Penn State: Sandusky interview continues to open wounds

Posted: Updated:

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State says Jerry Sandusky's assertion that a key witness misinterpreted his showering with a young boy continues to "open wounds" for his victims.

Excerpts of Sandusky's interview with a documentary filmmaker were broadcast today on NBC's "Today" show. The former Penn State assistant football coach says he doesn't understand how Mike McQueary concluded "sex was going on" when he witnessed the shower incident in 2001.

Sandusky is serving a 30 to 60-year prison sentence for child sexual abuse and admits he may have "tested boundaries" but maintains he's innocent. He says he's not sure head coach Joe Paterno would have kept him on as an assistant had Paterno suspected Sandusky of being a pedophile.

Beyond the school statement on the interview, lawyers for one of Sandusky's victims say they've heard enough from Sandusky. They say they're focused on healing and holding Penn State accountable for its role in the scandal.
