Sandusky Accuser Says Police Knew of Recent Dinner
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- An attorney for a man who says he was abused by ex-Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky is taking aim at the accused molester's lawyer for questioning alleged victims.

Lawyer Howard Janet said Friday his client was invited to Sandusky's home four months before Sandusky was charged with molesting children. He says the client told police about the invite and reported to them about the meeting afterward.

Janet says a claim by Sandusky's lawyer that the meeting indicates the former coach remained friendly with several accusers is "grotesque."

Sandusky attorney Joseph Amendola told The Patriot-News newspaper this week about accusers visiting the Sandusky home. Sandusky says he is innocent.

Janet represents a man who says he was bear-hugged by Sandusky while showering with him in 1998.
