Mother Of Alleged Victim: Son Is Afraid Sandusky May Walk Free

State College, Pennsylvania – The mother of one of Jerry Sandusky’s alleged victims — the first to come forward in the case — said her son is afraid the former Penn State coach might go free.

The son, who is identified as Victim 1 in a report issued by a grand jury earlier this month, watched an NBC interview with Sandusky this week and cried, his mother told CNN Wednesday.

“I said, ‘Well, why did you cry?’ And he said, ‘Because I’m afraid that he might go free,'” said the woman, whose face and voice were altered to protect her — and by extension her son’s — identity.

Pennsylvania’s attorney general has charged Sandusky with 40 counts in what authorities allege was the sexual abuse of eight boys. In addition, two Penn State officials are charged with failing to inform police of the allegations, and questions have been raised about the university’s response.
