Jerry Sandusky's lawyer Joe Amendola has claimed that one of his client's victims has denied that he was sexually assaulted.
Sandusky, 67, has been accused of sexually abusing eight young boys. He has been charged with 40 counts of child sex abuse, which a grand jury has said occurred over a period of nearly 15 years.
Mike McQueary has alleged that when he was a young graduate assistant at Penn State in 2002, he walked in on Sandusky sexually abusing a young boy in a shower on campus. A grand jury report has state that McQueary left without intervening and reported the incident to those in higher positions.
However, McQueary has since denied that he simply walked away like the grand jury report stated.
I did the right thing... you guys know me... the truth is not out there fully... I didn't just turn and run... I made sure it stopped... I had to make quick tough decisions... ESPN reported on an e-mail McQueary allegedly sent to his friends.
Amendola's claim comes on the heels of McQueary's denial of the grand jury's report stating he walked away from the incident.
The grand jury report stated that McQueary reported what he saw to Head Coach Joe Paterno, who then called his immediate supervisor and Tim Curley, Penn State athletic director, to his home the following day to report what McQueary saw.
More than a week later, McQueary was called to a meeting with Curley and Senior Vice President for Finance and Business Gary Schultz.
Neither Curley nor Schultz reported the incident to the police, the grand jury report stated, even though Schultz oversaw the university police as part of his position. Schultz also made no attempt to learn the boy's identity.
No one from the university did so, the grand jury report stated. Schultz did not ask the graduate assistant for specifics. No one ever did.
But Amendola told NBC's Bob Costas that they believe they know who the victim is and that he may now be a person in his 20s.
The grand jury report noted that the victim from 2002 is now 28 years old.
We have information that that child says that never happened, Amendola said, according to reports.
Costas then asked, So you found him, the commonwealth [of Pennsylvania] has not?
Interesting, isn't it, Amendola said.
Amendola also said he expects many of the victims named by the grand jury to deny that the sexual encounters ever happened.
Sandusky spoke for the first time on Monday when he had a telephone interview with Costas. He denied having any touched the boys with sexual intentions but admitted to showering with them.
When asked if he was sexually attracted to young boys, Sandusky replied, Am I sexually attracted to underage boys... sexually attracted? You know... no I enjoy young people I... I love to be around them. Umm I, no... I'm not sexually attracted to young boys.
Sandusky also said he has horsed around with kids and showered after workouts.
I have hugged them and I have touched their leg, Sandusky said, without intent of sexual contact.
Sandusky has said he is innocent of the charges being brought against him. He has also said he shouldn't have showered with the boys.
Sandusky is currently free on $100,000 bail. He will return to court next month.
