STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Jerry Sandusky's son describes being sexually abused as an 8-year-old boy by the former Penn State assistant coach on a police interview tape obtained by NBC News.

Matt Sandusky told investigators he was abused after meeting his foster father through The Second Mile charity and a decade before Jerry Sandusky adopted him.

His attorneys confirmed the tape's authenticity to The Associated Press on Tuesday. NBC aired the tape on the "Today" show.
