Former Penn State Graduate Assistant and Sandusky Informer McQueary Wants to Tell His Side

Thursday November 10th, 2011

Former Penn State graduate assistant Mike McQueary, who informed fired coach Joe Paterno of the incident he allegedly witnessed between Jerry Sandusky and a young boy in the football showers wants to tell his side of the story, according the NBC Sports.

“It’s not that he’s not willing,” McQueary’s father told The New York Times. “I think it’s eating him up not to be able to tell his side, but he’s under investigation by the grand jury. He’ll make it. He’s a tough kid.” McQueary, the then 28-year-old graduate assistant, first called his father after witnessing the disturbing sight involving Sandusky.

McQueary has come under fire for not pursuing police action, as have all other involved parties in the Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. As of now, McQueary has not faced any legal charges.
