STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – A former Penn State football assistant coach who just won a multimillion-dollar verdict over his treatment after Jerry Sandusky was arrested has pleaded guilty to a hunting violation.

Mike McQueary pleaded guilty Wednesday to using bait and paid more than $200 in fines and fees, according to online court records.

WJAC-TV says the Game Commission cited McQueary for using corn and other substances to attract deer to a tree stand while archery hunting in Centre County.

The 42-year-old McQueary was cited two days after a jury awarded him $7.3 million in a defamation and misrepresentation case against the university.

He’s testified he saw Sandusky sexually abuse a boy in a team shower 15 years ago, and reported it to school officials.

Messages at McQueary’s home and lawyer’s office weren’t returned.
