Sandusky's Son Now Admits Father Molested Him
CNN ^

Posted on 06/21/2012 2:42:10 PM PDT by CWSNTEXAS

Matt Sandusky, one of Jerry Sandusky's adopted children, has said that he was molested by the former Penn State defensive coordinator, according to a statement from his lawyers.

The allegation comes as Sandusky is awaiting the verdict in his child rape trial. Matt Sandusky, who has defended his father as he faced child rape charges, said through his attorneys Andrew Shubin and Justine Andronici that he met with prosecutors this week to tell them he was a victim for the first time.

"During the trial, Matt Sandusky contacted us and requested our advice and assistance in arranging a meeting with prosecutors to disclose for the first time in this case that he is a victim of Jerry Sandusky’s abuse," Matt Sandusky's lawyers said in a statement obtained by InSession. "At Matt’s request, we immediately arranged a meeting between him and the prosecutors and investigators."

How horribly sad. All those victims, then you have, arguably, a crazy loon who perpetrated them, but my real question is, WTF was the wife thinking? She might be as bad as her husband, and arguably worse.

Horrifically sad, but completely unsurprising.

Did anybody think he went out and adopted a boy for noble reasons?

In the million-to-one chance Sandusky beats the charges, he can be charged with the crimes against his son, and any other of the likely dozens of victims who've yet to step forward.

You'd think this dirtbag would at least have the decency to hang himself at this point.

This might explain why Sandusky’s wife flashed that strange look at him during her testimony earlier in the week. Sandusky appeared to look away in shame.

OTOH, in a remarkable number of cases of sexual and physical child abuse, one or more of the children are targeted and the rest are not mistreated. The targets function as scapegoats for the family.

Very sad stuff.

Bears repeating. I seem to recall a terrible child abuse case in New York -- Lisa Steinberg -- in which the father beat the mother terribly and eventually killed the child; yet the judge sentenced the mother as complicit in the abuse, even though she was virtually a tortured prisoner.

I wonder how many jewels and fur coats Mrs Sandusky sported to her husband's events?

She would never get a stiff sentence. Recall that the woman who kidnapped that girl in the 1980s and helped her husband to rape the kidnap victim and her daughters didn't get nearly the punishment the man got. And SHE procured the child.

With 9 outta 12 having CLOSE ties to the University, I’m afraid the fix is in already. Hopefully the jurors know that letting JS get away with this would be another MAJOR black eye to the University. The outcome would be the exact opposite, if their desire is to protect the University.

Now I’ve been following this case and although the word “pedophile” has been used, I have never seen the word “homosexual” used to describe Sandusky. Why is that? He never was accused of molesting little girls; just boys. He has been a practicing homosexual specializing in young boys, the way I see it.

Same thing with pedophile priests. They are never labelled as “gay”, although what they do is paractice homosexual sex on minors.

I read something on PennLive.com that said Sandusky started on these kids at about 12 years of age and dropped them at about 15.

Sandusky’s son turned 15 the same year the first victim (chronologically) was molested.

Give a kid to a homosexual pedophile, and its a certainty that kid will be molested. The only thing surprising about this is that the story took so long to come out. Too bad public torture has gone out of style. Jerry Sandusky needs to be strung up by his testicles until dead.

He Killed his mentor and National hero, Joe Paterno, and Sandusky is the ultimate Coward and PUSS! Just a disgusting Homosexual who believes Men are allowed to pervert mere Children! Read their pamphlets before You decide to flame ME! They are PERVERTS!

Thanks for finding that. I was thinking maybe dreamed it or something.

Here is the excerpt:

Overall, Dottie’s testimony was short and concise. But there was one surprising moment. During a seconds-long break, when prosecutors were shuffling through documents, she looked at her husband and made a funny face. He immediately turned away.

The PC narrative is that homosexuality is “normal.” Any evidence to the contrary is not welcome.

Queers are a protected species, not only are we supposed to accept them as normal but celebrate their perversion.

A presidential candidate with a big "R" behind his name thinks that queer adoption is fine as long as the perverts "love each other", this closeted queer (Sandusky) molested his adopted son, it doesn't get much sicker than that.

Matt's the adopted son whose brother-in-law was Ray Gricar, the Centre County DA who didn't prosecute the 'I'm gonna squeeze your guts out' shower incident in 1998. Gricar went missing on April 15, 2005 and has never been found.

In Gricar's defense, there doesn't appear to have been any touching of genitals in the case he declined to prosecute. He would have been prosecuting an active Penn State coach (with over 30 years' tenure as a coach and over 20 years' tenure as the defensive coordinator), who was famous for The Second Mile, in front of a Happy Valley Jury, for showering with a boy.

Well, that and the fact that Paterno was an 85 year old man with terminal cancer.

Not detracting from Sandusky's atrocities but I don't believe he had a lot to do with Paterno's death.

Da Bilge Troll: I have to assume the prosecutors decided it wasn't necessary.

My understanding is that the adopted son Matt, after long denying any abuse took place or that he witnessed any and up until recently seemingly supporting his adoptive father; only came forward this week. He and his attorneys only met with prosecutors this week perhaps after the prosecution rested their case so perhaps there was no time or ability to investigate, vet and introduce this as new evidence.

This could also explain the last minute decision not to have Sandusky testify on his own behalf. If I understand correctly, and I could be wrong, but on cross examination the prosecution could have introduced him as a rebuttal witness. This would explain what I read reported about how pale and visibly shaken Sandusky looked after coming out of the judge’s chamber just before he was to have testified. I’m guessing the prosecution asked the judge if the son could be called as a rebuttal witness and the judge ruled it would be allowed – hence the defenses’ decision to not allow Sandusky to testify.

ColdOne: What if the unthinkable happens and they find him not guilty or a hung jury, could they try to charge him for his son Matt?

Yes they can. Regardless of the jury’s verdict; guilty, innocent or unable to reach a verdict (hung jury), the Commonwealth can file brand new charges based on the son’s allegations of abuse since it was not part of the first trial. If (and I really hope that doesn’t happen) Sandusky is acquitted on all charges, he can be charged again on the new charge as double jeopardy doesn’t apply. Think of it this way, say you are arrested and charged with armed bank robbery of the ABC bank that took place on April 1st 2004. You go to trial and are acquitted for lack of evidence (or a really stupid jury assuming you were guilty). Then you are arrested again for the armed robbery of the XYZ bank on April 1st of 2005; brand new charges, brand new crime, brand new trial. The downside is, IIRC, neither the prosecution or the defense could not call into evidence any testimony or evidence from the first trial for which you were acquitted.

This guy Sandusky is a classic prototype pedophile--textbook illustration--it has been obvious from the start. For so many years he has been living rent free in the pedophile version of hog heaven, with the aid and comfort of his twisted sickie wife.
