Police are investigating two new cases against Penn State alleged perv Jerry Sandusky this time involving accusers who are still children. Up until now the charges against him all stemmed from now-adults who claim the abuse happened when they were children.
At around the time that the lawyer representing Jerry Sandusky in the child sex-abuse case against the former Penn State defensive coordinator said he feared his client might face more charges, a Pennsylvania newspaper reported Tuesday that two more cases involving children have been opened by Children and Youth Services.
The cases, opened less than 60 days ago, are still in the investigative stages, the Patriot-News of Harrisburg reported, but if they are found to be credible, these would be the first known cases to be reported since Sandusky’s arrest that involve current children. The other publicly known cases of alleged victims coming forward have involved adults who were allegedly abused as children.
Sandusky faces 40 counts of child molestation, including rape. He is accused of molesting eight boys over a 15-year period.
Meanwhile, the lawyer representing Sandusky told ABC News Tuesday that he fears his client will be hit with new charges and will be unable to make bail.
“My concern is if they bring new charges based upon new people coming forth, that bail’s going to be set, and he’s going to wind up in jail,” Joe Amendola told ABC.
Sandusky is currently free on unsecured bail but could face a second arrest and new charges if any new victims are found to be credible.
Amendola also said in the interview that if his client is guilty he should go to prison for life, adding that he is innocent. He questioned why prosecutors didn’t arrest Sandusky sooner if they believed him to be a sexual predator.
SMH… They say he could be arrested again if the investigations turn up enough evidence, and this time it’s unlikely he’ll be able to post bail.
Poor thang? We think not.
