Teenager who kick-started Sandusky child rape investigation 'ready' to testify

The alleged victim whose allegations triggered the criminal investigation into Jerry Sandusky is expected to take the stand Tuesday in the former Penn State assistant football coach's child rape trial, kicking off the second day of testimony in the high-profile case.

Michael Boni, a lawyer for the person identified in court documents as Victim 1, told CNN on Monday night his client is "ready to go."

The grand jury report cited evidence that Sandusky, who met the boy when he was 11 or 12 years old, "indecently fondled Victim 1 on a number of occasions, performed oral sex on Victim 1 on a number of occasions and had Victim 1 perform oral sex on him on at least one occasion."

The teenager, who transferred schools amid the fallout from the Sandusky investigation, graduated from his new high school this past weekend, according to Boni. He is contemplating scholarship offers from colleges, the lawyer adds.
