The Penn State scandal is, at its core, a story about young boys whom an institution placed on train tracks, said Andrew Shubin, the attorney who represented nine men whom former football coach Jerry Sandusky sexually abused.
A proverbial train ran over those boys, now in their late teens through their 50s, he said during an interview Thursday.
“The men I represented, and I would hazard a guess almost all of the victims in this case, and maybe all victims everywhere, never felt for a minute that Jerry Sandusky would be held accountable for what he did,” he said.
Mr. Shubin represented men identified at Sandusky’s June 2012 trial as Victims 2, 3, 7 and 10. He also represented Sandusky’s adopted son and four men whose identities have not been made public.
