UPDATE — A police detective who investigated Jerry Sandusky in 1998 says he still believes charges should have been filed then, but the district attorney didn't do so.
Ronald Schreffler testified Thursday he interviewed Sandusky in 1998 after a woman complained about her 11-year-old son and the former Penn State assistant football coach showering together.
Schreffler says he felt charges were warranted, but Ray Gricar, the DA at the time, didn't agree.
Gricar disappeared in 2005 and has been declared legally dead.
Earlier Thursday, the alleged victim in that 1998 encounter described Sandusky lathering him up and lifting him under a showerhead to rinse his hair.
Under cross-examination, the man acknowledged staying in contact with Sandusky for years.

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — A 25-year-old man whose 1998 encounter with Jerry Sandusky was investigated but resulted in no charges tells jurors that the former Penn State assistant football coach bear-hugged him in a locker-room shower.
The accuser says Sandusky put soap on his back and shoulders after a workout then lifted him up chest-to-chest to rinse his hair.
The man is identified by prosecutors as Victim 6. He says he blacked out at the time of the encounter, when he was 11 years old.
Penn State police investigated after the boy's mother became suspicious when he returned home with wet hair but authorities ultimately decided not to bring charges.
On cross-examination, the man testified that he could recall no further sexual contact with the coach.
Sandusky has denied all charges against him involving 10 alleged victims.
