San Antonio Police Investigating Sandusky Sexual Abuse Allegations
SAN ANTONIO (CBS Houston) — The Penn State scandal continues to grow.
San Antonio police are investigating allegations that former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually abused a boy from The Second Mile charity he founded during team trips in 1998 and 1999.
“We are investigating the possibility that an offense may have happened in San Antonio,” San Antonio police spokesman Chris Benavides told CBS Houston.
Sandusky allegedly took the boy – known as Victim 4 in the grand jury report – to the Outback Bowl in 1998 and the Alamo Bowl in 1999. It was during these occasions that Sandusky allegedly abused the boy at the team’s hotel.
Sandusky was charged last Saturday with 40 counts of sexual abuse on eight alleged victims over a decade.
Legendary Penn State football coach Joe Paterno and school president Grahama Spanier were fired Wednesday by the university’s Board of Trustees due to the scandal.
