CNN report says Joe Paterno knew of prior Sandusky abuse claims

Joe Paterno knew of Jerry Sandusky accusations before 2001 assistant told police

The report, which CNN obtained and released Saturday, says when assistant coach Mike McQueary told Paterno he had seen Sandusky with a young boy in the showers at Penn State's football facility, that the head coach told him it was "was the second complaint of this nature he had received".

As McQueary recalled it some nine years later, when he reported what he saw to his boss and former coach the next morning, Joe Paterno said it was the second time that he had heard that type of report about Sandusky.

A CNN source obtained a one-page Pennsylvania state police report that lays out an account from Mike McQueary.

The legendary coach JoePa, as his fans knew him, died in January 2012 at the age of 85, shortly after he was sacked in November 2011 amid revelations that assistant coach Jerry Sandusky had sexually abused close to a dozen boys on the Penn State campus.

In addition, emails seemed to implicate that Paterno knew about an instance in 1998 where Sandusky gave a 10-year-old boy a "naked hug in a shower" which surfaced from Penn State's own internal investigation.

Attorneys for the Paterno family did not respond to CNN's requests for comment.

Last year, unsealed court records revealed that one accuser said he told Paterno about locker room abuse in 1976.

In June 2012, a jury found Sandusky guilty on 45 counts relating to child sexual abuse and sentenced him to 30 to 60 years in prison.

There was a live concern about not making the Sandusky case a trial of Penn State or Paterno, because of uncertainty about what kind of impact that could have had on jurors. He died of lung cancer in 2012.

Because of McQueary and Paterno legally doing the right thing and following their "chain of command" when reporting sexual abuse, new laws have been put in place where someone is required to report any sexual molestation to the police. He is now serving a 30-year prison sentence.

According to the report, two men claimed they reported their abuse at Sandusky's hands directly to Paterno in the 1970s. "I wish I had done more", was his response when he was sacked from his job after 46 years at the helm.
