Paterno said McQueary only reported seeing Sandusky "fondling or doing something of a sexual nature to a young boy," according to the grand jury's summary of Paterno's testimony. Paterno said in a Nov. 6 statement McQueary "at no time related to me the very specific actions contained in the grand jury report."
Amendola said there had been no plea negotiations, and he wouldn't say if he would call Sandusky to testify.
