Jerry Sandusky was convicted almost a month ago, but that hasn’t stopped the scandal from continuing on. To the releasing of the Freeh Report and the Paterno family continuing to fight for Joe Paterno’s legacy, there seems to be no end in sight for all of this. And the fact that three more men have come forward claiming that they were abused by Sandusky absolutely drives that point home.
According to Sarah Ganim of the Patriot News, the two men allege that Sandusky abused them in the 1960s or 1970s and are the “first to allege abuse before the 1990s”.
Sources close to the Jerry Sandusky case say that three men have come forward and told police that they were abused in the 1970s or 1980s by the convicted pedophile.
They are the first men to allege abuse before the 1990s, and if found to be credible, would directly attack the 68-year-old’s defense argument that a person doesn’t become pedophile in his or her 50s.
In the early 1970s, when one of the men says he was abused, Jerry Sandusky would have been in his late 20s.
Two sources with knowledge of the investigation say police are aware these men have come forward.
It is not known, however, if these men were contacted or interviewed by Louis Freeh’s team, which was hired by Penn State to do an internal review of the scandal and the university’s response.
We all want this whole ordeal to be over, but it just doesn’t seem likely any time soon. Unfortunately as investigators continue to peel the current back on Jerry Sandusky’s life at Penn State, this scandal could grow bigger and bigger.
