Penn State Child Sexual Abuse Scandal
If he were alive today, Joe Paterno — the coach who stood for so long for character and integrity both on and off the football field — could be looking at charges such as child endangerment, perjury and conspiracy.
A day after not covering the findings of the Freeh Report, BTN announced they will air a Penn State Special Report at 8 p.m. CT Friday.
With Thursday’s release of the Freeh Report on the Penn State child rape scandal there is closure for a number of people.
If you turned on the Big Ten Network Thursday morning to watch the Freeh Report press conference then you were probably surprised when a replay of the Ohio State-Purdue football game popped up on your television.
The president of Nike Inc. says he has decided to change the name of the Joe Paterno Child Development Center, a child care facility at the company’s headquarters.
The Paterno family released the following statement Thursday in response to the Freeh Report.
Joe Paterno and other senior officials “concealed critical facts” about Jerry Sandusky’s child abuse because they were worried about bad publicity, according to an internal investigation into the scandal concluded.

Joe Paterno’s family has confirmed that the Penn State football coach dictated in December what was meant to be an opinion letter that was shown to a couple of former players.
The NCAA says that it will decide on whether to take action at the “appropriate time” in connection with its inquiry into Penn State and the child sexual abuse scandal that led to the ouster of Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno.
An internal investigation into whether football coach Joe Paterno and other Penn State officials helped cover up reports that Jerry Sandusky was molesting children in the school’s locker rooms will be released Thursday.
Penn State received more than $208 million in donations for the fiscal year that just ended, the second-highest total in university history despite the upheaval after the arrest of Jerry Sandusky on child sex abuse charges.
Despite past claims from the late Joe Paterno that he did not use e-mail — and more recent claims by his family and representatives that he did not use e-mail –The Chronicle of Higher Education has found evidence to the contrary.
This seems hard to believe, but the child sexual abuse scandal at Penn State is apparently giving Nittany Lions football recruits “motivation”.
Latest national data on sexual abuse of children shows that 1-in-4 girls and 1-in-10 boys report abuse.
Matt Sandusky told investigators he was abused after meeting his foster father through The Second Mile charity and a decade before Jerry Sandusky adopted him.
The report says the prosecution warned the defense that they would call Matt Sandusky to the stand as a rebuttal witness if the defense called Jerry Sandusky to testify.
Since the trial began last week, it has been unclear whether or not the defense would call Sandusky to the stand to defend himself because the cross-examination from the prosecutors could be costly.
Jerry Sandusky’s trial in the Penn State scandal opened in graphic fashion Monday with the first witness testifying that the retired coach molested him in the locker-room showers and in hotels while trying to ensure his silence with gifts and trips to bowl games.
As opening statements in the Jerry Sandusky trail got underway Monday morning, a new report surfaced that could lead to charges against former Penn State President Graham Spanier.
