STAGE TUBE: Sandusky Opens Up to Bob Costas on NBC's ROCK CENTER WITH BRIAN WILLIAMS
In an exclusive interview with Bob Costas for NBC's "Rock Center with BrIan Williams," former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky admitted to showering and horsing around with young boys but said he is not a pedophile. Below is a clip from tonight's interview with mandatory restrictions.
Joe Paterno's one-time defensive coordinator was charged earlier this month with 40 criminal counts accusing him of sexual abuse of minors. He is currently free on a $100,000 bond and has denied any wrongdoing. The allegations date back to 1994, according to the grand jury report filed November 5 in Pennsylvania state court. The report detailed claims of alleged sexual encounters with as many as eight boys in Sandusky's home, hotels and Penn State locker rooms.
"I could say that I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact," Sandusky admitted during the interview.
