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.

These people were foster parents. Who knows how many children were molested. I shudder to think about it. My nephew and niece were in foster care many times in another state. They should have psychologists evaluate foster parents before they can take any kids. I think of all the ADULTS that knew what was going on and did NOTHING about it. I hope Penn State gets their asses sued off. They deserve no less for their silence. Make an example of them so people will think twice about being silent. Rot in hell Jerry.

Sandusky is a gutless Bastard. I'm betting that when he is convicted he will off himself rather than go to prison and face grown men instead of little boys. God has a special place in hell reserved for the Sandusky's of the world.

Unfortunately, when society devolves to a a point where sexually deviant behavior such as homosexuality is somehow considered acceptable, perverts like this creep inevitably take it to the next level.

Sandusky's son couldn't testify because it had no bearing on the case. He's not one of the victims, he's not one of the accused, and he hasn't got anything except heresay about what may have happened between him and his father.

Now if there are more victims, including Sandusky's son, then there can be an additional trial where Sandusky can face those charges.

But this case has to be tried on the basis of the evidence they have relating to the ten named victims, nothing else is relevant.

Sanduskys wife had to have known about the abuse,no on could be that clueless. The fact that an adopted child was also abused is even more horrifing. I hope the DA goes after her for perjury
