Sandusky (AP): ‘I Horsed Around With Boys in the Shower, Hugged Them and Touched Their Legs…But I’m Not Sexually Attracted to Them’

In typical form, Sandusky is saying what many predators of children say when they are caught, ‘I only showed her how to bathe.’…’Isn’t a father allowed to hug his daughter?’…’All I did was have her sit on my lap.’ and the Never Neverland guy, ‘I slept in the same bed with boys, but I never touched them.’

NEW YORK (AP) — “The former Penn State assistant football coach at the heart of a massive sex scandal said he showered with young boys and hugged them but called the allegedly criminal contact “horseplay.”

Jerry Sandusky told NBC News’ “Rock Center” on Monday night that he was not a pedophile but, in retrospect, should not have showered with the boys he’s charged with sexually assaulting.”

“I am innocent of those charges,” Sandusky said. “… I could say that I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them, and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact.”

Asked whether he was sexually attracted to underage boys, he said “sexually attracted, no. I enjoy young people, I love to be around them, but, no, I’m not sexually attracted to young boys.”

Notice that he repeats the words right back? “It’s a Freudian admission of the fact.

“Asked if there was anything he had done wrong, Sandusky said, “I shouldn’t have showered with those kids.”

“Wide receivers coach Mike McQueary told a grand jury that in March 2002 when he was a graduate assistant, he saw Sandusky sodomizing a boy about 10 years old in a shower at the Nittany Lions’ practice center. McQueary did not go to police but instead told Paterno, Curley and Schultz, although it is unclear how detailed a description he gave. Schultz, in turn, notified Spanier.

Sandusky told NBC there was no sexual contact.

“We were showering and horsing around, and he actually turned all the showers on and was actually sliding across the floor, and we were, as I recall, possibly like snapping a towel — horseplay,” he said.”

    I remember a time when one of my mother’s many boyfriends told me, when I was 12, that the only reason that he was dating my mother was because, “I want to be close to you.”

    I came home from school one day, in the sixth grade, and he was in our shower, unknown to me. He called me to come into the bathroom and invited me into the shower with him. “It’s OK because I have my underwear on, and I won’t take them off unless you want me to.”

    I panicked because I didn’t expect him to be in our home alone with me. Luckily a brother came home and had to use the toilet. When my mother’s boyfriend called out my name and said that he had on his leopard bikini briefs and he wanted to show them to me, as my brother entered the bathroom, my brother knew that he was after me for sexual purposes.

    He lit into that man with all he had and told him that he knew that he was a perp and was going to “tell.” He denied that he was a perp and said that it was just an innocent comment.

    Why is it that male predators use the term “horsing around,” “It was just horseplay” or “tickling games”, when they are referring to sexual foreplay, sexual stimulation, sexual contact, or sexual relations with children?

    Horseplay is what goes on in a group or team of men, and it’s not done in secret. Men his age don’t just “horse around” with 10 year-olds in an empty shower in the nude.

    Sandusky is not fooling anyone. His friends in power knew he was a perp and protected him when they were required by law to protect the child and report the abuse.

    if ur going to talk about michael jackson you should really do some research
    he said during that documentary that he slept on the floor while the kid slept in the bed something his later accuser gavin confirmed
    him supposedly saying he slept in the bed with him was just the way it was edited before it was put on tv
    2 books to read michael jackson conspiracy by aphrodite jones which is about the trial in 2005
    and michael jackson redemption by geraldine hudges which is about the 1993 allegations
    if you dont feel like reading you can find these on youtube where u can also find the charles tompson interview its 6 or 7 parts and he talks about both sets of accusations after doing all the nessecary research as to whether or not michael jackson did it

      It’s so sad and so harmful that people like you defend Michael Jackson, merely because of who he was.

      No innocent man pays millions of dollars to the families of children he didn’t molest. The first boy, not Gavin, who testified at the trial, said he and Jackson slept in the same bedroom for a year, and his mother testified to the same. What do you think was going on every night for a year?

