Jerry Sandusky Arrested on New Charges

New charges have been filed against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

The latest charges follow grand jury testimony from two additional young men who were allegedly targeted by Sandusky when they were children. The Attorney General’s office says victim 9 first encountered Sandusky while participating in a summer camp organized by The Second Mile around 2004 when he was 11 or 12 years old.  Officials say Victim 10 was referred to The Second Mile in 1997 when he was 10 and met Sandusky at a summer camp.

Sandusky was arrested Wednesday on a dozen new charges, including indecent assault and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. He was taken to Centre County Jail after being unable to immediately post $250 thousand dollars bail. Terms of his bail also include electronic monitoring and house arrest.

In a news release, the Attorney General and State Police Commissioner emphasized that this remains an active and ongoing investigation.

Sandusky had already faced 40 counts of child sexual abuse involving eight boys identified during a lengthy grand jury investigation.  The new charges are based on evidence and testimony that was received after his initial arrest on November 5th.

The alleged incidents in the new charges occurred at a hotel swimming pool in the State College area, at Sandusky’s home, in a swimming pool on the Penn State campus and in a car.
