Jerry Sandusky's adopted son, Matt, said through his attorney Thursday that he is also a victim of the former Penn State assistant football coach's sexual abuse. The junior Sandusky said he had considered testifying for the prosecution, and his attorneys even arranged a meeting with him, the prosecutors, and investigators.
