December 7: Sandusky is Arrested
Sandusky is arrested and charged with abusing two more boys. The new cases mean that the former coach faces 52 charges in the abuse of more than 10 boys. Like the other alleged victims, the young men say they first met Sandusky through his charity.
The arrest came a week after a Civil Lawsuit was filed against Sandusky on November 30. There, Penn State and the Second Mile claim Sandusky assaulted the plaintiff more than 100 times when he was between 10 and 14 years old. The plaintiff here is not among the eight alleged victims of the grand jury's report.
Additionally, on November 21, Penn State announced they'd hired former FBI director Louis Freeh to investigate the alleged abuse allegations.
