Sandusky Released on Bail After Sex Abuse Charges

Ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is out of jail after posting bail one day after being hit with new child sex abuse charges. Sandusky left the Centre County jail in a grey sedan after securing his release with a $50,000 certified check provided by his wife and a $200,000 bond backed by his house.

Under the terms of his release, Sandusky will be subject to electronic monitoring.

Sandusky was jailed on Wednesday on 12 new charges of child sex abuse based on grand jury testimony from two new alleged victims. In all, Sandusky faces more than 50 charges and is accused of molesting 10 different boys.

He continues to maintain his innocence.
