Sandusky legacy: New unit to investigate child sex abuse
November 23, 2013

Pennsylvania's Child Predator Section, created after the scandal of the former Penn State coach, follows similar divisions in other states.

HARRISBURG, Pa. — The legacy of Jerry Sandusky's conviction last year on 45 counts of child sex abuse is reaching beyond the prison cell where the former Penn State University assistant football coach is likely to spend the rest of his life.

State authorities have arrested 106 suspected predators involved in the distribution of child pornography and sexual abuse so far this year, more than five times the number from 2012.
 

The numbers, Attorney General Kathleen Kane said, are a reflection of the state's investment in a new investigative unit created in the aftermath of a scandal that continues to reverberate across the state.

"It shouldn't take an embarrassment on the commonwealth to shame us into taking care of our kids," Kane said.

In the past several months, Kane and other state officials have assembled a team of 15 investigators and five attorneys who focus exclusively on child sexual abuse cases.
 
David Peifer, the unit's chief investigator, said a recent review of online activity involving the suspected transmission of child pornography and solicitations for sexual encounters estimated that as many as 2,800 individuals across the state could be involved in such activity.

The estimate was drawn from a review of online activity involving a string of chat rooms and online networks that are known to be involved in the exchange of explicit images and solicitations for sex.

And of the 106 arrests so far this year, Peifer said, at least 25% of the Pennsylvania suspects have allegedly attempted to arrange encounters with children or have engaged in actual abuse.

"Clearly, this is something that needed to be addressed," said Deputy Attorney General Ellen Granahan, who oversees the new unit's operations.
 
In Pennsylvania, Kane repeatedly invokes the Sandusky scandal to help shape the early part of her tenure following her election last year.

Shortly after taking office, she appointed a special counsel to review the initial handling of the Sandusky investigation by then-attorney general Corbett. That review is ongoing. She then moved to establish the child predator unit as a wholly separate entity.

Among the unit's most recent arrests, a 29-year-old Harrisburg suspect is the type of case suspected predator the unit was created to find, Peifer said. Matthew Baratucci was arrested last month as part of a sting operation while allegedly on his way to meet with children who he believed were as young as 5 years old, according to court documents.

A female associate of the suspect prompted the investigation after alerting authorities that Baratucci allegedly asked if she could arrange sexual encounters with young children. "She (the associate) was alarmed by that," Peifer said.

Kane said the unit is now an essential part of the state's law enforcement strategy, adding that she was "a bit shocked" when she first discovered that there was no separate division of the office reviewing crimes involving child sexual abuse.

"We had to do it," she said. "It was a no-brainer."

Victim 9 files lawsuit against Jerry Sandusky, Penn State
November 21, 2013

Penn State University settled 26 cases in summer with men claiming to have been sexually abused by longtime football program icon Jerry Sandusky.

But one that got away during those settlement talks has resulted in a fresh liability suit against the university.

Lawyers for the person identified as Victim 9, one of the witnesses at Sandusky's 2012 criminal trial, announced Thursday that he has filed a civil suit in Philadelphia against the university and its former coach.

Penn State's mediator, Michael Rozen, said this fall that this was one of two cases that all sides agreed were credible. But the university felt the monetary demands from these claimants were outlandish when compared to the 26 cases that were settled.

The new plaintiff's attorneys, asserting that their client suffered among the worst of the injuries inflicted by Sandusky on any boy through a period from 2005 through 2008, disagree.

"Over the last year, we worked closely with Michael Rozen, the mediator selected by Penn State, to try to reach a settlement and spare this young man the ordeal of a trial," a statement from plaintiff attorney Stephen Raynes said.

"Penn State has acknowledged that his claim is by far the most significant and that he is the most severely harmed of the boys abused by Sandusky. Penn State’s refusal to compensate him adequately for what he needs and deserves has forced us to file this lawsuit.

"We trust and believe that a jury will compel Penn State to finally fulfill its responsibilities to this young man,” the statement concluded.

The statement says the suit will assert, based in part on the Freeh Report findings, that Penn State officials should have had ample knowledge that Sandusky was a sexual predator who would go on to abuse more than 20 other boys before 2005.
 
There is evidence to suggest that former Penn State president Graham Spanier and two other senior Penn State managers were aware of a 1998 investigation of Sandusky and were told about another incident in 2001.

After Sandusky's criminal trial, Penn State attempted to negotiate settlements with anyone who had a credible claim against Sandusky. The university eventually entered into talks with 31 alleged victims.

