Boston Attorney Represents Victim In Jerry Sandusky Case
BOSTON (CBS) – Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach and convicted child sex abuser, was sentenced to at least 30 years in prison Tuesday.
The sentence means Sandusky, who is 68 years old, will be in prison at least until he’s nearly 100.
Boston attorney Mitchell Garabedian, well-known for representing victims of the Boston clergy sex abuse scandal, told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Tuesday that he is representing one of Sandusky’s victims.
Garabedian says the man was a former star football player in Massachusetts who is now in his 40’s and wishes to remain unidentified.
“After he was sexually abused on two separate occasions by Jerry Sandusky, his life spiraled downward and he has recently been released from prison after committing serious crimes,” Garabedian told WBZ.
The man claims he was 16-years-old when he was invited to a Penn State football camp and was molested twice in one week by Sandusky, according to Garabedian.
Garabedian said his client did not testify in the recent trial but is willing to if Sandusky is tried again.
Garabedian is now looking into monetary compensation in a future civil case for his client.
“My client is more interested that Jerry Sandusky spends the rest of his life in jail and hopefully he will be prosecuted once again for additional crimes he committed against children.”
