Penn State Child Sex Abuse Scandal
After the NCAA brought the hammer down on Penn State University on Monday over the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal, and the cover-up by former football coach Joe Paterno and other top school officials, prospective student-athletes were weighing in on how the sanctions might affect Penn State’s recruiting.
According to a report, three men have come forward saying they were sexually abused by former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.
Defense attorneys in Jerry Sandusky’s child sex abuse trial suggested in their questioning Tuesday that investigators shared details among accusers, planting the seeds of the alleged victims’ evolving accounts of abuse.
A former Penn State assistant coach who worked with Jerry Sandusky testified Monday that he and other members of the football staff were present when Sandusky brought young boys into the team’s showers.
The mother of one of Jerry Sandusky’s alleged victims says her son’s underwear was frequently missing from the laundry and he claimed he’d thrown it away because he had an accident.
While much of the world cringes at the name Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State football coach does indeed have a small group of unrelentingly loyal supporters.
The teenager whose report of sexual abuse spawned a grand jury investigation into Jerry Sandusky has told jurors that a guidance counselor didn’t initially believe him because the former Penn State assistant football coach has a “heart of gold.”
The judge overseeing Jerry Sandusky’s child sex abuse case on Friday denied the defense’s request to have the charges dismissed, leaving all 52 counts intact with opening statements three days away.
Editor’s Note: The following is a piece from Esquire, written by Luke Dittrich, detailing the child sex-abuse allegations against former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky.
According to a report, the prosecution against former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky has obtained love letters written by Sandusky to the boys he allegedly molested over a 15-year period.
A jury was selected Wednesday in the child molestation scandal that brought down Joe Paterno, and the makeup of the panel left no doubt this is Penn State country.
Three of the 16 jurors and alternates needed for former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky’s child sex abuse trial were selected Tuesday morning as the high-profile case got under way in earnest after months of legal wrangling and intense publicity.
Paterno’s family said Tuesday through a spokesman that Paterno’s widow, Sue, would receive an initial payment of $10.1 million by the end of May, with the rest to be paid out over the next two years.
Penn State has agreed to provide millions in payments and benefits to Joe Paterno’s estate and family members under the late football coach’s employment contract, although a family lawyer says the Paternos did not sign away their right to sue.
Apparently, Jerry Sandusky’s wife, Dottie, is getting sick of the media parade outside of her home.
In an act to show support for the victims of sexual abuse, the neighbors of Jerry Sandusky delivered a powerful message.
With all the horror that surrounds the Penn State child sex abuse scandal, one college football expert thinks there are many lessons to be learned.
One day after the passing of Joe Paterno, many in the Penn State community are struggling to make sense of the events of the last three months.
Some of Paterno’s greatest critics have complained that he didn’t do enough when former graduate assistant Mike McQueary told him he had seen Sandusky doing something “of sexual nature” with a boy in the Penn State showers.
Former Penn State running back Franco Harris has taken a strong stance in supporting Joe Paterno since his ouster amid the Penn State child sex abuse scandal.
