First lawsuit filed against former Penn State coach Sandusky
A 29-year-old man has filed the first lawsuit against former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky Wednesday afternoon, according to the Associated Press.
The man, identified as “John Doe A,” is alleges that Sandusky sexually abused him more than 100 times while he was a minor.
The victim claims in the lawsuit that he was abused from ages 10 to 14 by Sandusky at a variety of places, including a Penn State locker room, trips to Philadelphia and a bowl game, between 1992 to 1996.
The filing also mentioned that Sandusky gave the plaintiff “gifts, travel, and privileges” while he attended The Second Mile camp, the organization Sandusky started for underprivileged children.
Sandusky was charged in early November with abusing eight boys over 15 years, some allegedly occurring on Penn State’s campus. “John Doe A” was not among those eight victims, though he filed a police report on Tuesday.
The 67-year-old Sandusky is out on $100,000 bail and is still claiming his innocence.
