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.

Sandusky needs to be castrated!! It's not the victims fault! Most ten year olds I would think have no clue about pedophilia. I would hope not anyway. This whole situation makes me want to vomit! I'm sure more and more children will come forward now that they don't feel alone. These kids will be screwed up the rest of their lives. You know that the Penn State personnel knew what had happen and continued to let that piece of Sxxx to continue to use their facilities and never went to the police. The administration is as much to blame as Sandusky himself! His actions could have been stopped after the first time he got caught. What ashame!!

Each one of these alleged victims should have to look the other 19 in the eyes and apologize for not telling anyone sooner.  And do NOT give me this crap about they were scared, they were ashamed, blah blah...  Not that it's a media circuis we will all have to hear about how distraught they have been for the last (fill in the blank) years.   Shame on each of you for not reporting your victimization and thus allowing others to be preyed upon too.

  I bet NOW you will hear how "if we make him pay us money, maybe we can prevent him from doing this to others...."  Mind you, I have said nothing in this potential sicko's defense, only that (like with Cain) all these so called victims are coming out of the wood work.  No pun intended.   ha ha




I have been posting on CBSSports for over three years now. I have read some incredibly stupid things before, but this posting is the most disgusting, disturbing, assinine thing I have ever read. Someone is actually BLAMING a 10 yr old for not coming forward after being raped by a male adult. WOW!! Name one 10 yr old that WOULD come forward. If it had happened to me when I was 10, I would have been scared to death. Not only were these kids raped, but they were forced to live with it for the last 10-20 years. I can honestly say that if I were the parent of one of these kids, Sandusky would be DEAD now, and no jury in the world would convict me for it.

If CBS were smart, they would ban this idiot from ever posting on here again.

@steve4xmoron. Really? That's your take on this? That it's the victim's fault?
So if someone breaks into your house and shoots you I will be happy to blame you, saying "Well, if he had been quicker, had gotten a gun and shot the intruder first he wouldn't be dead. Survival of the fittest. Steve4x deserves to be chastised for dying a coward. "

It really doesn't matter what the number does, double, triple, or whatever.  The fact is that this sick and worthless SOB has negatively impacted the lives of many young men and he deservses to rot in hell.  There is no excuse for this type of behaivior to ever be inflicted on any human being.  As for Paterno, who knows?  In my mind I hold him as accountable as everyone else.  Yes he did report to his superior, but the fact remains that this was not someone telling him one of his players was out past curfew.  He should have taken the initiative to follow up on this as it involved one of his assistant coaches, and at last check the head coach is over the assistants.  Don't get me wrong, Paterno will go down as one of the greatest college football coaches ever, but this will scar his image forever, no way around it. Go to HELL SANDUSKY!!!!

You are an idiot. You are holding a 10 year old boy responsible for not stopping a sexual predator? I'm sure when you were sodomized at the young age of 10 by a supposed mentor you didn't feel a whole range of emotions and a strong desire to hope it would jsut go away.
Grow up, shut up, and stop posting this nonsense. You may actually hurt someone through your idiocy.

Steve4xfun - How you POSSIBLY put any blame on the victims here??? The only one to blame is that sick #### Sandusky and Penn State for brushing this under the mat. Sandusky and Penn State deserve everything that they have coming for them.

Hey Genius, if they did tell would anyone have believed them? It took at least two or three allegations before the ball started rolling in this case. Nobody wanted believe a PSU icon like Jerry Sandusky was abusing children. It has happened with cops. priests, and many more where the victims were not believed by those who they told because the perpetrator was above suspicion or highly regarded. That is WHY many states have passed laws where now it is a LEGAL obligation to report child abuse because many could not be trusted without the force of sanctions to report which is how it appears in this case.

Steve4ximbecile-  Save the commentary coming directly from the PSU hierarchy, that's roughly the most ignorant, despicable stance I've encountered so far on this heinous set of affairs.  The depths of abject stupidity required to reach such a cretinous conclusion simply boggle the mind....so I am forced to forgive you.

Actually, anyone with a sense of morality cares...apparently this does not include yourself.
