A former Penn State defensive coordinator was accused Saturday of sexually abusing eight boys in a case that has rocked the Big Ten university.
Jerry Sandusky, 67 years old, was arrested Saturday and released on $100,000 bail after being arraigned on 40 criminal counts, the state attorney general's office said.
In addition, Penn State athletic director Tim Curley, 57, and Gary Schultz, 62, the school's vice president for finance and business, have been charged with perjury and failing to report what they knew about the allegations. Mr. Schultz's position includes oversight of the university's police department. They were expected to turn themselves in Monday in Harrisburg.
Mr. Sandusky had long been considered the heir apparent to Joe Paterno, the legendary Penn State coach who has the most victories in major-college football history. Mr. Paterno, 84, wasn't charged, authorities said, and the grand jury report didn't appear to implicate him in wrongdoing. When Mr. Paterno first learned of one report of abuse he immediately reported it to Mr. Curley, prosecutors said. Mr. Sandusky was no longer coaching at the time and it isn't clear whether Mr. Paterno followed up with Mr. Curley.
Mr. Sandusky retired in 1999 but continued to work with at-risk children through the nonprofit Second Mile organization he founded in 1977. He was charged with multiple counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, corruption of minors, endangering the welfare of a child, indecent assault and unlawful contact with a minor, as well as single counts of aggravated indecent assault and attempted indecent assault.

Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno did the right thing and reported an eye-witness report of child sex abuse by Jerry Sandusky in the football locker room in 2002, according to the indictment released this morning by the state Attorney General.
A source close to the investigation tells The Patriot-News that Paterno will not be charged, and will be a prosecution witness who will testify.

Does this man he’ll be going into Dem politics now?
gay pedophile coach ping.
He needs a bigger milstone, and a deeper.part of the sea.
child sexual abuse in a university locker room?????
Thanks, all tuckered out tonight, but I will spring into pingaction tomorrow!
His bad behavior was known to all BEFORE The 2002 incident. JP didn't report it to the police and they all continued to their old relationships with Sandusky meanwhile letting him prey on boys for another decade. Tis a very black mark on PSU AND Paterno.
It’s sounding like quite a few people knew about this. This might just end up being Paterno’s legacy, and it’s sounding like several people could be headed to jail over this.
Its interesting how male-on-male pedophiles are never called HOMOSEXUALS.
They all knew about him before the 2002 incident and they all did NOTHING after the 2002 incident. They all let him molest more kids for another decade ... all to prevent the scandal from coming out.
They are here.
This goes all the way up to PSU president Spanier.
There was also a 1998 incident that was investigated by university police but hushed up by university staff.
JP reported it to his supervisor but was TOTALLY aware that nothing was being done. He was part of the coverup. He just didn't lie to the grand jury like the other two guys did.
Yeah, that’s what I dont get. Do children go to Penn state now? I don’t know, maybe they go to another school but use Penn state for gym??
The dude met the children through his foundation, Second Mile which was set up to 'help kids' in trouble or bad situations. Imagine a ten year-old eyes when the dude mentions that he will take him on to the PSU football field and introduce him to players and coaches!
Second Mile which was set up to ‘supply fresh meat for the deviant homosexual’ in trouble or bad situations
Maybe it’s because not all homosexuals are pedophiles?
