Jerry Sandusky Trial: 'Victim 10' Alleges Threats After Sexual Assault

Day 3 of the Jerry Sandusky trial has brought more and more horrible testimony against the former Penn State coach, including allegations of threats after one episode of sexual assault. The accuser identified as "Victim 10" accused Sandusky of threatening him with isolation from family if he ever told, adding that Sandusky later told him he loved him.

Via the Associated Press:

The man, now 25 and called Victim 10 by prosecutors, told jurors Sandusky assaulted him in the basement of the former Penn State assistant football coach's State College home in the late 1990s, then threatened to keep him away from his biological family.

"He told me that if I ever told anyone that I'd never see my family again," the accuser testified, adding that he believed Sandusky's wife, Dottie, was home at the time.

"Victim 7" has also testified, describing in truly quease-inducing detail the effects of Sandusky's alleged molestation.

That particular threat alleged by "Victim 10" might be one of the most appalling claims yet, especially considering Sandusky's Second Mile charity was founded with the supposed mission of helping young boys with troubled family lives. According to the charge, Sandusky used the threat of actively worsening a family life just to keep sexual abuse quiet.
