(Newser) – As if the Jerry Sandusky child-rape scandal were not bad enough, now the US Postal Service and Justice Department are investigating whether the former Penn State assistant coach was involved in a child-porn ring, reports CBS News. Investigators have apparently dug up child pornography on Sandusky's computer, although they say the images are not of any of the children Sandusky abused. The network's sources have conflicting information on whether Sandusky is alleged to have shared the images with others.

"I haven't heard a thing about this latest allegation," said Sandusky's lawyer. "Jerry continues to maintain his innocence. We think the allegation is ridiculous." In addition, investigators have found "seductive letters" on Sandusky's computer, sent to six or seven victims, along with gifts, encouraging them to visit him from across state lines.
