BELLEFONTE, Pa. - A teenager whose complaints by his mother about Jerry Sandusky in 2008 prompted a grand jury investigation tearfully told jurors the former Penn State assistant football coach performed oral sex on him after meeting him through his charity.

The boy, labeled Victim No. 1 by prosecutors, is now 18 years old. He choked back tears as he spoke of encounters that included Sandusky fondling him, kissing him and ultimately engaging in a sex act.

The teen is the second of Sandusky's accusers to testify in the former coach's high-profile child sex-abuse trial. Sandusky faces 52 counts involving 10 boys over a 15-year span.

Sandusky has denied the allegations. His attorney says the accusers have financial motivations for their claims.
