Sandusky labeled 'likely pedophile' in 1998 report
msnbc.com ^ | March 24, 2012 | Michael Isikoff

Posted on 03/24/2012 7:21:02 AM PDT by John W

More than a decade before former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky was charged with more than 50 counts of child sex abuse, a psychologist warned university police that his actions fit that of a “likely pedophile’s pattern.”

The finding by State College, Pa., psychologist Dr. Alycia A. Chambers, the therapist for one of Sandusky’s alleged victims, was contained in the internal Penn State files of a 1998 police investigation of the former coach for showering and bear hugging her client and another young boy in the school’s athletic locker room.

And JoePa had NO indication of anything going on in ‘98 when he told Sandusky he was NEVER going to be head coach, and Sandusky summarily resigned?

Yeah, JoePa knew nothing, JoePa was never contacted during the ‘98 investigation of Sandusky raping a boy IN THE PENN STATE FOOTBALL FACILITIES!!!!

What a crock. The JoePa apologists are mentally deranged. My roots are in central PA, and to listen to folks bending over backwards to defend JoePa makes me sick.

Sandusky could have gotten a head coaching gig at any school he wanted, yet no school would touch him......why was that?

Based on information already in the public domain, Sandusky's behavior is classic pedophile behavior. Chambers is right. Seasock is an agency flunkie, but will be the "hired gun" for the defense.

I agree that there is no point in sullying the character of a dead man, but I think JoePa, were he still alive, would have a lot of explaining to do.

That being said, being a PSU alumnus and being mortified at everything that has come to light, I think its time to let the Paterno matter rest and focus on the rapist...

I think Sandusky’s lawyer will get a lot of this info suppressed if the case goes to trial. I’m already predicting that Jerry will walk as a result of technicalities and other things not being able to be shown to the jury. I’ve heard that psychologists are not allowed to explain grooming behavior to the jury. They’re not allowed to comment on it. If that’s the case, a lot of this will be moot.

I see this as a complete travesty of justice. The young men, once molested by Sandusky as children, will be re-victimized by the court system. The perpetrator will walk free, and victims of child molesters will refuse to come forward in the future.

Nobody will change the laws so that the victims will be protected. Pedophiles will win big. Sorry to be so pessimistic, but I have little faith in the justice system anymore.

when [Joe Paterno] told Sandusky he was NEVER going to be head coach, and Sandusky summarily resigned?

The facts are worse than that. Paterno met with Sandusky in May 1999 and Sandusky announced his retirement on July 1, 1999 effective at the end of the 1999 season.

The police report referenced in this article is dated May 1998. That means that Sandusky coached two season after this report, one of those seasons after announcing his retirement. And for those two seasons, he was allowed to bring a boy with him to the team's official pre-game overnights at Toftree's golf resort and conference center, where Sandusky and the boy sat at the coaches' table for the pregame banquets. According to the grand jury presentment, Sandusky sexually abused his overnight guest (Victim #6 during the 1999 season) at Toftree's, during those team overnights.

And Sandusky was permitted to bring a boy with him to both the 1998 Outback Bowl and the 1999 Alamo Bowl, after this report. According to the grand jury presentment, Sandusky sexually abused Victim #6 in San Antonio when he accompanied Sandusky to the Alamo Bowl.

Again why was not Sandusky even offered a job at another school after he left? Who tipped off all of the other programs?

That’s a great question. Certainly there had to have been rumors about Sandusky in the coaching circles.

I’m also wondering how all this information that’s supposed to be under seal is being leaked. I think it helps the defense argue against a fair trial.

I have this horrible feeling in my gut that Sandusky will walk, ala OJ, Michael Jackson, & Casey Anthony. Certain things that would weigh against Sandusky will be suppressed, so the jury will only see a small part of the evidence that would put him away. There will be one person who thinks there is “reasonable doubt”.

I have so little faith in our legal system anymore, and I think that’s sad.

I think V is getting at that if Joe knew about Sandusky in 98, he could have made it impossible for Sandusky to have continued molesting children.

Seems sometimes to my paranoid mind that there is an underground of people with the same orientation as him that have worked and continue to work to save him and his ilk. Scary.

