Victim 1 in Sandusky Case Files Lawsuit Against Penn State
A victim of former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky has filed a lawsuit against Penn State, several media outlets are reporting.
The suit, filed Friday in Philadelphia on behalf of Victim 1, says the university deliberately concealed and misrepresented his serial sexual abuse of young boys.
"We look forward to picking up where the Freeh Report left off," attorney Slade McLaughlin, who is representing Victim 1, told Reuters.
"We want to uncover how and why such heinous acts could have been perpetrated on so many innocent child victims for so long. The public, in general, and our client, in particular, are entitled to answers to these important questions."
Penn State spokesman Dave La Torre said the university could not comment on pending lawsuits but takes the matter seriously.
Sandusky was convicted on 45 of 48 counts related to sexual abuse of 10 boys over a 15-year period in June. He is awaiting sentencing.
