Penn State students and supporters gather for a large candlelight vigil for victims of child abuse in front of Old Main in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal on Nov. 11, 2011, in State College, Pennsylvania. Jerry Sandusky denied molestation in an interview Monday, his first since the scandal.

Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach, gave his first interview Monday night since being charged with 40 counts of sexual abuse. In a riveting telephone interview with NBC's Bob Costas, Sandusky denied he had molested young boys, saying he had showered with young boys and hugged them, but called his actions "horseplay." Laurie Levenson, a professor at Loyola Law School, joins Madeleine for analysis.
