Paterno family: Testimony shows report flaws

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A spokesman for the family of the late Penn State coach Joe Paterno says testimony from a former assistant coach raises more questions about the credibility of the school's report into the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Former assistant Mike McQueary testified Monday at a hearing for three former school officials accused of covering up the scandal. He told the judge that the late Hall of Fame coach had told him over the years that university administrators mishandled the response to the scandal.

McQueary also testified that Paterno warned him the school would try to make the assistant coach a scapegoat.

Paterno wasn't charged. But former FBI Director Louis Freeh wrote in his report for the school that Paterno took part in a cover-up.
