Jerry Sandusky Has Been Implicated In A 1970s Child Prostitution Ring


The New York Daily News is reporting that 48-year-old Greg Bucceroni of Philadelphia has sent an email to Poly Prep, a high school in Brooklyn, claiming that he was a child prostitute in a ring that included several men, including the soon to be sentenced Jerry Sandusky.

Here’s more via the NYDN:

“In the email to Poly Prep, Bucceroni said he was “a child prostitute” and was associated with a pedophile ring that included Sandusky, [former Poly Prep coach Phil] Foglietta, now-deceased Philadelphia businessman Ed Savitz and former Wharton School of Business professor Lawrence Scott Ward, who is serving a lengthy prison sentence for trafficking in child porn and smuggling photos and videos of himself having sex with a teenage Brazilian boy.

‘(Between) 1977-1980 I was a child prostitute associated with a tri-state (NYC-NJ-PA) pedophile ring. (During the) summer of 1979 I was brought to the State College area by Ed Savitz for the purpose of child prostitution with Jerry Sandusky at a Second Mile fundraiser,” Bucceroni wrote in the email. “Due to time constraints, Sandusky became unavailable and I was introduced to Phil Foglietta by Ed Savitz & Jerry Sandusky. Foglietta was introduced to us as Coach Phil who coached youth football in NYC. Foglietta agreed to pay $200.00 for child sex and followed us back to a Philadelphia hotel, myself (sic)ad another child prostitute then engaged coach Phil in child sex.’

Though Bucceroni says he never enrolled in the Second Mile due to an altercation between himself and Savitz, his accusations link Sandusky to well beyond the reach of just his own State College confines.

There are many more details to the story not pertaining to Sandusky which you can check out over at the NYDN, but you might be just as tired of all of this as we are.

    You’re “tired of this?” The only reason I ever came to your site, providing ad revenue to you, was because of this article. Non-sports fans are giving you traffic you’d never have gotten.

    As I wrote some time back, the Tale of Saint Jerry of Second Mile is an iceberg, 90% of which is beneath the water. That’s why various members of our ever-so corrupt ruling class came down so hard on Penn State University and the corpse of Joe Paterno. It was all a DISTRACTION, stagecraft designed to keep the rubes attention from the truth of the thing. (Most of you would be numbered among the “rubes”.) Here, we see HS coaches OUTSIDE OF Happy Valley and a famous Professor at an Ivy League school, the University of Pennsylvania, were connected to Saint Jerry’s diabolical “games”.

    There will be many, many others. Some of them will be people whose names many of you will know. Governors and Senators and CEOs and Generals, perhaps. Maybe even a would-be President in the 2016 election cycle. Or, merely the political “friends” and benefactors of some of these men (and women?)

    Bye the bye, it’s non-partisan. Democrats and Republicans both. Count on it. A LOT of political favors were given out in order to get all of those college Presidents and the NCAA to act as quickly as they did. Heck, it may even be that some big-time newspapermen and TV broadcasters (or talk-show hosts) were among Jerry’s “clients”.

    Don’t say that I didn’t tell you so, when you were carrying pitch forks, angrily screaming at a dead man who almost certainly was blameless. SMH at sheople.
