Hearing on Penn State coverup centers on Joe Paterno

Mike McQueary said coach was wary

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Longtime Penn State head coach Joe Paterno said that the university mishandled its response to the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal, a former assistant coach testified Monday during a hearing for three top school officials accused of a coverup.

Star witness Mike McQueary appeared in a courtroom for the third time since Sandusky’s November 2011 arrest and told the court that top school officials knew that he had seen Sandusky molesting a boy in a locker room shower.
