The son of Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State University assistant football coach convicted in 2012 of sexually molesting young boys, has been accused of a similar crime involving girls.
Pennsylvania state police arrested 41-year-old Jeffrey Sandusky, who was arraigned on Monday and charged with 14 counts including statutory sexual assault, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, photographing, videotaping, depicting on computer or filming sexual acts, unlawful contact with a minor, sexual abuse of children and other charges. The criminal complaint was filed in court in Bellefonte, a town near the university’s main campus.
According to officials, the charges stem from an investigation that began in November 2016. Sandusky allegedly sent text messages to one of the victims seeking naked photographs. He also was accused of soliciting oral sex and naked pictures from the teenage daughter of a woman he was dating and living with, and allegedly told the young girl to delete the demand.
According to court documents, the girl had this response to Sandusky’s overtures:
“No, we don’t need to talk and we aren’t going to. You did what you did and I’m not going to give you a chance to try and justify it. You literally tried to guilt me into doing it and you even told me specifically what I ‘needed’ to do. You know who does that? Rapists and abusers, not stepdads who care about their stepdaughters. I don’t know how many times I need to tell you no and to stop before you get it.”
Sandusky’s father, 73, former assistant football coach at college football powerhouse Pennsylvania State University, was convicted in June 2012 on 45 counts of sexually abusing boys over a number of years, garnering a prison sentence ranging from 30 to 60 years. Some of the abuse took place on campus, sullying the reputation of the school, and shaking the culture of major college football.
Jeffrey Sandusky appeared in court on Monday. According to court filings, bail was set at $200,000.
