Prosecutors: Sandusky molested 8 boys on Penn State campus

Prosecutors claim that eight of the 10 boys former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is accused of molesting were sexually assaulted on campus.

In a bill of particulars dated Feb. 21 but posted Thursday in the Centre County Court of Common Pleas, the Pennsylvania attorney general claims five boys were molested in the Lasch Football Building. Abuse also occurred in the East Area Locker Room, Holuba Hall, the university pool and in the dormitories, according to the filing.

The ages of the 10 boys ranged from 8 to 17, according to the paperwork. In some cases, however, Senior Deputy Attorney General Jonelle Eshbach wrote that the exact ages of the children at the time of the alleged conduct were unknown.

In addition, in those cases, she wrote that the exact dates and locations of the assaults were unknown, "because there were numerous offenses over the course of several years. "The victim, a child at the time of the offenses, is unable to provide exact times and dates."

The filing also alleges that six boys were molested at Mr. Sandusky's State College home.

Mr. Sandusky is accused of molesting one boy, identified as Victim No. 4 in the grand jury presentment, between 1996 and 2000 at a number of venues, including the former coach's home, on campus, at Toftrees Golf Resort, as well as on trips to Florida and Texas in late 1998 and early 1999.

Mr. Sandusky's defense attorney, Joseph Amendola, had requested the prosecution file a bill of particulars to provide his with more detailed description of the charges.
