(AP) - KEY DEVELOPMENTS: Jerry Sandusky was found guilty on 45 of 48 counts of sexually assaulting 10 boys over 15 years, convictions that will likely leave him in prison for the rest of his of life.

Almost immediately after jurors, who deliberated over two days, read their verdict, Judge John Cleland revoked his bail and Sandusky was taken from the courthouse to the county jail to await sentencing in about three months.

ODDS AND ENDS: Victim 6 was in the courtroom when the verdicts were read and broke down in tears. Outside, after the verdicts were announced, a roar of approval cascaded across the courthouse lawn. Inside, Sandusky's family and friends, including his wife, Dottie, were quiet. As Sandusky was led out, he half-waved at them.

WHAT'S NEXT: Processing and paperwork. The judge ordered a pre-sentencing report, which could take anywhere from one to two months to complete. Sandusky's lawyers said they planned to appeal the verdict.
