This is the 800th Post on Pittsburgh Legal Backtalk. Thanks for reading.
Joe Paterno’s testimony before the grand jury corroborated Mike McQueary’s testimony that he reported activity of a sexual nature and not just horseplay. Paterno would have been an important prosecution witness in the trials of former PSU Athletic Director Tim Curley and former Senior Vice President Gary Schultz. These two defendants will assert that they were not informed of the full extent of what happened by McCreary.
While there is a transcript of Paterno’s testimony, because there was no opportunity to cross-examine in a grand jury proceeding, admission of the transcript would violate the Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution. So says ALM’s Legal Blogwatch.
