Additional Sex Abuse Charges

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.

I hope, although don't expect, that every single one of his victims comes forward with his story. And that the adults who were complicitous in helping Sandusky and Bernie Fine, et al, to maintain their secrets. People need to understand the magnitude of this problem to prevent it in the future. And adults who surround the perpetrator need to understand that they too may suffer legal consequences for protecting the perpetrator.

don't get me wrong - he needs to go to hell - just don't confuse a pedophile w/ being gay, most pedophiles consider themselves hetero and are married - there is no correlation between being gay and being a pedophile

I must have missed the whole part as to WHY these guys waited so long to report this? Also, what parent lets their kid spend so much time and go so many places with a guy like this??? (all you have to do is look at him and know he's a pedo!)

It's about damn time they arrested this monster! I was starting to think this evil deviant behavior was acceptable in Pennsylvania. I'm happy the victims decided to come forward and hope now they can put a end to this pedifiles reign. I hope jail is everything he ever imagined that it would be and then some. Hey JERRY I heard your CELLY likes BLUE eyes!

All the people comparing the late beloved Michael Jackson to that creep pedophile Jerry Sandusky are out of their minds. The FBI investigated Michael for 20 years and could not find one single evidence that he had molested children. Yet this guy Sandusky looks like he is going to spend the rest of his days in jail with all these victims accusing him of rape. Stop putting Michael's name in the same sentence with Sandusky's name.

I know people won't allow themselves to even think about it, but what if this guy is really innocent? What does that say about the media and people who are so easily compelled to pick up torches and pitch forks!
------------------------------------------------------------
Why didn't you ask that question when they falsely accused Michael Jackson of child molestation in 1994 and in 2003? Everybody believed Michael was guilty. The media called him a pervert. Then he went to court and the FBI found no evidence that he had molested children after investigating him for 20 years. Jerry Sandusky on the other hand the media respects him and the magazines don't put print that he is a pervert. Yet he has many victims coming after him. I guess because Sandusky is white they are going to let him have his day in court. But Michael was black so everybody assumed he was guilty.
