Jerry Sandusky posts $250,000 bail, is released from jail

Updated at 3:08 p.m.; originally filed at 9:50 a.m.

After spending a night in jail, former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky has posted $250,000 bail, according to court documents and was released from the Centre County, Pa., Correctional Facility.

Sandusky, who was charged Wednesday with 12 new counts of child sex abuse of two new alleged victims, reportedly put up $200,000 in property and a $50,000 certified check provided by his wife, Dorothy. Sandusky will be confined to his home, must wear an ankle monitor and cannot have access to witnesses or victims or unsupervised contact with minors. He left jail early Thursday afternoon, going to his home in a gray sedan and ignoring questions from reporters.

He is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 13, when he has a hearing on the previous 40 counts of child sex abuse of eight victims that he originally faced as well as these new charges. Sandusky maintains he is innocent of all charges.

As for Sandusky’s night in jail, Edward DeSabato, warden of the jail, told the Associated Press that it was uneventful. Sandusky had his own cell in an area of the facility in which new prisoners and the level of security that they will require are evaluated for 48-to-72 hours.
