Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky can’t help it that he’s a disgusting, spineless, child-molesting, jerk. He was just born that way.

But in his mind, he’s nothing but a pure saint who’s being nailed to the cross for sins he didn’t commit. A modern-day Jesus Christ if you will.

Excuse us while we get our vomit bucket.

That desperate claim of innocence was at the heart of Jerry Sandusky’s bizarre statement, which he released to the media shortly before his sentencing Tuesday (Oct 9).

That is, when he wasn’t trashing the victims and accusing Penn State officials of conspiring to set him up. Right, because Penn State University has gained SOOOO much from this lovely scandal.

In his statement, Sandusky claims he’s been unfairly made out to be a “monster.” He swears that he didn’t commit any of the horrible acts he’s been accused of.

“They can take away my life, they can make me out as a monster, they can treat me as a monster but they can’t take away my heart. In my heart, I know I did not do these alleged disgusting acts. My wife has been my only sex partner and that was after marriage. Our love continues,” Sandusky said.

“Before you blame me, as others have, look at everything and everybody. Look at the preparation for the trial and the trial. Compare it to others. Think about what happened, why and who made it happen,” he added. “Evaluate the accusers and their families. Realize they didn’t come out of isolation. The accusers were products of many more people and experiences than me.”

So Sandusky expects us to believe he was a choirboy, blushing, virgin bridegroom who’s been wrongly convicted of molestation because people misinterpreted his innocently showering with young boys because, you know, they have issues, not him?

And really, given the fact that one of the accusers is Matt Sandusky, one of his own adopted sons, does he really want to cast aspersions on other people’s families? If his own house isn’t clean, who is he to even go there?

Somehow, the Mariah Carey line from “Obsessed” seems very appropriate: “You’re delusional, you’re delusional / Boy you’re losing your mind.”

Jerry Sandusky, enjoy those 30-plus years in prison you shriveled, demented, old gutter rat.
