Jerry Sandusky, Touched.

I was astounded to find that Jerry Sandusky, the poster boy for those who prey on underage people, wrote an autobiography entitled Touched, and that this was used to help the prosecution uncover evidence about him.  Seriously, truth is way stranger than fiction sometimes.

Sandusky is a master at two things in his attempt to cover his tracks: blowing smoke (as in putting up a smokescreen)  and shifting the blame for his crimes onto his victims, their parents, or whatever else he can use to absolve himself.  The New Yorker ran a great article on this in 2012, called In Plain View: How Child Molesters Get Away With It, featuring Sandusky, which can be found here:
