FROM ABC NEWS: Jerry Sandusky's sex abuse trial ended today with an emotional plea from the prosecutor to convict the former Penn State football coach and then a bombshell revelation that his adopted son had told prosecutors he was willing to testify against Sandusky.
While they met behind closed doors, Matt Sandusky -- who had defended the man who adopted him throughout the investigation -- issued a statement saying that he had been prepared to tell the jury that he had been sexually abused too.
"Matt Sandusky, one of Jerry Sandusky's adopted children, asked us to confirm with you... that he was prepared to testify truthfully as a Commonwealth witness," said the statement issued by lawyers Andrew Shubin and Justine Andronici.
"During the trial, Matt Sandusky contacted us and requested our advice and assistance in arranging a meeting with prosecutors to disclose for the first time in this case that he is a victim of Jerry Sandusky's abuse. At Matt's request, we immediately arranged a meeting between him and the prosecutors and investigators," the statement said.
