The Adopted Son Of Jerry Sandusky Has Been Arrested For - Yup, You Guessed It - Sexual Assault Of A Minor
LBS- According to WKBN, the younger Sandusky has been charged with statutory sexual assault; involuntary deviate sexual intercourse; photographing, video graphing, depicting on computer or filming sexual acts; and unlawful contact with a minor after he allegedly sent inappropriate text messages to a minor that included asking the victim for nude photos. Pennsylvania State Police say Jeff Sandusky has been accused of sexually abusing multiple children, one of whom he watched through a bathroom door while the victim was showering.
Sandusky was arraigned on Monday and held on $200,000 bail. He has been prohibited from having any form of contact with minors.
Jeff Sandusky was one of the people who defended his father Jerry, claiming the 73-year-old never sexually abused young boys...
The intent of what I am about to say is not to downplay the severity of an egregious crime committed by someone who - regardless of his upbringing - knew full well that what he was doing was illegal and disgusting; The intent is state a fact. Jerry Sandusky should have another - although meaningless, given his life sentence - charge levied toward him for the actions of his fully grown, adopted son.
I'm no kiddie touching expert, but I know that this is one of the ways in which the long term effects of a despicable act towards a child manifests it's itself in that child's future. Those that grow up watching their father beat their mother are more at risk to repeat that behavior, and those who have their innocence stolen by the perverted tendencies of an authority figure are more likely to trick themselves into enabling and excusing that type of assault. I don't have the numbers in front of me to back up how often childhood molestation has a residual affect on it's victim, and - to be quite honest - I'd rather remain blissfully ignorant considering the laundry list of people put at odds by Jerry Sandusky.
That said, his son was either coincidentally brought into the Sandusky house (without blood relation) as an inherently, morally reprehensible dickhead, or being raised - and more than likely diddled - by the standard by which all morally reprehensible dickheads are measured had a hand in turning him into one. Regardless of which is true, both of them should rot in a cell for all of eternity after following through on their looks by becoming rapey sons of bitches. However, one of those cases is exponentially more likely than the other, and it makes the smallest, most understanding part of my heart weep for a guy whose non-biological father's obsessive delinquency will continue to have ramifications well after he took his last breath as a free man.
