A new, anonymous accuser has stepped forward and released a statement that alleges prolonged abuse at the hands of Jerry Sandusky.
In a letter, the man – referred to at the moment as John Doe, and not one of the eight victims named in the grand jury report that led to an indictment of the former Penn State defensive coordinator on 40 counts of sexual abuse – says he met Sandusky through his Second Mile charity and cites over 100 inappropriate incidents between 1992 and 1996.
“I don’t want other kids to be hurt and abused by Jerry Sandusky or anybody like Penn State to allow people like him to do it—rape kids!” the statement reads. “I never told anybody what he did to me over 100 times at all kinds of places until the newspapers reported that he had abused other kids and the people at Penn State and Second Mile didn’t do the things they should have to protect me and the other kids.”
This alleged victim is now 29 years old, says Sandusky threatened him with violence if he ever came forward and has filed a lawsuit against the disgraced ex coach.
