Jerry Sandusky Scandal

Man, 30, gives interview alleging molestation by Jerry Sandusky in mid-1990s

A 30-year-old man came forward Thursday night in an interview with NBC News with new allegations of child sexual abuse against Jerry Sandusky.

Travis Weaver, who has filed a civil suit against Sandusky, The Second Mile and Penn State, told an NBC interviewer on “Rock Center” that Sandusky began molesting him when he was 10.

Weaver was not part of the trial in Centre County Court. But like many of the men who testified, he said he met Sandusky through The Second Mile, started taking showers with the former Penn State defensive coordinator and was eventually molested.

He said Sandusky took him to the Rose Bowl in 1995 and other Penn State football games.

Weaver told NBC that Sandusky molested him more than 100 times over four years, beginning in 1992 when he was 10. Years later, when Weaver threatened to call police, Sandusky allegedly said he would have Weaver’s father, who works at WPSU, fired if he told.

Weaver said he spent the night at the Sandusky home more than 100 times during the four years. He said Sandusky molested him both in the basement and an upstairs bedroom.

Weaver said he is angry with adults who he claims could have stopped the abuse. He singled out Mike McQueary, calling him a “coward.”

According to NBC, Weaver is among a group of men who came forward with accusations after the indictments in November. That group is willing to testify in court, and could be part of federal charges depending on the outcome of the Centre County trial.
