McQueary email: I stopped Sandusky, went to police
“The serious nature of these allegations and the evidence on the public record of failure to report by individuals at Penn State warrants an immediate review of the relationship between federal and state reporting requirements on child abuse and neglect” Casey, a Democrat, wrote.
Justine Sessions, a spokeswoman for the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions said it was “closely monitoring this situation and the ongoing criminal and Department of Education investigations, and will take Sen. Casey’s request under consideration.”
“I am innocent of those charges,” Sandusky said. “… I could say that I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them, and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact.”
The grand jury said some of the crimes happened at Penn State, where Sandusky had access to campus as an emeritus professor following his 1999 retirement as Paterno’s top defensive assistant.
Asked whether he was sexually attracted to underage boys, Sandusky said “sexually attracted, no. I enjoy young people, I love to be around them, but, no, I’m not sexually attracted to young boys.”
Asked if there was anything he had done wrong, Sandusky said, “I shouldn’t have showered with those kids.”
The scandal has hit hard the community called Happy Valley, where “success with honor” is the motto. Paterno and University President Graham Spanier have lost their jobs. Curley and Schultz also have left their posts.
“We anticipate we’re going to have at least several of those kids come forward and say `This never happened. This is me. This is the allegation. It never occurred,’” Amendola said on the NBC broadcast.
A spokesman for Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly declined to comment on the interview, citing the active investigation.
Amendola earlier told CNN that his client was just behaving like “a jock.”
