Report: Number Of Victims In Jerry Sandusky Sex Abuse Case 'Closer To Twenty'

As disturbing details continue to emerge about the alleged sexual abuse scandal at Penn State University, Philadelphia's Fox 29 is reporting that the number of victims of accused abuser Jerry Sandusky could be "closer to twenty".

There were eight victims named in the grand jury charges, but Fox 29 cites sources claiming that number has "more than doubled" since state officials offered call-in numbers for past victims.  State officials had specifically hoped to hear from the victim who was reportedly assaulted by Sandusky in an 2002 incident allegedly observed by a graduate assistant with the team.  There was no word if that particular victim was one of those who had come forward.

Sandusky has been charged by a state grand jury with counts of deviate sexual intercourse, corruption of minors, endangering the welfare of a child, and indecent assault.  Former Penn State athletic director Tim Curley  and senior vice president Gary Schultz both resigned on Sunday after the grand jury announced their charges and the story began to gain steam.
