PHILADELPHIA (CN) - John Doe A claims former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky sexually abused him more than 100 times after meeting him through Sandusky's charity. He also says the coach was "threaten(ing) to harm plaintiff's family if plaintiff told anyone about the abuse."
Doe, who now lives outside of Pennsylvania, claims Sandusky molested multiple victims, since the 1970s, at Second Mile and at Penn State, which gave him access to young boys.
Doe, represented by attorneys in Minnesota and Pennsylvania, sued The Second Mile, Sandusky and The Pennsylvania State University in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas.
It's the second complaint this week against The Second Mile. John Doe No. 4 suedthe charity this week to stop it from dissipating its assets.
Sandusky worked as a Penn State football coach from 1969 until he retired in 1999. In 1977, he founded The Second Mile, a charity for children with absent or dysfunctional families, according to the complaint.
Doe says he met Sandusky through The Second Mile in 1992, when he was 10. He says Sandusky "recruited, groomed and coerced plaintiff, showering him with gifts, travel and privileges."
He claims Sandusky sexually molested him more than 100 times at his State College home, at Penn State and Second Mile facilities and on out-of-town bowl game trips.
The complaint states: "Between 1992 and 1996, Sandusky sexually abused John Doe A. John Doe A was too young to have given any consent, and Sandusky's abuse was in fact unwanted and has caused substantial harm to John Doe A. John Doe is presently under age 30.
"Sandusky sexually abused John Doe A over one hundred times.
"The sexual abuse occurred on multiple occasions and at multiple locations within Pennsylvania and outside of Pennsylvania; in the facilities of Penn State, particularly the football coach's locker room; at times within Philadelphia County; at facilities out of state connected with a Penn State bowl game; and at the Sandusky home.
"Sandusky threatened plaintiff and threatened to harm plaintiff's family if plaintiff told anyone about the abuse. This threat operated to silence plaintiff and caused him to not be able to take any action until recently.
"Plaintiff did not discover Penn State's or Second Mile's fraud until recently when the news of the grand jury report became public."
In early November, Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly and State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan filed a grand jury report, charging Sandusky with the sexual assault of eight boys between 1994 and 2009, while he was a coach for Penn State and after he retired from coaching. The 40 counts include various sex crimes, including involuntary, deviate sexual intercourse, according to the complaint.
Doe claims Sandusky's abuse dates back to the 1970s.
The complaint adds: "Sandusky molested multiple victims through his activities with Second Mile and Penn State, dating back to the 1970's. His molestation was enabled by the negligent oversight of Sandusky by Second Mile and Penn State.
"On multiple occasions, Sandusky's interest in, among other things, showering with young boys, and secluding himself alone with boys to permit sexual access to the young boys, was known, or should have been known, to officials with Penn State and Second Mile.
