Jeffrey Sandusky, the son of convicted sex abuser and former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, has pleaded to 14 counts of child-sex abuse charges.
The 41-year-old Sandusky entered his pleas on Friday. The charges include “soliciting sex from a child younger than 16 and soliciting child pornography,” according to CNN. Two separate incidents — one in 2013 and one in 2016 — invoked the charges, which involved two different girls.
As a result of the plea, which was entered a week before Sandusky’s trial was scheduled to start, he will be registered as a Tier III sex offender, the highest level for such an offender in Pennsylvania. The terms of the plea mandate that Sandusky serve 3-6 years in prison, but he could be jailed for up to eight years.
Sandusky will be sentenced on Dec. 18.
Jeffrey’s father, Jerry Sandusky, is serving a sentence of at least 30 years for sexually abusing 10 young boys while he was an assistant at Penn State.
