HARRISBURG, Pa. - After evaluation at SCI Camp Hillā??s diagnostic and classification center upon reception to the Department of Corrections, Jerry Sandusky today was transferred to the State Correctional Institution at Greene to serve his 30-to-60 year sentence.
While we normally do not discuss placement of inmates, this individualā??s notoriety called for the release of this information, Corrections Secretary John Wetzel said.
We make individual decisions based on facts. Given the high profile nature of this individual, coupled with the nature of his crimes, this makes him very vulnerable in a prison setting, Wetzel said. As such, he will be placed in protective custody at SCI Greene to ensure his safety while in custody.
Wetzel said SCI Greeneā??s staff, led by Superintendent Lou Folino, will continue to monitor and assess this inmate, as we do with all inmates, and make status adjustments as indicated.
Protective custody involves being housed in a single cell while under additional supervision and escort whenever out of the cell. Inmates in this type of custody are offered one hour of individual exercise per day, five days a week and showers three times a week. All meals are served and eaten in the cell. All prison services, such as counseling, religion, medications and treatment programming is delivered in-cell. Necessary medical and dental services are provided by clinical staff under escort of security personnel. All visits are non-contact. Protective custody inmates are permitted to possess a television, radio and other personal property as authorized by the prison and conditional upon their compliant adjustment.
SCI Greene, located in Waynesburg, Greene County, opened in 1994. It houses nearly 1,800 inmates. The facility employs 700 individuals.
