On the first day of jury selection in the child molestation trial of former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, ABC News has learned that Sandusky allegedly wrote “creepy” love letters to his victims, eight of whom are set to testify against him.

Intimate love letters allegedly written from Sandusky to the accuser, known as Victim 4, will be read into testimony after the trial begins on Monday, sources close to the case told ABC News. Victim 4, who is expected to be the first witness called to testify against Sandusky, will also show the gifts, including a set of golf clubs, that Sandusky allegedly gave him during their relationship.

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 a story written in the third person.

Ben Andreozzi, the alleged victim’s attorney, did say, “They have evidence to support his allegations, and there’s other evidence that has not been released to the public yet that I think will really resonate with the jury.”
