Authorities in Pennsylvania have opened two new child abuse investigations against Jerry Sandusky, reports the Patriot-News. The difference this time? The alleged victims are still under 18, meaning the abuse would have happened relatively recently. In the other eight cases in which the former Penn State coach faces charges, the victims are all now adults.

The two new cases are being handled by Children and Youth Services in Pennsylvania, and both were opened within the last two months. Earlier today, Sandusky's attorney told ABC that he feared new charges would require a new bail hearing for his client, and that Sandusky would end up in jail as a result.
