Jerry Sandusky trial: Alleged victim says he was threatened with never seeing his family again if he told of abuse
By CHARLES THOMPSON, The Patriot-News
Published: Thursday, June 14, 2012, 4:00 AM

BELLEFONTE — A recurring pattern of alleged abuse is emerging in the Jerry Sandusky trial.
Three alleged victims testified Wednesday, adding new brushstrokes to an ever-darkening portrait of Sandusky as a local hero with a dangerous double life.

As told by two of the accusers, Victim 5 and Victim 7, the progression from introduction to molestation was strikingly similar to the earlier testimony of other alleged victims. It was almost as if only the names and personal circumstances had changed.

Bellefonte has a different look as Day 4 of Jerry Sandusky trial begins
June 14, 2012

BELLEFONTE — The Centre County Courthouse has a different look today for day four of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse trial.

The large media trucks that had lined Allegheny Street in front of the courthouse have been moved to make way for the Bellefonte Cruise car expo, which begins Friday.

Preparations for the cruise, including the building of a stage in front of the courthouse, are to begin today.

But that doesn't mean the media presence has diminished.

In Penn State trial, childhood memories of abuse prompt tears, angst
June 14, 2012

BELLEFONTE, Pa. — Jurors in the Jerry Sandusky trial are hearing from witnesses who’ve struggled at times to recount the sexual abuses they say happened to them as children, a personally painful but legally necessary outpouring.

While the accusers’ testimony is helping to build a case for the prosecution, it also offers Sandusky’s defense the opportunity to raise questions about their motivations and to note inconsistencies in their stories in an effort to build reasonable doubt in the jurors’ minds.

During cross-examination, a legal tradition enshrined in the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution, the testimony is especially raw.

“Very often the sentiments are on the side of the victims,” said Robert Weisberg, a criminal law expert who teaches at Stanford University. “But constitutionally, the sentiments are on the side of the defendant.”

JANE VELEZ-MITCHELL
Casey Anthony Speaks Out
Aired June 13, 2012 - 19:00   ET
THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

 ::snipping2::
And a parade of accusers say Jerry Sandusky shattered their lives as he allegedly forced them into sex. Now new claims surface that Sandusky engaged in bizarre rituals before initiating the alleged molestation. We`ll take you inside court.
 ::snipping2::
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: More heart wrenching testimony in the sex abuse trial of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The grand jury report is filled with details from each accuser alleging how and when Sandusky allegedly victimized them.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The former Penn State assistant football coach is charged with sexually abusing ten boys over a 15-year period. He faces 52 counts.

JEAN CASAREZ, "IN SESSION" CORRESPONDENT: The report details accusations that Sandusky would take his hands and place them on their thighs as they were driving in the car. That he would tickle them and blow on their stomachs at bedtime, would shower naked with them, and would rape them.

(END VIDEO CLIP)
VELEZ-MITCHELL: Disturbing, graphic day in court. Three young victims describe their alleged sexual abuse, torment at the hands of famous Penn State assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky. Sandusky charged with 52 charges of abuse of 10 boys, over 15 years today in court. Unbelievable.

He faced victims number ten, seven, five; these young men describing years of sick abuse and sick rituals that he used when they were boys before allegedly attacking them. One accuser said Sandusky threatened, quote, "That if anybody were told, he would never see his family again." "I would never see my family again if I spoke of what was going on." Imagine that to a little boy.

The jurors finally listening to the interview Jerry Sandusky gave right after he was arrested when he admitted to horsing around and showering with boys. This, from NBC.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JERRY SANDUSKY, FORMER PENN STATE ASSISTANT COACH: I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them. And I have touched their leg without intent of sexual contact.

(END VIDEO CLIP)
VELEZ-MITCHELL: I always thought that was so creepy. And Beth Karas, "In Session" correspondent, you were in court today, I understand some of the jurors when they heard some of Sandusky`s comments seemed quite creeped out as well.

