LaVar Arrington Apologizes to Sandusky Accuser Known as “Victim #4″

Yesterday marked the beginning of the trial of former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky, who faces 52 charges related to his alleged sexual abuse of young boys over the course of many years. One of Sandusky’s accusers—known as “Victim #4″—took the stand yesterday and recounted his alleged abuse and other interactions with Sandusky and with other members of the Penn State football community. He mentioned LaVar Arrington’s name a few times during the course of the testimony. Today, The Washington Post published a piece written by Arrington—a former linebacker at Penn State—in which he apologizes for not being more concerned with what was bothering the boy at the time the two knew each other.
