Based on this trial, it sets a precedence that so long as I can come up with a convincing enough story about someone from my childhood abusing me... and get the jury to believe it - devoid of and actual evidence, I would be able to put someone in prison?
There were witnesses who saw Sandusky raping a kid in the shower, raping a kid on the ground, and blowing a kid in the shower. How does your asinine theory work out now?

The term connotes that evidence establishes a particular point to a moral certainty and that it is beyond dispute that any reasonable alternative is possible. It does not mean that no doubt exists as to the accused's guilt, but only that no Reasonable Doubt is possible from the evidence presented.

I am not sure if he was or not. He wouldn't be the first gay man that got married to keep up appearances. But I don't think that would have anything to do with him being a pedophile. One could say he picked kids to keep it more of a secret, but that doesn't explain the attraction.
Gay men or women without mental issues are not attracted to children. Just as straight men and women without mental issues aren't.
It takes a real sicko to look at any child in that way and yet tons of folks do it every day.

Joe Pa died because he lost his job, when your that old you only need so much to put you over the edge.
Sandusky pervert did it.
