The mother of one of Jerry Sandusky’s grandchildren said Monday that the former Penn State defensive coach had abused her son, Penn State’s student newspaper, The Daily Collegian, reported on Tuesday. Jill Thomas, the ex-wife of Sandusky’s son Matthew, said that despite a judge’s ruling on Monday that her former father-in-law could see his grandchildren, she does not feel safe letting him see her three sons. “I cannot understand how a court could place the desires of someone who is criminally charged with sexually abusing children above the safety of children,” Thomas said in a statement. Thomas admitted there is not enough evidence to charge Sandusky with child abuse, but she said one of her sons told her that he had been “inappropriately touched” by Sandusky.
