    THE STAR WITNESS was anonymous, like each of Jerry Sandusky's victims. He was described in the grand jury presentment only as "a Penn State graduate assistant." Anyone reading the 23-page presentment released on Nov. 4, 2011, would be horrified by the prosecution's version of what the witness said he saw a decade ago. In the locker room shower inside the Lasch Football Building on Penn State's campus, he stumbled upon "a naked boy, Victim 2 ... with his hands up against the wall, being subjected to anal intercourse by a naked Sandusky. The graduate assistant was shocked but noticed that...

    The next president of Penn State will be a familiar face on campus here — Florida State President Eric Barron, a source confirmed Friday. Barron, a 20-year faculty member and a former dean of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, has been chosen to be Penn State’s 18th president. Penn State’s board of trustees will vote to hire Barron during a special board of trustees meeting at noon Monday at the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel. The board’s compensation committee also must approve his contract. Barron will succeed Rodney Erickson, who delayed retiring and opted to lead the university...

    Before the annual July 4 fireworks Thursday in Happy Valley, an eerily familiar looking cloud emerged. Like, a cloud that resembled the school’s late football coach Joe Paterno. Seriously. Check out the picture sent to Paterno’s son, Jay, in this post.

    A Penn State board of trustee member filed an appeal Monday afternoon with the NCAA over sanctions levied against the university after the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal. Three other trustees joined the appeal, which states that the consent decree university president Rodney Erickson signed with the NCAA agreeing to the sanctions is "null and void" because Erickson "lacked the legal authority" to enter into such an agreement without the board's approval. Trustees and a person with first-hand knowledge of the discussions said the move is a precursor to a federal lawsuit asking a judge to invalidate the sanctions, because...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Documents filed by the Attorney General’s office indicate new evidence has been uncovered against several former Penn State officials, including Graham Spanier and Gary Schultz. In documents obtained by KDKA-TV investigators, the Attorney General’s Office indicates former vice president Schultz kept a secret file with allegations regarding Sandusky and sex abuse. This comes after an NBC report alleges Spanier did not report alleged abuse because it would be humane to Sandusky to not report the matter. “Only recently was the commonwealth provided with a file containing documents relating to incidents involving Sandusky,” a statement from the Attorney...

    The children's charity at the center of the child molestation case against Penn State coach, Jerry Sandusky, will fold....requesting court approval to transfer its programs to Houston-based Arrow Child & Family Ministries.

Around $2 million in current cash assets will be transferred to Arrow to fund programs in Pennsylvania for up to two years. The...

    January 22nd was a sad day in America. A pitiful and depressing episode that confirms how a lawyer-controlled and weak-kneed society, ended with the tragic death of Joe Paterno. As sure as day turns into night, the actions taken last November by the Board of Trustees of Penn State University were responsible for the premature death of this great man. I grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio, next door to Paterno’s domain: Pennsylvania. My father graduated from Ohio State, and I was – and still am – a born-and-bred Buckeye fan. I clearly remember the emergence of Joe Pa at...

    Two tickets for Joe Paterno’s public memorial service were selling for nearly $100,000 on eBay before the website shut down the auction, CBS Sports reports. An auction appeared on the site after it was announced that there were no more free tickets for Thursday’s “A Memorial for Joe” service. The bids reached as high as $99,509 for the pair of tickets before it was taken down. Amanda Coffee, spokeswoman for eBay Inc., said the site has unspecified internal controls to remove inappropriate ads. She said eBay doesn’t “allow the sale of tickets to events in which all tickets are free...

    Sandusky seems determined for trial in abuse caseBy Ian Simpson | Reuters – 14 hours ago WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky appears determined to hold out for a trial on child sexual abuse charges that could put him in prison for the rest of his life, legal experts said. **SNIP** Sandusky has already laid out his potential defense, saying in an interview with Bob Costas of NBC television that he engaged in horseplay with alleged victims but stopped short of sexual intercourse or penetration, Mallios said. "Now that he's said that, unless he recants or...

    A last-ditch drive ends in disappointment for Penn State, which loses to Nebraska, 17-14. Not having any timeouts crippled the offense, which completed two passes short of a first down, including one with seconds left, but couldn't stop the clock. This is a different Saturday in State College. Immediately after McGloin's final pass fell incomplete, the Penn State crowd cheered the team's effort: the cheering grew to a roar as the two teams again met a midfield, such as they did right before the game. Again, as occurred several times during the game, there were chants of "We love JoePa."...

    Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky has been charged with sexually abusing eight children, with something like a dozen more also claiming they were victimized. That's horrible. Powerful PSU figures appear to have attempted to cover up what they knew. That makes it even worse. But if one rumor turns out to be true, this may become a story too awful to compare to any other. There's been nothing reported by an investigative journalist or law enforcement official so far, but a handful of media members are talking about investigations into whether Sandusky may have shared some of his victims...
