Sandusky defense fails to dent McQueary's damning testimonyJune 13, 2012
Jerry Sandusky's lawyers failed to blow holes in the testimony Tuesday of former Penn State assistant football coach Michael McQueary, allowing prosecutors to score a big win in their child sexual abuse case.
Beginning with its opening statement, the defense has tried to demonstrate that the alleged victims have been coached to implicate Sandusky and have financial motives to make up their stories.
McQueary powerfully undermined that theory Tuesday. If he saw Sandusky in the shower with a young boy in a compromising position - and the jury will not doubt that he did after his testimony - then it seems much less likely that the young men were motivated by greed or prosecutorial influence.
But the defense missed several easier opportunities to show problems with McQueary's account.
