Sandusky: Paterno Never Confronted Me

Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky says head coach Joe Paterno never spoke with him about the reports of sexual assault made against him, and that Sandusky's charity, The Second Mile, never restricted his access to children until he officially became the subject of a criminal investigation. In an extended interview with The New York Times, Sandusky continues to deny the charges against him, though he acknowledged elements of the case, such as his habit of buying expensive gifts for young boys involved in his charity program, having them over for wrestling matches and sleepovers, and showering with them.
