STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — A new accuser is suing Jerry Sandusky, Penn State and a charity the former assistant coach founded, saying he was sexually abused about six years ago.

The Centre Daily Times reported Wednesday that the case was filed in Philadelphia last month by Williamsport attorney Bret Southard.

The lawsuit claims Sandusky abused the boy at the time of a shopping trip in 2008 or 2009, and after they attended a Penn State game in 2008 against Coastal Carolina University.

Southard tells the paper his client represents a new case. Penn State previously settled 26 cases for nearly $60 million.

The paper says the lawsuit describes the boy as a participant in The Second Mile, the charity for at-risk children Sandusky founded.
