Jerry Sandusky

Paterno Never Questioned Me

About Child Abuse

12/3/2011 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jerry Sandusky
Accused child molester Jerry Sandusky claims Joe Paterno never once confronted him about Sandusky's alleged rape of a 10-year-old boy in 2002 inside a Penn State locker room, despite having knowledge of the incident.

In an interview with the New York Times, Sandusky claims the former head coach also never spoke to him about a similar molestation complaint in 1998, investigated by the Penn State campus police. Sandusky said, “I never talked to him about either one. That’s all I can say. I mean, I don’t know.”

Paterno was fired last month, after failing to report the incidents to police.

During the interview, Sandusky insisted he never sexually abused any child, claiming prosecutors have "taken everything that I ever did for any young person and twisted it to say that my motives were sexual or whatever."

Sandusky has been charged with 40 counts of molesting eight boys over 15 years and is currently free on $100,000 bail.

Keep talking, Jerry, because you are just giving prosecutors more ammo to use at trial (if, in fact, you take that chance with a jury).

It's all about football and money, the hell with the kids- they should close down the football program for 6 years.

Placing blame on another for his paedo syndrome. Pathetic.

This predator still thinks it is ok to shower with 10 year olds.

Seriously! Everyone who's seen 1 episode of Law and Order knows you should SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP! Where are all these kids you were only "helping"? You would think they would be shouting from the rooftops "he only wanted to help me!" This guy needs to shut up and let the justice system work. And if these allegations are true, he needs to rot in prison, then burn in hell.

What a complete mess. The poor kids that were abandoned for money, football and Penn State. Shame on all those that knew and did nothing. Karma is a bitch and its coming for them. Lung cancer anyone?

In the first paragraph he says Paterno never confronted him, despite having knowledge of the incident. In the 4th paragraph, he says he never abused any child. So...which is it? Nothing like doing the prosecution's job for them!

Some men have a hard time dealing with that kind of information. I think JoePa chose to ignore it and just maybe it would go away. I think he knew, and did nothing about it which is just as bad. Football came first, you know "the show must go on." Sandusky has a shovel and is digging his own grave with every word that comes out of his mouth.

Paterno is no better than the disgusting slimy bastard that will burn in hell. He looked the other way like so many of the Penn state ********* for the sake of football. These kids I hope get some kind of closure from this horrible ordeal.
