Tuesday 1.21.14 Tampa Tribune AP >> PENN STATE: The son of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky participated in a documentary about his father's sexual-abuse case and hopes to become an advocate for child victims. Matt Sandusky told the Centre Daily Times that he took part in "Happy Valley" because he has become strong enough to tell his story and wants to help other survivors. The 100-minute film, debuting this week at the Sundance Film Festival, explores whether it was an open secret that Jerry Sandusky was molesting boys. "For me and all survivors it is important to have control over the timing and setting of the disclosure," Matt Sandusky told the newspaper. Matt Sandusky had been listed as a defense witness at his father's 2012 trial, but he instead disclosed through lawyers that he had also been abused and didn't take the stand. Jerry Sandusky, convicted on 45 counts involving 10 boys, maintains his innocence and is appealing his conviction. He is serving a 30-year to 60-year prison term. << www.tbo.com/sports ****** Well, certainly great that Matt is wanting to help other boys who have suffered abuse. And as sad as it is that young boys have suffered this, it is so hard to understand how a father could do that to his own son. There is a young boy that I know that has had that happen to him. And his Dad is in prison. And the young boy is such a great kid!
