Victim 2, the boy Mike McQueary saw with Jerry Sandusky in the Penn State locker room shower, has come forward and is now represented by lawyers who plan to sue the University for the sexual abuse Victim 2 suffered.  University officials are accused of not doing anything to stop Sandusky from continuing to abuse boys, after McQueary first told them he witnessed inappropriate behavior between Sandusky and Victim 2.

The attorneys for Victim 2 also released two phone calls Sandusky made to him before he was indicted.

September 12, 2011 Sandusky's Voice:  Um. I am probably not going to be able to get a hold of anybody.  Um. Uh. Probably ought to just go forward. Uh. I would be very firm and express my feelings, uh, upfront. Um. But, uh, you know, there is nothing really to hide so. Um. If you want, give me a call. You can call me on my other cell phone or on this one, either one so. Alright, take care. Love you. Uh. Hope you get this message. Thanks."

September 19, 2011 Sandusky's Voice: "…Just calling to see you know whether you had any interest in going to the Penn State game this Saturday. Uh. If you could get back to me and let me know, uh, I would appreciate it and when you get this message, uh, give me a call and I hope to talk to you later. Thanks. I love you."

STATEMENT OF LEGAL TEAM FOR SANDUSKY VICTIM NUMBER 2

July 26, 2012

To protect our client's privacy and in response to several recent media inquiries, we confirm that our legal team, which includes Joel Feller and Matt Casey of the Philadelphia law firm of Ross Feller Casey, LLP, and State College-based attorneys Justine Andronici and Andrew Shubin, represents the person identified as Victim 2.

Our client suffered extensive sexual abuse over many years both before and after the 2001 incident Michael McQueary witnessed in the Penn State Lasch building shower. Penn State has now admitted and there is no longer any question that its top officials could have and should have prevented these acts. Jerry Sandusky's abuse of Victim 2 and other children is a direct result of a conspiracy to conceal Sandusky's conduct and the decisions by top Penn State officials that facilitated and enabled his access to victims. We intend to file a civil lawsuit against Penn State University and others and to hold them accountable for the egregious and reckless conduct that facilitated the horrific abuse our client suffered.

Our client has to live the rest of his life not only dealing with the effects of Sandusky's childhood sexual abuse, but also with the knowledge that many powerful adults, including those at the highest levels of Penn State, put their own interests and the interests of a child predator above their legal obligations to protect him.

We have conducted an extensive investigation and gathered overwhelming evidence regarding the details of the abuse he suffered. This evidence includes numerous voicemails left by Sandusky in the fall of 2011 as the likelihood of his indictment became apparent. Today, we are releasing two of those voicemails. As these messages indicate, Sandusky was attempting to exert control over our client even as his arrest for child sexual abuse became imminent. They can be heard by visiting the Ross Feller Casey, LLP website at www.rossfellercasey.com. Due to the sensitive nature of the ongoing criminal and civil cases, we will not make additional comments at this time.

Our legal team also represents multiple other Sandusky sexual abuse victims including, but not limited to, those referred to as Victim 3, Victim 7 and Victim 10.
