• A man who says he was the boy observed being sexually abused by Jerry Sandusky in a Penn State shower more than 15 years ago gave conflicting statements to authorities and was considered to lack credibility, investigators said during an appeal hearing in Bellefonte, Pa.
The man has settled with Penn State based on a claim he is Victim 2 and was seen by graduate assistant Mike McQueary being attacked by Sandusky, then an assistant football coach, in 2001. The man gave differing statements to Sandusky’s lawyers and to police investigators, according to testimony, and neither side called him to the stand during the 2012 trial.
The identity of Victim 2, and the man’s claim to be Victim 2, figures into the 72-year-old Sandusky’s bid for a new trial or to have charges dismissed because of a reference during lead prosecutor Joe McGettigan’s closing argument before a jury convicted Sandusky of 45 counts of abuse involving 10 victims.
