HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Jerry Sandusky's adopted son Matthew says his sexual abuse at the former Penn State coach's hands consisted of oral sex, a more serious allegation than he made to detectives two years ago.

Matthew Sandusky spoke Thursday on "Oprah Prime" about abuse he says occurred when Jerry Sandusky would tuck him in during overnight stays at the Sandusky home in State College.

His claims of abuse arose during the 2012 trial that resulted in a 45-count conviction, but Jerry Sandusky has never been charged with any crime in relation to his adopted son.

Matthew Sandusky previously told investigators Sandusky had rubbed along or against his genitals but that he did not recall any penetration or oral sex.

Jerry Sandusky maintains his innocence. Matt Sandusky settled a civil claim with Penn State.
