Third-party book sellers are attempting to push signed copies of Jerry Sandusky's autobiography for over $1,000 through online retailers following the former Penn State defensive coordinator's conviction on child sex abuse charges.
Amazon.com features an autographed copy from a seller with an asking price of $1,111, as well as non-autographed used copies for $131.79. Barnes & Noble's website has listings for copies with asking prices of between $255 and $422.69.
The autobiography, titled "Touched," was released in 2001 and is described by Amazon.com as "The story of Jerry Sandusky's life in his own words."
Sandusky was convicted Friday on 45 of 48 counts of child sexual abuse. Sandusky's-victims, former members of his Second Mile charity, testified during the trial-that he forced them to engage in sexual acts in Penn State showers, hotel rooms and the coach's basement over a period of 15 years.
Sandusky had pleaded not guilty and did not testify at his trial.
He faces up to 442 years in prison when he is sentenced in three months.
