Jeffrey Sandusky's father, Jerry Sandusky, is a retired Penn State defensive coordinator who was convicted of 45 of 48 counts of child sex crimes and sentenced to serve 30 to 60 years in prison in 2012; he has denied the accusations. Jeffrey Sandusky is one of Jerry Sandusky's six adopted children, and defended his father against his brother Matt's allegations that Jerry had sexually molested him for years: "Matt is truly a good person," Jeffrey told Bleacher Report in 2015, according to NBC News. "I care for him. I do. And I want the best for him. But this is bull. My dad is innocent. I can guarantee you that. He's innocent."
