Jerry Sandusky

8 Alleged Victims to Testify

... According to Report

12/6/2011 8:49 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jerry Sandusky
All 8 alleged victims mentioned in the explosive Jerry Sandusky grand jury report will testify against the former Penn State defensive coach at a preliminary hearing next week ... this according to ABC News.

Sandusky's lawyer had previously stated that his legal team had contacted the person who was allegedly raped in the Penn State locker room ... and that person insisted nothing ever happened.

But according to ABC, that person -- and all of the rest -- will say they WERE abused when they take the stand.

The prelim is set to begin on Dec. 13. Jerry is currently facing 40 counts of child sex abuse.

I bet all those Penn State rioters are all feeling on the uppity for throwing a riot in support for their chomo harboring coach.

This Jerry Paedosky is one sick individual in serious denial. I hope the guy rots in hell but with the way current PA handles law (Just like CA), this guy might get 1 week probation and a parade in his honour.

With this many grown men willing to come forward and say this happened, and willing to testify against him, I'm starting to believe it. They are not out for money, and it takes a lot of courage to sit on a stand and say that this happened to you. If you did this Jerry, you need to confess and not have these people relive the horror of that time in their lives.

Off with his head. Both of them.

Total POS to even be showering and "playing" with underage kids, by his own admission, whether or not any molesting/rape took place. Which I'm sure it did anyway. Where there's smoke there's fire. And where there's a pedo there's a nice prison cell with big angry Bubba waiting for him.

Shame has engulfed Penn State University after Sandusky was outed as a paedophile who groomed all of his victims through a charity known as called The Second Mile that, ironically, was set up to protect at-risk children. The founders and backers of this charity include such local luminaries as business magnates, university trustees, coaches and football stars.
Naturally, there is speculation as to who was involved, or had knowledge of this institutional child abuse ring. Penn State’s legendary head football coach Joe Paterno was eventually fired, along with the university’s president as a result of implications that higher-ups either were aware of the crimes but did nothing about it, choosing instead to ‘look the other way’ – or worse, were actually involved in a long-running litany of child abuse activity behind the prestigious cover of a multi-million dollar national sports program.
Scandals and corruption are nothing new to college sports in America – cash for recruits, academic eligibility fraud, laundering money through booster programs, sports agent pay-offs, steroid abuse, drug abuse, drunk driving, university cover-ups violent assaults by coaches and athletes, athletes accused of rape perpetrated against female students, and the list goes on. Anyone who has attended university with a successful college sports program will have heard of at least one of these incidents happening at some point during their four year degree. Considering the hundreds of millions of dollar that are on offer to NCAA Division One sports programs across the country, it’s not surprising if high-ranking institutional officials would opt to ‘look the other way’ or even engage in a cover-up, rather than tackle abuses which were occurring right within their midst.
Considering the closeness and constant vetting required by major college sports programs in the US, it’s doubtful that Head Coaches Joe Patterno and Jim Boeheim, who had both worked with their assistant coaches for multiple decades, would know absolutely nothing about their staff’s unhealthy over-enthusiasm for young boys. In Patterno’s case at least, the fact he was forced out of a 40 year post – a career spanning through eight US Presidents, might indicate that he was covering corruption on some level at least – otherwise he would not have bolted so quickly.
Institutional corruption involving child sexual abuse has been do***ented in US day care schools, elementary and high schools, and at the university level. These latest two scandals are likely to be only the tip of a much bigger iceberg.
Indeed, many Americans will look forward to more culprits of child sex abuse being exposed, shamed, tried and sentenced for their crimes – particularly those individuals who use their institutional positions of influence to gain trust, and use as cover for their horrible acts of inhumanity.

That's not what your article said. TMZ reported that the lawyers "think" they found the person, even though they don't know the names of the victims.

TMZ, just trying to make it sound like the victim changed their story.

Geez TMZ, is it really necessary to have the entire screen hyper-linked to Sony? One finger twitch and boom, I go to the Sony page.

He is sick, very very sick. I think he believes what he did is normal and acceptable. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out that he was subjected to this while growing up as well and he was brainwashed into thinking this is normal. I am not making excuses for him. What he did is horrible. It's so screwed up. He's so screwed up. Those guys at Penn State who knew and did nothing to protect those kids should be charged along with him.

Not everything the victims say is true and not everything Sandusky says is a lie. The man is innocent UNTIL PROVEN guilty you f-ing blood thirsty savages.
