Disgraced former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky faces new allegations of sexual abuse, according to officials.

An unknown person reported to the university police department on Tuesday that Sandusky sexually between June 2000 and September 2010, the spokesperson Wyatt DuBois, told the Centre Daily Times.

“This incident report is the result of the university’s internal and external reporting procedures upon receipt of a new allegation of sexual abuse by Jerry Sandusky,” DuBois said. “An investigation is in progress, and we don’t have any further comment.”

Sandusky, 75, was convicted in 2012 of 45 counts of sexual abuse of children. He was convicted and sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison. However, it is a condition of the court, the court of appeal ruled in February that the statutory minimum had been wrongly applied in this case. Sandusky will be resentenced on Aug. 8, in the Town of in the County court in Bellefonte.

Last week, Sandusky appealed to a federal district court to grant him a new trial or release him from prison. Are the claims of a tainted trial, and, in 2012, among other things, a prosecutor’s reference to the members of the jury, that Sandusky will not testify; that his former lawyers did not have enough time to prepare for it, and that the legal team has made a number of mistakes.

Sandusky’s lawyer, Al Lindsay, told the Centre Daily Times on Thursday that he had not spoken with his client about the “vague” claim is not.

Penn State has paid out more than $100 million to settle claims by about three dozen people who alleged Sandusky abused them. The scandal also prompted Penn State to change to a litany of policies and procedures, and this has resulted in changes to the law to protect abused children.

Sandusky was a defensive coordinator for more than two decades of legendary Nittany Lions head coach Joe Paterno, prior to the next following the 1999 season. Paterno was fired days after Sandusky’s arrest in November 2011 and died of lung cancer the following January.

An investigation led by former FBI director Louis Freeh found that Paterno and other university officials “repeatedly concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky’s child abuse from authorities, the University’s Board of trustees, Penn State community and the public at large.” However, it is exactly what Paterno knew about it, his faithful assistant, the behaviour continues to be a subject of controversy.
