Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, now serving time in a Pennsylvania prison for sexual assault on 10 young boys, is apparently corresponding with people outside the prison walls. And, much like letters from former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez, Sandusky's words reveal much, perhaps even more than he himself realizes. The usual caveats apply about the truthfulness of these letters, of course.

"I've been quite confined, always searching for purpose," Sandusky writes in a letter obtained by TMZ and dated May 19. "For now, my main purpose is to endure, learn from and grow form this experience. It is very challenging. I exercise, read, meditate and do a lot of writing. I've written and continue to write my account of what has happened."

Sandusky clearly has not accepted his conviction on 45 of 48 counts of sexual abuse as the final word on the matter. "An appeal is in process," he writes in a letter dated June 16, "but I don't know what to think. I would feel better if we could reveal all the information and unfairness." He writes that he has support from all over the country.

The letters, while short, hint at Sandusky's mindset, and how he is grasping for purpose. "God's light has warmed me with many letters of support and motivation," he writes. "My plan is to continue this battle until the last whistle blows. My hope is to serve even better purposes. Each day, my goal is to embrace each day as a gift. Never surrender except to God. Don't let our circumstances get the best of us. Understand God's presence and purpose. Remain as positive as possible. Exercise your mind, body, and spirit."

In another, he recounts, without additional context, an episode from his youth. "Today, I remembered my childhood, which took place about 20 miles from here. My dad and I were playing baseball, and he told me to choke up on the bat. I pulled it to my mouth and coughed on it. He knew he had a genius on his hands."

Sandusky is serving 30 to 60 years in prison. For the full letters, click here or see below.
