Several states implement child abuse laws after Sandusky case
August 1, 2012

As the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse case unfolded in Pennsylvania over the past eight months, several states have introduced new legislation in hopes of preventing a similar situation from happening in their areas.

All U.S. states have laws mandating who is required to report child abuse, and Illinois, Louisiana, California and Pennsylvania are just four states that have recently written new laws, amended current ones or introduced new bills that detail who is required to report suspected child abuse.

Second Mile calls off plans for probe
Aug 3 '12

The troubled youth charity ensnared in the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal has called off plans for an internal investigation, the nonprofit's chief said.
 
The decision this spring to close the Second Mile has eliminated the need for an exhaustive inquiry into what past leaders knew and when, said chief executive David Woodle, who has led the organization since the arrest of the former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach last year.
 
"We're in a different situation now," Woodle said. "We're getting ready to go out of business."
 
The Second Mile, which Sandusky launched as a group foster home in 1977, has fallen on hard times since the arrest of its founder last year on charges he molested 10 boys met through the charity.
 
Donors have dried up, board members across the state fled, and the organization's longtime leader, Jack Raykovitz, resigned amid controversy.  ::snipping2::

So if we use the reasoning that Second Mile is using, every child molester out there who claims he/she has stopped, who claims to have become a regular good citizen (FTR, they are incurable, imo) should be allowed to carry on with life as though nothing happened.    They better dig and dig and dig into the Second Mile and everyone ever remotely connected to it.  IMO, they aren't going to, they can't afford to because it involves too many powerful people.  They threw Sandusky and Paterno out there are sacrificial, albeit guilty as sin, lambs thinking those big names would con the public into believing that was the end of it.  I doubt they are even the true beginning of it.

Paterno family wants to appeal Penn State sanctions
August 3, 2012


(CNN) -- Joe Paterno's family said Friday it intends to appeal the National Collegiate Athletic Association's sanctions against Penn State University in the aftermath of the child sexual abuse scandal.
But the family's plans hit an immediate roadblock.
"Penn State's sanctions are not subject to appeal," said NCAA spokesman Bob Williams.
 ::snipping2::
The family contends Paterno qualified to appeal the sanctions because he was named in the consent decree and in the Freeh report.

Paterno Family Files Appeal Against NCAA
August 3, 2012

Earlier this afternoon, lawyers on behalf of the Joe Paterno family sent an official appeal letter to the NCAA relating to the sanctions levied against the Penn State football team.

The appeal comes on the grounds that Joe Paterno is an “involved individual” because he is mentioned in both the NCAA consent decree and the Freeh report. The family requested a 30-day period to submit a written response to support their appeal.

The letter can be found below in it’s entirety.  (at link)

Karen Peetz: The Board and the University Will Comply With NCAA Sanctions
August 4, 2012

Penn State Board of Trustees Chairwoman Karen Peetz released her monthly statement and said the board intends to accept the NCAA sanctions and expressed support for Penn State President Rodney Erickson.
On Friday, the family of late football coach Joe Paterno said they planned to appeal the sanctions, which included vacating 111 of Paterno's wins.
NCAA Vice President of Communications Bob Williams later said "the Penn State sanctions are not subject to appeal."
The complete statement issued by Peetz is below and also available at http://www.psu.edu/trustees/chairmanupdatesaugust12012.html

Paterno family pursuit of record goes from insulting to irrational
By Greg Doyle
August 3, 2012

The victims of Jerry Sandusky want their lives back.

The relatives of Joe Paterno want their victories back.

Compassion? Looks like it skipped every generation of the Paterno family, which sent an indignant letter to the NCAA on Friday demanding an appeal of the sanctions levied July 23 against Penn State -- and against Joe Paterno. The NCAA swatted the letter down, saying the sanctions aren't subject to appeal.

That's justice, but so is this: Now the world knows that lovable ol' JoePa wasn't the only cold-blooded Paterno. Turns out it runs in the family.

Not two months ago, several young men testified about the unspeakable crimes perpetrated on them as boys by Sandusky. The victim of the shower assault at the Penn State football building has come forward, and like the others he is considering a civil lawsuit as he tries to put his life back together -- a futile exercise I'd compare to working a jigsaw puzzle without several pieces. Jerry Sandusky snuck around in the shadows and destroyed those pieces while Joe Paterno held the door for him.

And on Friday, the Paterno family said it wants the coaching record back.

NCAA to Paterno family: Don't bother appealing
Aug 4 '12

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Joe Paterno's family said it planned to appeal the sanctions imposed by the NCAA against Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. The governing body's response: Don't bother.

Family lawyer Wick Sollers in a letter sent Friday to the NCAA said the Paternos would like to appeal the "enormous damage" done to Penn State, the community, athletes and the late Hall of Fame coach. He died in January at age 85.
 
But the NCAA quickly rejected their plan. "The Penn State sanctions are not subject to appeal," spokesman Bob Williams said.   ::snipping2::

NCAA rebuffs Paterno family appeal
August 4, 2012

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Joe Paterno's family said it planned to appeal the sanctions the NCAA imposed against Pennsylvania State University over the Jerry Sandusky child-sex-abuse scandal. The college sports governing body's response: Don't bother.

