Mike McQueary, a 28-year-old graduate assistant at the time, says he saw Jerry Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy in the shower. McQueary calls his father, who tells him to alert Paterno.
McQueary reports the assault to Coach Joe Paterno.
Paterno tells athletic director Tim Curley.
About 10 days later, Curley and Gary Schultz, a university vice president, meet with McQueary, who says he told them he saw Sandusky having sex with a boy in the shower. No one calls law enforcement or tries to locate the boy.
Curley bars Sandusky from bringing children onto the Penn State campus and reports McQueary's story to the Second Mile and to university president Graham Spanier. Spanier approves Curley's handling of the situation.
