(WDAY TV) -- An assistant football coach at Penn State has been placed on administrative leave.

Mike McQueary testified in a grand jury investigation that eventually led to child sex-abuse charges against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Now, for the first time, the mother of one of the victims is speaking out.

In an exclusive interview with ABC News, the mother of one of the boys allegedly molested by Penn State football's former defensive coordinator, says her son was just 11 years old when he first met Jerry Sandusky at the coach's Second Mile foundation

Mother: β€œHe said I didn't know what to do and you just can't tell Jerry no.”

According to the grand jury indictment, the boy referred to by authorities as "Victim One"-- was spending time with Sandusky every weekend in 2007, sleeping at the coach's house where he was being abused.

Mother: "I didn't know he was taking him out of classes, they never told me that." I want justice.. I want him.. I wanted him to be locked up there's no, there's no help for somebody who does this. Not like this. He needs to be put away. He needs to be put away for long time.”

Sandusky is now under investigation in Texas. Police in San Antonio are checking on whether Sandusky may have abused a young boy he took with him to the Alamo Bowl in 1999.

The school's Board of Trustees is launching its own investigation a special committee will look into the "circumstances" that led to the indictment of Sandusky as well as two senior university officials

Pre game pep rally has been cancelled tonight.. instead there will be a candlelight vigil for the victims.