Out of those cases, 26 settled for an aggregate total of  $59.7 million. Three claims were ruled noncredible by Penn State's attorneys, and the cases involving criminal trial witnesses Victim 6 and, now, Victim 9, are in court.

The latest case was filed Thursday in Philadelphia's Court of Common Pleas. Raynes' firm declined to take any additional questions on the new case. A Penn State spokesman had no immediate comment on the suit.

The lawsuit does not preclude out-of-court negotiations from continuing between the parties, but clearly there is a gap that has to be overcome.

Sandusky's pension appeal set for January
November 26, 2013

 
Sandusky, 69, a former Penn State assistant football coach, was convicted in June 2012 of abusing 10 boys over 15 years. The Pennsylvania State Employees' Retirement System later moved to revoke his $59,000 annual pension, noting his conviction triggered the pension's forfeiture, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported.

An attorney for Sandusky argued his client, who retired in 1999, was not a university employee when the toughened forfeiture rules went into effect in 2004.

Sandusky, currently in prison, will appear at the Jan. 7 hearing in Harrisburg through closed-circuit television, a public notice said.

State attorney general continues to review handling of Sandusky case
November 28, 2013

— HARRISBURG -- Ten months later, the state attorney general’s office is still reviewing how prosecutors handled the Jerry Sandusky investigation at Penn State and whether delays allowed the former assistant football coach to continue molesting children.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane, a Democrat, took office in January.  Kane promised in her campaign that she would ferret out the facts surrounding the handling of the Sandusky investigation by her predecessors -- including Republican Gov. Tom Corbett.

Penn State Efforts to Study Child Abuse After Sandusky
December 7, 2013

While riding a taxi to a job interview last year at Pennsylvania State University, the cabbie casually asked Jennie Noll what brought her to State College. When she told him she specialized in child-sexual abuse research, his response was quick:

"You'd better figure this out," he told her, explaining that he had had fewer riders since the Sandusky scandal, and worse could be coming.

"It felt like a traumatized community to me," Noll told The Philadelphia Inquirer last month. "It just shows you the far-reaching consequences of child abuse."

The developmental psychologist now serves in a pivotal role in the university's burgeoning effort to become a national leader in the study and prevention of child abuse, an undertaking resulting from the scandal involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Noll, who started in September as director of research and education for the study and prevention of child abuse, is one of five experts the university has hired, with at least nine more to come.
 
Noll is helping with Penn State's staffing effort, which will span various disciplines, four colleges, and six departments at the flagship state university. The new researchers and faculty will study the far-reaching impact on the victims of child trauma, including premature aging, accelerated rates of disease, and higher rates of risk behaviors such as drug use.

The researchers will explore detection, treatment, prevention, and education.

"Penn State has grieved, but we've pulled together to try to make something positive and large out of this tragedy," said Karen L. Bierman, a psychology professor and director of the Child Study Center.

Others hired include:

Lori D. Frasier, a physician, head of the new division of Child Abuse Pediatrics at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital. She chairs the American Board of Pediatrics' sub-board on child abuse pediatrics.

Idan Shalev, a postdoctoral associate in psychology and neuroscience at Duke University. He will start in January as an assistant professor of biobehavioral health. His work has explored how trauma alters DNA and accelerates aging.

Kent Hymel, a physician at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. He will start at Penn State-Hershey in March. He teaches pediatricians and other practitioners how to spot and diagnose abuse and works with abuse survivors.

Chad Shenk, an assistant professor of human development and family studies. He started this fall. He studies the long-term psychological implications of child abuse and the best treatment to help children and their families.

Seven more searches are underway, two in psychology and others in biobehavioral health; sociology and criminology; human development and family studies; education; and pediatrics. The positions have not attracted tons of applications because the field is small.

Jerry Sandusky’s Lawyer Is Being Sued Over Credit Card Debt
A lot of it.

December 13, 2013

Defending Jerry Sandusky was a risky career move for lawyer Joe Amendola
 
American Express Bank filed a lawsuit in Centre County Court claiming the State College criminal defense attorney owes $25,485 in charges and interest on a credit card….A February statement attached to the lawsuit against Amendola shows the attorney owes a $6,565 minimum payment. Lawyers for American Express claim Amendola refused or failed to make monthly payments and made no payments after the account became delinquent.

