Penn State Child Rape Scandal, Jo Pa Fired & Student Riot

College football is known for scandals that surround various teams. Usually these consist of programs that are paying or otherwise rewarding student athletes. And sometimes they protect players who get into trouble with the law. This weeks story concerning Jerry Sandusky  his alleged rape of young children and the colleges resulting coverup is unlike anything that has ever happened in the world of big time college sports.

Today we present links to the story, the original grand jury report and some video highlights from last night student demonstration/riot.  On Wednesday night thousands of students took to the streets protesting the firing of coach Joe Paterno. Mr. Paterno when informed that one of his coaches had anally raped a 10-year-old did nothing more than report it to his boss.  Thus by his silence allowing this predator to continue abusing young boys.

From the Pennsylvania Attorney Generals website

Child sex charges filed against Jerry Sandusky; two top Penn State University officials charged with perjury & failure to report suspected child abuse

“HARRISBURG – Attorney General Linda Kelly and Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan today announced that criminal charges have been filed against three Centre County men as the result of an extensive and wide-reaching grand jury investigation into reports of the sexual abuse of children.

The defendants include:

  • Gerald Arthur “Jerry” Sandusky, age 67, of 130 Grandview Road, State College,  former Defensive Coordinator for the Penn State University football team and founder of The Second Mile, a charitable organization that operates programs for young people.
  • Timothy Mark Curley, age 57, of 201 Meadowlark Lane, Boalsburg, the Director of Athletics for Penn State University.
  • Gary Charles Schultz, age 62, of 636 Rosslyn Road, Boalsburg, Senior Vice President for Finance and Business at Penn State University, a position that includes oversight of the Penn State University Police Department.

“This is a case about a sexual predator who used his position within the university and community to repeatedly prey on young boys,” Kelly said. “It is also a case about high-ranking university officials who allegedly failed to report the sexual assault of a young boy after the information was brought to their attention, and later made false statements to a grand jury that was investigating a series of assaults on young boys.”
