Records show Sandusky began receiving his $59,000 pension in 1999.
After being convicted last week, Sandusky is still getting that pension, at a rate of $4,908 a month.
Prosecutors can only request that a person's pension be forfeited after they are sentenced and if they have been convicted of an Act 140 crime.
Act 140 does not include violent crimes, such as rape.
According to Attorney Jim Kutz, "And regrettably the crime that Mr. Sandusky was found guilty by this jury probably don't comport with the perimeters of the statute."
Currently, there are six proposed bills that would amend Act 140. However, even if those bills were passed, Sandusky would still get paid according to Kutz.
Kutz said stripping Sandusky of his pension would be nearly impossible.
