It is well-known that Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was convicted of 45 of 48 counts of sex abuse of minors in a trial that rocked the nation and toppled the legacy of revered coach Joe “JoePa” Paterno. But according to the following story, his depravity doesn’t end there.
Sandusky, who faces life in prison, was also allegedly involved in a child prostitution ring uncovered at Poly Prep Country Day School in Brooklyn, New York. Greg Bucceroni, 48, claims that he was a child prostitute handpicked for Sandusky but was passed off to someone else because he became “unavailable.”

“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. 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 and another child prostitute then engaged coach Phil in child sex.”
Though “Coach Phil” was never charged with any crimes during his 25 year career at Poly, in 2004, ten former students filed a lawsuit, “alleging the school failed to protect them from sexual abuse at the hands of Foglietta,” reports KTLA.
“I’m not surprised there was another case related to [Sandusky]….that there was a tri-state ring,” said Carol Smolenski, Executive Director of End Child Prostitution and Trafficking (EC-PAT USA). “As all of these cases are showing, it’s respectable people, well-paid businessmen, or so many people in positions of power that are exploiting children.”
As previously reported by NewsOne, Sandusky was placed on suicide watch after fellow inmates taunted him with the lyrics to him from the classic Pink Floyd song “The Wall”:
“Hey, teacher! Leave those kids alone.”
This latest development couldn’t possibly help matters.
