Jerry Sandusky claims he only 'horsed around' with boys

Jerry Sandusky, the man at the center of the Penn State sex scandal, has denied allegations that he's a pedophile.Speaking to NBC's Bob Costas last night, the former assistant football coach did admit, however, that he was involved in "horseplay" with boys. "I have horsed around with kids," Sandusky said. "I have showered after workouts, I have hugged them, and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact." Sandusky is already accused of sexually abusing eight boys in the course of 15 years. Now, the New York Times says investigators are looking at 10 other suspected cases of abuse. Sandusky's attorney says he expects some of the alleged victims to deny they were molested.
