STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Ex-Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky has been arrested on new sex abuse charges brought by two new accusers.

Authorities say Sandusky was arrested and arraigned today.

The charges were brought after the new accusers were questioned by a grand jury. Both alleged victims were part of Sandusky’s Second Mile charity. One claims he was assaulted in 1997 and the other in 2004.

A call seeking comment from Sandusky’s lawyer, Joseph Amendola, was not immediately returned.

He should NEVER take a step or breathe air while free again. He is deserving of a fair trial but NO BAIL. The allegations are so sickening they DEMAND immediate INCARCERATION.

I agree with BraveDave. I also think that the witness, of these crimes, that did nothing to help these innocent children should burn with him!

Ditto. I can't fathom what kind of "human being" could witness that taking place in a gym shower and just walk away! He should have had his skull fractured with a metal chair.
