    Sandusky faces new charges based on the testimony of two new accusers -- Victim 9 and Victim 10 --  including one who claims Sandusky molested him numerous times in a basement bedroom at Sandusky's home. He already faced 40 counts of child sex abuse involving eight young boys over a 15-year span.

    Sandusky lawyer Joseph Amendola says his client maintains his innocence.

    Senior Magisterial District Judge Robert E. Scott said if Sandusky does make bail, he will be under house arrest and subject to electronic monitoring.

    Prosecutors had sought $1 million in bail.
