Sandusky accuser goes public


BELLEFONTE (WKOW) -- Former Assistant Football Coach Jerry Sandusky faces 30 to 60 years in prison. Just following his recent sentencing, a young man whose allegations of sexual abuse triggered the criminal investigation into Sandusky will talk publicly about the ordeal.

A pre-recorded interview with 18-year-old Aaron Fisher airs Friday on ABC'S "Good Morning America." In the interview, Fisher says he was 11 when he met Sandusky. Fisher says, he was abused during weekend visits at the Sandusky home.

As a teenager, Sandusky was a volunteer coach at Fisher's high school. Fisher says he told the school principal and others about the abuse, but nothing was done. He also spoke to People magazine.

The ABC interview airs a day after Sandusky launched his effort to overturn his child sexual abuse convictions with a set of motions alleging there was insufficient evidence and he received an unfair trial. Sandusky says his lawyers were not given enough time to properly prepare for the case.
