Matt Sandusky, through his attorney Andrew Shubin, said that he met with prosecutors this week to say for the first time that he is a molestation victim of Jerry Sandusky, his adopted father. Matt, 33, was adopted by Jerry and Dottie Sandusky as an adult, after going to live with the family as a foster child.
He has denied ever being abused by his adopted father until now. “This has been an extremely painful experience for Matt and he has asked us to convey his request that the media respect his privacy. There will be no further comment,” Shubin said in a statement.
Matt Sandusky would have offered to testify against the former Penn State assistant coach, according to Shubin.
UPDATE: NBC News now reports that Jerry Sandusky did not testify because the prosecution threatened to use Matt Sandusky as a witness if he did.
