Penn State Scandal: Jerry Sandusky May Also Face Charges in San Antonio

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterNovember 10, 2011

The alleged villainy of Jerry Sandusky was stashed away for far too long. Now that it has seen the light, every last person in power is keyed into the nuances. That may lead to Sandusky getting charged for sexual assault in San Antonio. 

There was something that struck a chord with police officials in San Antonio when news broke that Jerry Sandusky had allegedly sexually abused close to 20 minor boys. 

WOAI Local News in San Antonio reports Police Sgt. Chris Benaviedes and District Attorney Susan Reed feel compelled to look into a very specific part of the Grand Jury report released alleging Sandusky's crimes. 

One of the allegations poses that Sandusky took "Victim 4" to the 1999 Alamo Bowl. If the allegations are true, criminal charges could be brought against Sandusky in another state for sexually assaulting a minor. 

The former Penn State defensive coordinator is currently being charged in Pennsylvania with 40 counts of sexual abuse. There are no charges yet filed in San Antonio, as Bexar County First Assistant District Attorney Cliff Herberg tells reporters that this is just a "preliminary inquiry."

He went onto say, "Obviously, in something like this, when (District Attorney Susan) Reed heard about it, she and the police chief were very concerned about it. We are going to taking what action we can to see if a case can be built."

Now the attorney's office is tasked with finding any evidence to support such charges being raised. At the moment they have no complaint from any victim and nothing that would warrant legal action other than Grand Jury testimony. 

What the officials in Bexar County don't want is to sit back idly when they know full well that deplorable actions could have taken place in their jurisdiction.
