Jerry Sandusky Arrested: Former Penn State Coach Released On $250,000 Bail

Jerry Sandusky was arrested on Wednesday on two more counts of child sexual abuse and the court set a 250,000 bail. It seems like Sandusky has posted that bail and will be released.

On Thursday morning, ESPN's Ashoka Moore reported that Sandusky has posted bail, according to court documents. He posted that bail using $200,000 in real estate holdings and a check for $50,000. Sandusky will now leave jail for his home and will wear an electronic monitoring device to ensure that he doesn't go places he isn't supposed to go.

It is important to note that Sandusky will still be forced to wear an ankle monitor and won't be allowed to enter the Penn State campus.

One of those places he isn't supposed to go is the campus of Penn State University, which he is no longer allowed to visit. Incredibly, Sandusky was arrested while wearing PSU attire. Prosecutors had asked the judge to set Sandusky's bail at $1 million, but that request was denied.
