The newest person to come forward with claims of abuse at the hands of Jerry Sandusky is a family member, according to a shocking new report.
The Patriot-News, which has been on the forefront of coverage of the allegations, reported on Wednesday that Sandusky's attorney, Joe Amendola, informed the paper that one of the new accusers is a Sandusky relative.
The newspaper is currently withholding the child's relation to Sandusky.
The report comes a day after news that two new accusers had come forward to the authorities to report Sandusky's abuse went public. The new accusers are the first to report new abuse to authorities after the charges against the former Penn State defensive coordinator went public on Nov. 6.
The allegations have been made within the last 60 days and the investigations into the claims are ongoing by the Children and Youth Services in Pennsylvania, according to the paper.
Sandusky was charged with 40 counts of child abuse on Nov. 6 in what is considered to be one of the worst scandals involving college athletics of all time. The Grand Jury report alleged that Sandusky used his influence as a popular Penn State assistant coach and as the founder of the Second Mile charity to prey on young children.
Among the charges, Sandusky is alleged to have showered with young boys in 1998; performed oral sex on a young boy in 2000; and to have anally raped a 10 year-old boy in 2002. He was caught in the act in both 2000 and 2002, but never faced charges for the crimes until now.
Sandusky retired in 1999 from the school, but still used the campus as a place to work out, attend football games, and molest young boys, according to the allegations. The lack of action by the Penn State administration to prevent Sandusky from committing crimes has led to perjury charges against two senior administrators, athletic director Tim Curley and senior vice president Gary Schultz.
Additionally the school's president, Graham Spanier, and long-time football coach, Joe Paterno, were removed of their duties.
Sandusky is currently free on unsecured bail while he awaits his trial, but some, including CBS Sports' Gregg Doyel, have already called for Pennsylvania to revoke his bail.
