PSU Offers Therapy to Alleged Abuse Victims

The school says it will provide free counseling to alleged victims of Jerry Sandusky.

Penn State says it will provide free child-abuse counseling services to alleged victims of former university assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
The university on Wednesday described the arrangement with Praesidium Inc., an abuse risk management company, as a way to fulfill a commitment made by the school president and trustees' chairman after Sandusky was arrested in November.

Sandusky is on house arrest awaiting a mid-May trial on charges he sexually abused 10 boys over 15 years. He denies the allegations.
The counseling services are confidential and will be provided by counselors from outside Penn State. It was not clear Wednesday how many people, if any, will take the university up on its offer.
