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.
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.
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.
At its very roots, this scandal happened for the same reasons all other college scandals and ensuing cover-ups have occurred: College presidents, athletic directors and coaches have too much power and think they are invincible.
Penn State said Wednesday it was turning to a physician and member of its board of trustees, who played football and wrestled for the school, to serve as acting athletic director in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.
t’s the end of an era in the world of college football, but it wasn’t the storybook ending we had originally thought it would be.
Just hours after stepping down, two high-ranking Penn State administrators face arraignment Monday on charges they lied to a grand jury investigating former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky and failed to properly report suspected child abuse by the ex-football coach.
