A bombshell revelation in the continued child sex abuse trial — Jerry’s adopted son Matt Sandusky said he was willing to come forward and testify he was a victim of sexual abuse.
As the jury continues to deliberate former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky‘s sexual abuse trial, a new report has surfaced that his adopted son Matt Sandusky was prepared to say he was sexually abused too.
Matt had previously denied being abused but it now he seems willing to step forward.
His lawyers made the following statement: “Matt Sandusky, one of Jerry Sandusky’s adopted children, asked us to confirm with you … that he was prepared to testify truthfully as a commonwealth witness,” said the statement issued by lawyers Andrew Shubin and Justine Andronici.
According to ABC News, Matt is one of six children Jerry and his wife adopted. Matt had supported his father even though his birth mother Debra Long gave testimony before a grand jury that her son was upset about staying with Jerry.
Matt attempted suicide several months after moving in with Jerry in 1995.
In addition, Matt’s wife got an order of protection on behalf of their children against Jerry.
