BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - Ex-Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky has posted $250,000 bail after spending a night in jail following new child sex abuse charges filed against him.

Court records Thursday morning show Sandusky posted bail using $200,000 in real estate holdings and a $50,000 certified check provided by wife Dorothy. It was not immediately clear whether he had been released.

Under the terms of his release, Sandusky will be confined to his home, subject to electronic monitoring and forbidden from having any contact with any witnesses or victims in the attorney general investigation.

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.

Sandusky was charged last month with sexually abusing 8 other boys over a 15-year span. He maintains his innocence.
