Reports: Second Civil Lawsuit to Target Sandusky, Penn State, Second Mile
A second civil lawsuit is forthcoming against Jerry Sandusky, Penn State and The Second Mile, several news organizations reported.
The suit is impending, per a notice filed Thursday, The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Associated Press reported.
According to a CBS report, the alleged victim stepping forth in the latest civil action said he was 12 when Sandusky sexually abused him in 2004. He has claimed that Sandusky, a former assistant football coach at Penn State, gave him whiskey before touching him inappropriately, the CBS report notes.
It allegedly happened on the University Park campus, according to the report. The alleged victim in the litigation is not among the 10 mentioned in the criminal charges filed to date by state prosecutors, The Inquirer and AP reporting shows.
In late November, the first civil lawsuit against Sandusky, the university and The Second Mile was filed. The alleged victim in that court action has said that Sandusky molested him more than 100 times.
Multiple civil lawsuits against Sandusky and Penn State are expected, lawyers have said. Criminal and civil filings against him list a total of 12 alleged victims.
