Original - 1:48 P.M.: Jerry Sandusky, the embattled former defensive coordinator for Penn State, was taken out of his home in handcuffs today by the Centre County District Attorney’s office, according to a tweet from NBC News.
Sandusky, who 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, was released on $100,000 unsecured bail in November. It was later reported that the judge who freed Sandusky on unsecured bail had ties to the former Penn State coach’s Second Mile charity. The prosecution had initially asked for $500,000 secured bail for Sandusky. The 67-year-old has been charged with sexually assaulting at-least eight young boys over a 15-year period. His arrest brought to light a series failures to report his crimes at several levels within the University and among the community, and ultimately led the firing of long-time head football coach Joe Paterno.
