Jerry Sandusky was handcuffed and removed from his Pennsylvania home earlier today ... after he was hit with 9 NEW sex abuse charges from 2 new accusers.

According to Attorney General of Pennsylvania, the 2 new accusers each say they met Sandusky through the The Second Mile -- an organization for at-risk youth that Sandusky founded.

Officials say, "As in many of the other cases identified to date, the contact with Sandusky allegedly fit a pattern of ‘grooming’ victims ... Beginning with outings to football games and gifts; they later included physical contact that escalated to sexual assaults.”

One of the new accusers, who is now identified as Victim 9, claims he met Sandusky in 2004 ...  and alleges that bizarre behavior such as hugging, rubbing, cuddling and tickling escalated to sexual assaults ... some of which were performed in the swimming pool and Jacuzzi of a hotel near Penn State.

The other new accuser, identified as Victim 10, claims he was 10-years-old when Sandusky would have “wrestling” sessions in the basement of the coach's home -- which escalated to oral sex.

The Attorney General announced that Sandusky was charged with 4 new counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and 2 counts of unlawful contact with a minor, all felonies which are each punishable by up to 20 years in prison and $25,000 fines.

Sandusky was also charged with 1 count of indecent assault and 2 counts of endangering the welfare of children, all third-degree felonies which are each punishable by up to seven years in prison and $15,000 fines.

Here they all come out of the woodwork now. Where were they back then?? Still wrong if the allegations are concrete but still. If I were molested I would not wait years after-the-fact to make it public.....unless there is some monetary gain like these folks are trying to cash in on I suppose.

How can someone be arrested on an accusation without substantiating evidence? There has to be more to the story than what we are privy to. If he was arrested on accusation alone, we live in a barbaric society...And no, I do not support harming children but I also do not support convicting someone WITHOUT PROOF or BEFORE they have had their day in court. Wake up People.

I can only hope that the more of his victims that come forward it encourages more and more of them until they ALL come forward. He wanted "screwed" by kids and it looks like the kids are going to make he's screwed for life. Congratulations you brave, brave "kids" for standing up to this monster and giving him his due.
