Jeffrey Sandusky, the adopted son of Jerry Sandusky, was arrested and arraigned February 13 on charges of sexually assaulting two minors.
Sandusky, 41, was targeted three months ago as a suspect of child abuse after a child voiced claims of having received sexually explicit texts from Sandusky, including some messages that requested naked pictures of the child, according to Wish TV.
Sandusky was charged with 12 felonies and two misdemeanors, including solicitation of sex acts and child pornography, unlawful contact with a minor, and corruption of a minor.
Currently, there has been no formal accusation of Sandusky having physically abused either of the two reported victims.
Sandusky’s bail is currently set at $200,000.
Sandusky’s brother, Matt Sandusky reportedly stated of his brother that”he deserves the maximum of whatever sentence the judge will give him.”
The first victim reportedly declined Sandusky’s request that she send him nude photographs, at which point Sandusky asked the minor to erase all of the text messages sent by him and requested that they talk in person, according to NBC News.
Pennsylvania State Police report that Sandusky was dating the mother of the alleged first child victim. The sexually explicit messages sent by Sandusky were showed to the victim’s father, who then reported Sandusky to the police.
“No we don’t need to talk and we aren’t going to,” responded the victim, according to court documents.
“You did what you did and I’m not going to give you a chance to try to justify it. You literally tried to guilt me into doing it and you even told me specifically what I ‘needed’ to do. You know who does that? Rapists and abusers…I don’t know how many times I need to tell you no and to stop before you get it.”
Sandusky allegedly propositioned the second reported victim, a 16-year-old girl, for oral sex.
Sandusky’s father, Jerry, was convicted of 45 sexual abuse counts and is currently serving a prison sentence of up to 60 years.
