Accuser: Sandusky threatened me after assault
Question of the Day
The man said he only told his parents of the abuse last year, after being approached by police.
“The more negative thing I sort of put in the back part of my mind — closing a door, putting stuff in the attic is what I feel I did,” he said.
Earlier Wednesday, the father of former assistant coach Mike McQueary told the jury details of a phone call he had with his son after the former Penn State quarterback allegedly saw Sandusky abusing a young boy in a locker room shower.
John McQueary told the court he approached former university Vice President Gary Schultz about the allegations to follow up on his son’s report to the university. The elder McQueary said Schultz told him he had heard “noises” previously about misconduct by Sandusky.
Schultz and the school’s former athletic director each face charges of failure to report suspected child abuse and perjury related to their grand jury testimony about Sandusky. Both maintain their innocence.
John McQueary’s testimony ended with an unusual exchange with one of Sandusky’s attorneys. John McQueary apparently couldn’t recall testifying at the preliminary hearing for Schultz and Athletic Director Tim Curley, even after the attorney showed John McQueary a transcript from the hearing.
Two other alleged victims already have testified, describing in graphic detail encounters with the coach that happened after they met him through his charity for at-risk youth.
Sandusky, 68, has denied the allegations. Authorities say he abused the boys in hotels, at his home and inside the football team’s headquarters.
Sandusky’s attorneys have suggested his accusers have financial motivations for coming forward.
