Jerry Sandusky Released After Posting $250,000 Bail

Thursday December 8th, 2011

Former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky has posted bail and will be released today after spending a night in jail, the Associated Press reports.  Sandusky was arrested and arraigned on Wednesday after 12 new sexual abuse charges were filed involving two new alleged victims.

Court records show that the accused child molester used $200,000 in real estate holdings and a $50,000 certified check to secure his release. Sandusky was also ordered to be confined to his home with an electronic monitor and to stay away from potential witnesses and alleged victims. Sandusky now faces more than 50 charges regarding 10 alleged victims over a 15-year period.  The ex football coach maintains his innocence as he awaits a preliminary hearing set for Tuesday.
