The cases were reported less than 60 days ago, and so they are still in the initial stages of the investigation.
If they are found to be credible, these would be the first known cases to be reported since Sandusky’s arrest that involve current children. All of the other publicly known cases of alleged victims coming forward have been adults.
In Pennsylvania, when an adult comes forward and alleges abuse — even if it happened when that person was a child — it’s solely a police matter. CYS only participates in the investigation if the victim is still under 18.
This new information could give credence to a growing debate over whether Sandusky should have been arrested more quickly.
