PENN STATE

More Charges Filed Against Sandusky

Former assistant Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested Wednesday on new charges of child abuse, raising the number of victims from eight to 10. The new charges include four counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and two counts of unlawful contact with a minor, the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office said. One victim, identified as Victim 9 in court documents, testified to the grand jury that Sandusky’s wife, Dottie, was home while the victim was being abused and “on at least one occasion, he screamed for help, knowing Sandusky’s wife was upstairs, but no one ever came to help him.” Victim 9, now 18 years old, reportedly met Sandusky through the Second Mile, the charity that Sandusky created and authorities believe is where he met all his victims. Sandusky is currently being held on $250,000 bail on the new charges.
