Cop: Sandusky should have been charged in 1998
Former Penn State police officer Ronald Schreffler testified in court on Thursday that he investigated a 1998 incident in which a woman claimed former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky had showered with her son, and that he felt charges should've been brought against the coach then. Schreffler, who now works for the Department of Homeland Security, said he was among officers hiding in the woman's home when she confronted Sandusky about the situation. He said that he heard Sandusky tell her: "I wish I could ask forgiveness. I know I can't get it from you. I wish I were dead." The alleged victim in the 1998 incident also testified Thursday.