Amendola, of course, famously volunteered Sandusky for a nationally-televised interview with Bob Costas. [Tribune]

3 indicted in Jerry Sandusky case back in court Tuesday
December 17, 2013

Almost five months after three former high-ranking Pennsylvania State University officials were ordered to stand trial on charges of covering up evidence that coach Jerry Sandusky was molesting children, they are scheduled to return to a Harrisburg courtroom Tuesday for a hearing that could shape the outcome of the case.

The purpose of the hearing has been shrouded in secrecy - the official court docket doesn't specify the nature of the proceeding, and state prosecutors say only that it pertains to sealed grand jury information.

But Dauphin County President Judge Todd A. Hoover has reserved several days for the hearing, a sign it might be used to address a major unresolved question in the trial of former President Graham B. Spanier, retired Vice President Gary Schultz, and athletic director Tim Curley:

Can Penn State's former top lawyer, Cynthia Baldwin, be a witness for the prosecution?

Baldwin, a former state Supreme Court justice, was general counsel for the school in the early days of the Sandusky investigation, and she accompanied the three administrators when each testified before the grand jury investigating Sandusky.

Later, she became a grand jury witness against them.

Defense lawyers have asked the judge to bar Baldwin, her secret testimony - and anything the defendants told her in confidence - from the trial.

Spanier, Schultz, and Curley are charged with perjury and conspiracy for allegedly failing to act on complaints that Sandusky was assaulting children, and lying to investigators as the Sandusky probe expanded.

Prosecutors have accused them of building a "conspiracy of silence" to shield Sandusky and Penn State from harm while Sandusky continued abusing children. He is serving a prison sentence of 30 to 60 years.

No trial date has been set for the three administrators. Their lawyers contend they are innocent.

They allege Baldwin started out representing Spanier, Schultz, and Curley, then switched sides and gave privileged information to state investigators who were building a case against them.

"I believed that Ms. Baldwin was representing me during and in connection with the grand jury proceedings and that she was acting in my best interests," Spanier said in an affidavit filed in the case.

Baldwin's attorney, Charles De Monaco, has disputed the allegations. He said Baldwin has the "highest integrity."

Prosecutors from the state Attorney General's Office have said Baldwin's testimony should stand because any possible conflicts of interest in her representation arose after she heard the men testify before a grand jury, not while she sat in on their testimony.
 
After Spanier was indicted in November 2012, along with Curley and Spanier, attorneys were stunned to learn of Baldwin's testimony and immediately filed motions asking that it be thrown out.

Elizabeth Ainslie, Spanier's attorney, wrote that Baldwin's cooperation meant Spanier unknowingly spoke to the grand jury while he had no legal representation, and has asked that the charges against him be dismissed.

"The charges brought against Dr. Spanier are based, in large part, on Ms. Baldwin's testimony before the grand jury as to privileged information and attorney work product," she wrote. "At no time did Dr. Spanier waive his attorney-client privilege."

Ainslie has also asked Judge Hoover to order prosecutors to release Baldwin's complete grand jury testimony, as well as information regarding whether Baldwin has been granted immunity from prosecution in exchange for her cooperation. Another court filing this week suggested Schultz may sue Baldwin for malpractice.

Early next year, a former federal prosecutor is expected to release his report, commissioned by Attorney General Kathleen Kane, on how the state handled the long-running investigation.

Tom Corbett signs child-abuse laws inspired by Jerry Sandusky, priest cases
December 18, 2013


Pennsylvania has its first new laws in the state Legislature's wide-ranging response to the Jerry Sandusky and Roman Catholic clergy scandals.

Gov. Tom Corbett made the bills official during a Wednesday signing ceremony at the Pennsylvania Child Resource Center outside Harrisburg.

Lawmakers have approved a half-dozen bills that update nearly 20-year-old state laws on how cases of suspected child abuse are defined, investigated and punished.
 
One of the new laws expands the definition of who investigators can consider a potential perpetrator of child abuse. Another addresses a longstanding complaint of child welfare advocates by lowering the threshold for the kind of injury or pain that is considered child abuse.

Bill O’Brien blasted ‘Paterno people’ before leaving Penn State
By NATE SCOTT    31 minutes ago     @aNateScott
January 2, 2014



Maybe Bill O’Brien leaving Penn State for the Houston Texans wasn’t such a jerk move after all.

In an article published by Pennsylvania’s Patriot News, columnist David Jones described a heated, off-the-record rant that former Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien had with him on the phone in December, a rant in which O’Brien hinted that he was thinking about leaving the school.

