The Jerry Sandusky trial began yesterday and ‘Victim 4’ took the stand to testify and revealed very graphic, and disturbing details about the relationship he had with Sandusky when he was a young boy.
The alleged victim said Sandusky “treated him like his girlfriend” for more than two years, giving him gifts, and letting him stand on the sidelines at football games, according to MSNBC.com.
At the same time, Victim 4 says he experience more than 40 “very uncomfortable incidents,” from showering together, Sandusky touching his genitals, attempted sexual penetration, and Sandusky putting his hand on his leg every time they were driving in the car.
Victim 4 regrets not coming forward earlier, but when he was a child receiving these gifts he was afraid it would all stop if he told anyone. Sandusky was like a father figure to him, something he did not have. He said:
“This was something good happening. I never had a father figure, and I’m liking everything I’m getting.”
Today, “Victim 1” will testify. We will keep you updated.
