Jerry Sandusky Writing New Book From Jail: Report

Convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky is reportedly writing a second book from jail.

The former Penn State assistant coach's first book, "Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story," was an unfortunately titled story about his life, published in 2001.

Now, just weeks before his sentencing on 45 child sex abuse charges, Pennsylvania's WJAC-TV reports that he's working on a second one with the help of his wife Dottie.

Details on the book are unclear, but sources tell the station that Sandusky and his wife have exchanged so much paperwork through the Centre County Correctional Facility's system that Dottie has had her written correspondence privileges suspended.

Both the station and the Washington Post suggest that Sandusky may be at least compiling an account of the events leading up to his arrest. His lawyer told the Centre Daily Times that he'll likely speak at his sentencing hearing.

"He’s extremely distraught about what’s happened at Penn State," Joe Amendola told the paper. "He never, never dreamed that anything he was accused of doing would have this type of impact on Penn State, not only athletics, but the university as a whole."

Interestingly, a new copy of "Touched" goes for $400 on Amazon.com since Sandusky's child abuse case came to light.

At the same time, new allegations have surfaced from a witness interviewed by federal authorities, who claims that Sandusky and a Penn State booster sexually assaulted boys on a private plane. The shocker comes on the heels of a new federal investigation into whether Sandusky shared child pornography with others.
