Jerry Sandusky Victim's Mother Steps Forward For Interview

The mother of one of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky’s alleged victims (the boy who is “Victim 1” in the grand jury document) has done an interview with George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America,” which you can watch here. She describes an awful situation in which her son is too embarrassed to tell her directly what Sandusky is doing to him.

“I think it was a lot of embarrassment. He was letting me hints to figure it out, and I did eventually figure it out.”

Later, her son told her he had been confused.

“I had said, ‘You know, maybe we should have come to this conclusion earlier — you should have told me,’” the mother, whose name is being withheld, said she told her son. “He was like, ‘Well, I didn’t know what to do … you just can’t tell Jerry no.’”

Near the end of the interview, she says she wants Sandusky to be “locked up.”
