The child-molesting apple appears to fall not far from the child-molesting tree. Jeffrey Sandusky, son of former Penn State football coach and convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky, was charged with child-sex crimes in Pennsylvania Monday.

According to the New York Daily News, Jeffrey Sandusky is facing 14 counts including “six counts of communicating with a minor for sex and two counts of soliciting child porn, charging documents show.” The younger Sandusky was arraigned and is being held on $200,000 bail.


The Daily News notes that Jeffrey Sandusky was charged six years after his father was convicted of sexually abusing African-American boys over a 15-year span. The older Sandusky, 73, was found guilty and sentenced to 60 years in a “supermax” prison.
