Penn State Child Sexual Abuse Scandal
Jerry Sandusky’s lawyer on Wednesday asked for a delay in the former Penn State assistant football coach’s child sex-abuse trial, saying he needed more time to prepare and that he was still waiting for disclosure of prosecution material.
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.
Reporter Sara Ganim and members of The Patriot-News of Harrisburg staff won a Pulitzer Prize for local reporting Monday for its coverage of a child sex-abuse scandal at Penn State University.
The lawyer for the late Joe Paterno says his family was surprised and saddened by a report by Penn State trustees that cited a “failure of leadership” for the longtime football coach’s ouster.
Penn State has received a federal subpoena related to a former assistant football coach accused of molesting boys and is cooperating with the request, a university spokeswoman said Thursday.
The judge overseeing the child sex abuse case of Jerry Sandusky says the former Penn State assistant coach can see most of his grandchildren while he awaits trial.
Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky’s request for greater freedom of movement — and for visits from his young grandchildren — while he awaits trial on child sex-abuse charges was taken under advisement by a judge Friday, but prosecutors countered that Sandusky’s home isn’t a safe place for children.
Pennsylvania prosecutors say they’ll tell Jerry Sandusky the names of the 10 young men identified as victims of sex abuse allegedly at his hands by the end of the week.
Joe Paterno’s drawn out funeral services this past week opened my eyes to the blind and ignorant support fans have for their college football programs across America.
The second day of a three-day period of public mourning for Joe Paterno will culminate with the funeral and burial for the Hall of Fame football coach who became the face of Penn State University.
Former Penn State coach Joe Paterno will be buried Wednesday, and his family has scheduled three days of public memorial events this week.
Yes, you read that headline correctly. Former Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno died too early.
Joe Paterno was ousted as Penn State’s football coach in part because he didn’t meet a moral obligation to do more to alert authorities about a child sex abuse allegation against a retired assistant coach.
For the first time since the firing of Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno, the Penn State Board of Trustees spoke.
Paterno is still getting paid. Penn State is still honoring his contract. And yes, they plan on sending him off into the sunset just like they would any other employee who retired after years of service to the university.
After one questioner called the treatment of Paterno “unconscionable” on Wednesday, Erickson responded by saying that “We will certainly want to honor Joe as the future unfolds.”
New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien has agreed to become Penn State’s first new head football coach in nearly a half-century.
