Victim #1 takes the stand today. Victim 1 is the most recent incident, and he is only 18 as of this date. He was the victim who first told about the abuse.
The sobs from the witness stand were loud and prolonged, the cracking voice of Victim No. 1 in the Jerry Sandusky child sexual molestation trial gasping for breath as he detailed repeated acts of oral sex with the former Penn State defensive coordinator.
Now 18, the witness sat with his hands clasped in his lap, leaned into a microphone and slowly, painfully and purposefully delivered his disturbing memories of being an 11-, 12-year-old boy, alone with Sandusky on the waterbed in Sandusky’s State College basement.
The sighs and sniffs echoed around a rapt Centre County Courtroom as jurors looked on, a couple noticeably disturbed. A few grimaced at the retelling and shook their heads.

Investigators are mulling whether to bring charges against former Penn State president Graham Spanier for possibly helping to cover up child abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky, according to a new report.
Authorities have “major new evidence,” including emails between Spanier, former university vice president Gary Schultz and ex-athletic director Tim Curley, NBC News reported Monday.
Schultz and Curley have pleaded not guilty to perjury charges for allegedly lying to a grand jury about what they were told about Sandusky’s alleged conduct.
There is absolutely no telling how deep and how dark this thing goes.
Cover up? There is no doubt, and for all those years where there were more victims, it was known what was going on with Sandusky. The latest victim (Victim #1), the boy who brought this all to light, is only 18 years old today.
What is not made clear is the fact that Jerry Sandusky did not work for Penn State in any capacity since 1999. June 1999
Sandusky retires from Penn State but still holds emeritus status.
He was given an office and unlimited access to university facilities by the university.
