Penn State's internal investigative report into the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal could be released within a month, according to a report in the Harrisburg Patriot-News.

Speaking at a Capitol news conference Friday in Harrisburg, Penn State President Rodney Erickson said he expects the investigation to be completed by mid-to-late July. The report will then be released publicly at the same time university trustee members see it.

Excerpt from above article:

http://edition.cnn.com/2012/06/30/justice/penn-state-emails/index.html
Disturbing e-mails could spell more trouble for Penn State officials
June 30, 2012


 ::snipping2::
Curley refers to a meeting scheduled that day with Spanier and indicates they apparently discussed the Sandusky incident two days earlier.

Curley indicates he no longer wants to contact child welfare authorities just yet. He refers to a conversation the day before with Paterno. It's not known what Paterno may have said to Curley.

Curley writes: "After giving it more thought and talking it over with Joe yesterday, I am uncomfortable with what we agreed were the next steps."

The athletic director apparently preferred to keep the situation an internal affair and talk things over with Sandusky instead of notifying the state's child welfare agency to investigate Sandusky's suspicious activity.


"I am having trouble with going to everyone, but the person involved," Curley allegedly continues.

Curley writes he'd be "more comfortable" meeting with Sandusky himself and telling him they know about the 2001 incident and -- according to a source with knowledge of the case -- refers to another shower incident with a boy in 1998 that was investigated by police, but never resulted in charges against Sandusky.

Curley writes to Penn State's president Spanier that he wants to meet with Sandusky, tell him there's "a problem," and that "we want to assist the individual to get professional help."

In the same purported e-mail provided to CNN, Curley goes on to suggest that if Sandusky "is cooperative," Penn State "would work with him" to tell Second Mile. If not, Curley states, the university will inform both Second Mile and outside authorities.
Curley adds that he intends to inform Sandusky that his "guests" won't be allowed to use Penn State facilities anymore.

"What do you think of this approach?" Curley allegedly wrote to Spanier.

About two hours later, Spanier responded to Curley in another e-mail and copied Schultz. Spanier allegedly called the plan "acceptable", but worries whether it's the right thing to do, according to two sources.

"The only downside for us is if the message (to Sandusky) isn't 'heard' and acted upon, and we then become vulnerable for not having reported it," Spanier purportedly wrote.

"But that can be assessed down the down the road. The approach you outline is humane and a reasonable way to proceed," he adds.

The next afternoon, Schultz allegedly responded to the Penn State president and its athletic director. Schultz signs off on handling the matter without telling anyone on the outside, at least for now.

"This is a more humane and upfront way to handle this,' Schultz purportedly wrote. But he made clear Penn State should inform Sandusky's charity Second Mile "with or without (Sandusky's) cooperation."

As for telling child welfare authorities, he added, "we can play it by ear."

No one ever reported the 2001 shower incident. A decade later, a 2011 grand jury found no Pennsylvania law enforcement or child welfare agency was ever told.

CNN Report: Emails Show Spanier, Curley, Paterno Weighed Options After 2001 Sandusky Shower Incident
June 29, 2012


 ::snipping2::
The lawyers for Curley and Schultz, Caroline Roberto and Tom Farrell, told CNN in a statement:

“As Governor Tom Corbett stated, ‘If we are going to do this case, we had to have the best possible case to go against somebody like Mr. Sandusky who was … loved by everybody … carried out of the football stadium on the shoulders of his football team.' 

"For Curley, Schultz, Spanier and Paterno, the responsible and ‘humane’ thing to do was, like Governor Corbett, to carefully and responsibly assess the best way to handle vague, but troubling allegations. Faced with tough situations, good people try to do their best to make the right decisions.”

A spokesman for Paterno’s family told CNN that neither he nor the family had seen any emails. Paterno died Jan. 22 from complications related to lung cancer.

Penn State costs from Sandusky scandal reach nearly $12 million
Published June 29, 2012, Updated June 30 2012

As of the end of April, the Jerry Sandusky scandal had cost Penn State close to $12 million in legal fees and other expenses.

The $11.9 million price tag includes $7.6 million in fees for crisis communications and the bill for the investigation Penn State hired Louis Freeh to do.
 ::snipping2::
The $12 million in costs includes $2.6 million that was paid out for university legal services and defense. Another $870,335 went to pay legal fees for former administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz and former President Graham Spanier.

The Penn State bylaws say the university will cover the legal fees for officers facing civil or criminal action.
 ::snipping2::
The university posts the latest expenses on its “Progress” website. The $12 million is up from the end of March, when the price tag for the scandal was $9.6 million. The university expects reimbursements from its insurance policies to cover some of the costs.

Lawyer: Paterno didn't compromise investigation
June 30, 2012

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — The lawyer for Joe Paterno's family says the Penn State football coach didn't interfere with or attempt to compromise the investigation into sex abuse allegations against ex-assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

Wick Sollers, the Paterno family lawyer, said in a statement Saturday that Paterno testified truthfully and to the best of his recollection before the grand jury
 ::snipping2::
The emails show athletic director Tim Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz intended to report the allegation, then reconsidered.

