Sandusky's son says father abused him
My Way ^ | 6/21/2012 | By MARK SCOLFORO and GENARO C. ARMAS

Posted on 06/21/2012 7:36:05 PM PDT by KansasGirl

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - Lawyers for one of Jerry Sandusky's adopted sons said the man has told authorities the former Penn State assistant football coach abused him.

The lawyers issued a statement Thursday naming Matt Sandusky, one of Jerry Sandusky's six adopted children, and saying that the 33-year-old had been prepared to testify on behalf of prosecutors at his father's sex abuse trial.

"During the trial, Matt Sandusky contacted us and requested our advice and assistance in arranging a meeting with prosecutors to disclose for the first time in this case that he is a victim of Jerry Sandusky's abuse," Andrew Shubin and Justine Andronici wrote in the statement. "At Matt's request, we immediately arranged a meeting between him and the prosecutors and investigators.

"This has been an extremely painful experience for Matt and he has asked us to convey his request that the media respect his privacy. There will be no further comment."

The statement was issued after jurors in the ex-coach's child sex abuse trial began deliberating 48 charges against him. The jurors are sequestered during deliberations.

Why didn’t the prosecution interview the “children” and bring this guy forward earlier?

Pray that the jurors do the right thing..you know, like they did for Casey Anthony.

Who do you hate more: Jerry or Dottie?

For me: Dotmeister, the lying sack who knows what a perv. her husband is and knew all along..coulda prevented him from destroying the lives of many innocent children by turning him in.

This is horrible how many lives have been affected by one man who was hell bent on satisfying his lusts of the flesh.

And, yet, this country has two candidates, Mitt and Obama, one who wants to lead this country after he initiated and implemented same sex marriage and one wants to remain leading his country and has the same sex marriage agenda. Worse that Sodom & Gomorrah. Nothing good comes out of this evil as we see in this case.

Of course he did. Sodomites are devoid of morality. They have warped realities which rationalize their acts so they think “Evil” is really “Good”. He believed he was a “loving” man giving “pleasure” to the boys. It was good for them.

They are Godless.

Sexual Addiction.
Has anyone seen the movie Shame? Gut wrenching portrait of untreated sexual addiction.

Difference between this and drug addiction is that the first takes more victims.

I can’t stand to look at him. His front teeth are obviously fake and he is so ugly. His voice is measured and scary.

If he goes to jail for even a day, Bubba’s waitin’ for this guy.

Dottie should be tried for perjury when this is over.

I suspect they did, but it’s pretty common for kids who have been through this kind of abuse to deny deny deny...part of their coping mechanism. Then all of a sudden something triggers it and they can’t keep it inside any longer. I feel sorry for all of the kids, as I suspect this one is not alone, and in any event they were living under the roof of a monster.

I agree with you, even though we cannot prove it, I can’t believe his wife did not know, or at least suspect. Yet she chose not to say anything. I would not want to live with that kind of guilt.

Matt isn't exactly your ideal credible witness. He was a barn burner. His brother is in jail for murder and his Mother is all over the map - always has been.

I think he only lived with Jerry for a year at age 17 and was adopted at age 18.

JS is still going to get his, but I think this is the start of the post-trial civil suit gravy train.

Matt Sandusky

Flame away.

She more or less admitted it when she said the basement wasn't soundproof and there's no way someone yelling for help could go unheard in their home. I totally believe her on that one. I also believe she just sat their and let the abuse go on.

Sodomites are narcissists and idolators-—it is very selfish and it is all about selfish lust. Their lifestyle precludes true friendships and mature relationships for cheap debasing, sexual urges that reduce human beings to base animals for their use. They have no self-mastery-—and their urges are misdirected. It is why homosexuals are much more likely to be pedophiles.

It is Marxist ideology because it is Godless-—where they use human beings as a “means to an end”. It dehumanizes man. Christianity rejects using human beings as a means.

You can not be pro-homosexual—and a Christian. It is like saying a Marxist can be a Christian. They can’t. You can never use human beings in such a degrading, debasing manner if you are a practicing Christian. It is evil.

You do know that Matt was adopted by js at age 17 and lived with him for about a year and a half. Right?

Do you know anything about Matt’s background or his family’s background? Have you read Ganim’s other stories on Matt? Ron Heichel is his brother and he is in jail for killing Mirinda Boob’s husband. Ron and Matt Heichel weren’t innocent young kids. Anyone in that valley will tell you that.

See, the headline makes people conjure up images that just aren’t reality.

