A ninth person has come forward saying he was sexually abused by Jerry Sandusky, and Sandusky’s preliminary hearing, originally scheduled for Wednesday, has been pushed back to an unknown date, officials said.
A man, who would be the ninth person labeled one of Sandusky's "victims," came forward after hearing media reports of others being sexually abused by Sandusky, according to Lt. David Young of the Montoursville State Police station.
The police station took a statement from the man and forwarded it to State Police at Rockview.
Sandusky has also been barred from spending one-on-one time with his grandchildren under a temporary order approved in Centre County Court by Judge Thomas Kistler.
The Patriot-News in Harrisburg was the first to break the information regarding the person coming forward, and said the man is in his 20s and met Sandusky through The Second Mile — the non-profit organization where Sandusky met the rest of the boys he sexually abused, according to the grand jury presentment.
In addition, an official from the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte said the preliminary hearing was pushed back for scheduling reasons.
No one involved in the Sandusky case — including former Athletic Director Tim Curley and retired Vice President for Business and Finance Gary Schultz — will appear in court Wednesday.
The official said a date has not yet been set for when the hearing will take place.
Sandusky, 67, of State College, is set to attend his preliminary hearing on 40 counts on seven different charges including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a person less than 16 years of age, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault, corruption of minors and endangering the welfare of a child.
His hearing is still set to be under Magisterial District Judge Leslie Dutchcot.
Sandusky was released Saturday on $100,000 unsecured bail. Sandusky’s attorney Joseph Amendola was not able to reached for comment by press time Tuesday regarding additional reasons why the date may have been pushed back.
