Jerry Sandusky was convicted Friday of sexually assaulting young boys. He was put on suicide watch. This mugshot was released today.

Jerry Sandusky was put on suicide watch after being found guilty of 45 criminal charges related to the sexual assault of 10 boys over a 15 year period.

Sandusky, 68, was put in protective custody in an area separate from other inmates as he waits for his sentencing, CNN reported.

He will be under close watch until that hearing.

In addition, Sandusky's defense team announced plans to appeal the verdict that will likely put the former Penn State assistant football coach in jail for the rest of his life.

Sandusky was convicted Friday of 45 of 48 counts related to the abuse, after two days of jury deliberation.

Those close to him -- even his attorney -- were almost certain the man would be convicted.
