Jerry Sandusky Allegedly Sent Love Letters To Victims
The pre-trial proceedings in the Jerry Sandusky case haven’t yet come to a close, with jury selection set to wrap up tomorrow, but the first major piece of evidence that will come from the prosecution on Monday has leaked. ABC News reported early this evening that Sandusky allegedly sent “creepy” love letters to his victims. Letters sent to Victim 4 will be read into testimony when the trial gets underway on Monday.
ABC News, citing sources working close with the case, also reported that Victim 4 — who first met Sandusky as a Second Mile child and is expected to be the first witness to take the stand for the prosecution — will show gifts that Sandusky provided him with during their relationship, including a set of golf clubs. It is expected that the prosecution will be able to prove that the letters are in fact written in Sandusky’s handwriting, and one is even in the third-person, which includes a “lewd title and is a love story between a boy and a man,” according to the report.
Victim 4, who’s name has not yet been released but will be at some point during the trial despite his petition to remain anonymous, was allegedly abused by Sandusky when on trips with the football team, most likely through the Second Mile Foundation.
This news comes soon after the first day of jury selection wrapped up, with nine of the eventual sixteen jurors (twelve on the bench and four alternates) seated. We will continue to keep you updated throughout the trial.
