Matthew Sandusky Discusses Child Sex Abuse At Stockton University
Matthew Sandusky’s first memory is of sitting on a bed at age 3, and “my biological father is burning my toes with a cigarette lighter,” Sandusky said during an appearance at Stockton University Thursday night.
More years of beatings and other horribly dysfunctional family life followed, leaving him vulnerable to Penn State assistant football coach and sexual predator Jerry Sandusky, who came into his life when a guidance counselor thought positive male mentorship through Sandusky’s Second Mile organization would help Matthew.
“The man who sexually abused me groomed the whole country and world,” Matthew Sandusky said of his adoptive father, who could be charming and also appeared to be above reproach.
Matthew Sandusky, 38, characterized Jerry Sandusky as “the fun guy,” who was always throwing kids in the pool and wrestling with them.

They are protected by New York State laws.
