New Information Surfaces in Sandusky Case

Posted on May 18, 2012 by


For the last six months, more and more information has come out about the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal.

According to a document with new details on the case filed in early March, Sandusky is said to have sexually abused boys who were between the ages of eight and seventeen, including a member of his own family. Eight of these boys were allegedly molested on Penn State’s campus.

Some of the crimes involving one of the victims happened in Florida in December 1998 and January 1999–when Penn State was playing in the Outback Bowl–and Texas in December 1999–when Penn State played in the Alamo Bowl.

However, Jerry Sandusky still denies all of the allegations.

“I suspect that Sandusky will be found guilty,” FAHS English teacher Zachary Houp said, “but he’s still innocent until proven guilty by a jury of his peers.  In any event, too much blame has been put on JoePa.”

Sandusky’s defense team is going to great lengths to prove Sandusky is not guilty. They are trying to acquire evidence of the children’s IQ, their school, and medical records.

“We are continuing with the preparation of Jerry’s defense with the goal of obtaining an acquittal on all of the charges filed against him,” Joseph Amendola, Sandusky’s attorney, said.

According to an article in the Reading Eagle, Amendola also wants school transcripts, medical records going back to birth, Facebook account details, employment-related documents, and cellphone and Twitter account records.

“It is quite disgusting,” senior Gabby Starks said. “[Sandusky] should be under very strict rules to not see anyone under the age of 21.”

Jerry Sandusky has spent the last few month’s under house arrest. His trial on 52 criminal counts is set to begin on 5 June.
