A Penn State University policeman once told Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach who has been charged with sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years, that he should not shower with young boys, according to testimony provided on the fourth day of Sandusky’s trial.
The testimony was provided by Ronald Schreffler, who, as a Penn State police investigator, spoke with Sandusky in 1998. Schreffler had received a report from the mother of an 11-year-old boy who said he had showered with Sandusky in a locker room on the Penn State campus.
The boy, now 25, also testified Thursday, saying he met Sandusky at the former coach’s Second Mile youth charity for children from troubled homes. The accuser said he felt uncomfortable being naked with Sandusky, who, he said, urged the boy to take a shower after a workout even though they had not sweated that much.
