12/7/2011 10:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Where was his wife while he had all these young boys sleeping at his house?? Didn't she question why he was sneaking down to the basement in the middle of the night? So sad that someone who had such influence over these young children used it to violate there trust and thier childhood. Lock him up!!!

My god this is just terrible. MSNBC is now reporting that this latest victim claims his cries for help went unanswered by Sandusky's wife. I'm literally in tears. How could you stand by and allow this to happen? How do you live with yourself? How many more victims are there? And what about their own children.

Wow Jerry...it must be the most massive conspiracy in American history, all those people telling similar stories, and misinterpreting your good intentions. You were just there to support and help them with your charity and look how they have repaid you, huh? Get ready to spend the rest of your days in jail, hurry up court system and put this guy away where he can't do anymore damage.

jackson said nothing was wrong with sleeping in an abused boy's home. he said he endorsed sleeping in a boy's bed, but he claimed that he only slept on the floor near a boy. he had a bad back after he had injuries, so his sleeping on the floor was either necessary or something he loved doing because he was obsessed with boys. he knew that jordan chandler's father abused his son.

after jackson rewarded the chandlers $20000000 of concert insurance money, he begged to visit a juvenile detention center to hug 2 12 year old murderers. the michael jackson fans said he was just innocent peter pan in a man's body.
of course, michael jackson fanatics act differently while watching sandusky.