The rant came about due to a question about the negative backlash from “Paterno-era loyalists” who were upset about the dismissal (or resignation) of Ron Vanderlinden, an assistant coach who had been on the staff under Joe Paterno. Many fans were upset about Vanderlinden’s exit, as he was one of the few remaining ties to the Joe-Pa era, and wanted answers as to whose decision it was for Vanderlinden to leave.

This set O’Brien off. From the article:

Monsignor Lynn Case Could Impact Jerry Sandusky Scandal
December 29, 2013

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Monsignor William Lynn, the Philadelphia archdiocesan official who has been jailed for more than a year for shuffling predator priests among parishes, had his conviction reversed on Thursday. Legal experts predict the decision will have major implications for the criminal case against three Penn State administrators connected to the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
A superior court judge ruled that Monsignor Lynn should not have been retroactively charged for child endangerment under a 2007 law because his actions took place in the 1990′s.
 
He says the appeals ruling striking Lynn’s conviction could result in dismissal of some of the child endangerment charges against former Penn State president Graham Spanier, former VP Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley- who are charged under the same law. Prosecutors say the trio failed to report a sexual abuse claim against Jerry Sandusky in 2001 through 2008, endangering boys for more than seven years.
“The timeframes that they are being accused of both predate 2007 and are after 2007,” says Funt, “So I think it’ll have a significant impact, but I don’t think it will kill the case “
Funt says the case would continue since Spanier, Schultz and Curley also other changes, including perjury and obstruction of justice.

A  hearing has been moved up for former Penn State President Graham Spanier’s request to pause his pending defamation lawsuit against the author of the Freeh report while the former Penn State president fights criminal charges stemming from the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Lawyers for Spanier and Louis Freeh will now argue their positions before Judge Jonathan Grine at 10 a.m. Tuesday in the Centre County Courthouse.

The hearing was originally set for 1:30 p.m. Thursday, but Spanier’s lawyer, Elizabeth Ainslie, asked that it be rescheduled because she was not available on the first date.

Jerry Sandusky victim asks judge to force Penn State to turn over data
January 10, 2014

Penn State has not turned over any documentation or discovery materials to the lawyers representing a Jerry Sandusky victim, and the lawyers now want a judge to force the university to cooperate in the civil lawsuit.

The lawyers for the young man known as Victim 6 from the Sandusky case filed a motion last week to compel Penn State to provide them with records such as the university police file on the Sandusky investigation in 1998, all the documents that went into the Freeh report and everything that was given to the grand jury investigating Sandusky.

Penn State has objected to turning over the documents, claiming they are protected from disclosure by attorney-client privilege or that the requests are too broad and burdensome.

“PSU’s goal is clear — to prevent John Doe 6 from proceeding in court and most important to begin the healing process,” the man’s lawyer, Jason Penn, wrote in a motion Jan. 2. “Defendants continue, as they have for years, to attempt to obscure the circumstance surrounding John Doe 6’s sexual molestation.”

The young man testified at Sandusky’s trial last summer, saying he was 11 when Sandusky forced him to shower with him after a workout on campus. The young man said it made him feel uncomfortable and that he blocked it from his memory.

The man’s lawyers said their client has suffered “serious physical and psychological harm” and accused Penn State and The Second Mile charity of hiding Sandusky’s behavior.

Penn State has unsuccessfully tried three times to have the cause put on hold; most recently in the fall, when the university asked for a stay on the entire discovery process.

U.S. District Justice Anita Brody, who’s presiding over the case in Philadelphia, said Penn State could ask for a stay on specific discovery requests, though none of those have come across her desk.

The young man’s lawyers want what literally is millions of pieces of documentation.

They asked for the 3.5 million pieces of data and documents that Louis Freeh said were reviewed in his investigation that resulted in his report. They also want the names of all the people Freeh interviewed for his report.

The man’s lawyers have asked for information that’s already been made public in the Freeh report and by the grand jury that investigated conspiracy allegations against three senior university administrators, such as hand-written notes then-vice president Gary Schultz took as he was hearing about the Sandusky incident in May 1998.

The lawyers for the young man also want the police file that resulted from the investigation of that shower incident in 1998.

Penn State has declined to provide it, citing a law that forbids the disclosure of criminal investigative records. But the young man’s lawyers say it’s “nonsensical” that the victim of the crime isn’t allowed to see it.
