Assistant McQueary takes stand in Sandusky case

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State assistant football coach Mike McQueary has told jurors at Jerry Sandusky's sex abuse trial about seeing the former coach with a boy in a campus shower.

It's the second time McQueary has testified publicly about his 2001 encounter in the Penn State football building. He also testified at a preliminary hearing for two Penn State administrators.

McQueary says Sandusky was standing behind a boy who was propped up against a wall. He says the boy appeared to be about 10 to 12 years old.

He says he closed a locker loudly "in an attempt to say 'someone's here, break it up.'" He says he then called his father.

Sandusky is on trial for 52 counts involving 10 boys over a 15-year span. He has denied the allegations.
