Jerry Sandusky was taken out of his home in handcuffs by the Centre County District Attorney’s office on Wednesday afternoon to face two new criminal charges of child sex abuse. He was sent to the county jail after being unable to post the $250,000 bail.
“Today’s criminal charges were recommended by a statewide investigating grand jury, based on evidence and testimony that was received following the initial arrest of Sandusky on November 5th,” Attorney General Kelly said in a statement.”
Press Statement from Attorney General Kelly:
According to the grand jury, Victim 9 first encountered Sandusky in approximately 2004, while participating in a summer camp organized by The Second Mile, when he was 11 or 12 years old. Sandusky allegedly approached the young man, engaged him in conversation and expressed an interest in spending more time with the child.
Kelly said Sandusky allegedly took the boy to numerous Penn State University football games and gave him gifts and money.
Later, the grand jury found that during overnight stays at Sandusky’s home, behavior such as hugging, rubbing, cuddling and tickling – initially viewed as acts of affection – escalated to sexual assaults. Additional sex acts were allegedly performed in the swimming pool and Jacuzzi of a hotel in the State College area, at times when the pool area was not occupied.
According to the presentment, Sandusky told Victim 9 that he loved and cared for him and urged him to keep their activities secret.
In the case of Victim 10, the boy was referred to The Second Mile in 1997, when he was 10 years old, at the recommendation of a counselor because of difficulties in his home life. Sandusky allegedly approached the boy during a summer camp and later made arrangements to take the boy to several Penn State Football games where the boy played football at Holuba Hall on the Penn State campus before the game, attended “tailgate parties” prior to the game and spent time at the Sandusky home.
The real questions is, just how many child boys did Jerry Sandusky sexually assault and abuse? So far ten have come forward. The initial child sex scandal allegations that rocked Happy Valley and brought down Joe Paterno are only the tip of the iceberg. As we all know, there is no such thing as a one time child rapist.
Sandusky’s attorney, Joe Amendola, said he was “disappointed by the latest tactics” of the AG’s office. Boo-hoo. So sorry if we don’t provide courtesies to scum of the earth child predators. Funny, we are all disappointed that your client is a dirt bad child molester.
“by going to Jerry’s house unannounced without so much as giving me a courtesy phone call as his attorney. I had to hear it from the media. We’ve always offered to turn him in if there were new charges.”
