Excerpts of Sandusky interview to be televised

CBSSports.com wire reports

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- An interview with Jerry Sandusky is expected to be aired on NBC's Today show, a rare instance of the former Penn State assistant football coach giving his own side of the story.

The network said the Monday morning broadcast will include Sandusky's remarks about his former boss Joe Paterno, who died two months after being fired following Sandusky's arrest in 2011.

Sandusky's lawyer Norris Gelman says the interview excerpts are from John Ziegler, a documentary filmmaker working on a defense of Paterno.

In a statement Sunday, Paterno family attorney Wick Sollers says Sandusky had the opportunity to speak under oath during his trial but he "chose not to do so."

Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year sentence after being convicted of child sexual abuse. He maintains his innocence and is pursuing appeals.
