Jerry Sandusky Accuser Says He Yelled For Help While Being Assaulted, But Sandusky's Wife Didn't Answer

The Harrisburg Patriot-News notices a particularly lurid detail in the new grand jury presentment concerning the two additional Jerry Sandusky victims.

Victim 9 was always, without exception, told to sleep in the basement bedroom. Victim 9 testified that Sandusky specifically told him to stay in the basement unless otherwise directed by Sandusky. He ate meals in the basement and the food would be brought to him by Sandusky …

Sandusky also attempted to engage in anal penetration of Victim 9 on at least sixteen occasions and at times did penetrate him. The victim testified that on at least one occasion he screamed for help, knowing that Sandusky’s wife was upstairs, but no one ever came to help him.

That is genuinely terrifying. You’re going to see a lot of writing about this new grand jury presentment that attempts to stay above the fray by avoiding specifics regarding details like these. But this is ultimately what we’re talking about. Jerry Sandusky allegedly raping a 12-year-old boy, whom he kept stashed away in his basement, while Sandusky’s wife allegedly ignored it.
