Jerry Sandusky's adopted son says he was abused by the former Penn State assistant football coach ... and was prepared to testify at his father's sex abuse trial.

33-year-old Matt Sandusky -- one of Jerry's six adopted children -- released a statement through his attorney saying he is a "victim of Jerry Sandusky's abuse."

Matt did not disclose any details regarding the nature and time frame of the abuse.

Matt's lawyers said Matt did meet with investigators recently ... and was willing to testify. It's unclear why Matt was not called to the stand.

The jury is now deliberating in the Jerry Sandusky case -- he's accused of sexually abusing 10 boys over a span of 15 years and faces 500 years in prison if convicted on all 48 counts.

Why didn't the prosecutors put the MOST DAMNING of all witnesses on the stand. MY GOD, if this is true, what about the other five? Now what does his wife have to say about his innocence?

Thank-goodness he is speaking out about his abuse, and in turn (hopefully) stopping the cycle from continuing. It's unfortunate it has to be against his own father, but a positive step towards striving for safer environments for all.

I wonder if they held out so they could bring him up on separate charges if he gets off the hook on this.

I FRIGGING KNEW IT. There was no way in hell that he didn't touch one of his own kids. Pervs don't just spring up over night.
And he wants to have visitation with his grandkids????? Why so he can continue to molest more kids. If the rest of his kids allow that, they are truly, truly stupid. Not to mention culpable.
Why didn't he come forward sooner??? The rest of the victims got hung out to dry and he was a victim too and he didn't tell????

Glad he finally developed a spine, and this information could have been used to counter the mother's testimony about never hearing or seeing a thing. So the DA screwed up Big time.
