Two new alleged victims have come forward claiming they were abused by Jerry Sandusky. As MSNBC reports, if the new allegations are found to be credible, they would be the first known cases involving individuals still under the age of 18.

The new allegations against Jerry Sandusky were reported less than 60 days ago.

Because of the age of the individuals involved, Pennsylvania's Children and Youth Services are investigating the new allegations.

Sandusky faces 40 criminal counts accusing him of sexually abusing eight boys beginning in the mid-'90s.

Sandusky, who is maintaining his innocence, was to appear at a hearing on Tuesday, but the hearing was rescheduled for December 13 in order “to accommodate the logistical needs involved in the hearing.”
