STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – A new accuser is suing Jerry Sandusky, Penn State and a charity the former assistant coach founded, saying he was sexually abused about six years ago.
The Centre Daily Times reported Wednesday (http://bit.ly/WcGbY8 ) that the case was filed in Philadelphia last month by Williamsport attorney Bret Southard.
The lawsuit claims Sandusky abused the boy at the time of a shopping trip in 2008 or 2009, and after they attended a Penn State game in 2008 against Coastal Carolina University.
Southard tells the paper his client represents a new case. Penn State previously settled 26 cases for nearly $60 million.
The paper says the lawsuit describes the boy as a participant in The Second Mile, the charity for at-risk children Sandusky founded.
