Victim's attorney on latest prison interview: Jerry Sandusky is attention seeker

Convicted child sex abuser Jerry Sandusky is speaking out for the first time since he was sent to prison in the Penn State child sex abuse case. This morning, a documentary filmmaker is playing excerpts from phone conversations that he recorded with Sandusky on NBC's "Today" show.

Tom Kline, attorney for victim #5 in the Sandusky case, weighs in on the interview on "Starting Point."

"Mr. Sandusky has always looked for a friendly forum," Kline says. "He looks and he seeks for attention. He's narcissistic. He can't accept his punishment and he's looking to tell his story again. He's looking to tell it in a friendly forum and I'm sure he was convinced that this would be a friendly forum."

Kline also says that hearing Sandusky speak from prison does nothing but make victims feel terrible all over again.
