Jerry Sandusky Now Subject Of Federal Investigation, According To Report

Former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky has been the subject of a months-long investigation into numerous claims that he sexually abused children. Now, according to Sara Ganim of The Patriot-News, Sandusky is also the subject of a federal investigation that involves both Penn State and The Second Mile, the children's charity Sandusky allegedly used to meet more than 10 of the children he's charged with abusing.

Ganim writes that the federal investigation is separate from and "parallel to" the state investigation into Sandusky, and that Penn State confirmed to her that it received a subpoena from federal authorities for information related to the university, former Penn State president Graham Spanier, and Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, who face perjury charges for their roles in the Sandusky investigation.

Sandusky's state trial date has been set for May 14 in a Pennsylvania court.
