Prosecutors have finally pulled back the curtain on exactly what they're accusing Jerry Sandusky of, and it's not pretty. Sandusky allegedly molested 10 boys, ranging in age from 8 to 17, according to a "bill of particulars" the Attorney General's office filed yesterday. What's more, prosecutors claim eight of his victims were abused on the Penn State campus, including five abused in the Lasch Building, Penn State's football headquarters, the Pittsburgh Tribune reports.

Other alleged molestation venues include Sandusky's home, his car, various hotel rooms, a Penn State pool, and other locations around State College and in Clinton County, where he volunteered as a high school football coach. Nor were his misdeeds confined to Pennsylvania; one victim was allegedly abused during bowl trips Penn State took to Florida and Texas. The document also says that two of Sandusky's victims remain unidentified—including the boy Mike McQueary allegedly saw being violated in the infamous shower incident.