      There was ample evidence that Jackson was guilty, and the jury instructions said Jackson did not even have to have touched the boys. All that had to be shown, was that he did it for sexual gratification (by being next to the boys). What the hell do you think a grown, 44 year-old man, is doing in bed, next to a bed, on top of a bed, with boys on the floor, or vice versa…if not for sexual gratification? Adults, who have their childhoods stolen, DON’T NEED TO SLEEP WITH LITTLE BOYS. They might coach sports, or go to the movies with them (even that’s weird). But they don’t have pajama parties and sleep with them in the same bedroom every night for a year (I am talking about the first accuser, not Gavin).

      If it had been any other 44 year-old man sleeping in bed, outside a bed, whatever, in a bedroom every night with little boys, he would have been convicted, and probably condemned by you. If any other 44 year-old man had been sitting in an interview, holding the hand of a 13 year-old boy, you would have seen it for what it is. But because it was Michael Jackson, you and many millions of other fans of his, excuse him and excuse his picture book of naked little boys found in his belongings.

        “Michael Jackson’s relationship with a 13-year-old boy more than a decade ago was revealed in court Monday by the boy’s estranged mother.
        The woman, whose son was allegedly molested by Jackson in 1993, testified that shortly after meeting the King of Pop, he showered the family with expensive gifts and first-class trips before making a tearful plea to allow the boy to sleep with him.

        “He was sobbing, crying, shaking, trembling,” the mother testified of Jackson’s breakdown one evening in March 1993, during a trip to Las Vegas. The woman testified that Jackson then said, “We’re a family,” asking her why she wouldn’t allow her son to be with the singer. “I said, ‘He is with you,’ and he said, ‘But in my bedroom. … Why can’t he sleep in my bed? There’s nothing going on. Why don’t you trust me?'”

        “The woman said she relented, allowing her son to join Jackson in his room at the Mirage that night. Jackson rewarded her for her trust the next night with a gold Cartier bracelet. From that point on, the woman testified, her son and Jackson were inseparable. She allowed him to sleep in the singer’s bedroom at Neverland Ranch, where she knew there was only one bed.

        She testified that she also let him stay in Jackson’s hotel room when they joined him on trips to Florida to visit Walt Disney World, and to Monaco for the World Music Awards. And she said she let Jackson sleep in her son’s bedroom, behind closed doors, during some 30 nights in 1993 when he stayed in her Santa Monica home.

        “The alleged victim received a $15.3 million dollar annuity, while the parents each received $1.5 million in cash, and Jackson paid their legal fees. Attorney Larry Feldman, who represented the family from the 1993 case, also represents the family of Jackson’s current accuser.”

        • Alethea says:

          “A man who says he was sexually molested by Michael Jackson as a boy broke down on the witness stand Monday as he described three separate tickling games he engaged in with the King of Pop that he says escalated into unwanted groping and ended in hush money.

          “There was money given after every tickle thing,” said the 24-year-old witness, the son of Jackson’s former personal maid. He described the first incident in 1987 or 1988, at age 7 1/2, culminating with Jackson slipping him a $100 bill and the admonishment: “Don’t tell your mom.”
          When asked to identify Jackson in court, the witness pointed to the defense table and said, “He’s the light-complected gentleman over there.”

          Jackson has never been charged in any of the previous alleged cases. However, the judge has allowed prosecutors to enter evidence that may establish what they believe is the singer’s criminal pattern — such as cuddling, playing and tickling — that leads to the alleged sexual offenses.

          “This took a lot of counseling to get over. Just to let you know,” he said softly, adding later that the alleged incidents put him in therapy from the age of 13 to 18. He is now married and works as an auto parts salesman and director of a youth-mentoring program.”

          I watched every single minute of that trial (I was also at the courthouse to support the victims). Seasoned defense attorneys, who sat in on that trial, said this man was very credible.

        • Alethea says:

          and there’s a reason that the guy (by the time of the Jackson trial) was estranged from his mother. He felt a lot of anger that she did not protect him from Michael Jackson.
