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.

    @gung- are you sure yor gung? Agreement? When it comes to children I do not think there is any tolerance of hurting children. Children are the least of us and should be protected the most.
