(Newser) – Some 10 new accusers have come forward with complaints concerning former defensive coach Jerry Sandusky since his arrest earlier this month, the New York Times reports. Detectives are currently investigating all accusation against Sandusky, who has already been hit with 40 counts of sexually abusing young boys, says the newspaper. News of the latest accusations comes just as Sandusky is declaring his innocence, saying he did nothing more than playfully touch or shower with the boys named in the charges against him.
