Sandusky Victim Says He Contemplated Suicide

The young man whose claims of abuse began the criminal investigation that put Jerry Sandusky in prison says he contemplated suicide because authorities took so long to prosecute the former Penn State assistant football coach.

Aaron Fisher is speaking out publicly by name for the first time. He tells ABC in an interview airing Friday that the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office had told him it needed more victims before Sandusky would be charged.

Fisher says the long delay made him increasingly desperate. He says he thought “maybe it would be easier to take myself out of the equation.”

Fisher was known as Victim 1. He testified at Sandusky’s trial. Sandusky was sentenced last week to at least 30 years in prison for molesting Fisher and nine other boys.
