Jerry Sandusky, former Penn State defensive coordinator who has been charged with 40 counts of sexual abuse, now faces two new abuse allegations, but his lawyer said they are ridiculous and unfounded.
The allegations are ridiculous and unfounded. Jerry has absolutely denied any inappropriate contact with his grandkids, Amendola told ABC News.
Amendola said one of them is from Sandusky's family member. The other claim against Sandusky was a mimic of other allegations.
Amendola revealed Sandusky’s daughter-in-law filed a complaint that Sandusky sexually abused one of his grandchildren.
The two allegations were reported less than two months ago before Sandusky’s arrest and are currently being investigated by Children and Youth Services.
Earlier this month Sandusky has been charged with molesting eight boys over 15 years. He has stated that he is innocent but admitted showering with boys.
According to a grand jury’s investigation that took three years, Sandusky assaulted young men who are over 18 now when they were much younger.
If the two new allegations are reliable and true, they will be the first involving a person who is still under the age of 18, The Patriot-News reported.
