Mom of alleged Sandusky victim says he confessed

In an exclusive interview with PennLive.com, the mother of one of the alleged victims in the Jerry Sandusky case said that Sandusky personally admitted to inappropriately touching her son while showering with him in 1998. The mother, who like her son is remaining unidentified, said that Sandusky told her he had committed the act, but investigators later declined to press charges. Here's more:

It allegedly happened in May 1998, following a tour of the football locker rooms. Her son and another boy, both 11, shared a shower with Sandusky.

When he got home he said, ‘If you’re wondering why my hair is wet, we took a shower together,’ and ran into his room, his mom recalls.

But after a six-week investigation that included the mother confronting Sandusky in her home as police listened in the other room, Sandusky was cleared.

Then-Centre County District Attorney Ray Gricar decided there wasn’t enough evidence.

When the mother confronted Sandusky, he said: “I understand. I was wrong. I wish I could get forgiveness. I know I won’t get it from you. I wish I were dead,” according the presentment from the grand jury.

“Jerry Sandusky admitted to my face, he admitted it,” the mother said. “He admitted that he lathered up my son they were naked and he bear-hugged him. If they would have done something about it in 1998, and then again in 2002 — there was two chances they dropped the ball and I think they should all be held accountable.”

In an interesting twist, Gricar disappeared in 2005, and has been presumed dead since then. Gricar never publicly spoke about why he declined to press charges, but the mother has said she was told "it was all a big mistake," according to PennLive.com. 

Gricar remained district attorney in 2002, when the next alleged incident involving Sandusky took place, but by all accounts he was never informed about that alleged incident. Indeed, police would not be notified about Sandusky's alleged conduct again until 2009, 11 years after this alleged incident, when the latest alleged victim came forth; that admission sparked the grand jury investigation that continues to this day.

In related news, Sandusky's court hearing on his charges has been moved from this Wednesday to December 7, per a continuation request from his attorneys.

OK I may be law stupid but if you have a victim that says something happened and the person who did the act admits it to the victims mother, first off how do you then have a SIX WEEK investigation, and secondly how do you dismiss the charges because of a lack of evidence?  How in the he11 does that happen?  The scum admitted he took a shower and lathered up a 10 year old boy with hugging being involved - that's not evidence.  For the other part of my stupidity, how after the DA dropped the charges did the MOTHER not go to EVERY radio and television nes show and tell her story?  If for nothing else to get this bucket of crap fired and possibly stopping anything like this from happening again.  I just don't get it.

Yes, killing or beating up a man is SO much better.  Yes it is a travesty about those children, but your brand of "justice" is nearly just as bad.  Sandusky's going to pay for his sins either in this life or in his afterlife.

Ok...let me spell it out for you...if that was my son...and Jerry Sandusky 'lathered him up and bear hugged him'...I would have no need for police involvement. There would be a room...with the two of us in it..and only one walking out...and I guarantee you..it wouldn't be him!

At the very least, Joe could have done what you or I would have done, which is fire his ass as soon as he heard what was going on.

I'm also a bit confused about the mother.  If someone had admitted to my face that he lathered up my sone in the shower....   We'd fight untill one of us died.

You ask "how is this Paterno's fault"? Because he maintained a relationship with this pond scum and continued to allow the piece of crap into the facilities to continue his sick, predatory behavior. This whole thing is absolutely sickening. The most disappointing part to me is that Paterno, as beloved as he is, the guardian, disiplinarian, face of college football, didn't lift a finger to protect those kids, and in fact, put more children in harms way.

And how is this Paterno's fault again? Investigators knew about it and failed to press charges, what did you all want Joe to do? He did what he needed to do, he told his superiors, it seems Police, etc did not do their job....
