(Newser) – Matt Sandusky appears to want no association with the adoptive father he says sexually abused him, including one by name. The son of Jerry Sandusky has asked the Centre County Court in Pennsylvania to change his name, along with those of his wife and four children, the AP reports. No reason for the change has been made available since the file is sealed, reports CNN. Matt Sandusky is one of six children Jerry Sandusky adopted, and the only one to allege abuse. His request comes as a $60 million settlement has been approved for the majority of Sandusky's victims, the Daily Mail reports.
