Report: Sandusky sent love letters

Published Jun. 5, 2012 1:00 a.m. ET

Jerry Sandusky allegedly wrote love letters to one of his victims, and they will be read in testimony once the child sex abuse trial into the former Penn State assistant football coach begins Monday, ABC News reported, citing sources close to the case.

The love letters were allegedly written to “Victim 4,” one of eight accusers set to testify against the 68-year-old.

Victim 4 is set to be the first witness to testify and is also expected to show gifts that Sandusky allegedly gave him, including a set of golf clubs.

The report states that the letters are allegedly handwritten by Sandusky, with one of them a story written in the third person.


Victim 4, now 28, met the coach through Sandusky's charity, the Second Mile.

Ben Andreozzi, the attorney for Victim 4, would not talk about the letters, but did say, "They have evidence to support his allegations, and there's other evidence that has not been released to the public yet that I think will really resonate with the jury."

The report came as nine jurors were selected Tuesday during the first day of jury selection at Centre County Courthouse.

Sandusky faces 52 counts for allegedly molesting 10 boys over a 15-year period. The former defensive coordinator pleaded not guilty and has remained under house arrest since being charged in November.
