Jerry Sandusky's letters to alleged Victim 4: 'I am a great pretender'
Published: Thursday, June 21, 2012, 6:12 PM   

As the sexual abuse trial for former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky concluded in Centre County this afternoon, the prosecution made its evidence available for media to observe.

Six of the so-called "creepy" letters Sandusky wrote to alleged Victim 4 were made available in their entirety. Here is one of six letters the prosecution entered as evidence.


(Victim 4):

Yes, I am a “Great Pretender.” I pretend that I can sing. I pretend about many things. However, I can’t pretend about my feelings and want you to always remember that I care.   ::snipping2::

Please note, the alleged victim's name has been removed in all instances from the letters.


(Victim 4):

I know that I have made my share of mistakes.

However I hope that I will be able to say that I cared. There has been love in my heart.

My wish is that you care and have love in your heart. Love never ends. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

I believe that it can overcome all things!

With love,

It is just my opinion, but I think ole Jer is lower than a snake's belly and I think
his wife has been aware of his activities for many years and has covered for him.

I hope they find him guilty on all counts!!

Jerry Sandusky's letters to alleged Victim 4: 'I have many Forrest Gump qualities'
June 21 '12

 ::snipping2::  (Victim 4):

Driving home the other night, I had many thoughts. Some happy, some a little sad. As you know, I am very emotional and kind of let everything out. I’m not good at hiding my feelings. I have many “Forrest Gump” qualities and I thought a lot about that more as I was driving home. As you would expect, I cried at that movie.

I remembered Forrest and how he was so naive (oblivious to the world) and not very smart. He was so happy because he wasn’t caught up in being anything other than a caring person (I wish that I had more of that in me).

There was his wife and some friends who didn’t understand what he had and tried to find their happiness by partying and living the fast life. So many people look for happiness that way. It didn’t come for his wife or his friends. They turned away from him and went searching. Unfortunately, they only found hopelessness, despair and became depressed.

Forrest stayed loyal, he didn’t know any better. Somehow, people like him are blessed. He never gave up because he cared. When those special people came back to his simple life of love and concern they found hope and true happiness.

As you go through life you may have moments when you think that there is a lifestyle out there somewhere that is the answer. I hope that in the back of your mind will be a memory of simple times, hopefully laughter, joy and warm smiles.

Try not to ever forget all of those who care. Try to remember canoes, squirt guns, water balloons, fighting outside, miniature golf, Polish soccer, basketball, racquetball, football, swimming, studying, lifting, working, golfing, volleyball, kickball, soccer, laughing, hurting, arguing, crying, caring and so much more fun.

Always,

Forrest Jer

I too have flashbacks of the Casey Anthony trial and its outcome.  It scares the heck out of me.

If Jerry Sandusky walks ... the prosecution has some explaining to do.  The testimony of Matt Sandusky under oath as a prosecution witness could have afforded validation to the claims of the victims.  In other words ... the icing on the cake ... a Perry Mason moment.

The prosecution saving Matt as a rebuttal witness in the event that his father take the stand makes no sense.  The prosecution should have foreseen that the defence would rest its case when it was learned that Matt would be called as a rebuttal witness.

Jerry Sandusky case: Sandusky's adopted son, Matt, says he is a victim and would have testified, lawyer says
Published: Thursday, June 21, 2012, 4:26 PM
Updated: Thursday, June 21, 2012, 5:27 PM


BELLEFONTE -- Matt Sandusky, through his attorney Andrew Shubin, said that he met with prosecutors this week to say for the first time that he is a molestation victim of Jerry Sandusky, his adopted father. Matt, 33, was adopted by Jerry and Dottie Sandusky as an adult, after going to live with the family as a foster child.
         
He has denied ever being abused by his adopted father until now. “This has been an extremely painful experience for Matt and he has asked us to convey his request that the media respect his privacy. There will be no further comment,” Shubin said in a statement.

Shubin also said Matt was prepared to testify truthfully at trial, if called by prosecutors. It is unclear why he did not testify.

Thanks Gypsy.

Again ... why was Matt Sandusky not called as a witness for the prosecution?

