Penn State coach Mike McQueary testified today that he believes he saw Jerry Sandusky molesting a boy and that he fully conveyed what he had seen to two Penn State administrators. McQueary, speaking for the first time in public about the 2002 encounter in a Penn State locker room, said he believes that Sandusky was attacking the child with his hands around the boy's waist but said he wasn't 100% sure it was intercourse.

He said Sandusky was behind the boy he estimated to be 10 or 12 years old, with his hands wrapped around the boy's waist. He said the boy was facing a wall, with his hands on it. McQueary said he has never described what he saw as anal rape or anal intercourse and couldn't see Sandusky's genitals, but that "it was very clear that it looked like there was intercourse going on." McQueary took the stand during a preliminary hearing for Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, two university officials who are accused of lying to a grand jury about what McQueary told them. They testified to the grand jury that McQueary never relayed the seriousness of what he saw. (Read more Mike McQueary stories.)