Family lawyer Wick Sollers wrote Friday to the NCAA that the Paternos would like to appeal the "enormous damage" done to Penn State, the community, athletes, and the late Hall of Fame coach. Paterno died in January at 85.

But the NCAA quickly rejected the proposal. "The Penn State sanctions are not subject to appeal," spokesman Bob Williams said.
 ::snipping2::
The Paternos' lawyer said the family had a right to appeal because it was named in the NCAA's consent decree and the Freeh report. The family said it hoped to formally submit an appeal and requested oral arguments before the NCAA's infractions appeal committee, its executive committee, or other leaders.

Sollers wrote that "the NCAA and Penn State's board [of trustees] chair and president entirely ignored the fact that the Freeh report, on which these extraordinary penalties are based, is deeply flawed because it is incomplete, rife with unsupported opinions, and unquestionably one-sided."

He called the sanctions possibly the most important disciplinary action in the history of the NCAA and said the organization had handled the situation in a fundamentally inappropriate and unprecedented manner.

Michael McCann, director of the Sports Law Institute and a professor at Vermont Law School, said Friday he doubted that the Paternos had standing to appeal.

"He's not alive, and his family itself would not seem to have any legal standing to challenge the NCAA," McCann said, "at least in terms of filing an appeal."

I've heard plenty of moaning because the NCAA sanctions punished students and athletes that didn't have a part in the child molestations or cover-up.  So then why are some doing that very thing by harshing on student athletes that are transferring? It speaks volumes about priorities imo.  Give the kids a break and support them in their decisions, whether it be stay or transfer.  JMHO

Penn State Wide Receiver Is Headed to Oklahoma, PSU Fans Attack
August 5, 2012

It was announced via twitter on Saturday night and confirmed by Penn State Sunday that Justin Brown has decided to transfer to Oklahoma. Brown will join an already heavy wide receiver corps as early as Monday says OU spokesperson, Pete Moris.
 ::snipping2::
On another note, Penn Staters are mad. Real mad. Before Silas Redd announced his transfer to Southern Cal, he closed his twitter account. Brown should have maybe thought about doing the same thing. The good folks over at SBNation were nice enough to screen cap some of the “hate tweets” Justin got when the news broke. I understand the anger of the Penn State loyal, but attacking a kid who quite possibly wants to play in bowl games, or just wants to distance himself from the tragic happenings in Happy Valley is classless. Here are a couple of the tweets:

If the Paterno family didn't like the NCAA sanctions they sure won't like this.

Penn State trustees filing appeal
August 6, 2012

At least four Penn State Board of Trustees members intend to file an appeal Monday afternoon with the NCAA over sanctions levied against the university after the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal because they say the NCAA did not give the school due process in meting out its punishment.

Trustees and a person with first-hand knowledge of the discussions said the move is a precursor to a federal lawsuit asking a federal judge to invalidate the sanctions, because trustees expect the NCAA to reject the appeal.

The trustees are also trying to determine whether university president Rodney Erickson had legal authority to sign a consent decree agreeing to the package of sanctions -- a $60 million fine, a four-year bowl ban, scholarship losses and the vacating of wins from 1998 through 2011.

Commonwealth Responds to Schultz, Curley Motion for Discovery
By Laura Nichols
August 6, 2012The Attorney General's Office filed its response to a request from former Penn State administrators Gary Schultz and Tim Curley for discovery materials and denied the defense most of the information it was seeking.
"The Commonwealth has and will continue to honor its discovery obligations as it relates to prepared interview statements by investigators," the Attorney General's Office said in court documents filed Aug. 3. "Any statement that is prepared during the course of this ongoing investigation has been or will be disclosed by the defense."
However, when it comes to "notes or other items" sought by the defense, those requests were denied.
In the defense's initial request, it asked for any written or recorded reports of mental examinations, scientific tests or expert opinions of any witnesses including John McQueary and Mike McQueary.
The Commonwealth said no such records exist.

@JeffThomas0409 Since NCAA v. Tarkanian? Would love to see current NCAA membership agreement. Bet it speaks to due process (lack there-of).

@DaveCC1109 I don't think the NCAA will even acknowledge this. NCAA will say it only speaks with members. Dissent trustees aren't members.

@BMWKing1 They're taking a stand but probably lack standing - they need to get the Board to sue on behalf of university.

@RalphCindrich @jporta2 Agreed, thanks Jason. Board could have invalidated it based on language you cite. But they may have missed chance.

@ckshowalter And that's probably what happens - not enough trustees support the challenge & a court dismisses attempt by dissident trustees.

Other possible hurdle for #PSU suing #NCAA: does NCAA membership include waiver of recourse clause- meaning members waive right to sue NCAA?

@JonDArthur Unlikely to work unless consent decree invalidated. Even though, odds are tough since NCAA does not owe its members due process

@RichAJensen Would need to see board charter/rules etc., but if board chair denied chance for trustees to vote, could be breach of fid duty.
 
1h Michael McCann ‏@McCannSportsLaw
@RalphCindrich My guess: only the board would have standing on grounds that it has final say over legal agreements between university & NCAA

2h Michael McCann ‏@McCannSportsLaw
So long as consent decree is valid, I can't see a court hearing any claim v. #NCAA. Consent decree is a legal settlement; need to undo it.
