New allegations of child sex ring involving Sandusky and NYC prep school surfaces (video)

The sickness that is Jerry Sandusky seems to know no bounds, for yet more depravity is alleged. According to the New York Daily News, the convicted child molester is accused of being involved in child porn and a child prostitution ring which spanned New York’s tri-state.

The former Penn State football coach, who is currently sitting in prison and is expected to die there after being convicted on 45 out of 48 counts of child molestation, is now accused of more despicable acts. Self-proclaimed former child prostitute, 48-year-old Greg Bucceroni, has reportedly involved Sandusky and a deceased coach from an elite prep school in Brooklyn along with two others, of having sex for money with him and another child in 1979 and of being part of a child sex ring.

In an email sent to the prestigious Poly Prep Country Day school where the dead Phil Foglietta had been the football coach for more than 20 years, Bucceroni exposed the alleged child prostitution ring where the four men, along with others, repeatedly solicited sex from minors.

The email which, was reportedly sent on Monday, told officials about a 1979 encounter Bucceroni said he was supposed to have with Sandusky, which was cancelled because of “time constraints” and how he had sex with Coach Foglietta instead. Details of that sexual encounter included the prize paid for alleged sex with Bucceroni and another underage boy in a Philadelphia hotel room, which was $200.

Bucceroni, who would have been 15 when the alleged prostitution occured, said he was paid for sex over a three-year period. The alleged child sex ring included two other men besides Sandusky and Foglietta. They were Pennsylvania businessman Ed Savitz and former Wharton School of Business professor Lawrence Scott Ward. Savitz was convicted of child molestation in 1992 but died of AIDS before he could serve anytime for his crimes. Ward is currently in prison for child porn.

Bucceroni is not the only one making those shocking claims. Twelve alumni from Brooklyn Poly Prep have filed a lawsuit against the school, accusing them of knowing about the rape and abuse by Foglietta for more than 20 years but not doing anything to stop it. They claimed the school covered up the molestation while presenting the coach as an outstanding pillar of the community.

Recognize the modus operandi? That is exactly what happened at Penn State—while Sandusky sexually abused and raped young boys for decades, Penn State and the charity Second Mile appeared to not only look the other way, but covered up the crimes as well.

The FBI is also investigating allegations of child prostitution and child porn, but the reports aren’t clear if both cases are the same. In the attached video above, Bucceroni talks to radio host Victor Thorn about the explosive allegations of Sandusky and others, using his Charity Second Mile to pimp young boys out to rich patrons. Bucceroni himself started out at the charity, opened decades ago by Sandusky, ostensibly to mentor at-risk kids. We now know it was a cover for the former outwardly well-liked and respectable coach and philantropist to groom boys for his own sexual depravity--a depravity now alleged to be deeper and more far-reaching.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the lawsuit filed by the 12 alumni of Poly Prep marks a turning point in New York's stringent statute of limitation laws, which are some of the strictest laws in the country. Child sexual abuse advocates have fought long and hard to change that and see this as a win for that fight, because a judge has allowed the lawsuit against Brooklyn’s Poly Prep to proceed.
