(FOX NEWS) -- Jerry Sandusky, in a surprise move on the day before his child sexual abuse sentencing, took to the airwaves Monday to make a statement from prison pleading his innocence.
The former assistant Penn State coach, convicted of 45 counts of abuse, claims the case was based on "false allegations," and he laments that he didn't have "a fair opportunity to prepare for trial."
"In my heart, I know I did not do these alleged disgusting acts," Sandusky said on ComRadio, a student-run station at Penn State. "A young man who was dramatic a veteran accuser, and always sought attention, started everything. He was joined by a well-orchestrated effort of the media, investigators, the system, Penn State, psychologists, civil attorneys and other accusers. They won."
Sandusky and at least some of his victims plan to address the judge Tuesday at his sentencing, a proceeding that may last less than two hours, lawyers said after a closed-door meeting Monday to iron out logistics ahead of the hearing.
