The prosecution strikes back: Jerry Sandusky investigators lash out at Attorney General Kathleen Kane's review of Sandusky probe
By Charles Thompson
March 6, 2013

In a report published in a leading legal trade journal this week, several people said to have worked on the Jerry Sandusky child sex scandal strongly disavowed any political overlay to the prosecution of the former Penn State assistant football coach.

The article in The Legal Intelligencer, built on interviews with several anonymous sources, reiterates many of the main points that prosecutors and Gov. Tom Corbett have previously made to explain the pacing of the Sandusky case.

But it represents the first time that anyone on the prosecution side has spoken so bluntly - albeit without being identified on the record - about the operational distance between their work and then-Attorney General Corbett's oversight of the politically explosive probe.

Sandusky lawyer outlines former Penn State coach’s grounds for appealing abuse convictions
March 11, 2013

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Jerry Sandusky’s “major claims” as he appeals a conviction for child sexual abuse include the many years that went by before victims notified authorities, according to a pair of defense filings Monday.

Sandusky attorney Norris Gelman listed the failure to report — specifically, the judge’s refusal to instruct jurors on the issue — as a critical element of the former Penn State assistant coach’s effort to overturn the 45-count conviction.
Gelman also argued that the defense lawyers lacked sufficient time to prepare for the three-week trial last summer.

He revisited arguments were previously rejected by the judge who presided over the trial, Judge John Cleland. The new filings set the stage for formal appeals before Superior Court.

Penn State releases confidential copy of Freeh contract; cost for investigation $8 million
March 12, 2013
UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State on Monday released the confidential paperwork authorizing Louis Freeh’s law firm to undertake the investigation that ended up accusing former leaders of concealing abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky.

The investigation that yielded the Freeh report has cost Penn State slightly more than $8.1 million, according to figures the university updated Monday. The total amount Penn State has paid in responding to the Sandusky scandal stands at more than $41 million, when including the first of five $12 million payments toward the NCAA fine and millions in legal bills, public relations firms and other consultants.

After weeks of back-and-forth court filings and legal responses, attorneys for Penn State and former assistant football coach Mike McQueary will have their day in Centre County court on Monday.

McQueary’s lawyers want an out-of-county judge to overrule Penn State lawyers’ objections to his whistle-blower lawsuit against the university. Penn State is contesting McQueary’s claims and wants the lawsuit thrown out.

Attorneys for Penn State filed yet another legal document Friday in Centre County Court, contending that arguments made in a filing last week by McQueary “fail.”
 ::snipping2::

The sides are due to provide oral arguments in front of Senior Judge Thomas Gavin, of Chester County, at 11 a.m. on Monday in the Centre County Courthouse.

Sandusky charity Second Mile asks to transfer cash
March 16, 2013

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — The Pennsylvania charity for troubled youths started by convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky sought permission Friday to transfer money to a Texas ministry so that mentoring programs can be offered this spring.

The Second Mile petitioned a judge to send $200,000 to Houston-based Arrow Child & Family Ministries, saying a limited cash transfer would allow Arrow to run three Second Mile programs while preserving the ability of the charity to pay damages to Sandusky's victims.

The State College-based charity was financially crippled by the child-sex abuse scandal involving its founder and onetime public face. After a six-month internal review, The Second Mile concluded last May that it could not continue and asked a court for permission to transfer programs and millions of dollars in assets to Arrow.

But the plan stalled amid opposition from victims' attorneys and The Second Mile put it on hold until lawsuits against the charity are resolved.

If Centre County Orphans' Court approves the petition, The Second Mile said it will lay off remaining program staff and retain two part-time employees, an administrator and a bookkeeper, to oversee settlement efforts and the sale of the charity's property.

Mike McQueary's whistleblower case gets early arguments; ruling expected next month
March 18, 2013

Penn State swung for the fences Monday to get a defamation and wrongful termination suit brought by former assistant football coach Mike McQueary dismissed, and it looks like the university's effort will fall short.

In a 25-minute hearing on preliminary objections to McQueary’s claims, presiding Judge Thomas Gavin peppered Penn State’s counsel with questions that ranged in tone from skeptical to incredulous.

A loss here doesn’t mean that Penn State could never prevail over McQueary, who seeks up to $4 million in lost salary and damages to his reputation he claims he suffered at the university's hands in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Penn State trustees' reactions to Joe Paterno firing highlighted in book excerpt
March 18, 2013

From CRISIS TALES: Five Rules for Coping with Crises in Business, Politics, and Life by Lanny J. Davis. Copyright (c) 2013 by Lanny J. Davis. Reprinted by permission of Threshold Editions, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, Inc.

Editor's note: "Crisis Tales," a new book by prominent Washington lawyer and lobbyist Lanny J. Davis, includes an "Afterword" on the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal at Penn State University. Davis was hired by the university administration in the winter of 2011-12 to handle its media relations. While the chapter would have benefited from better fact-checking -- he refers to The Patriot-News as the Patriot Gazette and calls Joe Paterno "Coach Pa" -- it does offer a behind-the-scenes look at the turmoil among the trustees during the height of the scandal.

Penn State trustees testify to Senate committee on board composition
March 19, 2013

HARRISBURG — Penn State trustee James Broadhurst thinks the size of the university’s governing body is OK for now, and he supports a new provision that will provide a way to remove a rebel trustee.

But fellow trustee Anthony Lubrano thinks the opposite. A smaller board means a more engaged board, and the state should take action to reduce the size. Plus, he thinks the remove-the-trustee provision is aimed at him.

