All eight of the boys who were allegedly sexually abused by Jerry Sandusky have agreed to testify against him in preliminary hearings next week, ABC News reports.

Sandusky’s lawyer, Joe Amendola, said in an NBC interview several weeks ago that the prosecution’s case was weak because of a lack of victims willing to coming forward and say, “This is what Jerry did to me.” However, it appears this is no longer the case.

Sandusky is facing 40 counts of sexually abusing young boys over a 15 year period. The former Penn State defensive coordinator has professed his innocence to both NBC and The New York Times. Preliminary hearings in the trial are slotted to begin Dec. 13, it is believed they will last several days.
