UPDATE: Jerry Sandusky Back Behind Bars as More Accusers Come Forward
Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested and jailed yesterday on new charges for allegedly abusing two more young men. Sandusky is already facing 40 counts for sexually abusing eight boys.
Sandusky couldn’t post the new bail set at $250,000, so he was checked into Centre County Correctional Facility. Once he is released, he’ll have to wear an ankle-bracelet monitor, avoid all contact with minors and stay away from the Penn State campus.
According to statements released by the attorney general’s office, one of the alleged new victims was taken to the Sandusky home where he was allegedly sexually assaulted while Sandusky’s wife was at home. According to the statement, “The victim testified that on at least one occasion he screamed for help, but no one ever came to help him.”
This situation keeps going from bad to worse. Our thoughts are with the families stepping forward, it takes a lot of courage to do so.
UPDATE: 1:00PM EST
Jerry Sandusky’s wife helped the former Penn State coach post his $250,000 bail this morning according to TMZ. The records show Sandusky’s wife forked over a $50k personal check in addition to Jerry using $200,000 in real estate holdings to post the bail. It’s not clear if/when Jerry was released from custody.
