Jeff Sandusky is one of the notorious former Penn State football assistant's adopted children.

But on Friday, according to the Associated Press, Jeffrey Sandusky pleaded guilty to all counts as part of a deal with prosecutors. Upon release, he will be forced to register as a sex offender.

Jeffrey's guilty plea will land him in jail for at least 3 years, with the judge being able to impose a sentence up to 8 years.

Pennsylvania State Police began investigating the case after the younger sister reported the conduct to her parents and her father discovered text exchanges from Sandusky asking for nude photos.

He also will be evaluated to determine if he meets the criteria as a sexually violent predator as defined by the Sex Offender Registration Act, according to the DA's office. The child was the daughter of a woman he once dated.

The girl told the police that the texts made her uncomfortable and that "he kept pressuring me and asked me multiple times not to show the texts to anyone", the police said.

That girl told investigators that Mr. Sandusky later told her, "I can't even say anything except I'm sorry". She told police she believed Sandusky also had tried to watch her while she was in the shower.

The affidavit said Mr. Sandusky told the girl in texts from March 2016 that "it's not weird because he studied medicine" and instructed her "to not show these texts to anyone".

Sandusky was set to go to trial next week in Centre County, Pennsylvania. but entered an early plea of guilty to all counts with the court in the hope of getting a lighter sentence.

"While we were fully prepared to proceed to trial, today's guilty plea to all charges ensures a significant prison sentence for defendant's solicitation of child sex crimes with two minors that once completely trusted him", Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller said in a statement.
