Arrested again: Sandusky detained on more charges
Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State defensive coordinator who's arrest on 40 counts of sexual abuse of young boys last month set off a scandal that has embroiled the Happy Valley community, was arrested again on Wednesday and charged with nine more felonies of abusing two boys he met through his Second Mile charity. These two victims are officially the ninth and 10th men for whom Sandusky will face charges.
Sandusky thus far has been unable to post the $250,000 bail and has been taken to jail. If he is able to post the bail, he will be confined to house arrest and electronic monitoring.
Wednesday's new charges include four counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and two counts of unlawful contact with a minor. All six of those charges are first-degree felonies. He was also charged Wednesday with three third-degree felonies, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and a count of indecent assault.
All told, these new charges could land Sandusky in jail, at the maximum, for 141 years (in addition to those for the first 40 counts), and he could face a fine of up to $195,000.
