UNDATED (CBS) -- Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky faces sentencing Tuesday. His lawyer says Sandusky will speak in court and proclaim his innocence.
Jerry Sandusky is scheduled to be sentenced on 45 counts of child sex abuse. The 68-year-old former assistant football coach at Penn State faces a maximum of 442 years in prison. He's expected to spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Sandusky has been in isolation in a county lockup since his conviction in June. He has been receiving visits from his wife, Dottie, and several former players.
His attorney, Joe Amendola, says Sandusky spends his days exercising, reading, and preparing the statement for his sentencing. Amendola says Sandusky will again insist on his innocence, and will not ask for mercy.
After sentencing, Sandusky will be sent to a state prison facility called Camp Hill where he will undergo several weeks, or perhaps months of psychological, and medical evaluations. Then, he will be transferred to what officials call his "home prison."
Several of Sandusky's victims are expected to make statements at his hearing including the young man known as Victim Number 5. Victim Number 5's attorney Thomas Kline says, "My client knows what happened in that shower back in 2001."
Attorney Thomas Kline says his client isn't seeking a specific sentence. He just wants Sandusky to tell the truth. Kline says, "It's unfortunate that a man who did these horrible deeds can't and won't come forward and say that he did them. That would be helpful."
Sandusky maintains he did not use his charity for at-risk kids to prey on boys, and is planning to appeal his conviction.
Several of the jurors who convicted Sandusky are expected to attend the sentencing hearing.