The opposing stances were voiced Monday, when Broadhurst and Lubrano testified before the Senate State Government Committee about the governance reforms the trustees are taking up in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Their testimonies underscored the divide that exists on the board over some of the recommendations from former Auditor General Jack Wagner and the ideologies for best practices in a post-Sandusky atmosphere.

Jerry Sandusky interview: Pennsylvania prison system doesn't ordinarily do television, but had no control over Ziegler tapes
March 25, 2013

You can't take recording devices inside a Pennsylvania state prison.
But John Ziegler was completely within his rights to tape his telephone conversations with inmate Jerry Sandusky, as long as he had Sandusky's approval, prison officials said last week.

"We have no control over what the receiver of the (inmate's) phone call does," said Susan Bensinger, a spokesman for the state system.

  Ziegler claims to have scores of taped conversations with Sandusky, recorded in a series of telephone calls with the convicted pedophile, who is housed at State Correctional Institution Greene, in Waynesburg.

They were shared, in part, in an interview on the Today show this morning.
 ::snipping2::
Sandusky, who is being held in administrative custody - a type of solitary confinement - at the prison for his own safety, did put Ziegler on his list of people whom he could place calls to and did give approval to Ziegler to tape the conversations, his attorney said last week.

Inmate calls are typically limited to 15 minutes at a time, Bensinger said, since an inmate like Sandusky would require a corrections officer to accompany him to the telephones. The inmate makes the calls collect, or through a pre-paid phone card.

Taxpayers don't pay for it.

Bensinger said the interview to be broadcast on the Today show this morning will have no impact on security at the western Pennsylvania prison. "We are security-minded 24/ 7," she said.

Jerry Sandusky defends himself in prison interview
March 25, 2013

In a recording played on NBC's "Today" show on Monday, Jerry Sandusky said that Mike McQueary misinterpreted him showering with a young boy in Penn State football team facilities in 2001.

Sandusky told documentary filmmaker John Ziegler that he does not understand how McQueary concluded “that sex was going on” when he witnessed Sandusky showering with a boy.

“That would have been the last thing I would have thought about,” Sandusky said. “I would have thought maybe fooling around or something like that.”
 ::snipping2::
Sandusky also told Ziegler he was not sure whether head coach Joe Paterno, who was fired after Sandusky's November 2011 arrest, would have let him keep coaching if he suspected Sandusky was a pedophile.
 ::snipping2::
Sandusky went on to defend himself against child molestation claims.

“Yeah, I hugged them,” Sandusky said. “Maybe I tested boundaries. Maybe I shouldn't have showered with them. Yeah, I tickled them. I looked at them as being probably younger than even some of them were. But I didn't do any of these horrible acts and abuse these young people. I didn't violate them. I didn't harm them.”

Ziegler said the interviews were conducted during three sessions as part of a documentary he is making called "Framing Paterno."

Judge won’t delay lawsuit vs. Penn State, Second Mile
March 26, 2013

The lawsuit filed by Victim 6 from the Jerry Sandusky case will be allowed to proceed, a federal judge in Philadelphia said Monday.

Judge Anita B. Brody denied Penn State’s and The Second Mile’s request to stay the lawsuit filed by the young man Sandusky forced to shower with him in a campus shower in 1998.

The decision was the first stay Penn State has lost on a civil suit from an abuse claimant.

In her court order, Brody said she ruled against the university and the charity because the young man “has already waited a long time for justice and would be burdened with further delay.”

But Brody denied it without prejudice, saying Penn State and The Second Mile can raise their issues in the request for a stay “if and when they are more imminent.” Brody said that was meant to balance the interests of both sides.

The lawyers for the sides were scheduled for a hearing Tuesday in Philadelphia, but last week, the judge canceled it.

Sen. Corman finds new fault with NCAA over $60 million fine
March 30, 2013


State Sen. Jake Corman has reworked his lawsuit against the NCAA over its $60 million fine against Penn State, and he has a high-ranking state official joining his efforts.

Now, the senator says in an updated version of his lawsuit this week that the NCAA is violating a new state law he got passed, which says any fines more than $10 million against a university have to be put into an endowment overseen by the state’s treasury. The lawsuit demands that the NCAA put $12 million Penn State set aside for its first payment in an endowment.

Corman’s original lawsuit sought to block the NCAA from spending the fine money outside the state. The changes to the lawsuit were made this week.

In a show of support, state Treasurer Rob McCord joined the lawsuit this week.

Jerry Sandusky case: Second investigator named to assist with review of alleged grand jury leaks
Posted April 5, 2013, Updated April 6, 2013

A judge assigned to supervise statewide grand juries has named a second special prosecutor to examine alleged leaks and other problems in the operations of two statewide and one Dauphin County grand jury.
In an order released today, Judge Barry Feudale named Kenneth Brown, a former senior deputy attorney general who recently joined the state's Office of Inspector General, to assist James Reeder with the review.

Brown had prosecuted a number of the capitol corruption cases in recent years before leaving with the end of the Linda Kelly administration. Reeder, also a former deputy attorney general, is an assistant district attorney in Lancaster County.

Feudale has charged the duo with looking for "past, present and future violations of secrecy" relevant to statewide grand juries empaneled in 2009 and 2011 that investigated, among other things, the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal and patterns of corruption at the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

The special prosecutors will also look back at the leaks from a Dauphin County grand jury that investigated perjury allegations against a businessman seeking a license for one of Pennsylvania's new casinos.

Analysts who spoke with PennLive about Feudale's original appointment of Reeder say they believe this investigation will be more focused on the broader issue of grand jury leaks than the actual criminal cases that came out of the panels - most of which are still pending.
