A defiant Jerry Sandusky denied being a pedophile Monday, breaking his silence to profess his innocence in the Penn State scandal that toppled football legend Joe Paterno.
Sandusky, 67, charged with 40 counts of child sex abuse, admitted to NBC’s Bob Costas to a serious lapse in judgement.
“I shouldn’t have showered with those kids,” said Sandusky referring to the eight boys he’s accused of molesting in incidents dating from 1994 to 2008.
Still, he denied there was anything sexual about it.
“I say that I am innocent of those charges,” Sandusky told Costas an interview that aired Monday night on “Rock Center,” NBC’s new news magazine show.
