Son of Disgraced Penn State Coach Jerry Sandusky Accused of Soliciting Children for Sex

Jeffrey Sandusky, the 41-year-old son of convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky, was arrested Monday for multiple sex crimes involving minors

Jeffrey Sandusky, the 41-year-old son of convicted child molester and retired football coach Jerry Sandusky, was arrested Monday for alleged multiple sex crimes involving two teenage girls, PEOPLE confirms.

Sandusky is charged with solicitation of statutory sexual assault, solicitation of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, solicitation of child sexual abuse and unlawful contact with a minor, among 14 total charges, according to Pennsylvania state police.

The alleged victims were 15 and 16 years old at the time of the alleged incidents, which were several years apart, police say.

He was arrested at his mother’s home in State College, Pennsylvania, according to authorities. Police began investigating in November.

The investigation stems from two teenagers who told police they were allegedly “solicited by Jeffrey Sandusky for oral sex and for nude pictures to be sent to his cell phone,” according to a statement obtained by PEOPLE from state police.

It was not immediately clear if Sandusky has entered a plea or retained an attorney. He was arraigned Monday afternoon and bail was set at $200,000. He is next scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 22.

Alleged Request for Lewd Photos

Sandusky was arrested after the father of a 16-year-old girl told police last November that his daughter had received text messages from Sandusky on March 1 and 2, 2016, “asking her to take naked pictures of herself and send them to him,” according to the criminal complaint, which was obtained by PEOPLE.

Sandusky allegedly asked the teen on March 1 to send him photos of her chest. The reports states he told the teen “that it’s not weird because he studied medicine.”

The next day, Sandusky allegedly asked the teen to send him a picture of herself dressing for school or urinating. He then allegedly asked her to take a photo of herself in her underwear and then a topless photo, according to the complaint.

When she resisted, Sandusky allegedly told her they needed “to talk to get things straightened out,” the complaint states.

The teen refused.

She allegedly texted Sandusky, “You did what you did and I’m not going to give you a chance to try and justify it.”

She added, “You literally tried to guilt me into doing it and you even told me specifically what I ‘needed’ to do. You know who does that? Rapists and Abusers.”

According to the complaint, Sandusky also sent inappropriate texts to another teen in 2013 when she was 15-years-old. The teen told police she received a text message from Sandusky propositioning her for a sex act.

Sandusky’s father, Jerry, is serving a prison sentence of at least 30 years for the sexual abuse of 10 boys over a 15-year period.

The revelation of those crimes rocked the Pennsylvania State University football program, where Jerry worked for years as an assistant football coach before retiring.

Jerry has six adopted children with his wife, Dottie.

In interview with PEOPLE, Matt Sandusky — Jerry Sandusky’s son and Jeffrey Sandusky’s brother, says — “The book should be thrown at him. He should go to prison for the maximum amount of time he that could possibly go to prison for.”

He adds, “Anybody who does these types of perpetration against children deserves to be in prison forever. There can be no greater crime than sexual victimization to a child.”