BETH KARAS, "IN SESSION" CORRESPONDENT: Let me tell you, Jane, when that was played, we saw just some still photos on the screen. You didn`t see the video that we watched when we played because it was kind of meaningless. It was the audio played for the jury.

One of the men on the jury, an older man, who sort of has a Mr. Rogers look -- he had a little red cardigan on and a white shirt -- sat with his arms crossed in a hostile position over his chest like that listening. And then as soon as the tape was over, arms uncrossed and he was taking notes.

Now, interpret what you want from that, but it is a hostile position. And it was not, you know -- it was compelling what we were listening to. And presumably these jurors are hearing it for the first time. It wasn`t particularly helpful to Sandusky to hear him faltering while he`s answering that question, are you sexually attracted to boys.

One would expect if he`s not to say, no, they`re misinterpreting things I was doing to them. No, instead it was like, "Am I sexually attracted to them," the pauses that we hear and have heard over and over.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Yes. Well, Rachael bell, forensic clinical therapist, author of "Sexual Obsessions Gone Wrong" doesn`t that dove tail with the whole idea that people who are -- and I`m not convicting him, he`s going to be judged by a jury of his so-called peers, half of them have connections to Penn State, by the way -- but isn`t that the way pedophiles, in general, think that they aren`t doing anything wrong that`s why they have a man/boy love association where they basically regard this is an alternate lifestyle?

RACHAEL BELL, FORENSIC CLINICAL THERAPIST: That`s correct, Jane. A lot of them believe that, you know, if it feels good, it can`t be wrong. Which we know is, you know, not true.

I think what you`re seeing here is also, you know, you had brought up earlier about the blowing on the stomach, which I found very interesting. This is typical ritualistic behavior. Ritualistic behavior is related to OCD, which has been linked with pedophilic behavior. So I also found that interesting during the testimony.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Let me explain what you`re talking about. Some of the victims, the alleged victims, testified that Jerry Sandusky, the white haired guy you`re looking at there, had rituals that he would use before these alleged attacks which were very graphic.

In fact, one boy who`s not even 11 testified that he didn`t understand that Jerry was aroused because he was too young to know the facts of life. But apparently he allegedly blew on their stomachs and made them wear mesh shorts. Why do you think, Rachael, those particular rituals?

BELL: Ok. Well, you know, it`s really unclear. I can`t tell you what he was thinking at the moment. But the behavior he was showing was indicative of grooming behavior, which is also typical of pedophilic -- you know, pedophiles. He clearly was using a lot of coercion, manipulative behaviors, classic textbook pedophile-like behavior, which is definitely going to work against him.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, I`m just -- sorry, I just think about some of these things and it just upsets me so much. I think the blowing on the stomach is a way of trying to reassure -- this is what parents do to kids. They blow on their little belly buttons. And I think that was his way of trying to seduce the kids in thinking, "I`m a parental figure, I`m not doing anything wrong, I`m just going to treat you like a little child."

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)
BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MIKE BONI, ATTORNEY FOR VICTIM NUMBER ONE: You saw today firsthand the pain that a victim of sexual abuse undergoes. The number of times he or she has to tell his or her story and how painful each account is and then finally culminating in a trial that the world is watching, it`s beyond torture.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: The jurors listen to the alleged victims and Jerry Sandusky`s news interviews right after his arrest when he said, "Yes, I am attracted to young people", astoundingly. Listen to this from NBC.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SANDUSKY: If I say "No, I`m not attracted to boys," that`s not the truth because I`m attracted to young people -- boys, girls --

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes, but not sexually. You`re attracted because you enjoy spending time.

SANDUSKY: Right. I enjoy -- that`s what I was trying to say -- I enjoy spending time with young people. I enjoy spending time with people.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Now, Lisa Bloom, attorney, they`ve hinted that he might take the stand. Given that performance, that sounds like a spectacularly bad idea.

