The first witness in Jerry Sandusky's trial said the former Penn State assistant football coach sexually abused him as a young teenager on campus and in hotels and later sent him "creepy love letters."
A psychologist who looked into a 1998 allegation against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky told police at the time that his behavior fit the profile of a likely pedophile, NBC News reported Saturday.
Ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested and jailed Wednesday on new child sex abuse charges brought by two new accusers, including one who claims Sandusky molested him numerous times in a basement bedroom.
Defense attorney Joseph Amendola tells the Centre Daily Times (http://bit.ly/1fKPIb6 ) that client Barry Grove's 1978 conviction was for criminal trespass, not burglary as Centre County prosecutors contend.
Amendola says no one told Grove he was breaking the law - including probation officers who saw weapons in his home over the years - until after he shot the dog last year.
