Good Morning America to have exclusive interview with the mother of Sandusky victim #1

WXYZ - George Stephanopoulos will have an exclusive interview with the mother of Penn State Sex Scandal Victim #1 on GMA tomorrow morning.

The first victim who claimed Jerry Sandusky molested him met Sandusky at the Second Mile.

The Second Mile is a charity founded by Sandusky dedicated to helping troubled boys. Sandusky allegedly used the charity to meet young boys.

Victim 1 was 11 or 12 years old when he met Sandusky in 2005 or 2006. He frequently became a house guest at Sandusky's residence in College Township, Center County, Pennsylvania.

The grand jury was told that Sandusky allegedly indecently fondled this victim and performed oral sex on him more than 20 times between 2007 and 2008. The former coach also allegedly had the victim perform oral sex on him once during that time period.

Sandusky would take the boy to professional and college sporting events and showered him with gifts, including clothes and cash. This victim would sleep over at Sandusky's house and the former coach had a habit of going into the boy's basement room at bedtime to "crack his back." The victim described this as Sandusky getting onto the bed he was lying on and rolling under him; when they were face-to-face Sandusky would run his arms up and down the boy's back and "crack it."

The victim ceased contact with Sandusky when he became a freshman in high school but Sandusky would routinely contact him at his high school.

Sandusky is charged with molesting eight boys in a 15-year span.

In the week since the grand jury released its report, Joe Paterno and Penn State University President Graham Spanier have been fired and two other top university officials also are out.

Paterno is not a target of the criminal investigation.
