(WDAY TV) -- Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is found guilty of 45 counts at his child sex abuse trial.

Jurors announced the verdict under an hour ago after weighing 48 charges accusing him of abusing 10 boys over 15-years.

Sandusky was lead out of the courthouse in handcuffs shortly after the verdict was read. He said nothing as reporters shouted questions at him.

Prosecutors had put eight young men on the stand who said they were his victims. The defense case had consisted largely of character witnesses who defended Sandusky's reputation.

Sandusky didn't take the stand.

He could spend the rest of his life behind bars.
