Sandusky was moved from the Greene County maximum security prison to a facility in Pennsylvania’s Somerset Township. The facility — SCI Somerset — is 63 acres and sits on 240 acres of property.

Sandusky, 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.

In February, Sandusky’s son Jeffrey was arrested and charged with several child sexual solicitation and child porn charges counts, including solicitation of statutory sexual assault, solicitation of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse of a person less than 16 years old, and solicitation of child pornography.
