On Monday, Pennsylvania state police commissioner Frank Noonan and attorney general Linda Kelly encouraged alleged victims of former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky to come forward and assist the state's investigation. Noonan and Kelly publicized two phone numbers for the potential victims to call in order to contact investigators. One day later, it looks as if their call has been heard.

According to Fox 29 in Philadelphia, the number of alleged victims in the Sandusky case has doubled, and now approaches 20. As of Monday, Sandusky had been charged with indecent acts against eight minors.

Sources tell Fox 29 since a press conference on Monday, the number of potential victims has more than doubled in the case.

On Monday, Pennsylvania state attorney general Linda Kelly said the Sandusky case was consideried an on-going investigation and more charges could be coming. 

According to the grand jury presentment, Sandusky's alleged sexual assaults on minors stretch back to his days as a Penn State coach, and more allegedly occurred in Penn State football facilities even after Sandusky had retired.

There have been no details about the new allegations publicized as yet, and though additional charges may yet be issued, Sandusky still faces the 40 charges he was issued on Friday. Thus, at this time the official facts about the Sandusky case remain the same.

Those with information have been asked to contact investigators from the Office of Pennsylvania Attorney General at 814-863-1053 or Pennsylvania State Police at 814-470-2238.

Report: Alleged Sandusky victim number doubles

To drink to excess and then get behind the wheel is evil and if you don't get that it says a lot about what is wrong with society today.  Because one hits too close to home you excuse it.   It is evil to get behind the wheel, it shows that we only care about our own pleasures.   We want our pound of flesh regardless.  He did not sit on it, he reported it as he should have.  It is so easy to be sanctimonious after the fact.
Son, you don't know me. If you did you would know better than to suggest drunk driving 'hits too close to home', or that I excuse it. I tried to point a difference between an action with potential negative consequences and an action that in itself is negative. If you can't see the difference than it doesn't say anything about what's wrong with society or any nonsense like that; it just shows that you're not about to let a moment's thought get in the way of your prejudice.

I think some people find it easier to be sanctimonious than others, Bowie7. You might want to look at your own attitudes and comments in that regard.

Why did this take so long to find out?  Maybe that's the big question that needs to be answered, not whether or not JoePa did the right thing.  He acted on hearsay, people - not facts.  He did what he should have.  Could he have done more to follow up?  Yes.  He's being made the scapegoat.

Wow, it amazes me how many like to lump every single alum, player, student, worker, and the faculty into being at fault for any of this.   Are the alum upset , of course, but not just because Paterno was let go, the alum actually care about the victims and that this happened at their alma mater.  However, just because this happened there does not mean the other 99.9 percent of folks at Penn State are just as guilty.  PLEASE......get a grip folks.   What happened was awful.  But you are a moron if you want to go ahead and lump everyone else at Penn State in with this sorry state of affairs.   Hate to tell you but Penn State is alot more than just these few and it will always continue to be.
