However, McQueary first spoke with Paterno, the morning after he witnessed the anal rape. The Grand Jury presentment says that McQueary told Paterno what he saw. It doesn't say he told Paterno part of what he saw. Or that because of Paterno's age only told Paterno in general terms what he saw.
Whatever Paterno heard, it was bad enough that Paterno not only contacted Curley the next day, he summoned Curley, the Athletic Director, and Schultz, the Senior Vice President of Business and Finance to his (Paterno's house). Do you think McQueary was so shook up at seeing the defensive coordinator for the Penn State team he played for as QB, the man whose son he went to school with, and played touch football with (in the vacant lot next to Paterno's house) was so shook up that (a) he could tell his father in detail the night before, and (b) tell Curley and Schultz in detail - but not Paterno?
And given that Sandusky had played for Paterno and been a coach under him for 30 years - and his defensive coordinator for about 20, that Paterno wouldn't have asked?
And if Paterno only thought some fondling may have taken place, why would he have not only contacted Curley, but Schultz? And Curley and Schultz were Paterno higher-ups only on an organizational chart. Paterno hired Curley.
It's surprising too frequent that prosecutors choose not to seek indictments against certain figures. Having thoroughly considered the presentment, I believe Paterno was one of those individuals a prosecutor chose not to indict.
