In an emotional day in the Jerry Sandusky trial, victim 10 took the stand and said the former coach told him he’d never see his family again if the young boy told anyone about the alleged abuse.

The alleged victim, now 25 years old, told the court that Sandusky pinned him down and forced him to receive oral sex while the two were wrestling in the basement of Sandusky’s home. The victim said Sandusky got on top of him and pulled his shorts down. The man said Sandusky told him, “I’d never see my family again,” if he told anyone about the oral sex, according to the AP.

The victim was living with a foster family at the time and had met Sandusky, a former coach for Penn State University football, through the The Second Mile, a charity the former coach founded to help underprivileged boys. The man told the court that Sandusky later back down from his threat, but forced him to receive and perform oral sex two more times in 1998 and 1999.

“He apologized for saying that,” the witness said. “He told me he didn’t mean it and that he loved me.”

This witness was one of the first two alleged victims to come forward, which set off an investigation leading to 52 criminal counts against Sandusky.
