One of Jerry Sandusky’s alleged victims testified Tuesday that the ex-assistant coach threatened him to try to keep him silent about the sex abuse.The witness, known only as Victim 10, said he’d met Sandusky through the charity “Second Mile” when he was a child living in foster care, CBS News reported. Sandusky started performing oral sex on him when they were wrestling, he said.

“I freaked out. I got nervous. I got scared,” Victim 10, now 25, testified. “He told me that if I told anybody I would never see my family again.”

But, CBS News reported, Victim 10 also testified that Sandusky later told him, “He “said he’ didn’t mean it, and he loved me.”

Sandusky is currently on trial on 52 charges of sexual assault that allegedly occurred with 10 boys during a 15-year period.
