BELLEFONTE, PA (AP) — Ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is out of jail after posting bail a day after being hit with new child sex abuse charges.

Sandusky left a Pennsylvania county jail Thursday in a grey sedan after securing his release with $200,000 in real estate holdings and a $50,000 certified check provided by his wife.

Under the terms of his release, Sandusky will be subject to electronic monitoring.

Sandusky was jailed Wednesday on 12 new charges of child sex abuse after a grand jury report released details of testimony from two new alleged victims. In all, Sandusky faces more than 50 charges and is accused of molesting 10 different boys.

He maintains his innocence.
