    Allegations against Jerry Sandusky, the former defensive coordinator for the Penn State football team who was charged yesterday with sexually abusing eight boys and barred from campus on Sunday, are slowly being revealed. The victims testified before a state grand jury that they were in their early teens when some of the abuse occurred, and there is evidence that some may have been even younger. One victim, now 27, testified that Sandusky started a "soap battle" in the shower that led to many instances of sex assault. The same accuser said he often traveled to charity functions and Penn State games with Sandusky, but was always threatened with being sent home when he resisted Sandusky's advances. A janitor allegedly witnessed another child, estimated to be between 11 and 13, being pinned up against a wall while Sandusky gave him oral sex in 2000, according to the grand jury. Sandusky was arraigned and released on $100,000 bail on Saturday. Late Sunday, Tim Curley, Penn State's athletic director, and Gary Schultz, the vice president for finance and business, reportedly stepped down because after allegations of covering-up the scandal.
