STATE COLLEGE, Pa (Reuters) - The lawyer for the Penn State football coach charged with child sex abuse said in an interview on Monday the boy at the center of a 2002 incident detailed in the grand jury's report had been identified and said it never happened.
Jerry Sandusky, the former defensive coordinator for the Penn State Nittany Lions, was arrested more than a week ago on charges he sexually abused eight young boys over a 15-year period.
Speaking to sportscaster Bob Costas, Joe Amendola, who represents Sandusky, said "we anticipate we're going to have at least several of those kids come forward and say, 'This never happened.'"
Sandusky, in a telephone interview with Costas that aired at the same time, acknowledged he had horsed around and showered with children involved in the Second Mile charity he founded.
But he denied he was a pedophile.

We heard that families have been pleading for years for something to be done about this. Now many victims (as always seems to happen) will be denying it. Who wants to be known for it in such a big case?
This is why they had Star Chambers.
The victims never came forward by name for obvious reasons, but now, they will come forward to say it never happened? Everything about this operation is evil.
Let’s see if every reported victim backs out before hollering that the sky is falling.
I haven’t been following the story is there proof beyond this boy who retracted (if he did, I don’t know if he said it happened before). The little I’ve heard sure makes him seem guilty.
Big bags of money are being carried back and forth.
The brute Sandusky is laughing on national TV about his fun and games with boys.
Dear Lord, could you spare one giant lightning bolt,to hit the Sandusky house, while Jerry is in the shower?
(We are having thunderstorms here tonight.)
There are very powerful people who don’t want the truth to get out.
Yep, he is buying off the victims.
It is a cabal, in the worst sense of the word.
I’m starting to think this goes all the way to the PA state house...perhaps even higher.
And we thought OJ and Casey Anthony were bad? America, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
We’re about to get a crash course in just how screwed our beloved country really is.
Didn’t a DA disappear that tried to stop him. So now they are going to make the childs name public for the crazies to attack. When you think it can’t get any worse...it does.
Ya, I don’t really want sex crazed pedophiles running around raping my kids. Obviously you do. Chemical castration would be enough for me.
We saw this movie before with the Michael Jackson case. That Doc that killed him should be hailed as a hero.
Totally agree with your post.
Unfortunately for Sandusky, there is a witness to it.
Maybe it’s an inapt comparison, but this reminds me of when the Hillary Clinton campaign was found to have taken dirty campaign contributions from phony donors. Their response was along the lines of “we returned all of that money”, and yet, they could not possibly have done so because those donors had phony names and addresses.
In this instance, the attorney is claiming that he has located the supposed victim, who claims that nothing happened. How exactly do you do that, without starting with a specific, named, known victim? Do you ask the perp for the name of the person who he “didn’t” sodomize in the shower, and then contact the victim and get him to agree that he was not a victim? Or do you contact all 10-year-olds who were in the program at the time, and ask them whether or not they were sodomized in the shower?
Something strange is going on there...
2012 may really go down in history as the year America ended. There are so many ongoing events that are going to drive the public to do desperate things.
The DA who disappeared declined to prosecutor. So maybe some of you lynch mob advocates are who disappeared him?
How long before they get to McQueary and shut him up—maybe permanently?
Yep, this thing runs very deep. Sandusky is small potatoes.
Of course he will walk. It was never in doubt.
Jackson reportedly paid hush money. Has anything analogous taken place here?
Lynch MOB. Excuse me but didn’t McQueary witness the assault.
Someone is pulling some pretty powerful strings. don’t you think?
“This boy has no family — It’ll be as if he never existed. All that’s left is our friendship.”
Can you try that again? In standard English this time, please.
follow the money....follow the money...
If Sandusky has bought them off,,,I no longer have any sympathy for what happened to them. The hell with them.
Now about that gaming license...
Stop tormenting these kids Sandusky!
Do not pass GO!
Proceed directly do jail!
It’s not Sandusky’s money in play. Remember the story about the big money Penn State donors he was pimping out boys to? They’d rather not be dragged into this mess.
Still, he admitted to showering and playing with kids?
That's guilty talk!
Spot on. Can the horse head in bed be far behind?
They will not all back down. Like with the priest scandals, there will be some who stand tall on principles, because they do not want to see this happen to other boys.
Amazing! 2002 attack never happened. Perverts Lawyer miraculously gets the boys name and talks to him and omg he told the perverts shark it never happened. NBC is disgusting for being a party to this.
...The 23-page grand jury report, in fact, credits him (Paterno) with going to Curley with one of the most serious charges against Sandusky brought by a graduate assistant coach who in March 2002 told Paterno he’d seen the older assistant sexually assaulting a naked boy who appeared to be about 10 years old in the shower in Penn State’s Lasch Football Building.......
So EVERYONE is lying EXCEPT the PERVERT.
The DA who disappeared declined to prosecute. So may of you lynch mob advocates are who disappeared him?
So sorry I made prosecute “prosecutor” and sorry that you were not able to take time out from spreading false rumors and forming your lynch mob and figure out that small typo.
Are you a member of the Sandusky family?
You better get the lynch mob rolling and hang some folks before anyone has a chance to defend themselves in court.
It's already happened. Unfortunately the public doing desperate things are the OWS crazies. The average citizen will continue to accept the ever increasing control of their rulers.
Hmmm...there is an adopted son named Jon Sandusky. He just resigned from his football coaching job!
The entire UN is involved!!!!!!!And the United Federation of Planets too!!!!!
The latest is that he has changed his mind and is staying with the Browns. He’s not a coach, he’s in the office.
I don’t know what the assistant coach witnessed. I know the following:
1. At some point Sandusky was reported to authorities and the DA declined to prosecute him in 1998.
2. A grand jury just indicted Sandusky on multiple charges.
3. The grand jury report says a PSU then graduate assistant testified he witnessed Sandusky and a kid in the shower of the PSU locker room.
4. No witness including the then graduate assistant has been cross examined by the defense yet.
So excuse me if I do not participate in the witch burning.
