An email from Penn State wide receivers coach Mike McQueary, who was identified in a grand jury report as a graduate assistant who said he saw an assistant coach sexually assaulting a young boy in the shower of a university locker room in March 2002.

The email was made available by a friend, who did not want to be identified.


... you are the first person I have told this ... and I don't know you extremely well ... and I have been told bye officials to not say anything ...

I did stop it, not physically ... but made sure it was stopped when I left that locker room ... I did have discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police .... no one can imagine my thoughts or wants to be in my shoes for those 30-45 seconds ... trust me.

Do with this what you want ... but I am getting hammered for handling this the right way ... or what I thought at the time was right ... I had to make tough impacting quick decisions.

This is off record ... again ... I have not and will not say anything to anyone else.
