Yep, you got it. Mike McQueary! You know, the grown-up (he was in his late 20s) who actually saw Jerry Sandusky having sexual relations with a boy in the Penn State shower.
Well it turns out that the fact that he didn't report it to the police has caused a significant drop in his career prospects, to the tune of $4,000,000 worth, which he claims now is all Penn State's fault. From PennStateScout.com:
McQueary, meanwhile, was put on administrative leave, with pay. His contract with the university expired June 30 and was not renewed.Here this fellow actually witnesses an adult raping a child (this is extremely rare -- there are almost never any third party witnesses to these types of crimes.), yet he does nothing (except report it to Joe Paterno) for eight goddamn years, meanwhile Sandusky continues to commit his crimes.
In the suit, McQueary contends that his “employment was terminated in a discriminatory fashion … and that his employment was terminated by the Defendant because of his … cooperation with investigators for the Pennsylvania Attorney General.”
McQueary also claims “discriminatory treatment” by Penn State has caused him “much distress, anxiety and embarrassment.” Further, he says he has been defamed by Curley and Schultz, as well as Spanier (who also denies being told McQueary had seen Sandusky engaging in anything sexual with a boy).
And oh, boo hoo, Penn State did not renew his contract and only gave him 18 months severance pay. Yep, there's nothing like having somebody on staff who knows there's a pedophile operating out of your facility and does nothing about it for eight freakin' years. I can't see how that would ever hurt your career prospects.
