Jerry Sandusky Investigation Travels South To San Antonio

Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky could face additional child-abuse charges in San Antonio in addition to those he faces in Pennsylvania, according to a new report.

In a statement to 1200 WOAI, Police Sgt. Chris Benaviedes says they can’t stand silent if there are allegations of a crime.

One of Sandusky’s alleged victims reportedly came with him to San Antonio when Penn State played a bowl game there.

Jerry Sandusky is accused of taking “Victim 4” to the 1999 Alamo Bowl. That accuser, now 27, testified he was listed as a member of the Sandusky family party for the 1999 Alamo Bowl.

When the boy resisted his advances, Sandusky threatened to send him home from the Alamo Bowl, the report said.

The investigation is in its preliminary stages, and it’s unclear if anything will come of it, but it sounds like there’s a prosecutor in San Antonio who wants to pursue it. District Attorney Cliff Herberg:

“Obviously, in something like this, when (District Attorney Susan) Reed heard about it, she and the police chief were very concerned about it. We are going to taking what action we can to see if a case can be built.”

We’ll see what happens, but it sounds like it may be a while before the ball gets rolling, if it ever does.
