    >>> officials are headed to trial. michael isikoff is again in state college , pennsylvania. michael, good morning.

    >> reporter: good morning, natalie. after some dramatic courtroom testimony, one question looms larger than ever here, why didn't anybody at penn state act to stop accused child molester jerry sandusky ? as students celebrated graduation from penn state over the weekend, key players in the school's sex abuse scandal gear up to go to trial. on friday, penn state assistant coach and star witness mike mcqueary took the stand and graphically described seeing a naked jerry sandusky engaged in what he called extreme sexual activity with a young boy . it was march 2002 when mcqueary, then a graduate assistant , went to the penn state locker room near the shower area. "the boy was up against the wall, jerry was directly behind him in a very, very close position. i believe jerry was sexually molesting him." mcqueary's testimony is key to the case against two former penn state officials, athletic director tim kcurley and senior vice president gary schultz , both failing to report it to authorities.

    >> i think it's a sad, sad, sad day when you think about all of these victims, and you just got your first taste of it.

    >> reporter: prosecutors also read from former coach joe paterno 's grand jury testimony. he told the panel an upset mcqueary came to see him the next morning at his home and told him he'd seen sandusky fondling a boy, something of a sexual nature. a grand jury report says paterno did report what mcqueary told to curley . curley met with mcqueary with schultz but neither took steps to investigate. curley described mcqueary told him they described they were "horsing around." judge wenner ruled the case against curley and schultz can proceed to trial. one of sandusky 's new lawyers offered a possible defense for what sandusky may have been doing in the shower for the first time. attorney karl rominger told a local tv zplaisandusky may have been teaching basic hygiene skills.
