Jerry Sandusky: New allegation, Penn State hires Ken Feinberg, Victim 1 to speak

In the most recent developments:

• A Pennsylvania man has claimed that Sandusky, the former Penn State defensive coordinator, was part of a child sex ring that spanned several states.

• Penn State has hired the man who ran the Sept. 11 victim compensation fund as it seeks to resolve litigation with victims.

• The man known as Victim 1 will soon tell his story in a book and ABC-TV interview.

The New York Daily News reports that Greg Bucceroni, a self-described former child prostitute, sent an email naming Sandusky to officials at Brooklyn’s Poly Prep Country Day School, where former students allege they were abused by coach Phil Foglietta. Bucceroni claims that he was taken to State College, Pa., in 1979 “for the purpose of child prostitution with Jerry Sandusky at a Second Mile [Sandusky’s charity for abused children] fundraiser.” Sandusky, he said, “became unavailable.”

As that unfolds, Penn State is seeking to wrap up claims in the matter. It has hired attorney Ken Feinberg, who also helped resolve claims arising from the BP oil spill and the Virginia Tech shootings. The university hopes to resolve all litigation, the Associated Press reports, by the end of the year.

It is not clear when Victim 1 will be interviewed, but his book is expected next month, the New York Post reports.
