We commend this brave survivor with whom we stand, John Doe A, for being the first to speak up and out in bringing a civil lawsuit against his abuser, Jerry Sandusky, and the institutions that enabled Sandusky, Penn State University and The Second Mile. By bringing this lawsuit, this courageous survivor is bringing hope, healing and power to other Sandusky victims who may be living in silence, shame or fear. This lawsuit represents an effort to expose institutional failures in child protection. The outrageous and reckless behavior of these institutions and their officials in failing to protect children and allow a known child predator unfettered access to children for years, allowed numerous children, including John Doe A, to be raped by Sandusky. We are very proud to stand with this survivor today and work on his behalf to protect other children in the future so this never happens again.
