Jerry Sandusky’s Home Targeted by Vandals

Vandals have reportedly attacked the home of Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant coach facing multiple abuse charges and a possible 460 years in jail in the recently uncovered PSU sex-abuse scandal, according to NBC Philadelphia.

The main glass window of Sandusky’s State College, Pa., home, which sits next to an elementary school and playground, had been smashed in and covered with a sheet, according to the report.

A separate report, citing a neighbor, indicated that vandals threw two cinder bricks through Sandusky’s window.

Local authorities say they don’t know who committed the vandalism and would not comment on whether anyone was in the Sandusky house during the 10:21 p.m. cinder-block throwing Thursday.

Meanwhile at PSU, some students are trying to shift the focus away from Sandusky, the administrators and head football coach Joe Paterno, and focus on the victims.

According to local news station WPXI, two Penn State students have organized a vigil in response to the child sex abuse scandal that’s taken down long time coach Joe Paterno and incited riots in the process.

The vigil organizers say the real focus should be on the children who police say were brutalized by Sandusky.

“We care. We know what’s important in this matter and it’s the individuals who’ve been victimized. They’re the ones who need our support,” one PSU student, Kyle Harris, told WPXI.

Jerry Sandusky is free on $100,000 unsecured bail. He faces 21 felony counts for allegedly abusing eight male minors over a period of 15 years. He is due in court Dec. 7.
