Mother of alleged Jerry Sandusky victim speaks out about incident
In an exclusive television interview with ABC News, the mother of “Victim 1,” one of eight victims named in the indictment that led to Jerry Sandusky's arrest, spoke about how she learned about what was happening. The son started by asking his mother how to look up information on sex offenders. “[I] proceeded to ask him if there was something he needed to tell me, if there was something going on … it wasn't 'til a month later when he indicated he was uncomfortable with leaving the school with him, and [Sandusky] pulling him out of classes at school,” she said. The mother, whose name was withheld, said that her son had difficulty bringing up the incidents, and even after he did, the full thrust of what Sandusky did wasn't made clear until the recent indictment was released. ”I had said, 'You know, maybe we should have come to this conclusion earlier — you should have told me,'” the mother said she told her son. “He was like, 'Well, I didn't know what to do … you just can't tell Jerry no.'” Unbelievable. (Edit: As noted in comments below, the Patriot-News had an interview with this mother, and a second one, in print a couple of days ago. ABC News does call their interview “exclusive,” but it’s likely an exclusive TELEVISION interview.) source
