  • Colo. Springs church school at center of sex abuse case closed last year due to enrollment

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The church school in Colorado Springs at the center of a sex abuse case is no longer in operation. The Hilltop Baptist School closed last year after enrollment dropped from about 200 to 130 students.

She was indicted this week along with two pastors and a former principal who allegedly failed to report the abuse. One of the pastors is her father and the other is an...

    Second Mile Staffers Quit Over Penn State Sex Abuse ScandalBy COLLEEN CURRY Nov. 17, 2011 The outrage over the Penn State sex abuse scandal has spilled over into anger at the management of the Second Mile charity, prompting an exodus of some furious board members and volunteers. The Second Mile, founded by accused child molester Jerry Sandusky, refused to say how many of its board members have resigned, although the group's former CEO Jack Raykowitz was forced to resign last week. The anger has rippled out from its headquarters in State College. At least three members of the Second Mile's...

The flat is part of a block which houses some ex-offenders 300yds from the victim’s own home and around 500yds from a school. Jean Masih, 49, saw the boy at the...

    The astonishing news in the past couple of weeks out of State College, Pennsylvania has left America reeling. It is not so much that a monster like former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky would do the atrocious things he reportedly did to at least 8 boys, but that it appears a massive cover-up allowed him to continue his detestable treatment of those poor kids who were under his “care.” Sandusky is charged with 40 criminal counts, 21 of them felonies, relating to sexual assault on at least 8 boys, some possibly as young as 7 or 8 years...

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — In the middle of Curtin Road, John Matko held one handwritten sign in his right hand and rested another against his jeans. Two inches of black tape obscured Penn State’s logo on the 34-year-old father’s hat, as he tried to ignore the jeers, slaps and beer hurled at him. “Put abused kids first,” one of Matko’s signs read. “Don’t be fooled, they all knew. Tom Bradley, everyone must go.”

    The Penn State University sex-abuse scandal certainly seems unique. College-football defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky (shown at left) could have been investigated as early as 1995 for abusing young boys, but instead was allowed to commit his crimes for another 10 years. School athletic director Tim Curley and senior vice president for business and finance Gary Schultz face charges of lying to a grand jury investigating Sandusky, and university president Graham Spanier has been fired. And even more headline-grabbing, famed head football coach Joe Paterno has also been discharged. While not accused of any criminally actionable behavior, the gridiron legend is...

    Westboro Baptist Church, best-known for picketing funerals of dead soldiers, is now taking its show of hate to Penn State - to protest the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal that has rocked the country and shocked the university.

On Saturday, Nov. 11, the WBC will be holding up its famously abrasive signs at Beaver Stadium in University Park, PA where the Penn State football team will take on Nebraska. According to the WBC website, "Penn State has the...

  • Questions on Sandusky Are Wrapped in a 2005 Mystery (Penn State)

    11/09/2011 10:32:36 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 80 replies
    One of the questions surrounding the sex-abuse case against Jerry Sandusky is why a former district attorney chose not to prosecute the then-Penn State assistant coach in 1998 after reports surfaced that he had inappropriate interactions with a boy. In 2005, divers searched the Susquehanna River in Lewisburg, Pa., for Ray Gricar, who was a Centre County prosecutor. The answer is unknowable because of an unsolved mystery: What happened to Ray Gricar, the Centre County, Pa., district attorney?

    The attorney representing former Penn State coach and The Second Mile founder, Jerry Sandusky, said his client learned of Coach Joe Paterno’s announcement he will retire, and is “distraught” over the latest developments at Penn State. While Sandusky maintains he is innocent, “he is saddened by what is happening to the reputation of Penn State,” Amendola said. “He feels absolutely awful. They’re taking down an entire athletic department." Amendola said he spoke Wednesday morning with Sandusky, who is still at his State College residence, which is staked out by media. Amendola said he's already at work on Sandusky’s defense, and...
  • Jerry Sandusky wrote a book called "Touched"

    Years before Jerry Sandusky was indicted on charges of sexually abusing boys, the former Penn State football coach wrote a book about his life. Over a period of ten years, beginning in 1991, Sandusky worked with former equipment manager and Penn State journalism student Kip Richeal to record what Sandusky called a "unique" life.
