The alleged Jerry Sandusky victim at the center of Mike McQueary's testimony has at last revealed himself—so he can sue. Sandusky reportedly assaulted "Victim 2" in university showers when the victim was a child. Now, as an adult, the victim intends to sue Penn State "and others," his lawyers say. "Penn State has now admitted that its top officials could have, and should have, prevented these acts," the lawyers say in a statement, according to the Express-Times.

The lawyers say they have gathered "overwhelming evidence" in the case. They have released two voicemails from Sandusky to the victim that they say show him "attempting to exert control over our client even as his arrest for child sexual abuse became imminent." The calls, which you can listen to here, were each reportedly left in September 2011. "There is nothing really to hide," Sandusky asserts in one; in the other he offers to take the alleged victim to a Penn State game. He ends each call by saying, "I love you."
