Jerry Sandusky faces 472 years in prison and at least $645,000 in fines, if he is convicted on all of the 48 counts against him.

That is the worst-case scenario.

The Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office confirmed the penalty breakdown on the charges Friday, the second day of jury deliberations.

Keep in mind that if convicted, sentences could be served concurrently rather than back-to-back.
