Posted: Updated:

Jerry Sandusky was transferred to Camp Hill prison this morning according to prison officials.

The warden at the Centre County Prison said Sandusky, who was convicted in June on 45 counts of child sex abuse, arrived at the State Correctional Institution at Camp Hill around 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

He will be processed, tested and evaluated and evaluated at Camp Hill. It'll be a week or more before he's assigned to one of the state facilities to serve out the rest of his 30 to 60 year sentence.

Exactly two weeks ago, Judge John Cleland sentenced the former Penn State defensive coach; he gave Sandusky credit for 112 days served in Centre County.

Sandusky's attorney's have asked Cleland to throw out Sandusky's conviction. They say they did not have enough time to prepare for the trial.
