UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Fox 29 has learned the number of child-abuse in the Penn State sex-abuse scandal involving ex-coach Jerry Sandusky has more than doubled in the past day, and is closer to 20 victims.
There were eight victims named in the grand jury presentment and 40 charges leveled against Sandusky, a long-time assistant to Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno. Paterno was not named in the grand jury finding as violating any laws.
Sources tell Fox 29 since a press conference on Monday, the number of potential victims has more than doubled in the case.

Sounds to me like the Ped State prez, the Ped State VP, the Ped State AD, and Paterno himself would have been willing to sacrifice the entire under-12 male population to pedophiles in exchange for "maintaining" the glory of its football grandeur and dynasty.
It sounds to me that more than one of them "made a pact with the devil."
The guilty parties will get their just due once the prison doors shut behind them.
Joe Paterno has effectively been removed because of his complicity in the cover-up of Sandusky’s misbehavior, tarnished forever, despite his glorious, heroic and manly leadership that brought huge endowments to Penn State.
I call BS on the alumni associations who HAD to have some inkling what was going on, as this was an open secret within the Athletic Department and the alumni players who once played on the team. But in a conspiracy that would put the KKK to shame, the “old boys” held tight to this knowledge, knowing that to spill the beans would surely dry up the flow of cash.
The guy was there so long I doubt even this is close to the number of his victims.
It’s predators like Sandusky that the law needs to go after with all speed and focus.
Are we missing news from the kids and parents? If so many were involved, we must have some outspoken parents in this long history....somewhere. Who shut down the voices?
And everybody associated with Penn State football on an official basis knew it.
It was pretty brazen to be doing it in the showers. He must have thought he was untouchable for some reason.
Nobody’s so good at their job that they could be excused for this. There must be more people involved.
Read Anna Salter’s book on sexual predators. This was a typical grooming scheme.
The grand jury report shows the police cover up from 1998. Google it and ye shall find...
I suspect the NAMBLA-type folks keep a pretty tight network. I would not be at all surprised if others in the administration or board weren't sharing in the spoils.
Agreed. It is probably in the hundreds.
How long before Sandusky commits suicide?
It's pretty clear that Sandusky’s behavior was common knowledge among the upper levels of the football program.
This is truly sickening.
... and he wrote an autobiography titled “Touch”. Someone said he was an egomaniac.
A couple of decades ago, there was a superior court judge in King County, WA (basically Seattle) who worked the juvenile courts who brutally and sexually abused young boys caught in the judicial system. It was known by many people in the King County justice system and in the media, but covered up until the Seattle P-I finally decided to do a story on it. His name was Judge Gary Little and when the paper refused to spike the story, killed himself with a gun. Little would actually check out little boys for the weekend so he could abuse them both sexually and physically. Everyone who should have known it did nothing to protect those boys.
We're U Michigan fans in my family (daughter graduated there in '10) and we know how we would feel if the football program there had covered up for a pedophile rapist for AT LEAST 13 years.
This is so disgusting. He was recruiting boys from a program for troubled youth he founded. He could just take his pick.
They need to go beyond the screenings they do, and dig deeper. The predators seem to be people with clean records.
It seems like these cases are happening more. There are probably others happening right now that haven't been discovered yet.
It can cloud all the people doing good work.
This Sandusky guy really needs to drug out in public and shot Ghaddafi style.
I agree. What a disgrace and a shame all around.
What does the good book say about millstones in these cases?
