Penn State Scandal: Jerry Sandusky Allegedly Wrote 'Intimate Love Letters' To Victims

Former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who is facing 52 counts of child molestation charges, allegedly wrote "creepy" love letters to several victims, according to an ABC News report released on Tuesday.

Eight of those letters, written from Sandusky to the accuser, referred to as Victim 4, will be read during testimony when the three-week trial begins on Monday in Centre County. More from ABC:

The letters, which were allegedly written in Sandusky's own handwriting, are expected to corroborate the testimony of the man known as Victim 4, now 28 years old, who met the coach through Sandusky's charity, the Second Mile. The victim's attorney won't talk about the letter, but sources describe the letters as "creepy" and note that one was written in the third person includes a lewd title and is a love story between a boy and a man.

Jury selection for the case began on Tuesday.
