The adopted son of convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky has been arrested on similar charges.
Jeffrey Sandusky, 41, was arrested Monday afternoon and charged with statutory sexual assault, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, corruption of minors and photographing, videotaping, depicting on computer or filming sexual acts.
State police began investigating in November when they were contacted by the father of a teenage girl who said his daughter had received inappropriate text messages from Sandusky. The girl sent screen shots of the text messages to her father, who shared them with investigators, police paperwork said.
The contact between Sandusky and the girl was reported in March. Police said Sandusky told the girl to erase the messages and not to show them to anyone. He also asked to talk to her to “get things straightened out.”
According to police paperwork, the girl replied, “No, we don’t need to talk and we aren’t going to. You did what you did and I’m not going to give you a chance to try and justify it. You literally tried to guilt me into doing it and you even told me specifically what I ‘needed’ to do.’ You know who does that? Rapists and abusers, not (redacted) who care about their (redacted). I don’t know how many times I need to tell you no and to stop before you get it.”
When investigators spoke to the alleged victim’s mother, she became emotional as officers read through the text messages. Police paperwork says she told officers that Sandusky told her he was sorry and didn’t remember what he said, and then told her that he knows it was wrong and inappropriate.
The victim told investigators that Sandusky also “looked at her inappropriately and stared at her.”
A second victim told police that Sandusky sent texts in 2013 that were upsetting.
