Mike McQueary Told Paterno he Witnessed “Extremely Sexual” Acts by Sandusky


Yesterday the embattled Mike McQueary gave his testimony at the preliminary hearing for two Penn State officials (former Athletic Director Tim Curley and V.P. Gary Schultz) charged with lying to the grand jury investigating sex crimes by Jerry Sandusky.

McQueary claims that less than 12 hours after he witnessed Sandusky with his arms wrapped around a young boy, molesting him in a locker room shower, he went to Joe Paterno‘s home, sat at his kitchen table and told him he’d seen something “way over the lines and extremely sexual in nature.”

Paterno Testimony: Would Have done more but didn’t want to Ruin A.D.’s Weekend


Joe Paterno gave a testimony before the grand jury investigation of Jerry Sandusky back in January. Today, it was read into the state record as Paterno himself was unable to attend due to his broken pelvis and lung cancer. Also,  Paterno was not legally mandated to appear at today’s hearing.

He was of course fired from his head coaching job five days after Sandusky was charged with several dozen counts of child sex abuse and former athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz were charged with lying to a grand jury about a report of rape in 2002. The A.D. and V.P. both resigned.
