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.

These victims should join together in a class action lawsuit against Penn State for billions of dollars, and turn the institution into a community college!

For your information. PSU is also Portland State University, and that university has nothing to do with the investigation.

FWIW, Penn State University, or PSU, is NOT the University of Pennsylvania, or UPENN.  UPENN is Pennsylvania's Ivy League school.  Go Quakers!

This entire case is absolutely disgusting.

Penn State officials basically allowed this guy to roam free and hold his own molestation camp where he could pick and choose boys he wanted to molest.

There was already a charge against him for molestation before he even founded his camp! They guy is so sick that he founds a camp just so he can molest more children. And Penn State officials did nothing about it.

I feel horrible for all of the people that had their childhood's ruined and their lives scarred because of this man.

How can you let a perverted man cover-up the wrong doings of their regime and their be nice young 18 year old nubile boys walking amongst them and they are wearing shorts too!  How do you justify that behavior and cover-up the idea????  Something is really screwed-up with the University of PA??  C'mon people it is a cover-up of giant proportions.  Michael Jackson cover-up of giant proportions too.  And all he was doing was sleeping with kids????  Be real people the older man and the younger man put 1 and 1 together and what do you get....a cover-up and disgrace to the UofPA and the state of PA, the student body and the entire area around the campus.  You have crimes being committed and a conspiracy to cover-up.  These are felonies and if these dudes like sex then they can go have prison sex.

If I hear one more person say that Joe Paterno is a "great man", I think I will scream and then puke. Not only is he not a great man now, he has not been for a long, long time (if ever). How can anyone even utter that? Because he could coach a football team well??  Really??

He knew a child was raped in his own facility by a fellow staff member, and he did pretty much nothing about it. Those supporters of Joe who were out there chanting tonight are so sick in the head that they just can't see it. It makes me ashamed to be a sports fan. I don't want to be lumped in with types like that.

Sandusky lived next door to Paterno. He was a former coach of Paterno. He has been showing up at the facility up through last week. Get a clue.

If an employee of yours told you that another employee was in the shower with a 10 year old boy would you just report it to your "boss" and wash your hands of it or would you call the police???? What if it was your son, would that be ok?

Paterno probably covered his legal obligation by reporting to his "boss" but he can never say he covered his moral obligation because he and the grad assistant should have called the police. Let them sort it out NOT the university. Call the university if they are trading jerseys and rings for tattoos.
