Jeffrey Sandusky, one of the adopted sons of disgraced former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, pleaded guilty in Pennsylvania Friday to sexually abusing children.

The 41-year-old admitted to texting a teenage girl and requesting nude photos and oral sex from her sister, reported the New York Post.

Sandusky pleaded guilty to 14 criminal counts, including solicitation of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. He will spend at least six years in state prison under the terms of his guilty plea, but a judge could impose a sentence of up to eight years.

Sandusky will become a Tier III sex offender, the most severe category in Pennsylvania, reported CNN.

“We are happy that these girls can move forward and experience a life with adults that deserve their trust,” said Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller.

Sandusky, who worked as a state prison guard, instructed the first victim “to not show these texts to anyone” when he solicited nude photos in March 2016. The victim’s father sent the communications to investigators in November.

The victim said Sandusky kept pressuring her for inappropriate photos, according to authorities. Sandusky also allegedly asked the victim’s sister, who was 15 years old at the time, for oral sex in 2013.

Sandusky previously fought hard to clear the name of his father, Jerry, who is currently serving a prison sentence for molesting 10 boys.
