Two new Sandusky child abuse cases opened

In one of the biggest signs yet that the scandal involving former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky is still intensifying, PennLive.com's Sara Ganim reported on Tuesday that two new cases of alleged child abuse by Sandusky are being investigated. Also, since the investigation on these two new cases is being done by Child and Youth Services in Pennsylvania, that means the two alleged victims are still under 18 today.

This is believed to be the first time Child and Youth Services has become involved in this investigation, as the other five alleged victims coming forward to assist the investigation are now currently adults (though all were children at the time of the alleged incidents). Under Pennsylvania state law, allegations of abuse made by adults are handled solely by the police; it's only when a minor makes an allegation that Child and Youth Services is used.

There is no word on when the alleged incidents in these newly opened cases occurred, just that the cases were opened within the past 60 days. Earlier, it was reported that a dozen new potential victims had come forward to Pennsylvania state prosecutors, though it is unclear whether these two new cases are the result of children coming forward before or after the 40 sexual assault charges were formally brought against Sandusky. Further, it should be noted that the cases have not resulted in any new charges being pressed, though that may certainly change once the investigations have concluded.

In an interview with Good Morning America on Tuesday morning, Sandusky attorney Joe Amendola said he believed more charges could be brought against his client, and he worries that the additional charges may result in Sandusky being sent back to jail. Amendola did not specify what led him to believe that more charges would be coming.

Sandusky's preliminary hearing on the charges is set for December 13 in Centre County court.

Two new Sandusky child abuse cases opened

I feel sorry for because after reading this comment i realized that the statement is true that people will not know how stupid you are until you open you mouth, and boy when you open you mouth alot of stupidity came fly out. First off this article has nothing to do race and for you mention it shows that you are ignorant racist and a coward. You would never said any of this crap in public or face to face to a black  person and you info sorely incorrect there are just as many whites in jail as well and most blacks are law biding citizens and stupid people like should never be allowed to speak because idiots like you are a danger to your self and everyone else you come in contact with my God bless you and I pray he can bless you with common sense because you are lacking in that department.

XSGame,

I too feel that Mr. Sandusky deserves to be sitting in jail right now.  The people that know what he has done and then did nothing about, or very little about it, should be sitting right there with him.  It is still up to the courts to make a judgement of guilty or not-guilty, but as we have seen in other high profile cases, even that judgement may not be right.

The legal system is bound by its own rules and regulations and there those that have walked becasue of those rules and regulations, which kept key testimony or important evidence away from the judges and juries as well as technical ways that arguments must be made, that entire system needs to be overhauled.

However, race has nothing to do with this case.  I am not saying race has not been a factor in other situations, but if you are so stupid to think that the jails are overflowing with your "black brothers" wrongly, think again.  Every sity in every state in this country has crime taking place nearly every single day and in many cases mutliple times each day where young black men are shooting ot attacking other young black men.  Most of these are drug or gang related because these young black men have done nothing with their lives.

Get an education, get a job and contribute to society.  Get married, stay married and be a role model to other young blacks so that the cycle is broken.  Do not waste your time in the strip clubs and other "gentlemen" clubs throwing money around and spraying champagne!  That is not what decent hard working people do. 

You are no different than some black so-called leaders like Jesse Jackson ar Al Sharpton to name a couple.  They have made great careers out of perpetuating race as an issue rather than really trying to help the situation.  Their attitudes, like yours are doing nothing to improve relations between whites and blacks.

Grow up, be American citizens, follow the laws and work hard to improve your lot in life rather than "stick to the man"! Celebrate your heritage, just as others celebrate theirs, but do not hide behind the moniker of "African American" to mean that everyone else owes you a living.

It kills me that his lawyer is AFRAID that these new charges might get him sent back to jail.  He should pray he DOES get sent back to jail.  That way he can't touch any more kids.  He got a sweetheart deal to be out of jail anyway.

At this point why isn`t this asshole in jail getting his asshole filled up ? This is rediculous. How could this guy have possibly pulled this type of behavior off with all the PSU staff around him ? Somebody or they were clearly looking the oter way. Nobody with this sickness could kep all to himself or not get caught in some precarious situation setting off alarms for those around him. this is absolutely rediculous.
With all hitting the news i am absolutely surprised this piece of shit has not committed suicide...........Prayers to all the victims.......

XSGame, eyewitnesses doesn't necessarily  mean a conviction.  Check out crownsports.blogspot.com it's a good article goes right after the cover up people and the money trail from Sandusky's charity The Second Mile to law enforcement and political offices.
