Former ESPN anchor Dana Jacobson comes forward with story of abuse

The only silver lining to the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse trial is that these types of high-profile cases can prompt other victims of abuse to come forward with their stories.

Even if it was decades ago, speaking openly and honestly about what happened to them can inspire more victims to come forward and show everyone that there is a life after the abuse, that it does not have to define a person forever.

OutFront tonight – Dana Jacobson, a former anchor at ESPN, talks exclusively to Erin about her abuse at the hands of a male babysitter more than 30 years ago.
