Jerry Sandusky Speaks: I Am Not a Monster

by at . Comments

A few weeks after his first public statements since his arrest on sexual abuse charges - in which he admitted to showering with boys, but rejected any notion that he's a pedophile - former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky has spoken out again.

With 40 charges already filed against him, and with a new accuser coming forth this week, Sandusky told The New York Times:

"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 disgraced ex-coach will be in court on December 13 for a preliminary hearing, as he's currently charged with molesting eight kids over a 15-year period.

Sandusky told the newspaper that Joe Paterno - who was fired in the wake of this scandal - never said a word to him about the allegations. He also tried to clarify one of his responses in an interview with Bob Costas (above), as Sandusky initially stammered when asked whether or not he was "attracted to underage boys."

To The Times in this case, Sandusky said:

"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?"

Statements such as that don't exactly help clear Sandusky's name - seriously, the guy can't just answer "no" when asked if he's attracted to children - but he says this is all an instance of his actions being misunderstood and misinterpreted:

“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.”

@ Webster Phreaky. Nay! That freak is too oppressed and he likes to keep his dirty little secret to himself, until someone got tired of hiding his sick fetish and had the courage to tell about his web of deceit. So more than likely, he's a republican. But you would like to think that republicans are incapable of being that nasty though, right?! But some of y'all,...I mean, them are!!! It just that republicans tend to be less honest about what they do in private than democrats are and for whatever reasons. Which is why republicans are considered conservatives, whereas, democrats are considered liberals. But a lot of republicans are freaks as well. Oh,...why...are you a republican too?! Webster Phreaky

Oh my God! I just thought of something! I wonder if that creep is married and/or has children of his own?! If he does have children, God only knows. But believe it or not, most child molesters don't molest their own children. Let's hope that is the case for Sandusky, if he has children. If Sandusky has children and he did molest them, it's possible that his children is in a denial mode. After all, his children would want to protect 'dear old dad' from public humiliation! But we all know that it is too late!

Thank God! That creep has been rearrested! The sick freak. The reason why most convicts hates sexual predators, especially child molesters, is because most convicts are victims of physical and/or sexual abuse themselves. Sandusky better hope he don't meet any of his victims in prison. Chow (pun intended)! Because dog food is what he will become if he is locked up with the majority of convicts. But because Sandusky is considered prominent, the system will more than likely keep him away from the prison's main stream population. But the keys to his prison cell needs to be destroyed, eliminated, become obsolete, or something! He's an animal. I just gave him far too much credit. He's worse than an animal!

I caught the live Today show and was utterly dismayed when he paused before answering, are you attracted to boys. It sickens me and we all know that other adults were involved. Turning the other cheek does not make one innocent. Shutting down the football program would be a massive step. I do agree though. It may take that to send the clear message this will not be tolerated ever!!!!

@Marie I agree with you. The punishments are never strict enough. Jerry needs to know while attemptibg to claim his innocence, denying all the allegations, and accusing EVERYONE of lying. His judgment day will come and there is no better justice than facing your accusers and the boys facing THE MONSTER our parents told us about in our bed time stories.

So Sandusky's favorite two groups are kids and the elderly. But gee, he didn't horse around in the showers with the elderly, did he? Did he give gifts to the elderly? Wait a minute...I don't think he gave gifts to girls, did he? The more I think about it, the more it seems like he was into boys.

In a straight world Jerry, we don't have Gay sex to make babies--we have sex with a penis and a vagina to make babies.
