(NBC NEWS) Pennsylvania prosecutors may seek to use unaired portions of an NBC News interview with Jerry Sandusky in November in which the former Penn State defensive coach said, “I didn’t go around seeking out every young person for sexual needs that I’ve helped.”

The unaired portions of the “Rock Center with Brian Williams” interview– conducted by NBC Sports host Bob Costas — could become an issue this week as Sandusky’s lawyers start presenting their defense to charges that he repeatedly abused 10 young boys over a 15 year period.

On Friday, a prosecutor from the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office contacted an NBC News lawyer asking the network to re-authenticate a full unedited transcript of the Costas interview. Because the network had already released the transcript, and it had been published on a Pennsylvania news website, the network agreed.
