Love letters from Jerry Sandusky to alleged victim reportedly will be read at trial
Jerry Sandusky’s child molestation trial is scheduled to begin on Monday, and a report says the former Penn State football coach will face plenty of damning evidence.
According to ABC News, love letters from Sandusky to the accuser known as “Victim 4” will be read as testimony during the trial. ABC News was told the letters are “creepy” and that “one was written in the third person includes a lewd title and is a love story between a boy and a man.”
Additionally, Victim 4 is expected to be the first witness, and plans to show gifts allegedly given to him by Sandusky in exchange for their sexual relationship. The gifts allegedly include a set of golf clubs.
Victim 4 is the same alleged victim who claims he was sexually abused by Sandusky while on road trips with the football team. In November, San Antonio was investigating raising criminal charges against Sandusky based on his alleged abuse of the boy while in town for the Alamo Bowl.
In another significant decision concerning the trial, the judge decided not to allow the alleged victims to use aliases. Eight of Sandusky’s alleged victims are expected to testify against him. He’s facing 52 counts of child molestation charges.
