Posted on 12/08/2011 12:23:47 PM PST by FamiliarFace
Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky emerged from an overnight jail stay Thursday after posting bail on new charges that he sexually abused two additional boys, including one who said Sandusky assaulted him in his basement while his cries for help went unheeded.
Sandusky was driven from a Pennsylvania county jail to his home in the back seat of a grey sedan in the middle of a three-car convoy. The former coach kept his gaze straight ahead, clutching a manila envelope, during the short car ride.
He then went inside without answering questions from reporters.
Sandusky was arrested Wednesday and charged with 12 new child sex abuse counts involving two new alleged victims. In all, he faces more than 50 charges. He has maintained his innocence.
Sandusky secured his release using $200,000 in real estate holdings and a $50,000 certified check provided by his wife, Dorothy, according to online court records. He will be subject to electronic monitoring under the terms of his release.

Why are they being so deferential toward him?
I'm glad I'm old enough to kick his doughy ass. God help any nine-year-old boys that cross his path.
The Pennsylvania court system makes sure Jerry can keep a-courtin'.
too bad. He should have just sat there and rotted
I’d like to see charges brought against his wife, too.
Doesn’t any of his close friends with some handguns care enough to put him in a room with one and suggest that he “do the right thing”
The is me shaking my head.
She had to know. All those kids, and only Jerry was allowed to go down to the basement to check on them and bring them food? Where were her motherly instincts? She knew...and looked the other way.
The whole thing is despicable. Jerry doesn’t think he did anything wrong. Yeah, Jerry, showering with kids is normal behavior. Riiight.
“Why are they being so deferential toward him?”
Wel at least this judge is actually making him post a bond unlike that female POS judge (Dutchcot) who was also on the board of his foundation giving him a pass on having to put up anything to secure his release from jail the first time! That part of Pennsylvania should be fumigated!
52 counts, 10 victims (and counting), and all it’s cost him & his wife is a lousy $250,000. That’s less than 5 grand per count. This is what passes for justice.
“She had to know.”
She is on tape admitting that she knew about the abuse of one boy who spoke to her after he was an adult. She said her husband had a “problem” and was “in denial”.

It’s bail. The trial hasn’t started yet.
IMHO, the bail has been set far too low. That’s what I was getting at with my comment.
I have not seen that before, so if you could point me in the direction of that tape, I'd appreciate it.
Been thinking the same thing for a while now. You'd think that this was an opportune moment for the judge to revoke bail? Or maybe increase drastically? Beginning to think the judge is Lance Ito.
Maybe PSU bailed him out in exchange for a promise to stop wearing their Penn State jackets every time he gets arrested.
“She is on tape admitting that she knew about the abuse of one boy who spoke to her after he was an adult. She said her husband had a problem and was in denial.”
I might be wrong here (if so, sorry), but I believe you are thinking of Bernie Fine’s wife. She is the one whose phone conversation was released. Sandusky’s wife is supporting his innocence.
I was thinking that maybe nuconvert was thinking of Fine’s wife, too. Dottie has released a statement expressing Jerry’s innocence.
A child molestion operation is abetted by many. I got in trouble by calling the Catholic authorities who moved around the ravishers of boys “madams”.
Anyone who looks the other way; who plays down the crime is a part of the sex ring.
That is Fine from Syracuse, not Sandusky.”
You’re all correct. I mixed up my child molesters.
That is understandable, they way things are going we are going to have to have a scorecard to keep up.
