New Sandusky Victim Files Abuse Lawsuit
Another victim has come forward claiming sexual abuse at the hands of former assistant Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky, and will reportedly file the first civil lawsuit in the case. The lawsuit alleges that the coach sexually abused the boy more than 100 times after meeting him through the Second Mile (Sandusky's at-risk youth program) in 1992.
Civil Lawsuit Alleges Gifts, Travel, Sexual Abuse
Although the plaintiff is not one of the eight included in the grand jury testimony that led to Sandusky’s arrest last month, his story reads much like that of the other victims. In the lawsuit, he claims that Sandusky lured him in with gifts, promises of travel and other privileges, and then abused him at the coach's home, at Penn State football facilities, and on at least one out-of-town football game trip.
Sandusky was arrested last month and charged with 40 counts of child sexual abuse. He is currently awaiting trial. He has maintained his innocence, admitting only that he showered with young boys but denying that he ever molested them.
