Forensic psychiatrist Michael Welner on the emotional implications of Matt Sandusky's abuse allegations

A new, explosive accusation of abuse in the Jerry Sandusky case as the jury deliberates his child sex abuse trial. Sandusky's own adopted son, Matt, now says he was also sexually abused by his father and was willing to testify against him.

Until now Matt has been one of Sandusky's strongest supporters during the investigation and the trial. And he denied he was abused. Jerry Sandusky, of course, is accused of abusing 10 young boys over 15 years.

The jury won't hear about the new accusations, since they were revealed after they went into deliberation. Forensic psychiatrist Michael Welner explains the emotionally difficult position Matt Sandusky is in while he tries to support his family.
