Jerry Sandusky and a Penn State booster sexually abused boys on a private plane, a witness has come forward to claim to federal authorities, according to Radar Online.
The allegations have been made as U.S. Postal Inspectors were interviewing a witness as part of new investigations to find out whether Sandusky had shared child pornography.
The witness has claimed that Sandusky and the booster abused two boys while on a private plane in Pennsylvania. According to Radar Online the witness apparently has a "strong tie to the booster he is accusing."
However, the unidentified source has told Radar that they do not know whether the two boys who were sexually abused in the plane incident were previously identified as victims.
Penn State's Jerry Sandusky has been convicted on 45 counts related to the sexual abuse of 10 boys. However, even though the former assistant football coach at the university has not yet been sentenced, authorities are already now investigating new claims of abuse.
Penn State University also previously took down a statue of famed state football coach Joe Paterno, accused of concealing Sandusky's abuse claims, from outside the football stadium last month.
The bronze statue, nearly 7-foot-tall and weighing over 900 pounds, was built outside the Beaver Stadium on the campus of Penn State in 2001 in honor of Paterno's record-setting 324th Division 1 coaching victory and his "contributions to the university."
The university decided to remove the monument in the face of an investigative report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh that found the late coach, along with three top Penn State administrators, concealed the abuse claims against Sandusky more than a decade ago to shield the university and its football program from negative publicity, according to NBC News.
The statue had "become a lightning rod of controversy and national debate, including the role of big time sports in university life," Penn State University President Rodney Erickson said in a statement. "The Freeh Report has given us a great deal to reflect upon and to consider, including Coach Paterno's legacy."
In other news the NCAA has also imposed a multi-year bowl ban on the Penn State football team. It has also invalidated 112 of its victories and fined the school $60 million.
