ABC has landed an interview with the young man whose allegations led to the Penn State scandal and Jerry Sandusky’s criminal conviction.
Michael Boni, who is the attorney for the teenager called Victim 1 in court papers, announced Wednesday that his client will give his first interview to ABC.
The young man also has a book coming out this fall.
Victim 1 first met Sandusky about eight years ago at age 11 while attending a camp sponsored by The Second Mile, a charity of Sandusky’s, according to his lawsuit against Penn State. He drew the man’s attention, spending night at his State College home and attending professional sports events.
The airdate of the interview has not yet been announced.
Sandusky faced accusation of fondling the victims and performing oral sex on him on several occasions over several years. He was found guilty on 45 charges of sexual abuse of 10 boys, some off campus, in June. The 68 year old, who is already jailed, will likely spend the rest of his days in prison.
Sandusky did not testify at the trial, but has maintained his innocence. He acknowledged showering with boys, but did not admit to molesting them. Dottie Sandusky, Jerry’s wife, testified she never saw her husband do anything inappropriate with young men brought into their home.
