A 22-year-old Dauphin County man is suing Penn State, The Second Mile, Jerry Sandusky and several other former Penn State administrators on the grounds that Sandusky abused him in a pool on the Penn State campus while others covered up the incident, according to court documents filed Monday.
The man, only identified as “John Doe,” filed the documents through his attorney Don Bailey in federal court in Scranton. The filing states that certain Penn State officials “engaged in a cover-up that led to severe and permanent emotion and other injuries suffered by the plaintiff.”
According to the filing, John Doe was was about 14 when Sandusky brought him to an Olympic-sized pool on the Penn State campus with other boys during a Second Mile camp. According to the filing, Sandusky grabbed the boy’s genitals under water, causing the boy to recoil.
Sandusky was convicted in June on 45 counts of sexually abusing boys he met through The Second Mile. He was sentenced in October to serve 30 to 60 years in prison.
The Dauphin County man that filed suit Monday did not testify during Sandusky's trial.
