Mother of alleged victim says her son is afraid Sandusky may go free

The mother of one of Jerry Sandusky's alleged victims - the first to come forward in the case - said her son is afraid the former Penn State coach might go free.

The son, who is identified as Victim 1 in a report issued by a grand jury, watched an NBC interview with Sandusky this week and cried, the mother told CNN on Wednesday.

"I said, 'Well, why did you cry?' And he said, 'Because I'm afraid that he might go free,' " said the woman, whose face and voice were altered to protect her - and by extension her son's - identity.

    And they have the numbers growing in this each day. He is not the only one. I hope you all band together, don't feel ashamed. Expose the raypes and the man who hurt you. You all have nothing to hide, but he will, because he knows it was wrong. All the victims shine on. You matter. Your life matters.

    Innocent until proven guilty maan. Or thats the way it should be. How do we know the kids arent just making this up? Plus the turd that claims he saw it happen keeps changing his story.

      Read the grand jury report, which is a finding of fact by the grand jury. There are multiple eyewitnesses, two high schools banned him from campus due to inappropriate behavior, and incredibly similar testimony regarding his actions from multiple victims.

    The red haired coach changed his story. He is now saying he saw the attack, stopped it, then called the police. In the grand jury statement he said he didnt do this. Said he just witnessed the alleged attack then left, later telling Joe Paterno about it. Honestly, I think Sandusky is 100 percent guilty and should spend the rest of his life behind bars. He just hasnt been found guilty yet. If by some slim chance he didnt do it, the media has already ruined his and Joe Paternos reputation.

    Years ago kids did this to some family ran daycare workers. They were found guilty and ruined. Later the kids said they made it up. Anyone who harms a kid is a monster-they just need to be sure it really happened.

    Morning gung. I think they tried to save the reputation of the school, at the expense of the childrens' safety.
