Former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, arrested Wednesday on charges that he sexually abused two more boys, posted $250,000 bail today with the help of his wife Dorothy, who wrote a $50,000 certified check.
Mr. Sandusky, 67, was arraigned Wednesday on 12 additional charges of sexually abusing children who participated in a youth program he founded. After his arraignment, he was remanded to the Centre County Correctional Facility.
Court records show bail was posted this morning. Mrs. Sandusky provided a certified check and Mr. Sandusky posted a realty bond backed by his house, at 130 Grandview Road in State College, for the remaining bail.
Mr. Sandusky left jail in a gray sedan. He got out of the car at his home a short time later, ignoring reporters' questions as he rushed inside.
Mr. Sandusky was previously charged with sexually abusing eight boys over a 15-year span, with several of the alleged assaults occurring on Penn State property.
