The disturbing story of former Penn State assistant football coach and convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky took another dark turn on Monday, February 13, 2017. Sandusky’s 41-year-old adopted son Jeffrey has been arrested and charged with child sexual assault.
Jeffrey Sandusky was charged and arraigned in Bellefonte, Pa., according to WTAJ in Central Pennsylvania. Sandusky reportedly has been under investigation by Pennsylvania State Police since November 2016 following a child’s claims that he received text messages asking for nude photographs from the child. The child informed his father about the allegedly lewd texts, and the father notified authorities.
The criminal complaint cited in initial reports notes a second claim of child abuse dating back to 2013.
Bail has been set at $200,000 for Sandusky, who is prohibited from any contact with minors.
Jerry Sandusky is currently serving a 30-to-60-year prison sentence for serial child molestation over a 15-year span.
