Prosecutors didn't have all the facts before filing charges against two administrators in the Penn State sex-abuse case, lawyers for the men said after the attorney general's office changed the date of a key allegation that former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky sexually assaulted a boy in a locker room shower.
"If all the other facts match up to be identical, I think it's just an error without any harm for the prosecution," Mr. D'Andrea said. "However, if there are other inconsistencies, it gives the defense a reason to create some doubt about the credibility, sincerity, honesty and true recollection of what McQueary had to say."
He said recollections of dates over a 10- to 12-year time span are naturally imperfect.
