(Newser) – Three men have come forward to accuse Jerry Sandusky of sexual abuse in the 1970s or 1980s, reports the Patriot-News, punching a hole in Sandusky's assertion that he couldn't have magically turned into a pedophile in his 50s. These are the first accusations against Sandusky that pre-date the 1990s, and one man's claim of abuse in the early '70s would have taken place while Sandusky was in his late 20s. Louis Freeh was asked Thursday if he had looked for earlier victims, and replied, "yes." He did not elaborate.
