Judge Who Freed Sandusky on Bail Reportedly Volunteered at His Charity

The judge who ordered former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky be freed on $100,000 unsecured bail on charges he sexually abused eight boys reportedly volunteered for his charity.

District Judge Leslie Dutchcot, who handled Sandusky’s preliminary arraignment, gave his Second Mile charity between $500 and $1,000 and worked as a volunteer for the group, Fox affiliate WTXF-TV reports.

The report comes after separate revelations that Sandusky was continuing to receive hefty pension payouts from the university. According to the Harrisburg Patriot-News, Sandusky took a nearly $150,000 lump-sum payment at retirement and still gets almost $60,000 a year.

Sandusky, 67, has been charged with 21 felony counts for allegedly sexually abusing eight boys over a 15-year period. He denies the charges.
