Jerry Sandusky trial: Mike McQueary has taken Sandusky backlash well, his brother says
By SARA GANIM, The Patriot-News
Published: Wednesday, June 13, 2012, 4:00 AM     Updated: Wednesday, June 13, 2012, 9:22 AM

JOE HERMITT, The Patriot-News Former Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary is escorted out of the back of the Centre County courthouse after testifying during the second day of the Jerry Sandusky trial on child molestation charges. McQueary was transported in a van driven by attorney general office personnel. Sandusky has been charged with 52 counts of child sex abuse allegedly involving 10 boys over 15 years.

BELLEFONTE - Jerry Sandusky’s defense has been built around the idea that if Mike McQueary could be broken on the stand, the entire case would crumble underneath him.
In the last seven months, since Sandusky was charged with sexually abusing 10 boys over 14 years, lead defense attorney Joe Amendola has repeatedly said his theory is that a majority of the accusers heard that McQueary came forward, realized Penn State could be involved, and saw this as an opportunity to file a lawsuit.

But when McQueary left the witness chair on the second day of Sandusky’s trial Tuesday, defense attorney Karl Rominger had no gotcha moment.

His cross-examination did hit on some interesting points, however.

Gary Schultz didn't have secret files on Jerry Sandusky case, attorney says
By JEFF FRANTZ, The Patriot-News
Published: Wednesday, June 13, 2012, 9:03 AM     Updated: Wednesday, June 13, 2012, 12:21 PM

This article has been updated from a previous version.

Prosecutors say they have more proof that Gary Schultz lied to the grand jury investigating allegations of child sex abuse against Jerry Sandusky.
That proof — in the form of a secret file and a series of emails not previously turned over to investigators — could be the key corroborating evidence in the case against Schultz, the former Penn State vice president, and Tim Curley, the former athletic director.

 It could also open the door for further prosecutions against Penn State officials.
 ::snipping2::
Late Tuesday, Tom Farrell, an attorney representing Schultz, issued a statement. “To be clear, Mr. Schultz did not possess any secret files,” Farrell stated. “All his files were left behind after he retired and were available to his secretaries and his successor. The only ‘secret’ information revealed was the privileged grand jury information inaccurately described by unidentified law enforcement sources to the media.”

DR. DREW
Inside Sandusky Testimony
Aired June 12, 2012 - 21:00   ET
THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

DR. DREW PINSKY, HOST: Here we go.

One of the alleged victims apparently breaks down on the stand in the Jerry Sandusky rape trial. So, what is it like to relieve the trauma and the pain of these experiences?

I`m speaking to a woman who faced her rapist in court. She is speaking with us live and taking your calls.

And later, a father beats a man to death after the father says he caught him molesting his 4-year-old daughter. Weigh in now at 1-855- DRDREW5. Should that dad be charged?

Let`s get started.

(MUSIC)

PINSKY: Welcome to the program.

We`re going to start out tonight talking about day two of the Jerry Sandusky trial, sex abuse trial. Alleged victim number one takes the stand and with me to tell us about that is Michael Christian, an HLN senior producer who is covering the trial.

Michael, please tell us about what we are hearing about victim number one`s test -- alleged victim number one`s testimony. I heard he broke down on the stand today.

MICHAEL CHRISTIAN, SR. FIELD PRODUCER, "IN SESSION": He did. He was very emotional, Dr. Drew. We heard from another alleged victim yesterday, number four. And he told his story in a much more matter of fact way. It certainly was effective, but without the emotion.

Well, today, when we had alleged victim number one, there was a lot of emotion. He cried. There were times when he gasped, as if he was trying to catch his breath before he could move on. It was clearly a very difficult story for him to tell.

And one of the interesting differences between these victims we have seen is number four who testified yesterday is 28. Now, he didn`t have a lot of emotion but he`s had a little more time in his life to come to terms with this. Victim number one we saw this morning, he is 18. This is still lot closer to him and I think that may account for a lot of the emotion that we saw today.

PINSKY: And, Michael, do you think this alleged victim had a significant impact on the jury?

