Jerry Sandusky Scandal: Second Mile Attendee Comes Forward With New Details

A special by Anderson Cooper on the Penn State scandal will air at noon on Tuesday, and the Centre Daily Times has some excerpts. It includes an interview with a former Second Mile camp attendee on his interactions with Jerry Sandusky:

Troy Craig: I can remember clearly the first time that I got into the car, in the passenger seat, we were alone in the car, I mean I’m there with him for two seconds before the doors closed and his hand is on my left thigh and it stays there, and stays there the entire car ride, and from my place to campus is about 25 to 30 minutes.

Anderson: What did you think at the time?

Troy Craig: I certainly didn’t make any connection between his hand on my leg and any kind of sexual perversion. That didn’t strike me as something possible between a grown man and a child. I just knew it was uncomfortable, and for me mainly because it made my leg hot. It would be 20 minutes into the car ride and I almost wanted to give him my other leg because it would just stay there and every once in a while it would squeeze, but it didn’t move.

This is hardly the most damning piece of evidence to appear so far, but it certainly doesn’t look particularly good. And as Jason Kirk points out, it’s hard to see what Craig would have to gain by lying about this now.
