New accuser files lawsuit against Sandusky

The first lawsuit has been filed against former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, and the accuser is not among the eight alleged victims listed in the grand jury presentment released late last month.

The lawsuit alleges Sandusky sexually abused a young boy more than 100 times and then threatened the boy's family to keep him quiet. The alleged abuse took place at Sandusky's State College home, at Penn State's football facilities and on at least one Penn State bowl trip.

Sandusky is alleged to have met the boy, identified in the lawsuit only as John Doe, through his Second Mile charity in 1992. The abuse began shortly thereafter and lasted until 1996.

Expect more lawsuits to be filed against the former Penn State defensive coordinator, who maintains his innocence.
