Travis Weaver is the first alleged victim to come forward and tell his story on television. Weaver claims he was sexually abused by Jerry Sandusky. He talks tonight, exclusively to NBC's Kate Snow on Rock Center at 10 p.m on NBC10.
Weaver has testified in front of a grand jury, although not the grand jury probe that led to the current trial and Weaver was not called as a witness in the current trial. He is suing Sandusky and Penn State University.
Weaver told Snow (@tvkatesnow) that Jerry Sandusky sexually abused him more than one hundred times over a period of four years, starting in 1992 when he was just 10 years old.
