In a television interview, Jerry Sandusky, former defensive coordinator for Pennsylvania State University’s football team denied that he is a pedophile. The interview may have agitated other victims as The New York Times revealed that 10 additional victims have come forward as well against him.
This will be an additional problem for Sandusky who was indicted earlier this month on 40 counts of sexually abusing eight young boys.
During the TV interview, Sandusky said:
“I could say that I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids, I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact. I shouldn’t have showered with those kids.”
Sandusky has been formally charged already in the sex abuse of eight children. The acts were reportedly to have taken place as early as 1994. The scandal led to the firing of legendary coach Joe Paterno and three university officials.