BLOOM: I can`t believe he gave any interviews. I can`t believe his attorney allowed him or maybe his attorney prohibited it and he said, "I`m going to do it anyway."

I mean Jane that is really shocking for him to sort of stare off into space and say yes, I`m attracted to young boys and girls. Then his attorney had to jump in and say, "You know, you don`t mean that in a spectacular way though?" "Oh, right, yes. I don`t mean that in a sexual way."

Wow. What a spectacular confession that is, in my view.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Yes, I think it is. Almost a confession -- very good way to put it.

Oh my gosh.

You know, evil does not look like it does in the movies.

Accuser: Sandusky called himself a 'ticklemonster' in 1998 PSU shower incident
June 14, 2012

 ::snipping2::
Local investigators, in consultation with the Centre County district attorney's office at the time, had the boy's mother summon Sandusky twice to her home for separate conversations. Investigators listened secretly as the mother and Sandusky spoke, Ron Schreffler, a former university police investigator, testified this morning.

In the second exchange with the boy's mother, Sandusky "made the statement: ‘I wish I could ask for forgiveness. I know I will not get it from you. I wish I were dead,'" Schreffler testified.

Schreffler said he heard the statement himself. The state Department of Welfare and county Children and Youth Services handled the case at various times, Schreffler said.

No charges were filed until last year, part of the 52-count case against Sandusky. Ray Gricar, who has since disappeared as a missing person, was the county district attorney at the time.

Under police questioning in 1998, Schreffler said today, Sandusky reported in an interview that he had showered with other boys. He seemed to suggest he did not see anything wrong with that, Schreffler said.

Schreffler said he advised Sandusky it would not be prudent to keep showering with boys.

"Did he appear to understand what you were saying?" state prosecutor Joseph McGettigan asked.

"Yes, sir," Schreffler said. " ... I think he stated something to the effect - he used the term ‘bad judgment.'"

Schreffler said Sandusky said "he would not do it again."
Facing cross-examination today from Sandusky's lead attorney, Joseph Amendola, "Victim 6" said he maintained contact with Sandusky and his wife, Dottie, over the years since 1998. He would visit their home, where Jerry Sandusky would supply him with football tickets, the man said.
As recently as last year, he testified, he shared a meal with the Sanduskys.

His mother was not pleased with the ongoing contact, he said.

Asked by Amendola if he ever thought of Sandusky as a father figure, "Victim 6" replied: "I'm not sure."

Early on, he said, when his mother became concerned over the 1998 shower incident, he "didn't want to get (Sandusky) in trouble."

"I still wanted to hang out with him and go to (football) games," the man said. He said Sandusky told him he had a home computer, then still a novelty.

Sandusky said the young man could come over, sit in Sandusky's lap and get on the computer, he testified. "I wanted to do that" and to have a friendship with the iconic coach.

Text messages cited by Amendola appeared to support that point.

"Hey, Jerry - just wanted to wish you a happy Fathers' Day," reads a text message that "Victim 6" said he sent in 2009. "Great things are yet to come."

But in 2011, the man testified, a state police officer contacted him and indicated Sandusky was under investigation. The officer asked him to think about the 1998 shower incident again, the man said.

"As I started to think about it, as I started to go over it in my mind, I quickly realized my perception changed - thinking about it as an adult as opposed to an 11-year-old. ... That was inappropriate, what had happened."

He said he had put the shower incident aside in his mind.

‘Excited utterance’ permissible as evidence
By Greg Bock
June 14, 2012

BELLEFONTE - After hearing arguments from prosecutors and Jerry Sandusky's defense team, Senior Judge John Cleland ruled the eyewitness account of a former Penn State janitor now incapacitated by dementia could be told to the jury by a co-worker.

