In 2012, former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse. On Thursday, July 17, Oprah sits down with his adopted son Matthew Sandusky, who is speaking out for the first time about the sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of his adoptive father. "The picture that he paints of what went on in the Sandusky household on a nightly basis will no doubt outrage and disgust you," Oprah says. "But more importantly, what I'm hoping is it moves you to really become aware of what a child crying for help looks like." Find out why Oprah says Jerry Sandusky's methods of grooming and manipulating children were classic signs of a pedophile.
