Star witness describes Penn State shower scene

Former Penn State star quarterback turned star witness Mike McQueary testified Friday that he believes he saw Jerry Sandusky molesting a boy in a locker-room shower in 2002.

McQueary said he walked into a locker room and felt "embarrassed" as he heard someone in the shower.

"I looked in the mirror and shockingly and surprisingly saw Jerry with a boy in the shower," McQueary told the court.

McQueary said he heard rhythmic, slapping sounds, like that of skin on skin.

He said Sandusky was behind the boy and that the boy was up against a wall. He said he believes Sandusky was sexually molesting the boy but he did not see insertion and did not hear protests. He said he believes the two were engaged in intercourse but he cannot be sure.

McQueary was the first witness in a key hearing Friday for two university officials charged with lying after McQueary had described an alleged sexual assault he witnessed in a locker room.

    I think that McQueary was there and saw something.
    I don't believe that McQueary is telling the truth about what he saw or everything that happened.
    Whom can one believe in anything this sordid?
