Jerry Sandusky Trial: Testimony From Victim 1 Mirrors Earlier Testimony

An 18-year-man known only as Victim 1 took the stand on Tuesday in the Jerry Sandusky trial. It was a gut-wrenching round of testimony from someone who told of being abused by the former Penn State assistant coach for years.

Victim 1 told of how his relationship with Sandusky went from games in the former coach's house to oral sex. The Patriot News describes the defense's cross examination of the witness, who held firm in the face of aggressive questioning.

The events of his relationship with Sandusky mirrored the testimony of Victim 4, who took the stand on Monday.

In addition to the testimony about what happened between himself and Sandusky, Victim 1 also relayed the details of telling his high school counselor about the abuse. The victim and his mother decided to approach the guidance counselor to discuss reporting the incident. The counselor advised against reporting it, telling the boy that Sandusky "wouldn't do something like that."

More alleged victims and others will take the stand as Sandusky's trial continues.
