Accused Penn State child molester Jerry Sandusky has been hit with a new complaint, this one filed by his daughter-in-law, who claims he abused one of his grandchildren.
The complaint was filed with Centre County’s Children and Youth Services by the wife of one of his adopted sons, Sandusky’s lawyer told ABC News.
The lawyer, Joe Amendola, said the allegation cites the abuse of one grandchild.
“The allegations are ridiculous and unfounded. Jerry has absolutely denied any inappropriate contact with his grandkids,” Amendola told ABC News.
The lawyer said, “It’s important to keep in mind these allegations were made after the attorney general filed charges against Jerry even though the alleged incident[s] took place before the AG’s charges were filed.”
Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach, has been charged with molesting eight boys over a 15-year period. Sandusky, 67, has admitted showering with boys but has denied any sexual activity with them.
Sandusky and his wife adopted five boys and the person who filed the complaint has not been publicly identified.
One of Sandusky’s adopted sons, Matt Sandusky, still supports his father despite the allegations and even brought his children to visit Sandusky after his Nov. 5 arrest.
But the mother of Matt Sandusky’s kids immediately went to court to obtain an order preventing Sandusky from being alone with her children. By court order, Sandusky is now not allowed unsupervised contact or overnight visits with his grandchildren.
