STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Jerry Sandusky has been taken to a Pennsylvania county jail after being unable to post $250,000 bail in cash.
The former Penn State assistant coach was jailed Wednesday after a brief court hearing.
Sandusky faces new charges based on the testimony of two new accusers, including one who claims Sandusky molested him numerous times in a basement bedroom at Sandusky's home. He already faced 40 counts of child sex abuse involving eight young boys over a 15-year span.
Sandusky lawyer Joseph Amendola says his client maintains his innocence.
Senior Magisterial District Judge Robert E. Scott said if Sandusky does make bail, he will be under house arrest and subject to electronic monitoring.
Prosecutors had sought $1 million in bail.