As I’ve said previously, js is going to get his, but stop believing the media. Of all forums, this is the last one I’d expect to just gobble up crap like this.

The local (Harrisburg, PA) news they said he was interviewed, but did not come forth at that time(s). He only just decided to step up now. He just got a lawyer to represent him before he presented the info.

He is now an ace in the hole who they used in the last few days to tell Sandusky's defense team that he would be called if Sandusky testified in his own defense.

Now as I have mention several times on FR, these type of criminals need to be publicly executed. The recidivism rate is nearly (something like) 90%. Prison only gives them time to think of what they will do to the next kid they get to molest/rape.

Make sure the next trial of one of them allows NO DOUBT what their sentence will be. A few public executions (televised) will go a long way toward prevention of it happening again.

Also Spannier (sp?) the X president of PSU knew of reports of this too. Multiple times.
He is still collecting his multi million $$$ retirement... and benefits package, mostly on the backs of the citizens! That should be canceled immediately or ASAP!
Others at PSU (in the admin and staff) also knew and ALL should be terminated also. If the are still working for the state or any education institution terminate them. Remove retirement & benefits from them also.

You are presuming that she wasn’t actively supportive (and protective) of her husband’s “activities” with children.

Is it just me, or does Dottie’s facial expression seem odd in some of the photos? Cold? Defiant? Creepy woman.

So this guy abused who knows how many children over so many years, apparently with witnesses at times yet nothing was done, no kids’ parents complained, no investigations, why ?

The answer seems to be that nothing matters when some stupid sport is to blame, especially if it’s raising lots of money for the College, rah rah.

Sick, I detest the jock mentality even more.

One, the victims were from dysfunctional families. Sandusky chose them from the charity foundation that was supposedly helping them.

Two, it was witnessed in one case and reported to higher-ups at Penn St., not to parents. At least that’s the case we know about that was witnessed and testified to.

Three, the victims didn’t go around blabbing about it. To the contrary they didn’t want to reveal it, and it appears each one thought he was THE one Sandusky was abusing, not knowing many other were also being abused.

I recall reading that in a single instance, a kid did complain to his mother about Sandusky, but I don’t know exactly what he told her. But she did get upset and called the Sandusky home and Dottie answered and then told Jerry about it. He then went and apologized to the woman because her son was upset, but I don’t know what exactly he admitted to.

It seems like there was a letter of apology as well, either to the mother or the kid, can’t recall.

I’m wondering if they weren’t paid off.

They are replacing the philosophy of America-—our Rights come from God—with a Pagan government/constitution—Rights from pervert Barney Frank—arbitary, unjust laws which promote evil law and not Just Law. It is unconstitutional.

We have to stop the indoctrination and brainwashing which is normalizing in our children a dehumanizing, evil behavior and calling it a “God” given Right. So sickening and a return to pagan Greek practices where pederasty was normal.

You can not be pro-homosexual—and a Christian.

This blanket statement is so misleading! This is true only as an aspect centering around the "religion." However, all of us sin, but that does not prevent us from accepting Jesus as Lord and becoming Christian. Just because you are Christian does not mean you will not still sin.

When I see this blanket statement you made I feel as though it needs clarification.

If you are pro-homosexual a "good" Christian you might not be, ignorance may come into play, but a Christ One you will always remain no matter how convoluted your thoughts.

Sandusky was in Matt’s life before he adopted him (the article you posted said he went to live with Sandusky at 15). Sandusky preyed on troubled boys. Matt was a prime target for Sandusky.

Matt Sandusky, 33, has been a peripheral presence in the case since it broke into public view last fall. He was involved in the Second Mile, the charity for troubled youth where, prosecutors said, Jerry Sandusky found his victims, and then, at about age 11, went to live with the Sanduskys, at first as a foster child.

Matt went to live with the Sandusky’s at AGE 11 not 17 as you keep saying!

Matt was 11 when he met Sandusky through the second mile. After going to live with Sandusky, his troubles increased. He ran away and tried to kill himself. His mother suspected abuse and tried to get him removed from the Sandusky home.

You MISS my point. Christians have to recognize such degrading, debasing acts as being “sins”. If you rationalize such debasement as “Good”—you can never be a “Christian”. You are a Satanist—a nihilist—or whatever—never a Christian. Your ideology is devoid of reason. Christianity is a reasoned religion—always has been since before St. Augustine.

Natural Law—not just religion-—recognizes the teleological aspect of human beings -and this Common Sense even allows children as young as five to “know” how disordered playing with fecal material is and misusing the organs and body for debasing reasons....unless the child is emotionally/and/or physically abused.

