In an exclusive video interview with the New York Times,  former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky denied allegations that he sexually abused dozens of boys over the last few decades, using his charity The Second Mile as a kind of “farm team” to pick his victims:

“They’ve taken everything that I ever did for any young person and twisted it to say that my motives were sexual or whatever,” Mr. Sandusky said. He added: “I had kid after kid after kid who might say I was a father figure. And they just twisted that all.”

Sandusky confirmed part of what prosecutors have called a “manipulative scheme” to shower boys with gifts in return for their trust and affection:

“I would call kids on the phone and work with them academically,” he said. “I tried to reward them sometimes with a little money in hand, just so that they could see something. But more often than not, I tried to set up, maybe get them to save the money, and I put it directly into a savings account established for them.”

In a bombshell, Sandusky also said that his boss, head coach Joe Paterno, never spoke to him about the alleged incidents of sexual abuse:

“I never talked to him about either one,” Mr. Sandusky said of Mr. Paterno. “That’s all I can say. I mean, I don’t know.”
