Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky sentenced to 30-plus years

Jerry Sandusky was sentenced Tuesday to at least 30 years in prison — effectively a life sentence — in the child sexual abuse scandal that brought shame to Penn State and led to coach Joe Paterno’s downfall.

A defiant Sandusky gave a rambling statement in which he denied the allegations and talked about his life in prison and the pain of being away from his family.

Three victims spoke, often fighting back tears. One looked Sandusky in the eyes at times.

The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant coach was found guilty in June of 45 counts of child sexual abuse, convicted of molesting 10 boys over a 15-year period. Witnesses said Sandusky used the charitable organization he founded for troubled children as his personal hunting ground to find and groom boys to become his victims. READ FULL STORY

'Sons of Anarchy' actor found dead, suspected of murder

EW has confirmed that 28-year-old actor Johnny Lewis — best known for playing Kip “Half-Sack” Epps on two seasons of Sons of Anarchy — was found dead outside a home in Los Feliz, Los Angeles on Wednesday. An LAPD rep says that Lewis is also a suspect in the murder of his landlord, 81-year-old Catherine Davis, whose body was found inside the residence. It appears that Lewis may have fallen from the building’s roof, though his cause of death has not yet been confirmed.

“The best we’re piecing together now is that it appears that some type of altercation occurred inside of the house resulting in the death of the woman, then this individual ran outside, had an altercation with a couple of neighbors, ran back into the house and by the time we got here, he had fallen or had somehow died on the driveway,” LAPD Commander Andrew Smith told a local ABC affiliate.

Lewis was written out of Sons of Anarchy in season 2. “Johnny wasn’t happy on the show. Creatively, he really wanted out of his contract. We had ongoing conversations, and we decided we’d find some noble way for him to go,” SOA creator Kurt Sutter said in 2009.

A rep for Sons of Anarchy has not yet responded to EW’s request for comment. UPDATE: SOA creator Kurt Sutter has tweeted about Lewis’s death, calling it “a tragic end for an extremely talented guy, who unfortunately had lost his way.”

Lindsay Lohan arrested for striking a pedestrian with her SUV

Lindsey Lohan was arrested in downtown New York last night after a pedestrian told police she hit him with her SUV. A spokesperson for the New York Police Department confirmed that the actress was charged with leaving the scene of an accident — a possible misdemeanor — at approximately 2:30 a.m., after a 34-year-old Hispanic man claimed Lohan’s black Porsche Cayenne SUV struck him in his knee as she was driving down an alley near the Dream Hotel on West 16th Street in Manhattan. The man was taken to Bellevue Hospital.

No alcohol or drugs were suspected to have played a role in the incident, and Lohan was released with a desk appearance ticket after being processed at the police station. No bail was required. The accident could impact her probation, with or without a conviction.

Amanda Bynes pulled over again

Amanda Bynes had another run-in with the law when she was pulled over for driving on a suspended license by a Southern California airport.

Burbank’s Bob Hope Airport spokesman Victor Gill says airport police cited the actress and impounded her car Sunday.

He said in a statement that “police did cite Amanda Bynes for driving a vehicle with a suspended drivers license this morning.”

Bynes’ driving privileges had been suspended after she was charged with hit-and-run in connection with two traffic crashes.

Los Angeles prosecutors accused Bynes of leaving the scene of two accidents, one on April 10 and another on Aug. 4, without providing proper information. The first incident occurred just days after Bynes was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. She has pleaded not guilty in that case.

The 26-year-old is best known for her role in the WB’s What I Like About You and the film Easy A.
