Monday, Jerry Sandusky took to the airwaves to defend his sullied reputation. During an interview with sports journalist Bob Costas, the former Penn State assistant coach proclaimed he is not a pedophile, but rather “enjoys” being around children.

After the shocking interview, Sandusky’s lawyer defended his client and even insinuated that many of the victims were backing down from their stories.

“They have other people who are saying they saw something, but they don’t have actual people saying, ‘This is what Jerry did to me,’ ” Joe Amendola, Sandusky’s lawyer, said. “We’re working to find those people, and when the time comes, and if we are able to do that, we think this whole case will change dramatically.”

After hearing Sandusky and his lawyer question the allegations, at least one of the victims has resolved to publicly tell his story. Ben Andreozzi, a lawyer for one of the alleged victims, called Sandusky a “coward” and said his client is ready to tell the world exactly what Sandusky did to him.

Andreozzi told the New York Times: “Mr. Sandusky suggested in some of his comments about the victims that maybe people were backing off. My client heard that and has dug in his heels. He is feeling more comfortable about going through with this. The comments maybe backfired. They have caused victims to be more motivated to testify against him.”

Although Sandusky was charged with raping and molesting eight boys, since the story broke, even more victims have decided to speak up. Just this week, the New York Times reported that 10 more victims have come forward to accuse Sandusky of abuse.

Many feel these latest victims are just the tip of the iceberg. Sandusky first started his non-profit sports program, Second Mile, in 1977 and worked with the organization full-time after his retirement from Penn State in 1999. Some feel there could be dozens of victims still out there.

Ben Andreozzi, a lawyer for one of the victims, said, “This is a situation that is only going to grow. When I represent a sexual abuse victim, we start with one or maybe two clients but as the ball gets rolling forward, more victims almost always come forward.”

    so says the dumbass that put his client on the phone and let him talk about “horsing around” (let’s be real, not so codeword for molesting) and taking showers with 10 year old boys. it took Sandusky 17 seconds to answer the question if he was attracted to young boys, he repeated the question as if it was so hard to answer. if you aren’t attracted you would have answered no before the man was even done asking you. this man and his lawyer are effing disgusting as is everyone else involved, and that includes Joe Paterno, i don’t care what anyone else has to say about that. child molesters get away with this crap because they get a slap on a wrist -if that for what they do. i have a feeling this is going to go to Catholic Church level, with hundreds of victims coming forward about Mr. Sandusky.
