A former Catholic priest who now heads a charity that assists sexual abuse victims said Thursday his group is representing a previously unknown victim of Jerry Sandusky.
Robert Hoatson, co-founder and president of New Jersey-based Road to Recovery Inc., said the man claims he was abused by Sandusky about 25 years ago, when he was 15, visiting for a summer football camp.
The man, now about 40 years old, is currently incarcerated in a Massachusetts state prison for serious crimes, and does not want to be identified, because he fears repercussions in the prison, Hoatson said.
Speaking outside Beaver Stadium, Hoatson said he hopes the man, who is set for release in August, could tell his story then.
He was invited to come to Penn State in the summer for camp to hone his football skill, Hoatson said. He met Jerry Sandusky and his life spiraled out of control from then on. As a result of his meeting with the monster from Happy Valley, Jerry Sandusky, his life is ruined.
Sandusky was convicted in June of meeting young boys through his charity, The Second Mile, as early as 1998, and sexually abusing them, sometimes on the Penn State campus.
The alleged victims allegations, however, occurred sometime in the 1980s. Hoatson said he thinks an investigation into Sanduskys actions should go back even earlier.
Hoatson, a New Jersey resident, was in State College Thursday calling for harsher sanctions and penalties against Penn State.
Sanduskys conviction and the Louis Freeh report, which condemned top university officials for allegedly covering up the abuse, led to the NCAA levying unprecedented sanctions against the university Monday.
Hoatson, however, believes the university should go further, and called on leaders to categorically drop football.
There is no need for it to be played, he said. Its time the university step up and discipline itself. We had a serial pedophile who was protected by a culture and an institution that promoted football.

Former State Penn preezzy Spanier is an additional enabling monster from Gay Valley.
Is he in special protective custody or something in the prison now?
It's my opinion that he should be taken to a central square in Happy Valley or State College, Pa and publicly hanged, with TV cameras and a crowd.
Give him ten days notice.
Failing that, what happens to him in prison is not my concern.
And Schultz and Curley.
And their current goofball president, who as provost granted Sandusky emeritus status against existing policy at the time. Which in turn gave Sandusky access to the locker rooms after he was no longer coaching.
And a host of others.
If you feel the need for exercise, look up the Youtube videos of Penn State football players, Bill O’brien the new head coach, and other Penn State supporters, rattling on about their love and support for good ole PS. You’ll get great exercise because you’ll then go out at beat the side of your garage with your bare fists because of your rage at their stupidity and callousness. (The Penn State football players look embarrassed despite a rambling statement about how they’ll live and die for the school.)
So the most famous gay in the country now is a child predator...
California just past a law students must be taught about gays I wonder if this will be included and next gay pride parade, the most famous gay must be respected.

Well, it's a good thing he didn't provide any information to narrow it down any... /s
The university's "human shields".
“California just past a law students must be taught about gays”
You raise a good point, were I a teacher in the California public schools I’d do a nice unit on the evils homosexuals have inflicted on society.
