As Jerry Sandusky awaits sentencing on 45 counts of sexual abuse against boys, a new report has surfaced that he was allegedly involved in a tri-state child porn ring. Forty-eight-year-old Greg Bucceroni has come forward, saying that as a young boy in 1979, Ed Savitz -- now deceased, then-advocate for at-risk children -- arranged for him to have sex with Sandusky, whom he says everyone called “The Coach.” In a Dr. Phil exclusive, Greg speaks out about the horrors he says he lived through as a child. Hear how he says he was manipulated into the dark and dangerous world of drugs and child prostitution. And learn why, after 34 years, he says he’s finally telling his secret. Greg insists he tried getting the police involved at the time of the alleged abuse, to no avail. Why does he believe no one listened? This show contains strong sexual content. Viewer discretion is advised.

I've been there too and I've been to support groups off and on during my teens and while I was an adult and I've never heard anyone in person or on Dr. Phil and Oprah ever tell their story like Greg. Greg told his story like he was reading the back of a cereal box. It wasn't just his family that said that he was lying, there was other sources too. I'm not saying it's not possible, however, from what I saw and read about him on-line, his story is hogwash. P.S. I do commend anyone on this message board for being able to confess that they were abused, that takes courage. I do also have great respect for the true victim that appeared on the show with Greg - the one that spent the night in the Sandusky home.

I think it boils down to, you have to have been there and experienced the things they did in the ways that they did.  I get it.  Completely.  But I've been there and so it's just an ingrained part of me, a sense that I wouldn't wish on anybody to have earned.

I agree with you 100% in regard to Greg. Greg's family have even been quoted saying that he's lying. I posted my thoughts in a nice, professional manner regarding Greg and my post was reported and deleted. I advised everyone that believed Greg to Google his name. I saw right through him before Googling him. Sad that this is a message board but when you disagree with the majority, your comments get deleted.

the reason the police did nothing was because to some people this type of thing doesn't exsist.  Many prople from PSU or the area bleed blue and white. They were afraid to loose their jobs.

When an adult wants to be near your children more than you want to be near them, there is something wrong! You are just asking for trouble if you let someone else take care of your children. 


These scum know how to manulipilate kids and parents. If they've been to prison, they are schooled in manipulation! Don't believe they can get counseiling either.

These men are coming forward after so many years, why not sooner when they became adults.   One is suing Penn State and i am certain that it will not be long before the other one does as well.   What happened to them is horrific and I only wish that they could have come forward sooner.  There must be many victims over this lengthy span of time.   I think if someone would have touched me inappropriately the moment when i could truly decipher this i would have told someone.    I know molestation happens but why did these gentleman go to where Sadusky was.   What hold did he have on them.  One wanted a bike, i was 11 and i wanted a bike but i would not have offered my body for one.   I am not trying to judge but to understand this situation.      I only hope that justice comes from this.    Mr. Sadusky has to be held accountable.     I think mothers with son's are not sleeping well.  But I think any child is at risk for this act.    Children need to be made aware of their bodies and the boundaries and not be afraid to tell.   Parents need to watch who is around their children when  they are not around them.    Basically, do not trust just anyone until you know for sure.   And cut down on frequent visits.   Why would a child need an adult around other then a parent or a grandparent.   Children hang out with children not adults.   Also I hope there is follow up on the police accusations of calling someone White Trash.   I find this had to believe.   If it is the case, let this officer know what error he or she made and hold them accountable as well.   This makes me look at childhood innocence in a totally different light .

I have a very wise hairdresser who once said, "Men are different from women. They don't have the same hormores." That's why there are times when "they don't get it."

But in the case of the men appearing on this show, I think they believed that to cry would be a show of "weakness" and they did not choose to appear "weak."

Some day, I hope our world will change. I hope that everyone everywhere will understand and realize that there are "human emotions" and that expression of "human emotions" is not weakness, but simply natural or normal in certain settings and under certain conditions.

I also think it took great COURAGE for them to choose to come forward. It was a great humanitarian act, in the sense that they want to save other boys from having to go through what they went through and still are going through.

Let's lend them our consideration, empathy and understanding... Let's treat them the way we would want to be treated if something similar happened to us and we found ourselves in their shoes...