Sollers said it would be inappropriate for the family to comment because it does not possess the emails. He says the emails didn't originate with Paterno or go to him because he never utilized email.

Paterno Family Lawyer: Former Coach `Did Not Interfere With or Attempt to Compromise Any Investigation'
June 30, 2012

Updated at 6:25 p.m. Saturday

Wick Sollers, who represents the Paterno family, said in a statement Saturday that former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno "did not interfere with or attempt to compromise any investigation."

CNN reported Friday night that more than two weeks after former assistant coach Mike McQueary discovered Jerry Sandusky in a shower in the Lasch Football Building with a young boy in 2001, three top Penn State administrators reportedly exchanged a series of emails about whether to contact The Second Mile or the state Department of Welfare.

In the report, CNN said former athletic director Tim Curley referenced a conversation he had with then-Penn State president Graham Spanier, noting Curley wanted to talk with Sandusky before taking any action.

An email from Curley also indicated he had talked with Paterno about the situation.

“After giving it more thought and talking it over with Joe yesterday, I am uncomfortable with what we agreed were the next steps,” Curley was quoted saying in an email. "I would be more comfortable meeting with the person and tell them about the information we received and tell them we are aware of the first situation."

The complete statement issued by Sollers Saturday:

“Some number of email exchanges between former Penn State officials have apparently been leaked to the media. Since the Paterno family is not in possession of these emails, it would be inappropriate to comment on their supposed content. To be clear, the emails in question did not originate with Joe Paterno or go to him as he never personally utilized email.

“From the beginning, Joe Paterno warned against a rush to judgment in this case. Coach Paterno testified truthfully, to the best of his recollection, in the one brief appearance he made before the Grand Jury.

“As he testified, when informed of an incident involving Jerry Sandusky in 2001, Coach Paterno, followed University procedures and promptly and fully informed his superiors. He believed the matter would be thoroughly and professionally investigated and he did not interfere with or attempt to compromise any investigation.”

Measure unlikely to take  Sandusky’s state pension
June 30, 2012

HARRISBURG — A Pennsylvania House member running for statewide office is proposing legislation that would retroactively strip Jerry Sandusky of his state pension, but experts said they doubted the General Assembly would take that route.
 ::snipping2::

The Tribune-Review reported Wednesday that short of a change in the law before his sentencing, Sandusky will continue collecting a $58,898 annual state pension. No sentencing date has been set, but it is likely to occur before the General Assembly returns to session in mid-September.
 ::snipping2::
The Legislature was set to leave the capital this weekend for summer recess without approving a bill to change the 1978 pension forfeiture act before Sandusky is sentenced and his conviction becomes final.

The pension forfeiture act specifies 22 crimes related to public corruption that result in automatic forfeiture of a state pension for current or former state employees. But it does not include corruption of minors or other sex crimes involving children.

Rep. Eugene DePasquale, a York Democrat, sent a memo Friday seeking co-sponsors for his legislation that would add sex crimes against minors to the forfeiture act. DePasquale, the Democratic nominee for state auditor general, acknowledged there may be difficulty in applying the forfeiture to Sandusky after he is sentenced. His legislation sets June 1, 2012, as the cutoff date.

“While I know many are concerned about the constitutionality of a retroactive change to pension laws, I feel that Mr. Sandusky should not be rewarded with a public pension, paid for by the good citizens of this commonwealth, after committing such heinous crimes,” DePasquale wrote. He said, “Justice will not truly be served until his pension is revoked.”

DePasquale’s opponent in the November auditor general’s race, John Maher, said, “A public official who corrupts a minor has committed public corruption.”

He said the state pension board should revoke Sandusky’s pension and let him fight to get it back.

“It sounds like a textbook case of ex post facto,” said Christopher Borick, a political science professor at Muhlenberg College. “I don’t think anyone wants to see Jerry Sandusky rewarded, but we are governed by rules, and one of the rules is you can’t make rules after the fact.”
 ::snipping2::
A joint State Government and Finance Committee will hold a hearing in August to consider all House bills dealing with an expansion of the pension forfeiture law, said House Republican spokesman Stephen Miskin. There are at least two others.

Uncovered e-mails close book on Paterno's legacy
By Scott Ostler
June 30, 2012

(06-30) 20:45 PDT -- The Penn State horror story has taken a twist for the sicker.

And Joe Paterno's legacy is now more clearly defined.

E-mails have been uncovered by NBC. Three scared sheep - Penn State's president, vice president and athletic director - were going to alert the real authorities to the possible misdeeds of Jerry Sandusky, until the athletic director spoke with Paterno and persuaded the other two Sheep not to be so rash.

Subsequently, at least four more young boys were molested by Sandusky.

Paterno apparently persuaded the group to go easy on old Jerry. The athletic director, Tim Curley, e-mailed the other Sheep, "If Sandusky is cooperative, we would work with him."

Astounding. The Three Sheep, part of a huge flock of JoPa worshipers, decided that confronting Sandusky rather than turning him in "is a more humane and up-front way to handle this."

More humane, unless you're a 10-year-old kid and Jerry Sandusky is in your driveway a week later, the old Tickle Monster, honking his horn, bearing gifts.
