The accuser claims Sandusky gave him whiskey inside his office on Penn State's campus, before inappropriately touching. The alleged incident only happened once, but his lawyer told NBC News that his client “continues to suffer severe psychological damage" and is attempting to seek help for it.
Attorney Charles Schmidt says his client met Sandusky through The Second Mile Charity and would talk to Sandusky about his mother, who died a year before he was allegedly sexually assaulted.
The lawsuit — which was filed in Philadelphia County — is the second civil suit filed against Sandusky, Penn State and The Second Mile.
Schmidt says he expects papers to be served within the next few weeks.
