Sandusky proclaims innocence in NBC interview

    Jerry Sandusky has denied abuse allegations and says he is not sexually attracted to young boys.

    The former Penn State football assistant coach said on NBC News’ “Rock Center” Monday night that there was no abuse and that any activities in a campus shower with a boy were just horseplay, not molestation.

    Asked if he had done anything wrong, he said “I shouldn’t have showered with those kids.”

    Sandusky’s attorney says he expects some of the alleged victims to come forward and deny they were abused.
