Posted on 11/05/2011 9:34:57 PM PDT by Zakeet
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.
Ex-Penn State Coach Sandusky Arrested on Sex Charges
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?
The Penn State NAMBLA Lions.
As a current Penn State student, I must say this is truly sickening.
As the parent of a current Penn State student, I completely agree with you.
While it’s perhaps a bit off topic, it seems that high-level whitewashing of wrongdoing by influential people affiliated with Penn State has become something of a tradition.
(I am referring to the free pass given to Michael Mann of Climategate infamy.)
Nice to read that Coach Paterno is on the right side of this mess.
As long as they’re cleaning out criminal pedophiles and their protectors on the Penn State faculty and administration, they may as well drive the paddy wagon over to Professor Michael Mann’s offices to detain the famous global warming data fraud artist and grant hustler.
I’ve always been amused that Penn State is located so close to the State Correctional Institution - Rockview, or the “State Pen”, a huge penitentiary located in Bellefonte, PA on the road that leads from Interstate 80 to the university’s campus in State College, PA.
Or am I just being “obtuse”?
Yeah he was using the University facilities for a troubled youths program. One of the kids was 11 when the abuse started.
Paternos legacy,,,covering up child sexual abuse.
Not even close. JoePa dominates that AD and, at best, it was his people that covered it up. Not being charged yet is no sign of innocence.
Just what is with these homosexual pedophiles? And just why do some cover-up for them? This is so wrong on so many levels. Shouldn’t the University be sued for big $$$$$? Just how many innocent lives were damaged and possibly ruined? This is more than pathetic.
Here in NY educators (which Paterno technically is) are mandated by law to report suspicion of child sexual abuse to authorities. I'm sure the same thing is true in PA. If Paterno knew and didn't report this than he is certainly culpable.
“WE ARE...PEDO STATE”
What? Too soon?
I’m Penn State Alumni—Class of ‘65.
There is something troubling me. It appears Penn State allowed Sandusky to use Penn State facilities for his Second Mile foundation after being reported by Coach Paterno and retiring. I understand a grand jury did not recommend charges be brought against the man. But it would seem an act of extremely bad judgement to allow Sandusky access to Penn State facilities.
This story is in its early stage reporting so I may be wrong in my conclusions. I hope so.
Like most universities with football teams Penn State has summer camps for kids. Two of my sons attended those camps when Sandusky was still coasching at PSU. They were not molested nor do they have any knowledge of same.
Obviously, Sandusky is a sick puppy. Threw his whole life away due to his apparently uncontrollable pedophilia. If even only one of these charges stand up he deserves no mercy. God knows how he may have screwed up the kid/s.
A graduate student at Penn State University who discovered or allegedly discovered Sandusky assaulting a young boy in the showers in the football building in the locker room of the Penn State University Campus, he said.
In addition to coaching at Penn State, Sandusky worked with at risk children through his Second Mile foundation, the prosecutors spokesman said.
We believe that all eight of the victims hes accused of sexually assaulting were identified and were part of the Second Mile program, Frederiksen said.
Coach Joe knew about the dude's problems BEFORE the 2002 incident and knew that NOTHING was done about the 2002 accident. JP and all the way up to the PSU president KNEW. They were ALL in on the coverup.
According to the grand jury, the assaults occurred in a variety of locations Penn State football facilities, Mr. Sanduskys home, a high school, a golf resort near the universitys State College campus and none of the boys were thought to be older than 13 when they first met Mr. Sandusky. The report also detailed the boys access to the Penn State football team; Mr. Sandusky retained access to many athletic facilities even after his retirement in 1999 and had an office in the Lasch Football Building.
Mr. Sandusky brought one boy to San Antonio for the 1999 Alamo Bowl, according to the report, but threatened to send him home when the boy resisted his sexual advances. He reportedly guaranteed that boy that he could walk on to Penn States football team, and the boy was shown in a photograph with him that appeared in Sports Illustrated.
A grand jury report, which recommended charges, said the first to come to light was a boy who met Sandusky when he was 11 or 12. The boy received expensive gifts and trips to sports events from Sandusky, and physical contact began during his overnight stays at Sandusky’s home, jurors said.
Sandusky was banned from the child’s school district in Clinton County in 2009, after his mother reported alleged sexual assault to his high school. That triggered the state investigation that culminated in charges Saturday.
Ms Kelly said that seven years before that, in 2002, a graduate assistant saw Sandusky sexually assault a naked boy, estimated to be about 10 years old, in the locker room of the Lasch Football Building on campus.
The grad student and his father reported what he saw to Mr Paterno, who immediately told Curley, prosecutors said.
The ‘coverup goes all the way up to PSU Spanier. Even now he is still trying to plug the holes...
I wish to say that Tim Curley and Gary Schultz have my unconditional support, Penn State President Graham Spanier said in a statement, which an athletic department official said would be the schools only comment on the matter. I have known and worked daily with Tim and Gary for more than 16 years. I have complete confidence in how they have handled the allegations about a former University employee.
They can't help it, they're just "born this way".
If there are gay genes and bisexual genes, there must be pedophile genes, bestiality genes, sadomasochism genes and genes to explain every other sort of sexual fetish or proclivity. Surely genetics have no regard for cultural norms or age of consent laws, right?
Seems to me Paterno could have done a lot more to stop this, even if he did report it.
I would have liked to have been a fly on the wall at those Paterno-Curley-Shultz-Spanier various meetings talking about how to make this go away ...
He actually had free run of a high school too, where he was an unpaid assistant coach.
Several of the sexual attacks occurred there.
the percentages are extraordinary....
This wouldn’t happen if football coaches were allowed to marry.
You know, I bet most public schools are probably doing those things these days and calling it “sex ed”
Breaking news? This has been going on for days.
grooming and recruiting is an important part of the homosexuality movement. NAMBLA was part of the homo rights movement from the start.
Do I hear an "Amen"!!?
NYC schools thinks 11 is the right age to start encouraging them to have sex, did you see those stories?
