Jerry Sandusky's son Jeffrey pleads guilty to 14 child sex abuse charges
The 41-year-old Sandusky entered guilty pleas a week before his trial was scheduled to start
Jeffrey Sandusky, the son of convicted sex abuser and former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, has pleaded to 14 counts of child-sex abuse charges.
The 41-year-old Sandusky entered his pleas on Friday. The charges include "soliciting sex from a child younger than 16 and soliciting child pornography," according to CNN. Two separate incidents -- one in 2013 and one in 2016 -- invoked the charges, which involved two different girls.
As a result of the plea, which was entered a week before Sandusky's trial was scheduled to start, he will be registered as a Tier III sex offender, the highest level for such an offender in Pennsylvania. The terms of the plea mandate that Sandusky serve 3-6 years in prison, but he could be jailed for up to eight years.
Sandusky will be sentenced on Dec. 18.
Jeffrey's father, Jerry Sandusky, is serving a sentence of at least 30 years for sexually abusing 10 young boys while he was an assistant at Penn State.
