BELLEFONTE—The most damning account of an alleged assault by Jerry Sandusky, the one allegedly witnessed first-hand by another Penn State coach in the showers inside the Lasch Football Building, and led directly to the firing of the school's legendary football coach, its Athletic Director and Vice President, led to charges being filed against the latter two for perjury and failure to report a crime, has had a drastic change of timeline by the prosecution. In a motion filed this morning, the prosection has changed the time of the alleged assault on "Victim 2" by 13 months, from March of 2002 to February 9th, 2001.
Then grad assistant Mike MQueary says he saw Jerry Sandusky raping a boy in the showers of the Lasch Building. He says he reported the incident. Attorneys for former Athletic Director Tim Curley and former Vice President Gary Schultz say the change of date puts part of the case beyond the statute of limitations.
The next scheduled event in the case is a hearing Wednesday, May 9th, about squashing subpoenas filed by the defense for records of several of the accusers from former schools and state agencies. The alleged victims argue those records are protected by law. Also at issue is whether the prosecution has to share evidence it has gathered since charges were filed last November.
