On July 17th at 9 p.m., Oprah Winfrey’s OWN channel will air her interview with Matthew Sandusky, the adopted son of serial child sexual abuser Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted of 45 counts of sexual abuse two years ago.

“Oprah speaks exclusively with Matthew Sandusky, the adopted son of former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who tells the untold story of his childhood sexual abuse,” said OWN in an announcement. “In his first television interview since Jerry’s 2012 conviction on 45 counts of child sexual abuse, Matthew reveals never-before-heard details of the sexual abuse he experienced as a child at the hands of his adopted father, and why he is choosing to speak out now.”




Matthew Sandusky had told police that his father sexually abused him starting at age 10.

He explains to Oprah, "At bedtime, his ritual began."

"Did the ritual happen every night?" she responds. We almost don't want to know the answer.
