'Highly Incriminating' Evidence in Jerry Sandusky Case Could Lead to New Charges


The men decided after a 1998 investigation into Sandusky showering with a young boy to simply bar the former football coach from bringing children onto campus, a edict which they did not enforce.

In 2001, all four men were told that Sandusky was seen in the shower again with a young boy by assistant coach Mike McQueary. McQueary has said he believed he saw Sandusky raping the young boy and relayed the information to Paterno in vague terms, making sure Paterno understood that the incident was sexual.

Curley and Schultz have maintained they were not told the incident qualified as sexual abuse. None of the men reported the incident to police.

Joe Paterno died of lung cancer in January.

Graham Spanier has never been charged in the case. The Pennsylvania attorney general's office has said that Spanier was not informed that the incident McQueary witnessed was sexual in nature.

The transcript released Thursday in the Sandusky case ends with all of the attorneys and judges overseeing the case and the grand jury investigation agreeing to seal all of the evidence in the case, whether it was mentioned in the trial or not.

Sandusky is in jail awaiting sentencing on his conviction.
