The adopted son of former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky is seeking a name change more than a year after his father was convicted of child abuse, according to a report on Thursday from the Associated Press.

Matt Sandusky filed papers Tuesday in Centre County Court seeking to have the names of him and his family changed. Though the documents are sealed, they show he filed for a name change, along with his wife and four children.

Matt Sandusky was originally expected to be a defense witness at his father's trial until he revealed to investigators that he, too, had been abused by the former Nittany Lions assistant.

Jerry Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of sexual abuse and is serving a sentence of 30-to-60 years.
