Sandusky victim tells of abuse in new book, ‘Silent No More’

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A young man whose sexual-abuse claims triggered the investigation of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky says in a new book Sandusky’s wife once called down to the basement while he was being attacked and Sandusky told her he was busy.

    Aaron Fisher writes in “Silent No More” that Dottie Sandusky asked her husband to fix a table upstairs. He says Jerry Sandusky told her he was fixing an air hockey table and she dropped the subject.

    The Associated Press bought an early copy of the book, being published next week.

    Dottie Sandusky maintains she never saw her husband behave inappropriately with children.

    Fisher was described in court records as Victim 1. He’s speaking out on television Friday.

    Jerry Sandusky was convicted in June of abusing 10 boys, including Fisher. He says he’s innocent.
