If you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland, contact Victim Support Scotland or Victim Support NI for help.
The 41-year-old Sandusky is being held on $200,000 bail and is prohibited from any contact with minors.
Sandusky's father, Jerry, was convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys and was sentenced to at least 30 years in prison at the age of 68 -- essentially a life sentence.
Victim-blaming attitudes marginalize the victim/survivor and make it harder to come forward and report the abuse.
If the survivor knows that you or society blames her for the abuse, s/he will not feel safe or comfortable coming forward and talking to you.
