Though the story may have been somewhat quiet over the past few days, more details and potential issues continue surfacing in the case of former Penn State assistant Jerry Sandusky.

Sandusky's premilinary hearing is scheduled for December 13th.

In today's developments, several things have happened.

One: Harrisburg Patriot-News reporter Sara Ganim reports that two more possible allegations against Sandusky have surfaced. Ganim reports both investigations by the state's Department of Child Services have been opened within the past 60 days and both victims are alleged to be under 18.

Two: Sandusky's attorney, Joe Amendola tells ABC News several things. Among them that his client was a "Tough" mentor and that the accusations were "Retaliation" for that. He also says the victim told prosecutors and investigators what they wanted to hear because they "Pampered" him.

Amendola also admitted to ABC that the possibility exists for more charges to be leveled against his client. That comment would substantiate the report in the Patriot-News.

And finally, a late developing story from the Associated Press in Pennsylvania:

All Centre County judges have recused themselves from hearing the Sandusky case. The state's administrative court announced that out-of-county judges will hear anything involving the case from here on in.

You'll recall some controversy arose when the magistrate court judge hearing Sandusky's bail hearing was questioned after a perceived lenient bond and concerns because she was a volunteer and donor to Sandusky's Second Mile charity.