CHRISTIAN: I don`t know how it couldn`t have. I can tell you that of the jurors in the box, virtually every one of them is looking at him intently as he is telling his story, with the exception of one person, that is very interesting, because it is the youngest juror, who is a Penn State college student, who wasn`t looking at him. That particular juror apparently was just kind of looking down a lot of the time, was -- was listening, you could tell, but not really looking and I think because he is so close in age to victim number one, it was tough for him to process that kind of information.

But other than that, everyone was looking directly at victim number one and listening to every word.

PINSKY: And, Michael, finally what about Jerry Sandusky himself? Did he seem shaken or at all affected by this testimony?

CHRISTIAN: You know, I don`t mean this to sound ridiculous, but he is very easy going. He was always like that during pretrial hearings. People talk about how likable he was. And he is like that in the courtroom. He comes in in the morning, he smiles. He sits at the table and he listens to these witnesses, but you don`t see a lot of emotion out of him. He`s just drinking it in and just this nice guy, appearing to be a nice guy that everyone talks about.

PINSKY: All right. Michael, thanks for that report. Now, we are sort of launching from the Sandusky case to talk about the specifics of what someone goes through, having to live through -- first of all, to live through the nightmare of being abused but then living through the nightmare of testifying in front of the abuser.

I have Sara Alvarez with me. She had to go through precisely that. There`s Sara.

Sara, thank you so much for joining us.

Before we go to calls, tell people a little about your story so they get a sense of what you had to do, what you have been through, and how you found your way out.

SARA ALVAREZ, SEXUALLY MOLESTED BY STEPFATHER: Well, when I was 4 years old, my stepfather abused me, sexually molested me, went to prison and then when I was 16 years old, he was out of prison. My mother took him back into the home. He abused me again.

And then I -- you know, inevitably went to trial against them. So I think that`s what we are talking about tonight, how these victims were abused and now they are being completely re-victimized through Sandusky sitting there, staring at them. You know, they have go up there and almost relieve the horrors through everything they have been through, now telling it in front of a jury, and it`s embarrassing, and it`s horrible, and it`s gut-wrench, and it`s so emotional.

PINSKY: Sara, thank you being willing to share the story with us.

Let`s go to calls, Sara is going to stay with me, answering your calls about what she went through, what you think about Sandusky and how she was able to get through this. I mean, there is a story of the human spirit behind this and I want you all to understand how that works.

And, by the way, sexual abuse, physical abuse, abandonment of kids in this country is stunningly common. It is -- not just poor Sara went through this. I know a lot of you out there went through stuff like that or your kids have been.

John in California, go ahead, first -- John.

JON, CALLER FROM CALIFORNIA: Hi, Dr. Drew.

PINSKY: Hi, John.

JON: There are 10 alleged victims in the Sandusky case. So doing the math, it`s really hard to believe that all ten boys are lying.

I got a question -- so the histrionics and diagnosis for Sandusky sounds like a lot of crap.

PINSKY: Yes.

JON: Exactly what is histrionics is this some kind of smokescreen from the defense.

PINSKY: Of course it is, John.

But let me ask Sara this question. Did your -- your perpetrator, did the defense team for him come up with a crazy smokescreen that was hard to sit through? And I will explain what histrionic is in just a second.

ALVAREZ: Oh, yes, absolutely. They -- it was everything from I was a -- you know, horrible teenager to I had issues with drugs and alcohol to I was not doing well in school. Everything was -- you know, I was this horrible teenager and now I was just plotting against my poor stepfather. So, there was always something.

PINSKY: Yes. I mean, the way we blame the victims in this society is just phenomenal. So, pay attention to that part of Sara`s story. We blame the victim. When somebody gets raped, we blame the woman that was raped. Oh, why did you go out dressed like that? When somebody is sexually abused as a teenager or as a child, and gets into drugs and alcohol as a teenager, a-ha, a drug addict, you know, sort of victimizing his poor stepdad.

Let me tell you to answer the question, Jon, about the histrionic personality thing. It`s going to take about a minute here. Personality disorders are these life-long patterns of behavior. All right? Like people I think are familiar, I think with narcissistic personality where somebody feels empty inside they have to keep themselves puffed up and they really don`t think emotions have meaning. I know we all know people like this and they really don`t identify emotions in other people and so they exploit other people.

