STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (March 25, 2013)—Convicted child sexual predator Jerry Sandusky says a key witness against him misinterpreted an incident in which he was showering with a young boy in the Penn State team showers more than a decade ago.
Sandusky said in brief interview excerpts aired Monday on NBC's "Today" show that he doesn't understand how Mike McQueary concluded "that sex was going on" when he witnessed Sandusky showering with a boy in 2001.
Documentary filmmaker John Ziegler said he conducted 3½ hours of interviews with the former Penn State assistant football coach, now serving a decades-long sentence for child sexual abuse. Sandusky maintains his innocence.
Sandusky says he's not sure whether late Penn State head coach Joe Paterno would have let him keep coaching if he suspected Sandusky was a pedophile.
A Paterno family lawyer says Sandusky had the opportunity to testify at trial but "chose not to do so."
