State College, PA
The sex-abuse scandal that has rocked Penn State continues to evolve with more and more developments each day.
Mike McQueary who was named in a grand jury report as the graduate assistant who saw Jerry Sandusky allegedly sodomizing a boy in the locker room, said he stopped the act and went to police.
In the email, first obtained and reported Tuesday by The Morning Call of Allentown, Pa., McQueary said he "did have discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police" after the alleged incident.
In the email, dated Nov. 8, McQueary said, "I did stop it, not physically, but made sure it was stopped when I left that locker room," The Morning Call reported.
McQueary has been silent as the case has unfolded but in a brief interview with CBS News on Tuesday, McQueary said he could not discuss specifics and described his emotions as "all over the place."
"Just kind of shaken. Crazy," McQueary said. "Like a snow globe."
In other developments it has been learned that former head coach Joe Paterno transferred full ownership of his house to his wife, Sue, for $1 in July.
That transaction came less than four months before the Sandusky scandal ended his career at Penn State and rocked the university.
Documents filed in Centre County, Pa., show that on July 21, Paterno's house near campus was turned over to "Suzanne P. Paterno, trustee" for a dollar plus "love and affection."
The couple had previously held joint ownership of the house, which they bought in 1969 for $58,000.
The decision to transfer the house could be significant because it shows a possible move done to shield Paterno's assets from liability. Paterno has not been charged with any wrongdoing in the scandal but could be involved in civil suits down the road.
Also on Wednesday Penn State has named David M. Joyner, a member of the university's board of trustees for more than a decade, as acting athletic director.
Joyner, a Penn State Distinguished Alumnus and a member of the board of trustees since 2000, will suspend his membership on the board to take on his new role. He replaces Tim Curley, who stepped down after being charged with perjury and failing to report a 2002 child rape accusation against Sandusky to police.
"Dave Joyner has served the board with integrity, and he is internationally known for his work with the U.S. Olympic Committee. I am confident that he will bring that same integrity to his new role," Penn State president Rodney Erickson said in a statement.
