Jerry Sandusky’s Alleged Victims as Young as 8
A court filing Thursday by prosecutors in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case said that the alleged victims ranged in age from 8 to 17 and that crimes involving eight of the boys occurred on the Penn State University campus.
The attorney general’s office issued a “bill of particulars” that said crimes involving one boy took place in Florida and Texas, while another boy was abused at his own school.
Two of the boys, identified in a grand jury report as Victim 2 and Victim 8, remain unidentified to authorities, according to the court filing.
In most cases, prosecutors said they could not provide specific dates, noting some crimes occurred over many years, and the alleged victims were children at the time.
The document, produced at the request of Sandusky’s lawyer, discloses details of the allegations that might help them prepare a defense. Prosecutors said assaults happened from 1996 to 2009 and occurred at Sandusky’s home, in State College hotels, at Penn State athletic facilities and inside a car.
For Victim 4, the attorney general’s office said offenses took place in Florida in December 1998 and January 1999, when Penn State was playing in the Outback Bowl; and in Texas in December 1999, when Sandusky’s final game occurred in the Alamo Bowl.
