'Victim 6' Sues Sandusky, Penn State, Second Mile

Posted: Updated:

One of the young men who testified against Jerry Sandusky last summer is suing the former assistant coach, Penn State and the charity for young people that Sandusky started.

"Victim 6" sued Tuesday in federal court in Philadelphia, claiming Sandusky's behavior was "ratified" by The Second Mile and Penn State and that the organizations acted with reckless indifference to his rights.

Sandusky is serving a lengthy state prison term after being convicted of sexual abuse of Victim 6 and nine other boys.

Penn State is declining comment and messages weren't immediately returned by a Second Mile official or Sandusky's civil lawyers.

Victim 6 testified that Sandusky, calling himself "the Tickle Monster," grabbed him inside a university shower in March 1998. His mother's complaint triggered a police investigation but no charges.
