Jerry Sandusky Labeled 'Likely Pedophile' In 1998 By Psychologist, According To Report

While the attorney for former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky continues to work to have the charges against his client dropped, more revelations about Sandusky's past and behavior continue to emerge. The latest comes from NBC News and

More than a decade before former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky was charged with more than 50 counts of child sex abuse, a psychologist warned university police that his actions fit that of a "likely pedophile's pattern."

The finding by State College, Pa., psychologist Dr. Alycia A. Chambers, the therapist for one of Sandusky's alleged victims, was contained in the internal Penn State files of a 1998 police investigation of the former coach for showering and bear hugging her client and another young boy in the school's athletic locker room.

There are 10 alleged victims in the Sandusky case, and he is facing 52 counts of sexual abuse. It seems more apparent with each passing day the information in the 1998 police investigation could play a vital role in the trial, scheduled to begin in less than two months.
