Matt Sandusky, son of convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky, opens up to Oprah Winfrey in an exclusive tell-all interview which will be broadcast on July 17.

Matt Sandusky, son of convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky, opens up to Oprah Winfrey in an exclusive tell-all interview.

The younger Sandusky talks about manipulation and control he went through, per The State College Centre Daily Times' Matt Carroll:  

"Matt Sandusky is sharing his story of sexual abuse by his adopted father and convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky in a prime-time television special. 

"Sandusky sat down with Oprah Winfrey, and the interview will be broadcast next week on the Oprah Winfrey Network. 

"The Network said in a statement that Matt Sandusky describes grooming, methodical control and manipulation he experienced at the hands of his father, and responds to an accusation Dottie Sandusky made that he lied about the abuse.  

"Jerry Sandusky was convicted in June 2012 for sexually abusing 10 young boys and was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in state prison. Matt Sandusky's abuse did not result in charges, but he came forward during the trial to tell prosecutors he had been abused. 

"Matt Sandusky broke his silence in January when he shared his story in 'Happy Valley,' a 100-minute-long film that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. 

"'My role in the film was to share the perspective of a survivor, to give survivors a vote,' Sandusky said at the time in an interview with the Daily Centre Times. 

"'There were many victims in this case who came forward for the trial -- I have immense respect for their strength -- and because of those guys, I had the courage to come forward to the authorities to tell -- the truth,' he said.

"His interview with Winfrey will air at 9 p.m., July 17." 

The Hollywood Reporter's (via Yahoo) Ryan Gajewski says Matt Sandusky reveals he was first molested by his father when he was just 10 years old: 

"Matthew Sandusky, the adopte son of former Penn State assistant football coach and convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky, is speaking out to Oprah Winfrey about what he endured.

"In an interview airing on OWN's Oprah Prime on July 17, Matthew tells Winfrey that Jerry began molesting him when he was ten years old. 'You thought you were the only one,' Winfrey says to Matthew.

"At the time of his adopted father's 2012 trial, Matthew released a statement through his attorneys saying that Jerry had molested him. Jerry was convicted of 45 charges of sexual abuse of young boys and was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison. Matthew was not one of the ten boys whom Jerry was convicted of abusing, although Matthew did receive a financial settlement from Penn State and a third-party law firm.

"'At bedtime, his ritual began,' Matthew tells Winfrey. In the interview, Matthew responds to his adopted mother Dottie Sandusky's accusations that he lied about being abused by Jerry. Matthew also discusses the foundation he started to help abuse victims."

The Philadelphia Inquirer revealed two weeks ago that a report from Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane slated for a late June 2014 release says the Jerry Sandusky investigation was a reasonable one: 

"A report into the three-year investigation of serial sex abuser Jerry Sandusky found that prosecutors, facing a shaky intitial witness, had reason to take their time to build a case with multiple victims, according to sources familiar with the document.

"Though raising questions about delays in the inquiry, the report, scheduled to be released Monday, does not fault prosecutors for using a grand jury to investigate Sandusky, the sources said. It also found no evidence that politics or a lack of resources influenced the investigation. 

"The report notes proescutors from the state Attorney General's Office felt strongly that testimony from the first boy to accuse Sandusky would likely not have been enough to convict the former assistant football coach at Pennsylvania State University.

"It does question some decisions along the way. For instance, it notes that prosecutors took too long to take certain investigative steps, including gathering reports on Sandusky from other law enforcement agencies, the sources said.

"The report was commissioned and will be released by Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane, who was elected in 2012 largely on a campaign that questioned whether one of her predecssors in the job, Gov. Corbett, deliberately slowed the investigation for political purposes.

"In her bid for office, Kane said,'Instead of using a grand jury in the Jerry Sandusky case, I would have had him arrested after the first victims came forward.'"