Histrionic is in the spectrum of narcissistic disorder. In fact, histrionic disorders almost exclusively thought to happen in women. So why they are pulling this stuff for Sandusky is kind of bizarre. Histrionic features in a male usually flip of on over into narcissistic disorder, which I think people again are familiar with.

Histrionic people are people that are flamboyant and have to be the center of attention and are very dramatic, and they are saying he needs to be the center of attention that`s what makes him histrionic.

Histrionics dress flamboyantly, I mean, they are really kind of -- think of an opera star or something that would be somebody who is sort of histrionic in style and I don`t see that in Sandusky.

Let`s go to Diane in Pennsylvania -- Diane.
DIANE, CALLER FROM PENNSYLVANIA: Hi, Dr. Drew. I wanted to tell you that I was 9 years old when I was molested. And it was by my girlfriend`s father.

PINSKY: Oh.

DIANE: And when he brought me back home to my mom, who had five children, he gave her milk. And when I looked up and saw how happy my mother was, I never said anything and I never told anyone anything until I was in my 30s, after I had a breakdown.

PINSKY: And, Sara, what kind of words of advice would you have for Diane? What would you like it ask her?

Diane, what would you like to ask Sara?

DIANE: Well, you know, I just had a comment, if I could about Sandusky. I don`t understand -- if you watch him, he is always smiling and everything. Any normal person under that type of scrutiny and pressure and being accused of those things wouldn`t act like that.

PINSKY: You wouldn`t think so. You would think he would be a little concerned about things there he is smiling in those pictures right now.

DIANE: He is always smiling -- I always see him smiling. And let me tell you, that is -- that`s not normal.

PINSKY: Well, at least it`s denial. I don`t know what that is, but at least it`s denial how serious this situation is.

Sara, any words of advice for Diane before we go to break?

ALVAREZ: No. I mean, it sounds like, you know, she told someone after all this time. I think that`s what I got from that. But, you know, that`s exactly how you feel, you feel like you`re letting someone down and you`re not doing the right thing or you`re making someone unhappy that you care about. That`s exactly what sexual predators prey on, is what you care about.

And that`s -- you know, as far as him being happy, you know, he`s -- he doesn`t take this seriously. In their sick minds, they really think that they haven`t, you know, done anything wrong, anything wrong. They think the children wanted to do this or they were participants in it.

So, this is just sick and you are looking into the mind of a very sick man. And that`s really all it`s about.

PINSKY: Sara, I want to pick up there after go to break. More calls. Stay with us.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

PINSKY: Now, welcome back.

Today, a second alleged victim testified in the sex abuse trial of Jerry Sandusky.

Back with us to discuss this is Sara Alvarez. She was actually raped by her stepfather and then had to withstand his personal cross-examination during trial.

So, Sara, as I understand it, he actually represented himself in trial and he was the one cross-examining you. I don`t even want to think what that must have been like. But I do want to ask you this.

We start -- we ended that last segment talking about how these person traitors literally believe that the children are desirous of participating with them in this way. Tell me how your perpetrator was able to pull you into that -- let`s call it a relationship. How did it go down for you?

ALVAREZ: I don`t know if it was -- yes, I guess it was a relationship. It was -- you know, I don`t know, that`s just -- that makes me stunned for words. I guess it was a relationship and it was -- you know, it was something that, you know, I understand when the 18-year-old was on the stand and, you know, how he was so close to it and he was feeling because being 28, you separate yourself from it and you like to think you moved on.

But, you know, in many ways, when you`re 18, you`re still a child and you feel like a child and people are still treating you like a child. So it`s very easy for him to get on the stand and break down in front of his perpetrator because this person probably did make him feel like he was in a relationship and feel like there was a special bond between him.

PINSKY: I`m going to stop you. That is how they do it right? Make you feel like there`s something special, they see something special in you. I use the word relationship. But let me put a modifier on it, it is a sick relationship. It`s a terribly sick relationship and it is one-sided. It is run by the perpetrator, right?

ALVAREZ: Right. Right.

