Sandusky: 'I'm Not the Monster Everyone Made Me Out to Be'


McQueary, who is now on administrative leave as a coach on the team, sent emails to friends and players last month saying that he stopped the alleged sex assault, and that he spoke to police about the incident.

"I did stop it, not physically ... but made sure it was stopped when I left that locker room," he wrote in the emails.

McQueary wrote in one of the emails, "I did have discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police.... no one can imagine my thoughts or wants to be in my shoes for those 30-45 seconds ... trust me."

However, it was unclear which police force he was referring to.

"Right now, we have no record of any police report filed by Mike McQueary," university spokeswoman Lisa Powers said in an email sent to ABC News last month. "This is the first we have heard of it."

The town's police force also has no record of McQueary's allegation.

"He didn't come to State College police," State College Police Chief Thomas King told ABC News. "The crime happened on campus and we don't have jurisdiction on campus."

Sandusky said his punishment was to no longer be allowed to bring children from the charity he ran to the college's football facilities.

"He didn't want me to bring kids in there and work them out anymore, and I remember saying well could I just work them out? And he said no," Sandusky told the Times.

In addition, Sandusky said the charity he worked for never restricted his access to young people, until he was the subject of a criminal investigation in 2008.

Sandusky also discussed his answer to a question whether he was sexually attracted to underage boys.

"I was sitting there like, 'what in the world is this question?' am I going to be, if I say, 'no I'm not attracted to boys,' that's not the truth because I'm attracted to young people -- boys, girls," he said.

But he went on to clarify that statement: "I enjoy spending time with young people. I enjoy spending time with people. I mean, my two favorite groups are the elderly and the young," he said. "The young because they don't think about what they say and the old because they don't care, you know?"

Throughout the interview, Sandusky defended his decades of working with children.

"I miss coaching, I miss Second Mile, I miss Second Mile kids, I miss having relationships with all kinds of people, I miss my own grandkids," he said.
