Jeffrey S. Sandusky, the adopted 41-year-old son of former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, was arrested Monday and charged with sex crimes involving two girls.

The younger Sandusky was charged by Pennsylvania State Police and arraigned by a district judge in Bellefonte, Pa., on 14 counts. Police have accused him of soliciting nude photos from a then-16-year-old girl last year and seeking oral sex in 2013 from her then 15-year-old sister.

Jeffrey Sandusky was charged with solicitation of statutory sexual assault, solicitation of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, six counts of unlawful contact with a minor and two counts each of solicitation to photograph or depict sexual acts, sexual abuse of children and corruption of minors.

He was jailed on $200,000 bail.

According to the arrest affidavit on Nov. 21, the alleged victims’ father turned over text messages from the younger Sandusky in which he made the request for nude photographs. The affidavit said Sandusky told the alleged victim in texts that it’s not weird because he “studied medicine” and instructed her “to not show these texts to anyone.”

Jeffrey Sandusky accompanied his mother, Dottie, to many of the court proceedings involving Jerry Sandusky, who was sentenced to 30-to-60 years in prison for sexually assaulting 45 minors — with accusations stemming as far back as the 1970s.