PINSKY: And I`m so sorry -- listen, I hope you`re OK talking about it. It is not OK that anybody did what they did to you or any -- think about it, Sara, millions of kids in this country that go through this. It is stunning that we live in a time when this is happening.

And, you know, I just appreciate you being following talk about it. Can we talk about empowering the victim a little bit? How do kids break free of that if they are in that, I want to call it web -- if they are in that web, how do they get out?

ALVAREZ: I mean, there`s -- it`s really the people like, you know, like you and, you know, the advocates out there that are helping kids or, you know, the assistant coach. I know he testified today. There`s so much he could have done or just said to the kid, is there anything you want to talk about?

You know, here is this person in a position of power and there`s a young man or a young person there and it`s -- it`s really hard to get out. The best thing they can do is find someone they trust. But it`s an embarrassing subject.

So, you know, how do you tell people this is what`s going on with me? And the person that`s doing this to you is making you feel like you`re a participant and you`re just as wrong as I am if you tell or just so much emotional stuff that goes on into it. It`s very hard to get out.

PINSKY: I see, Sara, you still blame yourself for some of this and I hope you do forgive yourself, at least mostly. It`s hard. The victim blames themself and that`s part I sort of find the sort of soul murder they get into, right?

ALVAREZ: Yes. Absolutely. I mean, I`ve -- I mean, I`ve come a long way.

PINSKY: Oh, yes.

ALVAREZ: I have a done a lot.

PINSKY: Help people understand this. How is it that -- you know, humans have a way of re-enacting their traumas. Help understand how this then plays out in teenage life and young adulthood if they see evidence of this maybe in their family or children. How did it play out for you?

ALVAREZ: For me, I was, you know, I associated, you know, sex with love and that`s how I was cared about and that`s how, you know, I didn`t come from a -- you know, a lot of loving environment. So, to mix sex with emotion with a child, that`s the worst thing you can possibly do.

And then, you know, you`re -- you`re much more likely to get into bad relationship also, which I did. And just go down the wrong path in life, which I did for, you know, a while. But it`s very dangerous to mix sex and emotion with a young child. It`s detrimental.

PINSKY: OK. Let`s take a quick call before we go to our break here.

Lisa in Illinois -- Lisa, you have something for us? Lisa?

LISA, CALLER FROM ILLINOIS: Hi, Dr. Drew, how are you doing?

PINSKY: I`m great. Thanks for calling.

LISA: Good. I was molested at -- around the age of 4 or 5. I`m just starting to get flashbacks of this. I have a lot of other trauma in my life and I was wondering about the guys that are in the Sandusky situation, could they -- could this have been how it all started with them, with flashbacks? Is that normal?

Because I don`t remember -- it was with a family member and my dad died when I was 10. I was raped when I was 9. I was almost killed in a fire in `05. And I have a huge self-loathing and rage about me and I just -- I don`t know what to do with the flashbacks.

PINSKY: OK, Sara, I se you relating strongly to what she is saying and what she is describing is posttraumatic stress disorder which is so, so common from this problem. Again, as you have been -- when you have been traumatized, you will end up going out and re-dramatizing yourself and all of a sudden, something relatively minor will happen and set off this flurry of anxiety and depression and flashbacks and abusive thoughts.

LISA: I`m on antidepressants, I`ve seen therapists my entire life. I`m in my 40s and all of a sudden, my body just broke and just stopped and just said, you`re not getting out of bed, you`re not doing anything.

So I`m seeing a therapist, but what do you do when you don`t really remember?

PINSKY: It`s not about remembering, my dear. Sara, I will give you a chance to give a few words of encouragement for her before we go to break, it`s not about remembering. It`s about trusting other people, it`s about building the foundations of emotional regulation again and that happens in a relationship with other person and through very specialized sort of trauma treatment. I hope your therapist has experience treating trauma because there are definite things that need to be done.

But trust me, Sara, trust me on this, it gets better. Let her know how.

ALVAREZ: Oh, it absolutely gets better and sometimes when you`re finally a place in your life where you feel like you trust and you found someone you love, that`s when you completely break down, because that`s when you can finally let go and you feel safe enough to break down. And it is posttraumatic stress disorder because -- and there`s medicine and there`s treatment and it`s very intense treatment, but you can get help for this and it gets so much better.

