Former Penn St. Nittany Lions vice president Gary Schultz' testimony joined Joe Paterno's and Tim Curley's in court records on Friday. His is certainly the hardest to read. At one point, Schultz explained why he didn't feel Penn State should take allegations of "inappropriate conduct" against former coach Jerry Sandusky to the police.
Here's how Schultz conveyed his reasoning:
CoryGiger Schultz in transcript: "Not all inappropriate conduct is criminal."
CoryGiger Schultz in transcript: an adult being naked in a shower with a young boy doesn't necessarily constitute criminal
CoryGiger Schultz in transcript: "I don't know if it's criminal" if a man grabs a young boy's genitals
We don't really need me to explain to you everything that's off there.
Schultz added that he didn't try to find out the alleged victim's identity.
He agreed with Curley in describing Mike McQueary's version of the shower incident as just "horsing around," adding that genitals may have been grabbed.
Regarding the 1998 claim against Sandusky, Schultz testified he believed the 2002 investigation had been sent along to the same "agency," though he couldn't specify which agency that may have been.
