Jerry Sandusky is using his time in jail to write a follow-up to his 2001 autobiography, the unfortunately named "Touched," sources tell WJAC-TV. The former Penn State assistant coach, who is awaiting sentencing on 45 child sex abuse charges, is getting help writing his second book from his wife Dottie and the pair have exchanged so much paperwork that prison officials have suspended her written correspondence privileges, the sources say. Sandusky has been taken off suicide watch and prison officials describe him as a model prisoner.
Experts say that since convicted felons are banned from profiting from writing about their crimes, it is unlikely that Sandusky could make any money off a new book. Sandusky's first book is still on sale at Amazon.com, where the review rated "most helpful" suggests that "'Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story' will fit nicely in your bookshelf along such classics as 'Knifed: The O.J. Simpson Story,' 'Fondler: Confessions of a Pedophile,' and 'Avoiding Blue Dresses: Sexual Harassment for the Aspiring Politician.'"
