(WSCR) According to a report from Sara Ganim of the Patriot News, Matt Sandusky, through his attorney Andrew Shubin, said that he met with prosecutors this week to say for the first time that he is a victim of Jerry Sandusky, his adopted father.

The 33-year-old was adopted by Jerry and Dottie Sandusky as an adult, after going to live with the family as a foster child.

“This has been an extremely painful experience for Matt and he has asked us to convey his request that the media respect his privacy. There will be no further comment,” Shubin said in a statement.
