Vandals may have smashed a window at Jerry Sandusky's home Thursday night, local police have told the media. It is unclear whether anyone was home at the time.

The broken ground-floor window in the front of Sandusky's house in State College, Pa., covered with something that looks like a white tarp on Friday.

Sandusky, a former Pennsylvania State Univeristy assistant football coach, has been charged with 40 counts of child sex abuse and is currently free on $100,000 bail. He also faces 21 felony counts on suspicion of abusing eight male minors over a period of nearly 15 years.

Several media outlets have reported that Sandusky's home is near an elementary school and a playground.

Sandusky will return to court on Dec. 7. He is reportedly facing 460 years in prison if convicted on all counts.

The Penn State scandal has caused its head football coach, Joe Paterno, and its president, Graham Spanier, one of the longest-serving college presidents in the United States, to lose those positions. The school's board of trustees fired Paterno, 84, on Wednesday, effective immediately.

A grand-jury report has alleged that Paterno and other Penn State officials were made aware of an incident when a young boy was sexually abused in a bathroom shower on the university's campus, but failed to report the incident to the police.
