Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky's sentencing for his conviction on sexual abuse has been scheduled for Oct. 9.

The announcement comes two days after the Penn State football team won its first game following the firing and death of Joe Paterno.

This morning, Judge John M. Cleland released the sentencing date and also called for a hearing to determine if Sandusky should be classified as a violent sexual predator. The sentencing will follow that hearing, the judge said.
