Jerry Sandusky Posts Bail After Latest Sexual Abuse Charges

Former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky posted bail on Thursday, one day after being arrested for the latest sexual abuse charges filed against him.

Court records show that Sandusky made bail using $200,000 in real estate holdings and a $50,000 certified check provided by his wife, Dorothy. 

Two new alleged victims surfaced recently in the investigation. Based on the new evidence surfacing, Sandusky was arrested Wednesday on 12 new sexual abuse charges, bringing the total number of charges to more than 50.

The grand jury report stated that the new alleged victims, the ninth and 10th Sandusky accusers, were both befriended by Sandusky as children during their participation with his charity, The Second Mile. Both accusers said he offered them gifts, treated them with affection and brought them to football games, but that his affection soon escalated into sexual assault.
