Sandusky’s son pleads guilty to child sex abuse allegations
BELLEFONTE, Pa. — A son of former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky pleaded guilty Friday to charges he pressured a teenage girl to send him naked photos and asked her teen sister to give him oral sex.
Jeffrey Sandusky’s plea deal comes a week before his trial was slated to begin on the charges, and nearly six years after his father was arrested in a child molestation case that shook Penn State and is still working its way through criminal and civil courts.
Jeffrey Sandusky pleaded guilty to all 14 counts, including solicitation of statutory sexual assault and solicitation of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse.
A call seeking comment from his lawyer wasn’t immediately returned Friday.
As part of the deal, 41-year-old Sandusky will spend up to six years in state prison, but the judge could impose as much as eight years.
Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller said the plea deal ensures the victims don’t suffer additional trauma by testifying at the trial.
