Jerry Sandusky Investigation: New Victim Reportedly Comes Forward

A man alleging former Penn State Nittany Lions assistant coach Jerry Sandusky sexually abused him over a decade came forward Sunday after seeing news reports about other allegations against Sandusky, according to the Associated Press. The man, whose name and other identifying details the police have declined to release, "is in his 20s, knew Sandusky from The Second Mile charity and had never told his parents or authorities about the alleged encounters from about a decade ago," the new report says. Officers in Rockview are investigating this man's claims against Sandusky.

Sandusky founded The Second Mile, in 1977. According to its Web site, the Second Mile "is a statewide, nonprofit organization for children who need additional support and who would benefit from positive human contact."

Following a two-year investigation, a grand jury indicted Sandusky, who served Joe Paterno as an assistant coach from 1969 to his retirement in 1999, on 40 charges of sexual abuse against minors. The indictment lists the offenses as occurring in 1996, 1998, 2000, 2002, and 2005.
