Posted on 12/07/2011 11:09:58 AM PST by ColdOne
Jerry Sandusky has been taken out of his home in handcuffs by the Centre County District Attorney's office to face two new criminal charges of child sex abuse.
"Today's criminal charges were recommended by a statewide investigating grand jury, based on evidence and testimony that was received following the initial arrest of Sandusky on November 5th," Attorney General Kelly said in a statement.
Sandusky is scheduled to appear in court next Tuesday, December 13, for his preliminary he

Hopefully, they keep him in the slammer this time.
He’ll be home in time for SportsCenter.
Nobody like pedophiles or homosexual pedophiles.
ESPN will tape it, and then sit on it for 9 years claiming it isn’t their job to report stuff like this.
If EVER there was a company worthy of boycotting, it’s ESPN.
AND Blagojevich gets 14 years.......it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood..............
In this particular case I don’t mind but I absolutely hate the idea of handcuffing everyone who is arrested no matter what the risk.
Yeah, I know it is “for the cops protection” and that makes anything they do OK.
I remember an article by Jeff Cooper in which he said that it was illegal in ancient Rome, to place a citizen in shackles for any reason.
I wouldn’t go quite that far but they should never be used on people just because they happen to be near a criminal scene.
I think the younger policeman was afraid of a back door attack.
The DA did that for show. I’m sure he’s loving the fact that he’s been handed the Great White Defendant on a silver platter.
Sandusky’s a monster but I don’t hold the bottom feeders in much higher regard.
Sandusky's attorney, Joe Amendola, said he was "disappointed by the latest tactics" of the AG's office -- "by going to Jerry's house unannounced without so much as giving me a courtesy phone call as his attorney. I had to hear it from the media. We've always offered to turn him in if there were new charges."
My guess is that they didn't want to take a chance on the lawyer giving him the heads up so that Sandusky could skedaddle.
Good! However, the bail is still too low—$250,000.
I realized they are a bunch of pervs over at ESPN during this year’s Little League World Series. There was a very handsome 12 year old, a great player, and a fine kid. One ESPN reporter kept gushing over him—not his playing ability, but his fine 6-foot frame; his handsome face, etc. etc. I hope that boys’ parents keep the kid away from ESPN reporters.
The bail is outrageously low. And they made one of the conditions of his bail that he not step foot on the Penn State campus. What’s so sacred about that soil? And why did the judge lower the bail from $1million? The guy has 10 accusers. Compare other cases with ONE victim, and the difference in bail is unbelievable.
It would have been better if Blago had nailed Rahm and Obama which he threatened to do.
I guess if he wants to survive jail ....
Roman citizenship was a privilege not the valueless birthright it has become in this country.
I had a sick feeling that his wife knew all along and this seems to support my suspicion.
The accuser said that Sandusky forced the boy to perform oral sex and attempted on at least 16 occasions to anally penetrate him, sometimes successfully. “The victim testified that on at least one occasion he screamed for help, knowing that Sandusky’s wife was upstairs, but no one ever came to help him,” the grand jury report said.
(...that Sandusky didn't resist arrest).
something doesn’t ring true. His bond was set at $250,000.
He apparently couldn’t raise the $25,000 to the bonding agent.
A man of his means should be able to scrape up that cash.
There is no question in my mind that his wife knew. Just like the other coach.
They should be prosecuted too if it ever could be proved.
His wife had to know something. If it were all on the up and up, she would’ve been down to visit the boy(s) in the basement either alone or with Jerry. She chose not to go down there when her conscience had to be telling her not to ignore these boys. She was the grand enabler. It’s disgustingly sick.
Wife knew and should be next. I think all of their kids were adopted.
I hope they get her next. The boys were being fed in the basement by Sandusky while everyone else ate upstairs.
I agree that his wife should be prosecuted. She is an accomplice to the assaults that happened at the their house. She hears screams from the basement and does nothing? What a sicko. Also, when they travelled out of town to bowl games together, did the wife get a separate room or what? She knew. There is just no way she didn’t know.
His home? The one that has an elementary school next to it?
she’ll just say she thought they were playful screeches that you hear during typical “horseplay”
She was probably so accustomed to hearing it - it didn’t phase her.
I’m sure she would, but as a juror, I would think, since when do the screams from a boy being anally raped sound anything like the screams he lets out while engaging in
“horseplay.” I’d say just admitting that she heard the screams would be the same as an admission of being an accomplice.
