Sandusky faces new charges in connection with "Victim 9" and "Victim 10"

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Jerry Sandusky is being charged with additional counts of sexual abuse of children as a result of grand jury testimony from two additional young men, identified as Victims 9 and 10, according to the state Attorney General's office.

Today's criminal charges were recommended by a statewide investigating grand jury, based on evidence and testimony that was received following the initial arrest of Sandusky on November 5, said Attorney General Linda Kelly.

At that time, Sandusky was charged with sexually assaulting eight victims, all of whom first encountered Sandusky as children through The Second Mile, a organization that he founded to operate programs for disadvantaged young people.

Sandusky was taken from his home in handcuffs, according to reports.