While hearsay evidence is usually not allowed, the judge ruled Wednesday that the "excited utterance" exception would apply in the case of Jim Calhoun's revelation to co-worker Ron Petrosky one fall night in 2000 that he had just seen Sandusky performing oral sex on a young boy in the staff locker room showers of the Lasch Building.

With the apparent mountain of evidence the prosecutors have , why would they chance something like hearsay that could be used in an appeal ?

I think it would be an interesting story if one of the AM Reporters would interview some of the big name out of the area news reporters that are covering the perverts trial and ask them questions what they think of this area and its people, questions like" are they treated well by the local people, or do they sterotype the people of this area thinking everybody is a perv like Sandusky.

Hearsay rules the day
By Phil Ray
June 14, 2012

BELLEFONTE - The litany of Jerry Sandusky's alleged abuse of children was punctuated Wednesday by tears and expressions of fear and horror from several of his accusers and a janitor who didn't see the abuse but who repeated what a co-worker told him.

Outside the presence of the jury, a hearing was held about the admissibility of statements from a janitor who told co-workers he witnessed Sandusky's abuse of a child in a shower at the Lasch Football Building in the fall of 2000.

The janitor is in a nursing home, no longer able to testify, Senior Deputy Attorney General Joseph McGettigan said.

In this specific case, "Hearsay" is an important factor. Because of the severity of the charges, as well as the fact that minors are involved, it is completely permittable. In addition, it also strengthens the cases for the other PSU officials that were "in the know" about the allegations, but chose to do nothing. Unfortunately, prison really won't be a PUNISHMENT for Sandusky, but a CARNIVAL (with much older rides).

I can hear it now in Pa. courtrooms on hearsay testimoney. "Your Honor, I'm citing Sandusky v Pa. 2012 as a precedent in allowing this witness to testify as to what a person deceased 10 years ago told him . And as everyone knows, precedents are what law is all about.

Victim 6 shares allegations of 'inappropriate' behavior
By Phil Ray (pray@altoonamirror.com) , The Altoona Mirror
June 14, 2012

BELLEFONTE -- A 25-year-old man who now lives in Colorado and is about to graduate from Bible college testified today that he remembers "inappropriate" behavior in a shower with Jerry Sandusky that occurred when he was a child.

The man, identified as Victim 6, said he met Sandusky in May 1998. He said Sandusky took him to Holuba Hall on the Penn State University campus to work out.

This is almost becoming funny in a macabre way. Victim 6, who has to be praised for not exsagerating his confrontation with Sandusky, when it would be so easy to do so. And the Police Sargeant blames the missing and presumed dead D.A.as his link to reporting a serious allegation to higher-ups. That was some quick thinking in getting himself off the indicted hook for "Failure to Report".

Sexual abuse is the third most frequently reported form of child mistreatment (10% of all cases). Experts believe that sexual abuse may be the most underreported type of abuse because of the secrecy or "conspiracy of silence" that so often characterizes these cases. A generally accepted definition of sexual abuse is that of a child involved in sexual activity for which consent cannot be given, is outside of the victim's developmental age, is unable to comprehend, and/or "violates the law or social taboos of society." Examples include fondling and any form of genital, anal, or oral-genital contact with a child that are unwarranted. So far from the reports of testimony from the "victims" I think there "may" be conviction.

poverty and child abuse?

While children of families in all income levels suffer maltreatment, research suggests that family income is strongly related to incidence rates. Children from families with annual incomes below $15,000 per year are more than 25 times more likely than children from families with annual income above $30,000 to be harmed or endangered by abuse or neglect. Poverty clearly predisposes to child abuse. Currently, social scientists are questioning the previous interpretation of such data. Recently new research is challenging this belief. Some argue that poor families have increased contact with reporting agencies -- social workers, police, etc. Some also argue that affluent families are more often given the "benefit of the doubt" by those who might be more suspicious of poorer means. In addition, wealthier families are felt to have a better access to legal counsel that, realistically or not, provide an "escape hatch" from investigation and prosec
