Jerry Sandusky was hauled away from his home in handcuffs this afternoon after prosecutors filed amid startling new testimony has emerged from one of his latest alleged victims.
The ninth alleged victim said in sworn testimony that he suffered abuse at Sandusky’s hands for years, often in the basement of the coach’s house.
The victim said Sandusky made him perform oral sex multiple times and tried to anally rape him at least 16 times and succeeded a number of times….
The two newest accusers say they met Sandusky through his charity, the Second Mile, when they were troubled young boys.
‘As in many of the other cases identified to date, the contact with Sandusky allegedly fit a pattern of “grooming” victims,’ Attorney General Linda Kelly said in a statement.
‘Beginning with outings to football games and gifts; they later included physical contact that escalated to sexual assaults.’

One of the new alleged victims in the sexual harassment case against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky told a grand jury that Sandusky’s wife ignored his screams for help while Sandusky raped him in the basement of their home.
The young man, identified in the new complaint as Victim No. 9, who is now 18 years old, said in his testimony that Sandusky attempted to rape him at least 16 times, sometimes successfully.
“I took it at first he was just a nice guy, like he went to church every weekend, his kids come over every once in a while and stuff,” the young man testified. “And after a while, like, he got used to me and stuff and started getting further and further wanting — to touch feely.”
The presentment says the contacts eventually “escalated to sexual assaults.”
