CBS Report: Federal Probe Into Possible Jerry Sandusky Child Porn Ring

A federal probe led by U.S. Postal Inspectors is trying to determine whether former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky shared child pornography with others across state lines, CBS News reported Friday. 

Sandusky's attorney, Joseph Amendola, told the Citizens Voice in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., he was unaware of the federal probe.

"Jerry continues to maintain his innocence. We believe this allegation is totally unfounded and absurd."

From CBS' report:

"Analyzing a computer seized from Sandusky, investigators are also looking into whether he sent "seductive letters" across state lines for sexual purposes. Some of these letters were said to be sent to some of his sexual abuse victims.

"The investigation, which was launched at the beginning of the year, is being carried out of the U.S. Postal Inspectors office in Harrisburg, Pa., and the U.S. Attorney Office of the Middle District of Pennsylvania."

Sandusky, 68, was convicted on June 22 on 45 of 48 counts of child sexual abuse. He awaits sentencing pending fulfillment of all necessary psychological evaluations.
