Jeffrey Sandusky, Penn State Coach's Son, Pleads Guilty To Child Sexual Abuse

The son of Jerry Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant coach convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys, has pleaded guilty to soliciting oral sex and nude photos from teenage girls, according to the Associated Press.

He regularly attended his father's court proceedings alongside his mother, Dottie Sandusky, who also has consistently supported her husband and fought to clear his name.

Centre County District Attorney Stacey Parks Miller said the plea spares the victims the trauma of testifying.

Sandusky's pleas guarantee that he will serve 3 to 6 years in state incarceration, but it allows the judge in the case to impose as much as 4 to 8 years at her discretion, according to the district attorney's office.

In the criminal complaint, police said the girl's mother became emotional when she learned of the texts and told Sandusky to leave.

The girl told police the texts made her uncomfortable and that "he kept pressuring me and asked me multiple times not to show the texts to anyone", police said.

Former Penn State Vice President Gary Schultz is out of prison, after serving two months for his role in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

"We are happy that these girls can move forward and experience a life with adults that deserve their trust", she said.

In February, Sandusky was charged with 14 counts of child sex abuse, including soliciting sex from a child younger than 16 and soliciting child pornography.

Sandusky demanded the 16-year-old send him nude photos via text message in 2016 and later instructed her to delete the text exchange and not tell anyone.

Prosecutors allege Jeffrey Sandusky sought oral sex from the other girl in 2013.

Sandusky's requests were rebuffed by both underage girls, who instead reported the alleged conduct to their parents, state police at Rockview said.
