    That's what several of us were saying even before the trial....I thought he began assaulting children as an older teen....the family's recreation center was his first good hunting ground and he set out to create another one with the 2nd Mile....you don't become a predator overnight, at 50 or due to opportunity....he created his own opportunities....with help and other closed, not-wanting-to-see=what-I'm-seeing-eyes........mostly because these enablers got some type of advantage out of covering up for him....kept him as a great coach...a provider...., etc.

    Well, after reading on Facebook today, I would say this is an excellent question.

    There is a site on Facebook for those of us who grew up in the Washington, Pa area. This morning I read a post that on KDKA-TV (a Pittsburgh station) a man, 57 years old was interviewed (on Oct. 29) and claimed he was molested by Jerry at the Brownson House when the man was 11 years old. His name was not given and his face wasn't shown according to the post I read.

    If my math is good enough this would mean Jerry was around 22 when this happened (if it did happen) and that would be about 1966, possibily as he graduated from Penn State. I wasn't living in the town then, but I could imagine Jerry would return to his home town maybe for a summer visit as many of us would.

    I am not familiar with a kid or guy named Ernie or Ern. I think perhaps Jerry would make that up for his book. I didn't hang out a lot at the Brownson facility, since I lived on the other side of town. But I was familiar with the place and Jerry's remarkable parents. They were great people.

    Hmmm, didn't see your post. I just posted the same story. I got it from a Facebook page set up for those of us who grew up in Washington, Pa. I find this news very sad. And, creepy. Thanks for your post.

    Some of the comments left at the link are just sickening. Must be perverts.

    I am not surprised that Jerry Sandusky started molesting children at the Brownson House. So many children go through there, which would give Sandusky access to them. I suspect there are way more victims.

    It's called the Bronson House. The news story had it wrong it's not Brownson.

    I happen to look at Freeh Report and coaches and staffs often saw Jerry Sandusky showering with boys prior to the May 1998 incident. I have to wonder if Joe Paterno saw Sandusky showering with boys.

    Freeh Report
    http://www.thefreehreportonpsu.com/REPORT_FINAL_071212.pdf


    There is also this recent article.

    Jerry Sandusky scandal one year later: A lot has happened in a year, and there's more to come
    http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2012/11/jerry_sandusky_scandal_one_yea.html

    Changes to the law likely won’t help many of the men who have recently come forward to say they were abused as far back as the 1950s, long before Sandusky was an established pillar of the Happy Valley community.

    He is isolated from others. Isolation can drive a person into madness. Sandusky likes being around people and when he is isolated from others, he will go nuts.

    If men are coming forward to say that Jerry Sandusky abused them in the 1950s, it is likely that Sandusky started to molest people as early as his teens or even tweens.

    Since we have some information about 1998 and after. I wonder if there were cover ups before 1998.

    Posting this article here since it concerns old cases:

    Pennsylvania House fight over statute of limitations for child sex victims intensifies

    http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2013/03/pa_house_fight_over_statute_of.html

    A top midstate legislator said Monday he will not support efforts to create a temporary "window" for victims of long-ago child sex abuse cases to bring new civil suits against their alleged abusers or the institutions that employed them.

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Ron Marsico's statement, coming after closed-door party caucuses on two amendments to create the so-called window, immediately cast doubt on whether supporters can force their proposal through the General Assembly this session................

    Supporters argue that a belated ability to sue validates victims who have wrestled for years with their abuse, exposes perpetrators who may still be out there, and helps assure an end to years of cover-up by churches, school districts, camps and other entities..............

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/jerry-sandusky-offered-victim-contract/story?id=16539947

    Even though 1998 is the "magic number" there is ample evidence just from known victims prior to 1998.

    So why was 1998 selected as the start point? It would seem to me the closer you get to the beginning, the less confusion there would be.
    Analogous to a flashlight shining. The further from the light, the more diffuse it is.

    Well, there has been no suggestion that anyone in LE, DPW, or PSU knew about any incident prior to 1998. Sandusky was active before that, but unknown.
