On Monday, Pennsylvania state police commissioner Frank Noonan and attorney general Linda Kelly encouraged alleged victims of former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky to come forward and assist the state's investigation. Noonan and Kelly publicized two phone numbers for the potential victims to call in order to contact investigators. One day later, it looks as if their call has been heard.

According to Fox 29 in Philadelphia, the number of alleged victims in the Sandusky case has doubled, and now approaches 20. As of Monday, Sandusky had been charged with indecent acts against eight minors.

Sources tell Fox 29 since a press conference on Monday, the number of potential victims has more than doubled in the case.

On Monday, Pennsylvania state attorney general Linda Kelly said the Sandusky case was consideried an on-going investigation and more charges could be coming. 

According to the grand jury presentment, Sandusky's alleged sexual assaults on minors stretch back to his days as a Penn State coach, and more allegedly occurred in Penn State football facilities even after Sandusky had retired.

There have been no details about the new allegations publicized as yet, and though additional charges may yet be issued, Sandusky still faces the 40 charges he was issued on Friday. Thus, at this time the official facts about the Sandusky case remain the same.

Those with information have been asked to contact investigators from the Office of Pennsylvania Attorney General at 814-863-1053 or Pennsylvania State Police at 814-470-2238.

Report: Alleged Sandusky victim number doubles


where are all you JOEPA supporters now???????  paterno is just as huilty and is even more a hypocrite than he was yesterday.  there is NO WAY he didnt know what was going on.  and for sandusky to STILL be involved at the university AFTER paterno supposedly told the administration what was going on???

if paterno keeps his job, ohio state better be able to rehire tressel.  lying about a few kids making a few bucks on the side is not NEARLY as bad as this.

the other poster was right.  penn state fans and alumni deserve better than this.  i would add, though, so do their players and these kids who were harmed by the trust of sandusky AND paterno and what they reprresented the PSU football program to be.     &n
