Jeffrey Sandusky, an adopted son of convicted child abuser Jerry Sandusky, has been arrested on several child abuse charges. Jerry Sandusky, a former coach for Penn State’s famed Division 1 football program, is currently serving out a 60-year prison sentence after he was found guilty of a myriad of child abuse, assault and neglect charges–45 of them in total–in the summer of 2012.
Jeffrey, 41, is facing charges of criminal solicitation-statutory sexual assault, criminal solicitation, criminal contact with a minor-sexual abuse, and other charges, according to ABC 6 Philadelphia.
