Report: one of two new alleged victims of Sandusky was a family member

Gerald "Jerry" Sandusky AP

Ugh.

Yesterday, the Patriot News reported that two new cases of alleged sexual abuse by former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky were being opened by Children and Youth Services of Pennsylvania.

Today, it’s been revealed by Sandusky’s lawyer Joe Amendola that one of those two cases came from allegations made by a member of Sandusky’s family. Both new cases involve individuals who are still under the age of 18 and were reported within the past 60 days.

The investigation of these cases are still in their early stages.

The assault with the family member allegedly occurred before Sandusky’s arrest earlier this month, but was not brought to the attention of authorities until after Sandusky was indicted on Nov. 4 with 40 counts of sex crimes against children.

If the allegations are true, the two new cases would be the first to involve victims who are still children; the other alleged victims who have come forward up to this point have been adults, even though the allegations of the sex crimes took place when they were children.

    just a sad story that can’t help but get worse.

  2. southernpatriots says: Nov 23, 2011 3:19 PM

    With the number of cases increasing almost daily, why is this alledged child predator and rapist out of jail? What is he doing walking around, visting Penn State campus as of short few weeks ago, and still a free man? Why can’t the D.A. ask for and receive a several million dollar bond, rather than $10K?!!!! D.A.–with new evidence coming in, you can amend the bond amount and remit that to the judge, amend it upwards for safety of the remaining children of the area! (or as some have posted, for Sandusky’s protection).

    This goes from terrible to even more terrible. Just when we think it can’t get worse, it does.

    God help these children! We have telephoned the Governor’s office and were told the victims are receiving help and assistance, but what about all these newly revealed victims?

    This might sound extreme but as a father of a young boy I hope they kill this guy.

  4. govtminion says: Nov 23, 2011 3:33 PM

    We now have our answer to the question, “How could this get any worse?”

  5. deadeye says: Nov 23, 2011 3:33 PM

    No surprise.

    In discussing this case with friends we had all agreed that this predator was capable of committing these crimes against any child, even his own adopted children. The list of victims, which is currenty close to two dozen, might actually grow into the hundreds. This isn’t a ten year problem, it’s AT LEAST a twenty year problem since OJ McDuffie stated that he heard rumors about Sandusky during his time at PSU. SMF was founded in 1977. Thus it’s entirely possible this has been going on for 34 years.

    How many people turned a blind eye to these crimes during his reign?

    Hopefully the next story is of this POS being re-arrested.This time he won’t have a judge connected to his Bend Over And Smile organization.He’ll be denied bail and put into a cage like the animal he is.

  7. kiopta1 says: Nov 23, 2011 3:49 PM

    Can’t we just have a burial at see with this guy like we did with that other monster. Then the school/organization can provide the funds and services to help these victims.

  8. cubano76 says: Nov 23, 2011 3:56 PM

    I don’t think he’ll ever make it to trial.

  9. onceuponatimeinsports says: Nov 23, 2011 4:01 PM

    The sickest scandal in sports history just keeps getting sicker….

  10. stairwayto7 says: Nov 23, 2011 4:09 PM

    Just wait until it comes out that not only Penn State hid this that the NCAA knew about it and did nothing!

  11. florida727 says: Nov 23, 2011 4:09 PM

    This just keeps getting more and more demented by the day. Someone explain to me again how after all these allegations, he’s still not in jail.

  12. nicosanchez02 says: Nov 23, 2011 4:14 PM

    It has been stated that, he has no children of his own, but has adopted 5 boys, I’m curious if he did any of this to them?

    Also what a shame that a news station allow this man air time to deny the charges, shameful!!

  13. gatorprof says: Nov 23, 2011 4:19 PM

    soflatrojan,

    We agree. If it were my kid, I am afraid that I would be driven to personally watch the life drain out of his perverted eyes.

    This is beyond sick….fallen world, absolute evil. I don’t see a way to look at this from a moral relativism perspective.

  14. johninpa says: Nov 23, 2011 4:22 PM

    It seems this guy is not in jail because too many people related to this case are involved in one way or another. I wouldn’t be surprised if the former attorney general, who happens to be our governor, is involved in some fashion as they never investigated even though is was reported to them (from what I have read). This may get a whole lot worse before it gets better, if it is ever really fully investigated. More than anything else, it shows how morally bankrupt those in power can become – protect the institution at all costs.

  15. SOBEIT says: Nov 23, 2011 4:41 PM

    First…who is the deranged individual who is putting thumbs down on any of these posts. The light of day needs to shine on you just as it has with Sandusky.

