“Close to 10” more suspected victims have come forward to authorities since the arrest of former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, according to The New York Times.
The police are working to confirm the new allegations, according to the Times.
Monday night, Sandusky said in an interview with NBC that he was “innocent” of the charges against him and is not a pedophile.
“I have horsed around with kids,” Sandusky did acknowledge. “I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact.” He added: “I enjoy being around children. I enjoy their enthusiasm. I just have a good time with them.”
