HARRISBURG — A young man who testified last year against Jerry Sandusky is suing the former coach and Penn State for what he says was nearly four years of sexual assaults while he was a child.

The lawsuit by John Doe 4, known as Victim 9 in court records, was filed Thursday in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court.

It claims he wouldn't have been victimized if university officials had reported Sandusky to police.

A university spokesman declined comment and a message left for a lawyer who's represented Sandusky in other civil litigation wasn't immediately returned.

The lawsuit asserts an assault and battery claim against Sandusky. The university is sued for negligence and recklessness, tortious conduct, misrepresentation and infliction of emotional distress.

Six of 45 counts for which Sandusky was convicted concern Victim 9.
