The state police investigation began in November when authorities were contacted by the father of a teenage girl who said his daughter had received inappropriate text messages from Sandusky. Some of the text messages from Sandusky asked for naked photos, WJAC-TV reported.


The contact between Sandusky and the girl dates back to March 2016, WJAC-TV reported.

Sandusky was arraigned Monday afternoon. His bail was set at $200,000, WTAJ reported.

A judge prohibited him from having contact with the alleged victim or anyone under the age of 18, according to WJAC.

Sandusky’s father, Jerry Sandusky, is serving a 30- to 60-year sentence in the state prison in Greene County after the former Penn State football coach was found guilty of child sex abuse crimes.
