The New York Times is reporting that Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach who was charged last month with 40 counts of sexual abuse against eight boys, was arrested again on new sexual abuse charges after grand jury testimony by two additional accusers.
Both of the accusers testified that they, like the eight other alleged victims, met Mr. Sandusky through the Second Mile charity he founded in 1977. One of the accusers testified that he met Mr. Sandusky in 2004 when he was 11 or 12. He told the grand jury that Mr. Sandusky sexually assaulted him over a period of years, raping him and forcing him to perform oral sex.
Sandusky, in the center of the Penn State sex scandal and cover-up, will apparently spend the night in jail. His has bond has been adjusted from $100,000 to $250,000.
