We're only in day No. 2 of the Jerry Sandusky sex assault trial, and details of alleged victim testimony are already becoming just about unbearable. A day after "Victim 4" described years of molestation and bribery by Sandusky, "Victim 1" took the stand, breaking down in tears while recounting some of the worst moments yet.
First, there's this:
Victim 1 says that he went to a guidance counselor who said "Jerry wouldn't do that he has a heart of gold"— Ben Jones (@Ben_Jones88) June 12, 2012
The teen told the jury Sandusky would also initiate contact by blowing on his stomach and performed oral sex on him.
"I spaced,'' the alleged victim said. "I didn't know what to do with all the thoughts running through my head, I just kind of blacked out and didn't want it to happen. I froze.''
Sandusky didn't visibly react to the teen's account and looked straight ahead during his testimony.
"Victim 1" is the 18-year-old whose story helped launch the investigation that led to the grand jury report bombshell in the first place. He's the second of as many as eight young men who could testify against Sandusky during the trial.
Meanwhile, the defense's primary argument has been that each of the accusers is uniquely not credible and that money has played a role in their claims against the former Penn State coach.
