Jerry Sandusky was re-arrested on 12 additional charges of sexual abuse today. He was reportedly dressed in a Penn State track suit at the time of his arrest in State College. While "at least" five more people have come forward with allegations against the former football assistant since the original filing on Nov. 4, the newest charges detailed in an additional grand jury presentment only include charges from two additional victims, "Victim 9" and "Victim 10."


The presentment is viewable in full below. Victim 9—who told prosecutors that, like other alleged victims, he met Sandusky as a child participant in The Second Mile Program—first made contact with him when he was "11 or 12 years old." He is now 18. He alleges that Sandusky gave him "a number of gifts and even provided him with money" and "often spen[t] overnights" at the Sandusky home:

Victim 9 testified that, during his overnight visits with Sandusky, he always stayed in a bedroom located in the basement of the Sandusky home... Victim 9 testified that Sandusky specifically told him to stay in the basement unless otherwise directed by Sandusky. He ate meals in the basement and the food would be brought to him by Sandusky...

Victim 9 described a pattern of sexual assaults by Sandusky over a period of years. Many of these assaults occurred in the basement bedroom of Sandusky's residence. The victim testified that Sandusky forced him to perform oral sex on numerous occasions. Sandusky also attempted to engage in anal penetration of Victim 9 on at least sixteen occasions and at times did penetrate him. 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.


Victim 9 also described being brought to a hotel "in the State College area," where "Sandusky had him touch his erect penis and perform oral sex on him."

Victim 10, who said that he started at The Second Mile in 1997 at age 10, said that Sandusky often wrestled him and once "pulled the boy's gym shorts down and performed oral sex on him" during a wrestling session. He also described getting "gifts of clothes and shoes" from Sandusky, who "frequently" told Victim 10 that he loved him.

Sandusky's preliminary hearings begin next Tuesday, Dec. 13, at the Centre County Court in Bellefonte, Pa. His bail has been set at $250,000, and he will have to wear an ankle monitor if he is released.

Update: Mark Viera of The New York Times reports that Sandusky was unable to meet bail and has been committed to the Centre County Correctional Facility.
