Jerry Sandusky Abuse: Three Men Come Forward With Allegations Of Assault In 70s, 80s

Posted: Updated:

Three additional men have accused convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky of sexually abusing them during the 1970s and 80s, according to the Patriot-News.

An internal investigation, led by former FBI director Louis Freeh and released to the public Thursday, revealed top officials at Penn State had knowledge of Sandusky's reported sexual crimes on campus but failed to stop them, however, there was no substantial inquiry included in the report about Sandusky's employment at Penn State before 1994.

Sandusky was hired at the university in 1968 when he was 24-years-old. in 1977, he founded the Second Mile, an after-school program for at-risk children that he reportedly use to groom victims. In his investigation Freeh did take a look into Sandusky's employment at Penn State during the 70s and 80s, but told reporters Thursday his team found no significant evidence of criminal activity from those decades.

According to the Patriot-News, it is unknown whether Freeh's investigation knew about these men and spoke with them during the investigation.

Sandusky was found guilty of child molestation last month, and his lawyers plan to file an appeal.

Penn State is also facing civil lawsuits for their failure to protect children from being sexually assaulted and raped by Sandusky on campus.
