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.

As much as people hate him, he is going to walk because of the jurors. The prosecutor has blown this case. Not calling witnesses, not issuing a subpoena for the NBC interview footage and introducing this. Not putting his adopted kid on the stage.

it's pretty simple to tell if the kids are lying. Ask them to describe his junk and if they get it right, then they have obviously seen it and he's guilty.

When I heard that Sandusky adopted his kids I assumed then that his marriage was a sham. I also wonder did he molest any of his kids. Sandusky's wife should at least be sued for closing her eyes to what was going on.

He should slit his own throat or hang himself. Go out honorably. The only thing he could do to end this.

You watch. Jerry Sandusky will ultimately get away with this. IF this was your average Joe facing rape charges to this many children, that person would and has many times over gotten life sentences. The wealthy justice system folk will NOT put this man away. They are all players in the same social network. There is way to much money connected between these people and their organizations to ever put Jerry Sandusky away for life, which is a travesty because this man is very sick and has a serious problem and children are really not safe from him, or in his vicinity. He can not be rehabilitated. He has a SERIOUS problem.

To Nostradamus and Majestik--I agree with your responses to my comment. I just can't figure out why she let this happen. I hope she ends up next to him in jail.

The only real justice is Sandusky will be leaning against a shower wall with slapping sounds going on behind him...But then again He may see prison as a sexual blessing.

I'll bet this is going to be the largest abuse scandal america has ever seen.Bigger than the priest scandal because it is going to expose serious sexual abuse within his family. and co-conspiritors. He was allowed to have his grand children over after prosecution pleaded against it. THis perv has eleven grandchildren and six adopted children. Children everywhere!!!! repossess his twig and giggleberries and toss him and his wife in prison for the rest of their godless life.
