So who is lying, the Grand Jury or McQueary?
The grand jury adresses what was seen. It does not address whether it was stopped or not.
Assumptions were made.
The old saw about assume.
McQueary is the "graduate assistant" mentioned in the Grand Jury report. His testimony then is different from what he is now relating. He can assert anything he wants now, but if he insists on the current version, he can be brought back before the Grand Jury again and questioned as to which version is correct. Perjury before the Grand Jury is serious and he can be criminally indicted.
It sounds as if the cover-up is starting to unravel in Happy Homo Valley.
But he doesn't say WHEN he talked to them. It could have been days or weeks later. Yeah, that's prompt reporting of a serious, violent felony.
As for stopping the rape, I doubt he did anything proactive beyond surprising Sandusky, causing him to end his crime. Leaving in horror does not equal helping the child in any way.
McQueary is padding the story. He's lying.
Probably the only reason the DA has not charged him is that he is an eye witness to one of the rapes. He will get immunity for his testimony. Getting his honor back is gonna require some clever, lawyer lying.
The grand jury probably has a deposition or transcript of McQueary’s testimony. He may have said it the wrong way or not read the deposition well.
Or McQueary may just be panicking because he’s seen how the public views a guy who flees such a situation before he rescues the boy so he’s changing his story now. If he’s acting to cover his ass again that’s just more aid to the Sandusky so McQueary can look good. He’s hurting the boys’ case, calling into question his own credibility.
The Grand Jury stuff posted on the web is clearly not all of the testimony, just a report. So - not quite right to characterize it as a lie...(yet)
