Adopted Son of Jerry Sandusky Charged With Child Sex Crimes: Court Records
Jeffrey S. Sandusky, the son of disgraced former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, was charged with 14 counts, according to court documents.
An adopted son of former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky has been arrested on multiple charges of sexual offenses involving children, according to court records.
Jeffrey S. Sandusky, 41, was charged Monday with 14 counts, including soliciting oral sex, corruption of minors and statutory sexual assault, Reuters reported.
State police said they were informed in November that Sandusky was sending inappropriate texts to a teenage girl, WJAC-TV reported.
The girl’s father reported the messages to police, authorities said.
Sandusky had told the girl to erase his texts and not show them to anyone, police said. He asked for nude photos and oral sex, the wire service reported.
The teenager refused to delete the texts, and told Sandusky, “You did what you did and I’m not going to give you a chance to try and justify it,” according to a heavily redacted affidavit filed in Pennsylvania’s Centre County.
Sandusky had been living with the girl’s mother, who kicked him out in March after her daughter told her about the messages, according to the document. He also allegedly engaged in similar acts in 2013 with the girl's elder sister, authorities said.
Sandusky was ordered held in lieu of $200,000. He did not enter a plea.
He is one of six children adopted by Jerry Sandusky and his wife, Dottie, taken in by the family between 1969 and 1995. Matt Sandusky, another son, later became one of his accusers, but no charges were filed over those allegations.
Jeffrey Sandusky had been a vocal supporter of his father, and said the accusations against the 73-year-old were untrue.
Jerry Sandusky was arrested in November 2011 on charges he molested boys while an assistant coach at Penn State. He was convicted in 2012 of molesting 10 boys over a 15-year-period.
He is serving a 30-to-60-year sentence.
