(HARRISBURG, Pa.) — Former Penn State football defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky could soon be facing more charges in the child sex abuse case against him.
The Harrisburg Patriot-News reported Tuesday that Pennsylvania’s Children and Youth Services is conducting a probe into two new accusations that were opened within the last 60 days.
Should authorities confirm the authenticity of the allegations, it would mean Sandusky’s accusers are minors since the Children and Youth Services concerns itself only with victims who are under the age of 18.
The 40 current counts against Sandusky listed in the grand jury indictment involved boys over a 15-year period who are adults now.
Sandusky is currently free on $100,000 unsecured bond but his defense attorney Joe Amendola believes that if more charges are filed, the bail will be increased and that his client is “going to wind up in jail.”
