Matt Sandusky, the adopted son of former Penn State assistant football coach and convicted child abuser Jerry Sandusky (pictured above), is looking to change his last name.

On Tuesday, Matt Sandusky filed papers at the Centre County Court to have his last name, and the last names of his immediate family – a wife and four children, reported The Huffington Post. As the documents are sealed, it’s unknown what name he’s elected to take.

During Jerry Sandusky’s child abuse trial, Matt Sandusky was scheduled to testify in defense of his father. However, before he could take the stand, he admitted to investigators that he too had been a victim of abuse at the hands of Jerry Sandusky.

Jerry Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of sexual abuse, but maintains his innocence and is in the process of pursuing appeals. He is currently serving a 30 to 60-year prison sentence.
