The first victim to come forward and reveal Jerry’s horrific sexual abuse has just written a book called ‘Silent No More: Victim 1’s Fight For Justice Against Jerry Sandusky’ and he wants the world to know what happened to him — read on for his sad new interview.

Jerry Sandusky is now the one who is the prisoner. The former Penn State assistant football coach sexually abused boys for years and now that he is behind bars, his first victim wants to reveal his name — it’s 18-year-old Aaron Fisher.

“Saying sexual abuse has happened was hard,” he tells People. “But I wanted to help people see that it is better to come forward and tell somebody than to be silent.”

Aaron says he was abused for three years by Jerry. But he finally found the strength to tell his mom and his high school.

“I’m happy it’s over,” he says. “Make sure you don’t give up on doing the right thing, because for every time you stay quiet, there’s the person who did something to you, doing it to somebody else. Instead of being a victim, you can be a hero.”
