Lawyers release voicemail purportedly from Sandusky to 'Victim 2'
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -
Lawyers for a man who they say was "Victim 2" in the Jerry Sandusky case have released a pair of voicemails recorded last year, in which a man who is purported to be Sandusky expresses his love.
The lawyers say their client was the boy who was seen being assaulted in the Penn State football team's showers in 2001 by Sandusky. They say he suffered "extensive sexual abuse over many years" both before and after that incident.
And now, they are threatening to sue the university.
The voicemails are dated from September of last year, less than two months before the former Penn State assistant coach was arrested on child sex abuse charges.
In one of the voicemails, the man identified as Sandusky asks whether the person who is purported to be Victim 2 would like to attend Penn State's next game.
Attorneys say Sandusky left "numerous" voicemails for their client that fall.
The identity of "Victim 2" was one of the remaining mysteries from the trial of Sandusky, which ended in his conviction on 45 sex abuse counts. Those included counts related to Victim 2, based on the testimony of a former graduate assistant with the team, who described seeing the attack.