I agree, let's focus on Sandusky. I'd also like to see if there will be any investigation whatsoever into the Second Mile and Jack Raykovitz. Why didn't he tell anyone on the Board when he was told that Sandusky was supposedly banned from bringing boys to PSU? Why was he silent?

Please, please, somebody please, do an investigation on Second Mile!

As noted above, it's a great point, given that he was considered one of the greatest defensive coordinators in college football history at the time he retired. Factually, I believe the name of one small school that pursued Sandusky post-retirement for a head coaching job has surfaced in several stories - simply mentioned in the story as an aside and not as the main focus of the story.

If pressed for the name of the school, I'd have to dig. I've tried several specific Google searches to include the name of the college in this response, but there's so much Sandusky information on the Internet that I believe I'd have to stumble across it by accident.

The key is that no high-profile program even whispered an indication of interest in Sandusky. And yet he was named the NCAA Assistant Coach of the Year the year he retired.

Virginia interviewed Sandusky for the HC job in 2000, but they gave Al Groh the job instead.

Also I think Maryland was looking at him, too, but I don’t think he got as far there.

Thank you. I think you may be the person who reminded us of that on an earlier post.

Some brief research suggests that: (a) Sandusky interviewed twice with UVA in Charlottesville; and (b) a group from UVA flew to Pennsylvania to meet with Sandusky once. Virginia eventually passed on Sandusky, questioning his commitment to being a head coach because he was spending too much time devoted to The Second Mile, which is the explanation given by Joe Paterno/Penn State for Paterno telling Sandusky he would not succeed Paterno as head coach at Penn State.

Sandusky didn't appear to be too disappointed to stay away from football and at The Second Mile. When the Cavaliers hired Al Groh instead, Sandusky was quoted in The Richmond Daily Press as saying:

"I'm a very complex person. I couldn't deny the importance of Second Mile in my life. I could have played a game and said I was something different than I am, but that's not me.”

Then, in 1991, Sandusky interviewed at Maryland and reportedly turned down an offer. Maryland then hired Mark Duffner from Holy Cross.

Those are two Division I schools with major programs - by which I mean major money, major facilities, committed boosters and administration.

On the other hand . . . where are the schools looking for a defensive coordinator?

It's difficult to believe that all the schools were scared off by a "he's paying too much attention to The Second Mile to be a coach," when he was the NCAA Assistant Coach of the Year, and coached over Penn State's first bowl game shutout, his final season.

I'm not sure if I'm the one who reminded you earlier, but I did remember reading about UVA somewhere around here.

If you are suggesting that there were rumors in the coaching circles, I think you're right. Sandusky's quote in the Daily Press is really creepy when you look back on it. He's been playing a different game with everyone for a long time. I've heard it called by the term "cognitive dissonance". Sandusky has fooled too many people for too long. I hope that the jig is up this time. I'm tired of the lip service that kids get from real abusers. So many people dropped the ball when it came to protecting the kids. It's time to understand who most of the real pedophiles are...very successful people who use their success as a mask for the criminal inside.

Sandusky, the hidden icon of homos everywhere. Why have we heard no further stories about the young boys that were pimped out to other homos in the same boys organization?

You think that quote was creepy? After telling that to The Daily Press, Sandusky said:

"[Coaching the Cavaliers] would have been neat in a lot of ways, but I've got a lot going on here, and I'll be OK.”

Well, yeah. I guess he did have a lot going on there in Happy Valley. Whether he's going to be OK . . . I don't know about that.

He gives one creepy comment, gaze, or chuckle after another, doesn’t he!

I hope that he is convicted, but I have serious doubts about that happening. Our court system will insure that certain things he’s done or said will not be allowed to be seen by the jury. Evidence will be suppressed. If the young men have the courage to go through with being on the stand, he may be convicted on some things, but I really have my doubts about whether he will receive any jail time at all.

I also think the safest place for him will be in prison. In prison, he will not be put into the general population. He will be protected there. If he is acquitted, I think he will be in jeopardy everywhere he goes.

I wonder about that, too. Is it because these men are so very powerful in their communities?

I’m hoping that the current grand jury is investigating that, but who knows. Someone needs to look at Jack Raykovitz for starters, and go on from there.
