing and hope he'll be sent away for the rest of his life.

Four of the five jurors contacted by The Associated Press said they plan to attend the sentencing hearing Tuesday in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. A fifth says he'll read about it afterward and the other seven haven't been identified.

The 68-year-old Sandusky is likely to get a lengthy prison term from Judge John Cleland, given the serious nature of his convictions for child sexual abuse and the fact that he was found guilty of 45 crimes.

The former Penn State assistant football coach maintains his innocence and plans to appeal.
