One day in, and the trial of former Penn State assistant head coach Jerry Sandusky has already been impossibly lurid. Amid all the allegations about sexual abuse, though, so-called “Victim 4” added a new wrinkle to the case on Monday.
Frmr. #PSU coach Tom Bradley once stayed in the shower until Sandusky and Alleged Victim 4 left. No. 4 thinks the coach was suspicious.
Alleged victim 4 said Tom Bradley came into shower and saw #Sandusky and boy, said he thought Bradley was suspicious b/c he stayed to chat.
Bradley, who took over as interim head coach once Joe Paterno was dismissed late last season, has never been implicated in the scandal. Victim 4’s testimony doesn’t prove he was involved with anything, and it could certainly be that Bradley genuinely had to say something to Sandusky, or that he knew nothing of Sandusky’s alleged behavior and merely thought that seeing Sandusky in the shower with a boy was a little bit odd. Nonetheless, what Victim 4 said is certainly not anything I’d ever want someone to say in public about me. We’re probably going to see lots of high-profile Penn State folks called into question in the next few weeks.
