New accuser comes forward in Penn State abuse case

Another accuser has come forward claiming he was sexually abused by former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky.

The man, who is now 19, says Sandusky gave him alcohol on the university campus and then molested him when he was 12. The teenager says he met Sandusky through his children's charity, Second Mile.

Sandusky has been charged with allegedly abusing eight other boys who were also involved in the charity, but has denied the claims.

Brooklyn native and head coach Joe Paterno was fired in the wake of the scandal. He has said that he wishes he did more about the allegations.
