He was also charged with two misdemeanor counts of corruption of minors.
According to WKRN, the Pennsylvania state police began an investigation in November 2016 after a child reported receiving texts from Jeffrey Sandusky, some of which asked for naked photographs.
The state police told WKRN that Jeffrey Sandusky was dating the child’s mother and had lived in the residence for about five years. The child’s father was given the explicit messages and alerted police.
The criminal complaint charged that a second child was abused dating back to 2013.
