Sandusky Gives Interview From Prison

The Today show previewed new interviews with disgraced former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky Monday morning. Sandusky, who is serving at least 30 years in prison after being convicted on 45 counts of child sex abuse, says that he’s not sure if his mentor, Penn State head coach Joe Paterno, suspected that he was abusing children. He also said that the most damning evidence against him, testimony from another coach saying that he saw Sandusky in sexually charged conduct with a young boy in the locker room, misrepresented what was actually happening: they were merely “fooling around.”