And because I`m crying tonight, it doesn`t mean I`m not through the thick of it because I`m a strong person. But you know, I still have nightmares sometimes, too. And I will be honest, when I have too much to drink or I have too much wine, which I shouldn`t do every once in a while, I do have flashbacks and that`s not --

PINSKY: Yes.
ALVAREZ: -- it`s not what someone in my position will be doing. But, you know, every once in a while, I will have too much to drink and that`s exactly when the flashbacks --

PINSKY: Using or withdrawal, both will cause flashbacks. So when you`re coming off the wine or using the wine, both will induce the flashbacks. So, both you guy, not a good idea.

Now, next up, we`re going to talk to a man whose foundation is helping alleged Sandusky victims.

Stay with us. Take your calls.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

PINSKY: Welcome back. We have been talking about the Jerry Sandusky sexual molestation trial.

Joining us, Peter Pelullo. He started the foundation Let Go, Let Peace Come In to help adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The foundation is currently treating some of Jerry Sandusky answers alleged victims.

Now, Peter himself was a victim of childhood sexual abuse and recounts his story in the book "Betrayal and the Beast."

Thanks for joining us, Peter.

How long has your foundation been working with Sandusky so called or alleged Sandusky victims and what`s the status or what can you tell us about them now? How are they doing?

PETER PELULLO, "LET GO LET PEACE COME IN": Sure, good evening, Dr. Drew. I like to call the boys two of the heroes of the eight young men that have stepped up to testify because not only are they speaking for themselves, they`re speaking for millions of adults that have not been able to speak.

I think they are doing as well as can be expected. You know this is a life-altering event as I know and as I`ve written about. And is going to take a lot of time and I`m sure the -- by testifying, they took a hit to -- as Sara mentioned -- to the memories of what happened. But with time, I know this will be a booster for them and reinforce all the recovery that they are doing because this is a year after year situation --

PINSKY: Yes, a chronic process of recurring.

Peter, thank you for joining us. We are going to take a quick break and both Peter and Sara are going to stay with me and take your calls.

Again, our number is 855-DRDREW5, 373-7395.

And later on, after this -- after we finish this topic, a father kills a little girl`s alleged abuser. What should happen to that dad? Then after that, I`ll be taking your calls about anything, 855-DRDREW5.

Stay with us.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

PINSKY: Now, I asked Peter and Sara to stay with us. And I do want to get to more of your calls and we are in a bit of a time crunch. I only have 4 1/2 minutes or so with you guys. So, I do want to get to calls.

I`ve actually shortened the mixed bag segment at the end so we can talk to Peter and Sara some more.

Rainey in Louisiana, go ahead.

RAINEY, CALLER FROM LOUISIANA: Yes, I was molested as a child. When it happened, the first time it happened, I was confused. I didn`t know what was happening. So, I enjoyed it.

So, me enjoying it -- because you know, sex is supposed to be enjoyable between two married people. I thought that it felt good, so that gave me a lot of guilt.

PINSKY: Right. And, Rainey, that`s very common experience for -- how old were you when this happened?

RAINEY: I was about 7.

PINSKY: Yes, remember, the part of being the victim is you feel responsible for the whole thing and when you enjoy it on top of that becomes very shattering, very difficult to understand.

Sara or Peter, did either of you experience that sort of confusion?

ALVAREZ: I did. Young children will play with themselves in the bath, they will please themselves. So when an adult is doing this to you, it`s very confusion and you end up feeling very, very guilty. So, yes, of course.

PINSKY: Yes, it becomes -- you blame yourself. You feel responsible. You buy right into the crap what the perpetrator is saying. Blair in Texas, please go ahead. Blair?

BLAIR, TEXAS: Yes. Hi, Dr. Drew.

PINSKY: Hi, Blair.

BLAIR: Yes, sir.

PINSKY: Go right ahead.

BLAIR: I have a -- I`ve got a question about the case, about the Sandusky case. Why on earth would he do such things to those ten guys? It`s just really sickening. He`s a really sick guy.

