    The alleged victim is 19 now, but was 12 at the time, Harrisburg attorney Chuck Schmidt told the paper. 

    According to the attorney, the man claims the abuse happened in 2004 when he was a camper with The Second Mile, a charity founded by Sandusky. 

    Schmidt told the paper that his client has had a difficult life "and we have reason to believe that much of it was caused by that incident."

    The 19-year-old plans to file suit against Penn State, The Second Mile and Sandusky.

    Sandusky is scheduled to appear in court for his preliminary hearing on Tuesday, December 13. The former Penn State assistant football coach is charged with 40 counts of molesting eight boys over 15 years.

    At least six of the eight victims whose stories were part of the Grand Jury report, plan to testify at that hearing. The hearing will be open to the public, although space is limited. The Centre County Court of Common Pleas set up a lottery to determine who gets seated.
