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. His bail was set at $250,000.
“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.”
The new charges come following grand jury testimony from two additional young men, identified as Victim 9 and Victim 10, who were allegedly targeted by Sandusky when they were children.
“As in many of the other cases identified to date, the contact with Sandusky allegedly fit a pattern of ‘gromming’ victims,” Kelly said, “Beginning with outings to football games and gifts; they later included physical contact that escalated to sexual assaults.”
