Report: Another Person Has Claimed To Be A Victim Of Jerry Sandusky

Tuesday November 8th, 2011

Another person has claimed to be a victim of alleged sexual abuse by Jerry Sandusky, the former defensive coordinator of Penn State University, according to The Patriot News of Harrisburg.

The male, now in his 20’s, reportedly contacted Pennsylvania state police Sunday after learning about the other, now public, charges against Sandusky. According to reports, the young-man had never told anyone, even his family, about the alleged incidents which he says occurred in the early 2000’s.

Sandusky has been charged by a state grand jury with counts of deviate sexual intercourse, corruption of minors, endangering the welfare of a child, and indecent assault. The most recent accusation is the ninth reported sexual assault claim against the former football coach. One such reported incident was in 2002, when a graduate student witnessed Sandusky showering with a ten-year-old boy. The student reported what he saw to long-time head coach Joe Paterno and Paterno in turn reported the incident to the administration. The administration failed to notify the police, breaking Pennsylvania law. The university only imposed a ban on Sandusky bringing children into the football facilities, however he was still allowed to visit the football facilities, and was seen there as recently as last week.
