Jerry Sandusky Indicted On Sex Crimes Against Minors Charges

Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky was indicted on multiple charges of sex crimes against minors on Friday.

Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky has been indicted on felony sex abuse charges following a lengthy grand jury investigation, according to a report on Friday. Sandusky spent 32 years at Penn State, working under the watchful eye of Joe Paterno during his tenure.

Friday's indictment involves 40 counts, with incidents stretching from the mid-90s to mid-2000s. The charges follow a two-year grand jury investigation brought about by allegations from a local teen.

The charges follow a more-than two year grand jury investigation that began when a Clinton County teen alleged inappropriate contact against the 67-year-old former coach.

During the investigation, older allegations from 1998 surfaced as well. In the older case, Penn State police investigated inappropriate touching in a shower.

The whole story and all of the allegations shine Sandusky in a different light than he was previously known. Following his coaching career, Sandusky founded The Second Mile, a charity that allows hundreds of thousands of children to attend camps each year.
