Mike McQueary, the Penn State aid coach who described visible details to a grand jury and police of Jerry Sandusky sexually attacking a young boy in a locker-room shower in 2002, told a different version of the event to a family pal shortly afterwards, The Patriot-News has reported. Baseball scores
McQueary left Penn Nation’s campus and went to his father’s house for information right after the event involving Sanudusky, the previous Nittany Lions defensive coordinator who stands charged with sexually abusing at least Ten boys. NFL scores
That is when McQueary told Dr. Jonathan Dranov, a family pal and colleague of McQueary’s pa, that he had heard “sex sounds” and a running shower before a little boy peered around the corner of the shower’s stall, the Harrisburg, Pa, paper reported Sunday morning, citing a source with understanding of Dranov’s affidavit before the grand jury that brought the charges.
McQueary, a receivers coach who remains on executive leave, stated that he then saw an adult arm reach round the boy’s waist and pull him out of view, Dranov told the grand jury, according to the newspaper’s source.
Sandusky left the shower in a towel seconds later, the report related.
Because McQueary claimed he hadn’t personally experienced an attack, Dranov said he advised McQueary to report the incident to his highers at Penn State, but that he shouldn’t fret about informing the police, the report asserted.
Ousted coach Joe Paterno has said he was never told of anything like rape or molestation about what occurred in the shower stall. Paterno and McQueary debated the problem the following day. McQueary’s story is also a key aspect of the perjury and other charges brought against former Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and ex-vice president Gary Schultz, whose stories also gainsay McQueary’s.
Curley and Schultz have given evidence they were told about “horseplay” that McQueary recounted made him feel awkward. McQueary says he told them graphic details about a sexual assault.
As formerly reported, McQueary told a pal in an e-mail that he stopped the alleged rape and debated it with police, something a source familiar with the country’s enquiry confirmed to ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi.
McQueary gave evidence that after witnessing the purported assault, he left the building, called his pop and the following day told Paterno what he saw.
In another email reported by NBC News, McQueary told mates that he probably did the honest thing.
“I didn’t just turn and run … I made absolutely sure it stopped … I had to make quick hard decisions,” he announced in the email, according to the report.
Sandusky has been charged with sexaully assaulting or molesting Ten boys over a period of about Fifteen years, with some of the alleged abuse taking place at the Penn State football complicated. He has maintained his innocence.
The Penn State scandal brought down Paterno, who was fired by school trustees November. Nine amid growing feedback that he should have done more to stop the purported abuse. University president Graham Spanier was also dismissed.
