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.

Sandusky damaged many lives by molesting these boys and has the nerve to act like you did nothing wrong? Bastard. Sandusky acts like this whole thing is a joke. I bet Paterno did have a couple talks with him.

Why is this long term serial molestor free on bail? The folks of PA need to string him up like a monster in a horror movie.

There's a problem here    

I'm sure Joe Paterno dropped the ball on this one by doing only what he had to do and no more,but it wasn't Joe Paterno grooming and raping children from the institution you started to gather child sexual objects to you like a garden. I am hoping that the more of the adults/children you ruined with your sick sexual desires come forward the stronger they all get and they come in droves to give you your due, you sick freak.

Gawd this man is such disgusting slime, lock him up & lose the key. If in fact there is a real Creator and will be a "judgement" of his everlasting soul in his "afterlife", this man is likely headed for the deepest bowels of Hades.

Sandusky is sick and needs to be in jail. All of his victims need to come forward and tell their story, or write it for a movie script......Paterno needs to go to jail for not defending children....they probably did stuff together, but no one wants to mention that. Jail forever sicky pedophile

Sandusky reminds me so much of that pedo Michael Jackson. Sandusky claims he was just "horsing around" with the kids just like Jacko admitted to sleeping in the same bed as kiddies. These two pukes are vile, disgusting sickos!

Sandusky is no different than Wacko Jacko with all the ridiculous excuses. They both set up charities and worked with underprivileged children to get close to the most vulnerable..used power, celebrity and money to get their way.

They're techniques are classic abuser techniques.

Very sad situation. At least no one else will be harmed by Jacko.
