Penn State’s ex-president and two former top school administrators were ordered Tuesday to stand trial on charges accusing them of a cover-up in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
The name of Joe Paterno is beyond redemption.
A whistleblower and defamation lawsuit against Penn State will go forward, a judge ruled Tuesday, denying the university’s request to have it dismissed.
Jerry Sandusky said in interview excerpts broadcast Monday that a key witness against him misinterpreted him showering with a young boy in Penn State football team facilities more than a decade ago.
Some of the Paterno Report findings are shocking, and may radically alter the way in which many have viewed the case, and the legacy of a legendary coach:
Penn State’s lawyers asked a judge Tuesday to throw out a whistleblower and defamation lawsuit filed by a former assistant football coach who testified he saw Jerry Sandusky attack a boy in a school shower more than a decade ago.
A former Penn State graduate assistant who complained he saw former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky showering with a young boy on campus and testified at his sex abuse trial sued the university on Tuesday for what he calls defamation and misrepresentation.
Shortly after news broke that attorneys had identified Victim 2, the boy who Mike McQueary saw being raped in the shower by Jerry Sandusky, the recording of a voicemail from Sandusky to the boy has been released.
A man who claims to be the unknown victim molested in a Penn State shower by Jerry Sandusky in a case that led to Joe Paterno’s firing intends to sue the university for its “egregious and reckless conduct” that facilitated the abuse, his lawyers said Thursday.
Joe Paterno’s last win was a 35-10 victory over Wisconsin in State College Nov. 22, 1997. Who was Penn State’s quarterback in that game?
The defense in Jerry Sandusky’s child sex abuse trial sought to undercut testimony from a former graduate assistant who told jurors he saw the former Penn State assistant coach sexually abusing a boy inside a football facility shower.
A former Penn State assistant coach whose account led to Joe Paterno’s downfall told a jury Tuesday that he heard a “skin-on-skin smacking sound” in a campus locker room one night in 2001 and saw something that was “more than my brain could handle.”
Mike McQueary’s story is changing again and it could help Tim Curley and Gary Schultz fight off allegations that they failed to properly report suspected child abuse.
A letter from 382 former Penn State football players was released Wednesday showing support for Joe Paterno. Below is that letter in its entirety, with my comments in italics:
A Penn State assistant football coach testified Friday that he believes he saw former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky sexually molesting a boy but said he wasn’t 100 percent sure it was intercourse.
In the midst of a day-long media blitz Tuesday, Jerry Sandusky’s lawyer gave his client’s skeptics some advice he probably wishes he could take back.
Jerry Sandusky’s decision Tuesday to waive his preliminary hearing shifts the focus in the child sex-abuse scandal to two Penn State administrators accused of failing to properly report suspected abuse and lying to the grand jury investigating Sandusky.
Coaches accused of sexually abusing children could not – as has been alleged at Penn State University – hide behind their bosses under a bill introduced in the Illinois House.
I think the NCAA should minimize the chance of future abuses of power by pulling the plug on what made Joe Paterno’s so absolute – his endless reign.
Penn State police and their counterparts in State College said they had no record of a former graduate assistant reporting a sexual assault by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky on a 10-year-old boy in a campus shower, a detail that runs counter to claims made in an email to former teammates.
