Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky may be looking at a maximum 460-year imprisonment if he is found guilty of the charges in the child sex abuse case brought against him.

On Saturday, Sandusky was charged on suspicion of 40 counts of child sex abuse. The former assistant coach is accused of sexually molesting eight young boys over a nearly 15-year period.

Sandusky has denied the charges brought against him.

However, a criminal complaint filed Nov. 4 by the Pennsylvania State Police and reviewed by the media, showed that most serious criminal count the first-degree felony charges of deviate sexual intercourse with a underage complainant, according to MyFoxPhilly.com.

Each count carries a maximum sentence of 40 years.

A grand jury report noted that Sandusky chose his victims from a charity he started called The Second Mile. Sandusky reportedly had access to hundreds of boys through the charity set up in 1977 to help troubled boys. It raises millions of dollars through fundraising and special events, the grand jury report stated.

The program had access to hundreds of boys, many of whom were vulnerable due to their social situations, the report noted.

Sandusky retired from The Second Mile in 2010. He was employed at Penn State for 23 years as defensive coordinator of its Division 1 collegiate football team.

The child sex abuse scandal that rocked Penn State has led to the firing of head coach Joe Paterno, 84, who was hoping to finish the season with the team before the school's board of trustee relieve him of his duties effective immediately on Wednesday, ending his 46-year career as head coach.

Two other university officials were reportedly charged with failing to report the 2002 incident.
