WJAC-TV: Man Linking Sandusky to Pedophile Ring takes Accusations to National Audience
STATE COLLEGE – The man who claims that Jerry Sandusky was connected to a pedophile ring with Philadelphia businessmen decades ago is taking his accusations to a national audience on Friday afternoon.
In a special edition of “Dr. Phil” set to air at 3 p.m. on WJAC-TV, Greg Bucceroni claims that he was propositioned with $200 to have sex with Jerry Sandusky in connection to an alleged child pornography ring connected to three states.
In an on-camera interview in Philadelphia, Bucceroni told WJAC-TV that a well-known businessman lured him into the alleged child pornography ring by offering him cash and drugs in exchange for sex acts with adult men.
“He said that the coach from the Second Mile was interested in me and a couple of other kids. He wanted us to come up. He wanted to meet us,” said Bucceroni. “When I get up to Sandusky, I’m trying to feel out who’s there with my best interests. And, who’s there to kind of like exploit me? That’s how I’m feeling. I’m kind of like a stripper at a bachelor party.”
Bucceroni said he didn’t engage in any sex acts with the former Penn State defensive coordinator who was convicted of 45 charges of child sex abuse on and off the University Park campus.
In a sit-down interview in his State College office, Sandusky’s attorney, Joe Amendola told WJAC-TV that he could neither confirm nor deny ongoing federal investigations into his client or the charity that he founded.
“I think it’d be inappropriate for me to comment on that,” said Amendola. “If the federal authorities got involved, it might have to do with maybe how some of the money was used from the Second Mile organization. Because you may recall, there were some insinuations at Jerry’s trial about money being transferred to give to certain young people who turned out to be accusers.”
