SO, YOU GET CAUGHT RAPING TEEN BOYS IN THE SHOWER, SO WHAT WILL YOUR DEFENCE BE?
“Some of these kids don’t have basic hygiene skills. Teaching a person to shower at the age of 12 or 14 sounds strange to some people, but people who work with troubled youth will tell you there are a lot of juvenile delinquents and people who are dependent who have to be taught basic life skills like how to put soap on their body.”
GRAND JURY TESTIMONY FROM A WITNESS ON FRIDAY……
A Penn State assistant football coach testified Friday that in 2002 he saw Jerry Sandusky sexually assaulting a young boy and that he reported it, in graphic detail, to Coach Joe Paterno and two senior Penn State University officials.
Mike McQueary’s testimony was the first public recounting of a critical episode in the case where Jerry Sandusky is charged with molesting 10 boys.
The former Penn State vice president Gary Schultz will be tried on a perjury charge.
“I described it was extremely sexual and that some kind of intercourse was going on,” the assistant coach, Mike McQueary, testified of the suspected assault by Sandusky, a longtime top assistant to Paterno. “There’s no question in my mind that I conveyed to them that I saw Jerry in the showers, and that it was severe sexual acts, and that it was wrong and over the line.”
McQueary testified at a hearing at the Dauphin County Courthouse for two senior Penn State officials who have been charged with failing to report McQueary’s account to the authorities and later lying under oath. The testimony was the first public recounting of a critical episode in a case in which Sandusky has been charged with molesting 10 boys over many years, Paterno has been fired, and the university’s reputation has been badly damaged.
In his testimony, McQueary described his meeting with Paterno the morning after he said he had witnessed Sandusky assaulting the boy in the showers of the university’s football facility. McQueary said he sat at Paterno’s kitchen table and told him what he had seen Sandusky — Paterno’s assistant for 32 years and an immensely popular figure on campus in State College, Pa. — doing to a naked boy.
Paterno, he said, “slumped back in his chair.” “He said: ‘Well, I’m sorry you had to see that. It’s terrible. I need to think and tell some people about what you saw, and I’ll let you know what we’ll do next.’ ”
Jerry Sandusky was handcuffed and removed from his Pennsylvania home earlier today … after he was hit with 9 NEW sex abuse charges from 2 new accusers.
According to Attorney General of Pennsylvania, the 2 new accusers each say they met Sandusky through the The Second Mile — an organization for at-risk youth that Sandusky founded.
Officials say, “As in many of the other cases identified to date, the contact with Sandusky allegedly fit a pattern of ‘grooming’ victims … Beginning with outings to football games and gifts; they later included physical contact that escalated to sexual assaults.”
One of the new accusers, who is now identified as Victim 9, claims he met Sandusky in 2004 … and alleges that bizarre behavior such as hugging, rubbing, cuddling and tickling escalated to sexual assaults … some of which were performed in the swimming pool and Jacuzzi of a hotel near Penn State.
The other new accuser, identified as Victim 10, claims he was 10-years-old when Sandusky would have “wrestling” sessions in the basement of the coach’s home — which escalated to oral sex.
The Attorney General announced that Sandusky was charged with 4 new counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and 2 counts of unlawful contact with a minor, all felonies which are each punishable by up to 20 years in prison and $25,000 fines.
Sandusky was also charged with 1 count of indecent assault and 2 counts of endangering the welfare of children, all third-degree felonies which are each punishable by up to seven years in prison and $15,000 fines.
THIS CASE IS JUST GOING FROM BAD TO HEART BREAKING TO SOME VERY SICK SHIT. BOTH THESE TWO NEED TO BE CHARGED.
The man identified as Victim 9 in the Jerry Sandusky grand jury presentment released this afternoon testified that Sandusky’s wife did not respond to his scream for help from the basement of their State College home.
“The victim testified that on at least one occasion he screamed for help, knowing that Sandusky’s wife was upstairs, but no one ever came to help him,” the presentment says.

Sandusky, charged last month with sexually assaulting eight boys, was arrested today and charged with assaulting two more. He was taken in handcuffs from his home today.
Victim 9, now an 18-year-old male, met Sandusky through his childhood participation in The Second Mile charity program from 2004-08. He told the grand jury he met Sandusky while participating in a pool activity as part of a Second Mile camp. Sandusky founded the children’s charities in 1977; the attorney general says that’s how he met all of his alleged victims.
Victim 9 testified to a pattern of sexual assaults by Sandusky over a period of years. Many of the assaults occurred in the basement bedroom of Sandusky’s home, he said. The victim testified that Sandusky performed oral sex on him numerous times. Sandusky also tried to rape him on at least 16 occasions and at times did penetrate him, he testified.
