State College, Pennsylvania (CNN) — Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky insisted in an interview Monday night he is “innocent” of charges that he sexually abused young boys, denying to NBC’s Bob Costas that he’s a pedophile.
In a telephone interview with NBC’s “Rock Center With Brian Williams,” Sandusky admitted that some details in the graphic 23-page grand jury report released earlier this month are correct.
“I could say I have done some of those things,” he said. “I have horsed around with kids I have showered (with) after workouts. I have hugged them, and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact.”
