Victim 1 details the sexual abuse in Jerry Sandusky case

The man, known only as Victim 1, testified today in the sexual abuse case against Jerry Sandusky.

In the Jerry Sandusky case, Tuesday featured Victim 1 taking the stand, detailing the events surrounding his alleged 100 overnight stays at Sandusky’s home and the sexual abuse which took place.

Now an adult at age 18, the man stated he grew up without a father, living only with mother and siblings, met the former Penn State coach at Sandusky’s foundation for needy children, Second Mile.

“At first he would kiss me on the forehead goodnight,” the witness testified. “Then it was kissing me on the cheek, then rubbing my back and cracking my back.”

CNN reported more details: Sandusky’s roaming hands would later move to “rub underneath my shorts,” Victim No. 1 said. The alleged abuse further escalated when Sandusky “put his mouth on my privates. I spaced,” he said. “I didn’t know what to do. Later, the former coach allegedly told him that “it’s your turn,” the man added. “He made me put my mouth on his privates.”

The man’s emotion-filled descriptions kicked off the second day of testimony in the high-profile case.

The boy was eleven or twleve when the abuse began and escalated into regular exchanges of oral sex.

The teenager, who transferred schools amid the fallout from the Sandusky investigation, graduated from his new high school this past weekend, according to his attorney Michael Boni.

The first person to take the stand Monday after opening statements was a now 28-year-old man identified as Victim No. 4. He said that Sandusky routinely had the then-teenage boy perform oral sex on him while the two showered together on the school’s campus and elsewhere

“It would have to be 40 times, at least,” he said, adding that the abuse started when he was 14.
