The Harrisburg Patriot-News reported Sunday that the grand jury in the Jerry Sandusky case has heard a second, different version of what Penn State then-graduate assistant Mike McQueary witnessed in his 2002 encounter with Sandusky and a young boy in a PSU locker room.

McQueary has reportedly told the grand jury that he saw Sandusky and the boy engaged in a graphic sex act. But according to a source quoted in the Sunday Patriot-News report, the grand jury has also heard conflicting testimony from McQueary family friend Dr. Jonathan Dranov.  Per the source's account of Dranov's testimony, Dranov was present at the McQueary home when McQueary returned from the incident to discuss it with his father.

Dranov reportedly told the grand jury that McQueary's account that evening included seeing the boy and an adult sharing a shower stall and Sandusky leaving the showers (amongst other details), but not the graphic act of his earlier reported testimony. Dranov then advised McQueary to discuss the matter with Joe Paterno rather than go to the police, according to the Patriot-News source.

The precise nature of what McQueary told Paterno in their ensuing discussion has been the center of much of the outrage surrounding Paterno's and the PSU administration's inaction.

McQueary was placed on administrative leave from his coaching duties November 11 amidst threats to his safety.

The Duke case was an 18 year old stripper accusing a team of rape, Sandusky is a 60 year old plus man taking showers with 10 year old boys. If you can't see what's wrong with this then I am led to believe you support pedophilia. Joe P knew what happened and did nothing. Read the entire grand jury indictment before you discuss this please. Some of you PSU fans need to stop being ignorant and realize that this guy sexually abused and or raped kids around the age of 10, his superiors knew about it and did nothing. Teres Minor I feel bad for you and your blind faith and ignorance to these people that you have probably never met. Read the grand jury indictment to bring a little knowledge into your life, and if you still support these people then picture what you would do if this happened to you or someone in your family

So, what if this is a witch hunt?  What if Sandusky is actually innocent?

I might lean toward Sandusky's innocence if it weren't for these factors:

1. 8-9 victims accusing him. After 1, that is not publicized, your more likely than not, guilty.
2. Sandusky's career path had been on the way up until this incident has been made known to the PSU figure heads and Paterno.    Suddenly he retires. 
3. Sandusky's shady interview responses and sketchy lawyer.
4. The continued coverup efforts of anyone with any PSU connections (first judge to set bail, this guy claiming s different McCreary story).

"piss off core.    you probably went to pitt and blah blah blah"

No and no.  A simple click of the mouse would have told you that I have no affiliation to Pitt.  I made a stament based upon a little research on the person in question, this doctor friend of McQueary's father.  You made an assumption that could have been easily dispelled by clicking on a user profile.  Who do you think is coming off as the biased one here who is giving credence to emotion over fact?  Nice try but thanks for playing, kid.

Yes, ten victims (and counting) and multible incidents!?! I agree, I don't believe JoePa was givin a fair shake, However I dont think this anything like the Duke lacrosse incident! This guy has a history of being a sick bastard and now it's all coming to light. I hate that this is happening to a program that is such a big part of my family, but it should have been handled differently and it reaks of cover up. If you think there is going to be a criminal trial you lost your mind!

Duke Lacrosse, anyone?

So, what if this is a witch hunt?  What if Sandusky is actually innocent?  Whether you want to call it cancer or a broken hip, Joe Paterno is literally dying of a broken heart over the damage the torch and pitchfork crowd has done to him, merely because something might have happened on his watch.  

The media has manipulated a hungry public into being the judge and jury in Sandusky's case, and the judge, jury, and executioner in JoePa's case.  And now, anyone who has ever been in the locker room with Sandusky is getting ready to see how much money he can pry out of PSU through the "civil" court system.  Whether Sandusky actually did anything or not, this is a disgusting example of just how pathetic and gullible the American public has become, and just how desperate they are for an excuse to unleash their pent-up rage.

This is why everybody, inculding the horrible media, should of waited until it goes to court, and the rest of the Grand Jury Testinony is realease. This is why the GRT is usually sealed, so people don't rush to the wrong conclusion.

RonnieB2331, You have NO idea what the "evidence" says, SINCE YOU HAVEN'T seen the EVIDENCE.  This report is the CLOSEST thing so far to EVIDENCE and TESTIMONY.  This was a witness to what Mike McQueary said minutes after seeing whatever he saw.  Your lynch mob mentality is silly.   The grand jury presentment is NOT testimony or EVIDENCE.  It is a report written by a BIASED  prosecutor who wants an indictment.

Do we have to go through this thing in dribs and drabs, reports of who saw/said what?  I mean, it's not even the real offseson yet and it appears that people (especially reporters) want to start filling column inches with rumor-speak.  Are we going to see this Penn State thing drag on ala, Dennis Dodd's constant repitition of every development regarding Ohio State and Jim Tressel.  I am not advocating against telling the truth, the whole truth, however ugly it may/may not be.  What I don't want to see, and this is likely to be a futile battle, is coverage of every rumor, which results LOTS of reports containing one/two lines of actual news, surrounded by a lot of background or speculative material.  That's just too easy to write.

@UCFanatic Wow, that's a lot of assuming in there. Which is the biggest problem with this and any case like this. People make assumptions about something that they don't really know. That's just ignorant and arrogant.
