Police are aware of three men who say they were abused in the 1970s or 1980s by now ex-Penn State football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, CNN contributor Sara Ganim reports for the Harrisburg Patriot News.
The allegations are the first to involve claims of abuse by the coach before the 1990s. During Sandusky's child rape trial, his defense argued that it is rare for someone to suddenly become a pedophile in their later years.
Sandusky was convicted in June of 45 counts of child sex abuse against 10 victims. As the jury was deliberating, more accusers - including his own adopted son - were speaking publicly for the first time about alleged abuse.
