BELLEFTONE - Jeffrey Sandusky, the son of convicted sex offender and Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, pleaded guilty to 14 counts of child sex abuse Friday.

Sandusky pleaded guilty to every count one week before his trial, including 12 felonies.

As part of the plea agreement, Sandusky faces a minimum of three to six years in prison. Prosecutors will seek that he serves a four to eight-year sentence.

Sandusky will have to register as the highest tier of sex offender in the state.

Sandusky was charged in February after state police started an investigation in November of 2016 after a 16-year-old girl told investigators that in March of 2016 Sandusky asked her for nude photographs through text messages.

A second victim said Sandusky asked her through text messages to perform sex acts when she was 15 years old.

"This outcome ensures the victims need not to suffer the trauma and re-victimization of testifying at trial and importantly, the defendant will have to comply with strict sex offender registration requirements for the remainder of this life," said Centre County DA Stacy Parks Miller.

"We are happy that these girls can move forward and experience a life with adults that deserve their trust."
