Posted December 03, 2011 on AP on Fox
Attorneys for one of the alleged sex abuse victims of former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky say his New York Times interview contains an ''unconvincing denial and a series of bizarre explanations'' for Sandusky's behavior. In a written statement released Saturday, the attorneys for one of Sandusky's eight accusers say the former coach's comments wrongly cast Sandusky as a ''victim,'' which further harms their client and the other alleged victims. David Marshall, one of the attorneys, says Sandusky's interview also ''goes a long way'' toward corroborating the accusers' version of events because Sandusky acknowledged showering and wrestling with the boys.
