Third alleged Sandusky victim testifies
A third alleged victim of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky took the stand Wednesday, swearing under oath that he was sexually abused as a boy by Sandusky, whom he met through the defendant's Second Mile charity. The now 25-year-old recounted an alleged incident in which he and Sandusky were wrestling in the basement recreation center of the charity: "The defendant pinned me to the ground, pulled my shorts down and began performing oral sex on me. I freaked out." The man says that Sandusky stopped after a few minutes, but later threatened that if the boy told anyone, he would never see his family again.