PINSKY: Yes. Peter, I`ll let you answer that. It`s a broad enough statement for any of us to answer, I suspect, but go right ahead, Peter.

PETER PELULLO, "LET GO LET PEACE COME IN": Yes. You know, unfortunately, he`s a serial predator on children, and he set up the situation at Second Mile to put himself in a position where he could have access to children. And I think she`s right. I mean, it`s somebody that`s very, very sick. He needs extreme help.

PINSKY: And the crazy part about the reconciling all this is, oftentimes, the Sanduskys of the world the kids are feeling bad for, there`s a certain percentage of kids that are victims become perpetrators, which is really mind bending trying to understand all this. Marjorie in Canada, please. Marjorie?

MARJORIE, CANADA: Hi.

PINSKY: What do we got for you?

MARJORIE: How are you?

PINSKY: We`re good.

MARJORIE: Hi, Dr. Drew. I just want to say that when I was molested, I was five years old, and it was by my father`s best friend. It was started when we went camping, and he always made me sit on his lap. He`s followed me a lot that I went dry. And like the woman said before, sex is pleasure. You enjoy it.

PINSKY: Mm-hmm. And that was confusing for you?

MARJORIE: Yes, very confusing.

PINSKY: Yes. Have you had -- Marjorie let me ask you this, have you had treatment?

MARJORIE: No. That`s the point. I had no treatment, no flashbacks.

PINSKY: Yes, but listen, I don`t want to sort of say someone can`t go through an experience like this and be completely OK. I mean, sometimes, you know, things happen, but it has to affect you, it does. Sara, please bring in others if you would.

ALVAREZ: Yes. It`s definitely affecting her. It sounds like it is even from the way she`s speaking on the phone.

PINSKY: Yes.

ALVAREZ: She still sounds confused.

PINSKY: Yes.

ALVAREZ: She absolutely needs to talk to somebody.

PINSKY: Yes. I think, Marjorie, when you have these kinds of experiences, it shatters the upper limit to the child`s ability to regulate their emotions. Doris in Delaware, last question. Doris?

DORIS, DELAWARE: Yes. Hi. Dr. Drew, I wanted to say that when I was 13 years old, I was some place that I wasn`t supposed to be, according to my mother, and I was jumped by a bunch of boys from my junior high school and thrown up against a wall and molested. And because I didn`t react, because I was frozen, they thought I liked it.

Then they finally -- somebody scared them off. My friend was with me and I told her don`t ever tell anybody that this happened. I didn`t tell my mother or anyone else because I knew that I would be blamed for being where I shouldn`t have been.

PINSKY: Doris, it is disgusting that people blame the victim. The freeze response -- and people don`t understand this. People only think in terms of the fight or flight response, but the freeze response is what people do when they are stuck, when there`s no escape. And if you`ve been molested as a child, you learn the freeze response, and it becomes a way of getting through really dealing with all emotion.

You disassociate and response to everything. And that is a very primitive way of dealing with emotions that keeps you from every building the capacity to regulate. You`re not at fault.

Sara, Peter, thank you so much for joining us today. Peter, keep up the great work with these -- what we`re calling alleged victims. I do appreciate you both joining us.

PELULLO: Thank you, Dr. Drew.

PINSKY: And Sara, as always for sharing your story.

ALVAREZ: Thank you.

Jerry Sandusky trial: Judge allows hearsay evidence from janitor who heard Sandusky was 'licking' a young boy
By SARA GANIM, The Patriot-News
Published: Wednesday, June 13, 2012, 4:11 PM     Updated: Wednesday, June 13, 2012, 4:32 PM

BELLEFONTE -- A Penn State University janitor took the stand Wednesday afternoon and said he saw Jerry Sandusky and a boy exit a staff locker room in the Lasch football building on campus in 2000 right before another janitor told him he watched Sandusky "licking" the boy.
Ronald Petrosky took the stand after about 15 minutes of argument between attorneys over whether the jury should be allowed to hear what he was going to say.

The judge ruled they would. But it's been a topic of debate because the janitor who actually witnessed the event has dementia and can't take the stand himself.

Petrosky told jurors he called police and reported the incident after reading about similar allegations in the Centre Daily Times.

June 13, 2012
