Jerry Sandusky's Son Pleads Guilty to Child Sex Abuse Charges

Jerry Sandusky's Son Pleads Guilty to Child Sex Abuse Charges

His trial had been scheduled for September 22.

Jeffrey Sandusky's plea deal comes a week before his trial was slated to begin on the charges, and almost 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.

The plea deal also requires him to serve at least three to six years in state prison, according to Philly.com.

Jeffrey Sandusky was charged with sexually abusing two minors and was arrested in February after an investigation that began in November 2016.

Jeff Sandusky is one of the notorious former Penn State football assistant's adopted children.

As a result of the plea, which was entered a week before Sandusky's trial was scheduled to start, he will be registered as a Tier III sex offender, the highest level for such an offender in Pennsylvania.

That girl told investigators that Mr. Sandusky later told her, "I can't even say anything except I'm sorry". Sandusky sought pictures of her "pissing", dressing, naked body parts and nudes. She told police she believed Sandusky also had tried to watch her while she was in the shower. The second incident occurred in 2013, according to a criminal complaint. Sandusky reportedly first told her he didn't remember what he had said, but later said he knew it was wrong.

Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller said the plea deal ensures the victims don't suffer additional trauma by testifying at the trial.

Jeffrey's dad, Jerry, is still in prison doing a 30-to-60-year stretch after being convicted of 45 counts of child sex abuse back in 2012. "We are happy that these girls can move forward and experience a life with adults that deserve their trust".