The sight of Jerry Sandusky repulses me, btw. I can’t believe that these mothers let him have the free access to these boys that they did. I would have told that creepy old man to stay the hell away from my sons. Just the idea of him wanting to spend time alone with them would have completely creeped me out.
Seriously, a 67 year-old man having slumber parties in his basement with random boys? On what planet is that even remotely normal?
Btw, I am more convinced than ever that Michael Jackson was a pedophile too. Sandusky and him fit the exact same profile.
Me, too. It's so horrible to think about what it may have been like for each of these kids.
There's something I've been wondering about, and maybe someone else here knows. We know that all of their children were adopted.
"Over the years the couple became the parents to Ray, now 46, a businessman living in Nashville, EJ, 41, former Nittany Lions player, and now a football coach at West Chester University, Kara, 38, a Penn State graduate, Jeff, 35, a former Marine, and 33-year-olds Matt, a Penn State graduate and Jon, who is Director of Player Personnel for the Cleveland Browns."

Apparently, Jerry and Dottie were married in 1966. Jerry is currently 67 and Dottie is 68. They would have been 21 and 22 at the time of their wedding. Their oldest is Ray, who is 46. He would have been born around 1965. It is said that 3 of the children were adopted as infants, so I am presuming he is one of those.
Jerry and Dottie were said to have adopted children because they couldn't have any of their own. Age 22 or 23 seems pretty young to me to determine that you "can't" have children after only a year of marriage. I'm speculating that Jerry was in a sham marriage with Dottie, because they adopted so early in their married lives.
Surely Dottie knows much more than she has let on. It's been staring her in the face for roughly 45 years.
That's an excellent point. Back in the day, doctors often told women they would never have children, even as early as their teens. Two of my sisters in law were told that. Possibly what drew Jerry to Dottie in the first place...
Agree. I think she was in a sham marriage and knew it, because they adopted so early in their married lives.
“He married Dottie Gross in 1966, the year he graduated from Penn State. He’d met her at a picnic the previous summer and although he was shy and awkward around girls, his mother pushed him to pursue the relationship.”
So maybe she was told she couldn’t have children, and he’s not attracted to women anyway. They have a marriage of convenience, and the rest is history.
Another option is she didn’t know she couldn’t have children, and Jerry “presented” himself as impotent. Either way, the end result is the same, and I think Dottie has known or suspected something “wasn’t right” about Jerry all along.
It is all the context...
Let’s say you are a financially struggling single mother.
Your son belongs to Second Mile because you are trying to help him advance his lot in life.
The founder of this wonderful place is a local legend - a football god. Why, my goodness, he is the “architect” of the PSU defense that defeated Miami! That stopped Vinny Testaverde!
Your son - like most male football fans in this area - regards PSU, Sandusky, and JoePa with awe and admiration.
And so - this highly regarded man offers to take your boy to games - to practices. My goodness! He even gets to “hang” with the Nittany Lions at the resort the night before home games!
What mother would deny this to their son?
Why would you suspect foul play, when you are told he is just going to “hang with the guys” for pre-game?
These are the Nittany Lions after all. It’s JoePa!
Pedophilia would never enter into their minds. Pedophiles are guys like.....Michael Jackson right?
Or the weird creepy guy that hangs at the playground without any kids of his own.
Pedophiles aren’t....football coaches right?
Married - successful, legendary coaches?
No....I don’t blame the moms. They thought they were doing their sons a favor. Their boys never had opportunities presented to them like this before.
And that is the truly evil, despicable side of this story....he had the perfect “cover”
He was a manipulative genius.
I would be censored at ESPN post-haste for the above comment.
meant to include you in the post above...
Her stupidity, if that was all it was, is now coming home to roost. When she begins to get a clue that he really did do all this stuff, imagine what she will feel like then.
I can see how a woman might miss some things happening. I can’t see how Dottie thinks that it’s okay that her husband showered with these boys. His words. He spoke them. And yet she dares to say that they’re making all this up?
I’m telling you, there’s a woman’s instinct. Maybe mine came after I birthed my first child, I’m not sure, but I know when my intuition kicks in. It’s that gut feeling that something just isn’t right, and I can’t shake it no matter how much I try to persuade myself otherwise.
I really believe that Dottie knew something, and it was more convenient to disregard her gut. She is really in for something when she finally starts to admit that she looked the other way all this time. It will be devastating for her.
