One of Jerry Sandusky‘s six adopted children, 33-year-old Matt Sandusky, has come forth as one of his father’s victims. Lawyers for Matt confirmed the news yesterday and that he is prepared to testify.
Attorneys Andrew Shubin and Justine Andronici said in the statement:
“During the trial, Matt Sandusky contacted us and requested our advice and assistance in arranging a meeting with prosecutors to disclose for the first time in this case that he is a victim of Jerry Sandusky’s abuse.”
“At Matt’s request, we immediately arranged a meeting between him and the prosecutors and investigators. This has been an extremely painful experience for Matt and he has asked us to convey his request that the media respect his privacy. There will be no further comment.”
Matt Sandusky’s life has been chronicled throughout his father’s book (Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story) and time in the spotlight. Just before he became a foster child to Dottie and Jerry Sandusky in 1995, he was in juvenile detention for arson.
