Jeffrey Sandusky, son of Jerry Sandusky, has pled guilty to all 14 counts of child sex abuse on Friday.

Police launched an investigation against Jeffrey Sandusky in November 2016 after a minor claimed that she had received text messages from Jeffery Sandusky asking her for nude photos.

The guilty plea arrived one week before Jeffrey Sandusky's trial was scheduled to begin in Centre County, Pennsylvania. They included felony counts of solicitation to commit statutory sexual assault, solicitation to commit involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, two counts of solicitation to commit sexual abuse of children, two counts of solicitation to photograph, videotape, depict on computer, or film sexual acts and six counts of unlawful contact with a minor. In 2013 he also solicited oral sex from the teen's older sister, who was 15 at the time.

Jeffrey Sandusky, a state prison guard, knew the girls through their mother, the authorities said. Prosecutors will ask that he serve four to eight-years.
