Child Sex Abuse Scandal
The University of Illinois has received its part of a settlement from the fallout from the Penn State child sex abuse scandal, and is passing on the money to four agencies that help families deal with the trauma of child abuse.
A member of Penn State’s alumni board of directors living in Chicago said the sex abuse scandal that cost Joe Paterno his job as coach shouldn’t obliterate his otherwise exceptional career.
Just two weeks after Penn State was rocked by a child sex-abuse scandal, Syracuse Chancellor Nancy Cantor says the school will not turn a blind eye to child molesting allegations against longtime assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine.
Penn State University announced late Tuesday that it will appoint a special committee to investigate allegations surrounding former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky and his sex abuse scandal.
