Authorities said their investigation began in November when the father of a teenage daughter told them she had received an inappropriate text message from Jeffrey Sandusky. The two had communicated for months, court documents say.

Court documents say police also spoke with another victim who received communications from Sandusky.

Sandusky's father, an assistant football coach at Penn State between 1969 and 1999, was tried and convicted on nearly 50 child sexual assault charges in 2012 and sentenced to between 30 and 60 years in prison.
