Jerry Sandusky Arrested On Additional Sexual Assault Charges From New Victims

Embattled former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was arrested Wednesday on several additional sexual assault charges resulting from two new accusers. 

According to grand jury testimony, both of the new victims were children who participated in Sandusky's charity, The Second Mile. One of the new victims stated that Sandusky began expressing interest in what he deemed "an affectionate" manner. The victim originally thought Sandusky was "a nice man" and appreciated when Sandusky took him to football games or gave him gifts. But over time, the victim said, Sandusky became "touchy feely" and the affection escalated into sexual assault.

The other new victim testified that Sandusky originally invited him to a Penn State football game in the fall of 1997. The victim said Sandusky liked to wrestle with him, and on many occasions the wrestling escalated into sexual assault.
