Jerry Sandusky has given another interview that doesn’t exactly help his case. Sandusky is facing 40 charges of sexual abuse and is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 13 for a preliminary hearing. Weeks ago he gave a phone interview where he hesitated to deny that he is sexually attracted to young boys. Yesterday he spoke with The New York Times about his child sex abuse scandal that has tarnished Penn State’s legacy.
Sandusky said: “These allegations are false, I didn’t do those things. I’m not the monster everyone made me out to be. I didn’t engage in sexual acts.”
The former coach says that Joe Paterno never said a word to him about the allegations.
He continued: “I enjoy spending time with young people. I enjoy spending time with people. I mean, my two favorite groups are the elderly and the young. The young because they don’t think about what they say and the old because they don’t care, you know?”
Sandusky feels that we’ve got it all wrong.
“They’ve taken everything that I ever did for any young person and twisted it to say that my motives were sexual or whatever. I had kid after kid after kid who might say I was a father figure. And they just twisted that all.”
