Mike McQueary Takes Stand, Does Not Verify Jerry Sandusky Rape
Mike McQueary – the Penn State assistant coach currently on administrative leave due to the Jerry Sandusky child sex scandal rocking that campus – took to the stand today for a preliminary hearing that focused on two former school officials.
Similar to what was reported weeks ago by a Grand Jury, McQueary said he heard skin-on-skin slapping sounds emanating from the a shower in a university locker room. He peaked in and saw Sandusky with his hands around a boy’s waist from behind, while the child was facing the wall.
McQueary said he cannot be 100% certain than anal rape was taking place, but: “I know they saw me. They looked directly in my eye, both of them.”
He then exited the premises, told Joe Paterno about the incident – stating the coach looked disappointed at the news and told his charge he did the right thing – but did not use the words “sodomy” or “anal intercourse.”
