The prosecution in the Jerry Sandusky case filed paperwork yesterday stating that the now infamous event in which former assistant Penn State football coach Mike McQueary claimed that he witnessed  Sandusky sexually assaulting a young boy in a locker room shower did not happen on the date which he originally claimed.

McQueary had initially said that the event occurred just before spring break in 2002, but the prosecution is now saying the event occurred in February of 2001, The Patriot-News reports. 

As a result of the changed timeline, two Penn State officials who are being charged with perjury and failure to report a crime say that at least some of their charges are now past the statute of limitations. It was McQueary’s testimony to a grand jury that ultimately led to the firing of former Athletic Director Tim Curley, Vice President Gary Schultz, and legendary football coach Joe Paterno.
