US ex-coach hits back at sex abuse charges - Americas - Al Jazeera English

US ex-coach hits back at sex abuse charges - Americas - Al Jazeera English

Jerry Sandusky, the former Pennsylvania State University football coach charged with child sex abuse, has admitted to showering with young boys, but says he did so without any intention of sexual contact.

In comments made to a US television news channel, Sandusky said he had "horsed around with kids", hugged them and "touched their legs without intent of sexual contact", but denied charges that he was a paedophile.

A former defensive co-ordinator for Penn State head coach Joe Paterno, Sandusky was charged earlier this month with 40 counts of sexually abusing eight boys, and is currently free on a $100,000 bond.

According to a grand jury report, Sandusky is accused of having sexual encounters with young boys in his home, at hotels and in the Penn State locker rooms. The allegations date back to 1994.

When pressed in the interview with NBC news to articulate what exactly he had done wrong, Sandusky said: "I shouldn't have showered with those kids."

Snip

We have a winner for the lamest excuse ever " I shouldn't have showered with those kids" Need I go into the accusation of a assistant coach hearing "rhythmic slapping?" Do I have to paint a word picture of what that meant? I hope you are not that dense gentle reader. I hope his lawyer is a hell of lot smarter than the coach, or Mr. Sandusky is going to be in a world of hurt when he goes to trial.
