Sandusky speaks to NBC, interview to air tonight at 10pm on "Rock Center"

NEW YORK (AP) - Former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky is telling NBC that he is innocent of child sex abuse
charges that shocked the sports world and resulted in the firing of
coach Joe Paterno.

In a telephone interview with Bob Costas for NBC News' "Rock
Center," airing Monday night, Sandusky also denies accusations
that he is a pedophile.

Sandusky, who founded a charity for disadvantaged youth,
acknowledges that he showered with some boys after workouts and
shouldn't have done so.

Paterno was fired last Wednesday for failing to do enough about
a 2002 report alleging that Sandusky raped a young boy in the Penn
State football showers.

The Associated Press has made several efforts to reach Sandusky
by phone and through his attorney, but messages haven't been
returned.
