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.

if by some miracle an incompetent, uneducated, sports fanatic jury member(s) causes him a hung jury or not guilty verdict and they have another retrial....the son and his memories (which apparently are flooding back) will be the final nail in his coffin
too bad the son's memories didn't return sooner- but it happens- trauma like that can sometimes be blocked out, buried deep in denial , with some who were victimized as youngsters, in order for them to be able to move forward with their lives
sometimes the memories return- triggered by somehting
other times they remain where they are- but still affect the person for the rest of their life- and most often in a negative way- like drug/alcohol abuse

Don't know if I believe this claim since the prosecutors DID NOT have him testify. Seems to me that this would have been more damning testimony than the others.

The system fails the victims every single time. I now from experience. They usually walk and abuse more children. In my experience it was a teacher who molested students. 5 came forward and testified bottom line he is still a teacher to this day. Thanks justice system,

I knew it, I thought all along that he molested those boys he adopted as well. And his hag face wife knew all along what he was doing, she is a bold face liar.she should go to prison for perjury and.as part of his punishemen. His penis should be cut off and stuffed in his mouth and hopefully he will choke to death. They are two of the most despicable people on this earth.

It's often the case that Mom will look the other way and deny the kid experienced that - often because she's being abused too (in other ways), or it's just so f*cking disgusting she doesn't want to even think about it! I am not surprised... I was just wondering why aren't his childrent defending him... because he dicked with them too!!! TRUTH!

Who on earth are the 3% who voted "No" in the poll? Sandusky's wife? Busy woman, to vote so many times.

Why waste money putting him on "suicide watch?" Just let him kill himself, just get it done and over with...or forget the sentencing phase, straight to the pokey and put him in general population. I'd like to see how long he lasts, even inmates frown upon child molesters...
