Graham Spanier, the very liberal former President of PSU seems to have known all about Sandusky’s predilection for little boys and decided to be ‘humane’ and not inform the authorities.
Previously, Mr. McQueary testified to a grand jury that he saw the boy in the shower naked with Mr. Sandusky after he went into the locker room to retrieve his shoes. Mr. McQueary testified that he believed Mr. Sandusky was molesting the boy and “having some type of sexual intercourse with him.”
He said he relayed what he saw to then head coach Joe Paterno, Mr. Curley and Mr. Schultz. The two administrators then relayed the report to Mr. Spanier, who said it was described to him as “horsing around” and not something sexual.
In the exchange, NBC said the three weighed whether to tell local authorities what Mr. McQueary had said, though it’s still not clear if Mr. Spanier knew the full extent of what the graduate assistant said he witnessed.
Additionally, NBC reported that internal documents reveal that legal research was done to determine whether the university officials were required to report the incident. In the end, Mr. Spanier and Mr. Schultz concluded it would be “humane” to Mr. Sandusky not to relay Mr. McQueary’s report to local authorities, according to NBC.
Spanier approved of this as well.
