Jerry Sanduskys Full Interview With Bob Costas [Video]
The man at the center of the Penn State University scandal, Jerry Sandusky, decided to do an interview with Bob Costas on NBC's 'Rock Center'.
I have no idea what he was trying to accomplish, but if it was to creep everyone out, job well done!
Check out the full interview and transcript below.
After Sandusky opened by saying that he is innocent of the charges against him, Costas said, “Innocent?”, and Sandusky immediately caved.
“Well, I could say that, you know, 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. But, um… uh … So, if you look at it that way … uh … there are things that … that … uh … wouldn’t … uh, you know, would be accurate.”
Later Costas asked him if he was sexually attracted to young boys, and Sandusky takes nearly 20 seconds to say “no”.
Costas: Are you a pedophile?
Costas: Are you sexually attracted to young boys? To underage boys?
Sandusky: Am I sexually attracted to underage boys?
Sandusky: Sexually attracted? You know, I enjoy young people. I love to be around them. I … but, no, I am not sexually attracted to young boys.
Sandusky also explained what happened when Mike McQueary allegedly witnessed him raping a boy in the shower.
“OK, we were showering and … and horsing around. And he (the boy) actually turned all the showers on and was actually sliding across the floor and um and we were, as I recall, possibly, like, snapping a towel and horseplay.”