    Second – “southernpatriot”
    The reason he is out on bail is because the first judge was tied to Sandusky’s organization by receiving election funds from charity events hosted by Sandusky and did not recuse himself. He will have to deal with the court himself most likely. It just goes to show how many people are protecting Sandusky. But it is sickening that he gave Sandusky a low bail bond with no collateral required. At least now, the judge selected is from outside of the district since all other judges in the district have recused themselves from this case.

  16. southernpatriots says: Nov 23, 2011 4:53 PM

    SOBEIT: Thank you for the info. This makes us even sicker…judges protecting a child rapist? How insane has the judiciary become? …perverts.

  17. rtw1 says: Nov 23, 2011 5:12 PM

    Hey SOBEIT – the most likely answer to you first question is JS himself. I think by the end of the week he will be in jail. Unless he commits suicide first.

  18. cmack21 says: Nov 23, 2011 5:12 PM

    they need to execute this guy on national tv

  19. halo81 says: Nov 23, 2011 5:13 PM

    Throw him into general population as soon as possible.

    The guards will tell the prisoners and they’ll levy the sentence.

    It will be awesome.

  20. vikesfansteve says: Nov 23, 2011 5:18 PM

    Of course, with his adopted & foster children. I know from being from an adopted home that you are really just possession like a toy. An aquantince of mine was a Foster parent because you get a stipend of $20K or so per child to help the child for food, clothes, etc. They used that money to feed & cloth their own family of 6 kids and then gave the Foster children hand me down clothes & leftovers. They would take care of 5 Foster kids at a time. Evil.

    Sandusky is like that but he also raped the kid. Why not, he had no biological connection.

    I want to squeeze this turds head till his eyeballs pop out.

  21. dknjwalker says: Nov 23, 2011 5:25 PM

    OMG!!! Where is his wife in all of this…a drunken stupor??

  22. vikesfansteve says: Nov 23, 2011 5:43 PM

    Also Joe Paterno is a P.O.S. too.

  23. dlr4skins says: Nov 23, 2011 7:11 PM

    I hope its not to late for Joe Paterno and the rest of the enablers to become his next set of victims!

    You should all spend time in jail before hell!

  24. 10of14 says: Nov 23, 2011 9:19 PM

    dknjwalker, you answered your own question…she (his wife) is as guilty! This guy will NOT spend one day in prison. Yes, he will be put in jail later this week or next, but before he steps foot in a State or Fed prison, he will commit suicide.

  25. deadeye says: Nov 23, 2011 9:58 PM

    “Yes, he will be put in jail later this week or next, but before he steps foot in a State or Fed prison, he will commit suicide.”

    ============================

    Or, depending on how many Pennsylvania officials knew about this and did nothing, Sandusky will be “suicided”.

  26. 1buckeye76 says: Nov 23, 2011 11:09 PM

    feed him alive to Wu’s pigs

  27. therationalthinker says: Nov 23, 2011 11:12 PM

    Johninpa is on to something. I’ve heard there is a political contribution connection between the former DA now governor and the Second Mile Foundation in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    The real crime is that the former DA was informed and chose not to pursue the matter. The result is BIG campaign contributions and the Governorship, while the little kids continued to be abused.

    I don’t know why this isn’t being investigated. To me it is hard to believe. Why didn’t the DA do something?

  28. rocknroller11 says: Nov 23, 2011 11:16 PM

    Where in the hell are the Feds!!! They Jump right on dogfighting but not childern being raped!!

  29. randygnyc says: Nov 23, 2011 11:33 PM

    Sandusky has 7 (approx) foster and/or adopted children. The minute the story broke and I learned these children were not his biological kids, I prayed they had not been affected. These new allegations aren’t specific so I have no way to determine if it’s these children that were abused. It looks bad, though. Wouldn’t be surprised if he’s got 50-100 victims out there. Most won’t ever come forward now that there are enough known victims to mount antigorite prosecution.

  30. hooptie says: Nov 24, 2011 12:11 PM

    Throw him in jail yesterday, this is horrible that this a hole is free and wasn’t prosecuted over 10 years ago.

  31. tnayew says: Nov 25, 2011 12:13 AM

    I am at least one of the guys who’s putting thumbs down, but only on those posts that want to kill. I will ask soflatrojan: If you were in a room alone with Sandusky and you had the opportunity (and were able to get away Scott Free) would you kill him before or after any trial? This goes for any of the others here that want to kill him. SOBEIT, can I hear from you?

  32. trapshoot says: Nov 25, 2011 11:39 PM

    Throw him in prison with the general population andseehow long he lasts.