Janet

++++

If he was vocal about his support for Jerry before the trial I don't see why the prosecution would call him... Just because you can call him doesn't mean doing so will help your case. If he was so supportive of Jerry what would he have said to help the prosecution and if he did say something his credibility could have been questioned since he was supportive of jerry up until the trial. It's not just his answers to the prosecutions questions but also when the defense would say "but didn't you take your children to visit him after his arrest.."

They couldn't have known he'd be willing to admit what happened when it seems like he was only ready after the trial began. I think they don't want to put someone on the stand when they don't know how they will respond.(remember Cindy A?).. And I bet Matt would have fit that description.

Sure now we/they find out he would have testified about his own experience. Hind sight is 20-20 though. I wonder if hearing about the incident where Victim 4 mentioned Matt made him come forward...

 ::snipping2::
When asked by prosecutors whether Jerry Sandusky ever engaged him in a soap battle in the showers, he recounted the time when he and Matt Sandusky had been playing racketball. After the game, they went back to a locker room, where Matt got undressed and got into the shower. Victim 4 and Sandusky followed Matt Sandusky into the shower area, he testified.

"Me and Jerry came in. He started pumping his hand full of soap," Victim 4 said.

At that point, Matt shut off his shower and left and went to another locker room to shower, the witness said.

Asked by prosecutors about Matt's facial expression when the soap battles  started, he replied: "Nervous."
 ::snipping2::



 I did find an interesting article about Matt/his mom though... (Is not letting me copy/paste) It's probably been here before.

Why was Dottie crying?  For Jerry?  For herself, knowing life will never be the same no matter what the verdict?  Probably not for the boys that came forward.  JMHO

Attorneys: Sandusky's adopted son says he's also a victim
June 21, 2012

 ::snipping2::
The fate of Sandusky, who is confronted with accusations of child sexual abuse involving 10 alleged victims, is now largely in the hands of a jury that began deliberations on Thursday.

Sandusky, 68, pleaded not guilty to charges of child sex abuse over a 15-year period.

After a week of testimony, jurors with have to decide without having heard from the former Penn State defensive coordinator on the witness stand.

During closing arguments, his defense sought to poke holes in the prosecution's case, pointing to inconsistencies with the testimony of Mike McQueary, a former graduate student and assistant coach who said he saw Sandusky apparently sodomizing a boy in a university shower.

Defense attorney Joe Amendola reminded jurors of the lack of physical evidence in the case. He accused the alleged victims of conspiring for financial gain while blaming the media for what he described as biased coverage.
During the arguments, Sandusky's wife, Dottie, was seen quietly crying.

Lead prosecutor Joseph McGettigan followed Amendola, rebuffing the defense's account of a coordinated action among Sandusky's accusers allegedly bent on financial windfall.

"The great thing about conspiracy theories is you just let them go on and on, until they collapse under their own weight," he said.

McGettigan described the former coach as a pedophile who systematically preyed on his victims using a charity he founded for troubled children, identifying and repeatedly abusing young boys in his care.

"The commonwealth has overwhelming evidence against Mr. Sandusky," he said.

Prosecution closes in Sandusky case; jury begins deliberations
June 21, 2012

BELLEFONTE, Pa. -- The lead prosecutor in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse case urged the jury to find him guilty on all counts, calling him a "serial predatory pedophile" who preyed on vulnerable children.
 ::snipping2::
He mentioned Dorothy Sandusky's answer to a question at the end of her testimony about why all of the accusers would lie. Ms. Sandusky testified that she didn't know why. "The truthful answer would have been 'I know they're not lying,'" the prosecutor said.

"You can see the full spectrum of predatory pedophile behavior" from the eight accusers' testimony, he said. It went to "full bloom" with anal and oral sex with three of the boys, Mr. McGettigan said. He said Mr. Sandusky targeted fatherless boys in programs run by his charity, The Second Mile. "Reaching out to those who need the most help? He was preying on those who were most vulnerable."
 ::snipping2::
In a 72-minute closing argument, the defense lawyer castigated police for repeatedly questioning would-be accusers until they embellished their stories, and lawyers who he said were after a big payday from civil lawsuits that would be enhanced if Mr. Sandusky is found guilty.

"On November 5 of last year, Mr. Sandusky's world came to an end. Mrs. Sandusky's world came to an end. Mr. Sandusky's children's world came to an end," he said of the day that charges were announced by the state attorney general's office.
