STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — ABC will interview the young man whose sexual-abuse allegations against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky launched the investigation that produced criminal charges against him.
Attorney Michael Boni represents the teenager known in court papers as Victim 1. He said Wednesday that ABC landed the first interview with his client, who has a book coming out this fall.
The New York Post was first to report the ABC exclusive.
Sandusky was accused of fondling Victim 1 and performing oral sex on him multiple times beginning when he was 11 years old. Sandusky was barred from the boy's central Pennsylvania high school in 2009 after his mother alerted school officials.
Sandusky was convicted of abuse involving 10 boys and awaits sentencing. He maintains his innocence.
ABC hasn't returned a message seeking comment.
