Day 2 in Sandusky Trial: Victim 1 breaks down, Eye-witness details sexual abuse

Day 2 in the criminal case against former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky - Victim 1 testified Tuesday, detailing the alleged sexual abuse by Sandusky.

Mike McQueary, former Penn State graduate assistant gave his account of the time he witnessed Sandusky abusing a child in the shower room. In related news, the prosecutor said Penn State officials held a secret file of allegations of abuse by the former head coach.

Prosecutors: Sandusky file contradicts officials' testimony

Prosecutors say Gary Schultz, a former Penn State vice president who oversaw campus police, held a file that detailed alleged incidents pertinent to the investigation of former football coach Jerry Sandusky, who faces more than 50 counts involving sexual acts with 10 boys since 1994.

Schultz and Tim Curley, Penn State's former athletic director, have pleaded not guilty to charges of perjury and failing to report an alleged sexual assault of a child.

The file, which prosecutors say was initially withheld during the investigation, shows inconsistencies with what Schultz and Curley told a grand jury, according to court documents filed by prosecutors and obtained by CNN on Tuesday.
