On Wednesday, a claim from Penn State wide receivers coach Mike McQueary surfaced saying he went to police in 2002 about an incident in which he claims he caught former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky raping a 10-year-old boy in a campus shower. On Thursday, central Pennsylvania police came forward saying they have no records of McQueary reporting any sexual assault on the part of Sandusky.
State College borough police chief Tom King said McQueary never made a report to his department. Penn State campus police spokeswoman Annemarie Mountz also said campus police have no record of a 2002 report by McQueary.
In a grand jury report, McQueary testified that he told his father and coach Joe Paterno what he saw in the showers. The grand jury report does not mention McQueary going to police.
- On Wednesday, Harrisburg attorney Ben Andreozzi said in a statement that he is representing one of Sandusky’s alleged victims and the victim will testify that he was molested by Sandusky.
Andreozzi’s claim came after Sandusky’s lawyer, Joe Amendola, said several of the alleged victims will come forward and say they have not been molested.
“I am appalled by the fact that Mr. Sandusky has elected to re-victimize these young men at a time when they should be healing,” Andreozzi said in the statement. “He fully intends to testify that he was severely sexually assaulted by Mr. Sandusky.”
- The Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts also announced Wednesday that it will assign a new judge to the case. Westmoreland County Senior District Judge Robert E. Scott will replace Centre Country District Judge Leslie Dutchcot, who was a donor and volunteer with Sandusky’s charity, The Second Mile, from which Sandusky allegedly found his victims.
A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for Dec. 7.
- Penn State named an acting athletic director to replace Tim Curley, who is on leave from the position due to perjury charges related to the Sandusky scandal. Board of Trustees member David Joyner, a business consultant and orthopedic surgeon who played football and wrestled at Penn State, will take over for Curley.
Joyner has been a trustee on the board since 2000, but will not serve while acting as athletic director. Mark Sherburne, who served as interim athletic director in Curley’s absence, will return to his post as associate athletic director.
