PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) — Following his arrest on Wednesday afternoon, former Penn State Nittany Lions defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky has posted bail.
Sandusky was taken in handcuffs from his home in State College Wednesday by state police and agents from the Attorney General’s Office.
The former Penn State coach is now facing additional charges based on the testimony of two new accusers as part of the ongoing grand jury investigation in the alleged sexual abuse of children.
He had already been indicted on 40 counts of molesting eight boys over 15 years; however, he has denied the charges.
On Thursday, Sandusky posted $250,000 bail after spending a night in jail. He was being held in the Centre County Correctional Facility.
According to a report from the Associated Press, Sandusky is now out of jail.
Court records Thursday morning show Sandusky posted bail using $200,000 in real estate holdings and a $50,000 certified check provided by wife Dorothy.
Under the terms of his release, the former coach will be under house arrest and subject to electronic monitoring.
Sandusky is also forbidden from having any contact with any witnesses or victims in the attorney general investigation.
