McQueary: "Act was over" so I didn't go to cops
Source: CBS/AP

Penn State assistant football coach Mike McQueary says he witnessed former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky molesting a boy but that he didn't call police because he was sure "the act was over."

McQueary was testifying Friday at a preliminary evidentiary hearing for two of his superiors at Penn State who are charged with perjury for allegedly lying to a grand jury in an attempt to cover up child sex abuse allegations against another coach, Jerry Sandusky.

Under cross-examination, McQueary answered a question that many observers had asked: Why didn't he call police on Sandusky?

He says it was because it was "delicate in nature" and that he tried to use his best judgment. He says he was "sure the act was over."

1. really
well I guess if we apply that to every crime, once you've killed someone, it's over, so it's best to move along.