All “Sinners” know in their hearts when they sin. That internal “Truth” in the soul is there in childhood and I repeat-—if homosexuals think that sodomy is “good”, they have no Christian beliefs. They are Satanists.

Sodomizing boys goes way back to Ancient Greek traditions. All cultures practiced it—the Samurai—Eastern nations—and today the Afghanis still do it and homosexuality/pederasty was popular in the SA Nazi Party.

Hollywood Producers raped the Corey actors (one committed suicide recently) when they were boys and no one is calling for their names and putting them away. (Pssst—it is ok for Hollywood to promote and participate in sodomy). Chastity Bono was raped by a Lesbian at age 11—and no one went to jail. Her mother thought it was good for her.

The Hollywood producers are probably still raping boys in their homosexual rings, the way the non-athlete John Maynard Keynes, did. Keynes even castrated boys and they died in his Satanic, homosexual orgies. But no outrage-—and Keynes was venerated (is still venerated) by the Leftists even though his economic policies are destroying all of Europe and America.

The Left want to make intergenerational sex legal again. It is the reason why they are normalizing sodomy in the classrooms as young a Kindergarten now. They have to form the worldview of little boys to make such things acceptable-—the way they do it with little Afghani boys so they can’t wait to grow up and have their little harem of boys. It is learned behavior and the Sodomites know it because most of them were abused as boys and fixated in that immature, dysfunctional state.

Don’t blame sports-—they go after the boy scouts (homosexuals in Germany took over boy scout troops and had homosexual orgies in the woods with the boys. They infiltrate any area where there are boys. They are fixated at the age they were molested and abused. They love corrupting the innocent. It makes them feel less depraved and icky.

Not to turn this into a long winded/theological debate, but based on what I'm reading you are missing my point also. Being a "good" Christian is following the precepts of Christ I would assume you think, and I do too. However, there are "bad" Christians and they are not any less Christian. Which by Gods standards there are NO "GOOD" Christians, because ONLY He is GOOD.

Christian is not synonymous with "sinless." Being ignorant of Christ precepts does not make people any less Christian, they are just ignorant and act upon a sinful nature. It's when you have NOT accepted Christ that sin separates you.

I'm just saying you are no less saved by grace if you think homosexuality is honorable than Peter, Paul or Matthew. However, the HS is going to have to deal with the consequence of sin and the church has every right to keep them out until they repent.

I see your point, but I say “bad” Christians are in Mortal sin and “separated” from God and will go to hell if they die in that state.

Saying “Bad” Christians are just the same as Christians in good-standing doesn’t make sense. Christians “knowingly doing evil acts” in such an abominable way—and yes, some sins are greater than others and acts of homosexuality are particularly grievous and disordered-—Those that are practicing in those evil acts are not practicing Christianity. As such—they are not practicing Christians. They are “CINO” which is like cafeteria Catholics-—the name doesn’t make them in a state of Grace and a member of the Body of Christ— if they reject the teachings and the practice as True. They should be excommunicated and by their very actions are separated from the Church. They should never be allowed communion until they repent which means they understand the evil of their sin. Then—I agree, they are like other Christians who will always sin, but understand their transgressions against God and always are sorry.

Practicing homosexuals are actively rejecting God and his commandments. Now, can they repent of their sin—absolutely, but they promise to try to sin no more—but if they do not even know sodomy acts are evil and disordered-—then, I would say they have no concept of Christianity—and can never be a practicing Christian.

I do believe in justification by faith-—but not with the “alone” bit. (Catholic).

(Gal.5:6) Good works are also required for salvation, because we are justified by “faith working by love”.

I think it is unreasonable to think that “Works” are useless in a person’s life on earth, but I am not Lutheran.

...And this is why we are REALLY having this discussion. There is nothing indicating a condition for God's Love and Grace. NOTHING. If we could inherit salvation by GOOD WORKS Christ death on the cross is useless!

Your misinterpreting the verse (Gal 5:6). We are "Justified" outwardly to others by works, not God. Remember, WE can not "Justify" ourselves before God no matter what we do. Christ had to become our advocate! Read the whole chapter.

See, there is no way you can even know all your sin. Good works is NOT part of God's plan for salvation, in fact it is the opposite plan from the old testament. Working to EARN salvation most certainly doesn't fall inline with the spirit of scripture.

However, I'm not sure if doing good works would not bring rewards in Heaven.
