In the video, (at about 0:59) Jerry Sandusky's attorney  says "...even if somehow Jerry comes out of this without being convicted their lives are over."  He doesn't sound very positive about Jerry being found not guilty, is he?

Penn State cuts all licensing ties to Paterno
Decision to sever ties was mutual

December 9, 2011

Penn State will no longer license the name, likeness or image of former coach Joe Paterno.

A school spokeswoman said Friday the university sent notices this week to licensees that Paterno's daughter, Mary Kay Hort, will now handle the licensing program for JVP Properties. Penn State previously assisted with licensing.

Penn State said the decision to sever ties was mutual and referred further questions to Hort.

About half of Pennsylvanians polled support Paterno’s firing amid sex abuse scandal
December 9, 2011

PHILADELPHIA — About half of Pennsylvanians surveyed for a poll released Friday support the firing of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, although many say they still have a favorable opinion of him after the child sex-abuse scandal that erupted last month.

The poll conducted by Connecticut’s Quinnipiac University found 52 percent of registered Pennsylvania voters surveyed supported the decision of the Penn State Board of Trustees to oust the longtime coach, with 43 percent opposing the move.

But 44 percent of those polled still have a favorable opinion of Paterno despite outrage expressed by law enforcement officials who claim he didn’t take strong enough action after a graduate assistant came to him claiming he saw former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy in a shower at the school’s football facilities.

The poll of 1,453 registered voters for the week ending Dec. 5 has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.

Personally (and I'm not by any stretch of the imagination an attorney), I don't think Dottie Sandusky will be charged  with anything unless one of the victims came forward and said she was an actual witness and etc.    The prosecution may want to talk to her.  However, I do believe Mrs. Sandusky is going to be facing civil suits.  JMHO

Could Dottie Sandusky face charges in her husband's child sex scandal
Contributor: Nate Wardle
December 9, 2011

 ::snipping2::
There are now questions about whether Mrs. Sandusky could also face charges. The family lawyer says that is unlikely.

"I think the Attorney General's office would be hard-pressed trying to pursue some sort of criminal action against Dottie in the absence of any direct proof,” stated Attorney Joe Amendola. “That is assuming, which we deny, but even assuming the allegations are true, that she knew anything about those allegations."

Penn State taking Paterno items off store shelves
December 9, 2011

Penn State University has ordered vendors holding licenses for products depicting former football coach Joe Paterno's name or likeness to sell those products within 60 days after which they must be pulled from store shelves.

University officials said today they made a mutual decision with Mr. Paterno's representatives that the university would no longer manage licensing for his image because he is no longer head coach.

Licensees have begun receiving letters from the university stating that the use of Mr. Paterno's use of name, likeness or image is no longer approved through Penn State, effective immediately, and that licensees have 60 days to deplete any merchandise depicting Mr. Paterno's image or name.

Contracts between the university and its licensees state that the university can collect any out-of-license merchandise and destroy it. The contracts do not address the circumstances under which licensees can be compensated for such losses and university officials declined to say whether such vendors will be reimbursed for Joe Paterno merchandise that remains unsold after 60 days.

This article is vague imo. We already knew Raykovitz had resigned and not long after, Genevose resigned, per articles posted in this thread, so that wasn't new news.  However, who is "An expert in nonprofit management..." as mentioned in this article?   

http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/accusers-claim-he-screamed-during-attack-raises-questions-about-ex-penn-state-coachs-wife/2011/12/09/gIQA953HhO_story.html
Expert questions structure of charity linked to Penn State abuse
December 9, 2011

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — A second top executive of The Second Mile appears to be leaving, and an expert is questioning how the charity founded by Jerry Sandusky was structured and run.

Katherine Genevose is the wife of former chief executive Jack Raykovitz and had been the foundation’s executive vice president. She is no longer listed as a staff member on the charity’s website. Her apparent departure was first reported by The Patriot-News.

An expert in nonprofit management says Genovese and Raykovitz had unusual control over the operations of such a large organization, and that the charity’s bylaws also gave Sandusky questionable powers.

 kittymom, maybe Dottie Sandusky just hasn't come to grips yet that the life she once knew as the wife of a popular asst. football coach, with social standing is gone forever.  I don't know how much Dottie knew, or might even have suspected, but I've read that sometimes people just cannot accept something so horrible and they stay in denial.  JMHO

Expert questions makeup of Penn St. case charity
By KEVIN BEGOS and GENARO C. ARMAS, Associated Press
December 9, 2011

 ::snipping2::
Sandusky is set to appear in court on Tuesday to face more than 50 charges that accuse him of sexually abusing 10 boys over the span of 15 years. Investigators also have questioned whether Sandusky used charity funds to "groom" the boys with extensive gifts.

An expert on nonprofit governance said that in retrospect there were some questionable aspects to the basic structure of The Second Mile.

Michael L. Wyland, who advises nonprofits as a partner in the firm Sumption & Wyland, recently analyzed the charity in an essay that appeared online in The Nonprofit Quarterly.

Wyland said he'd never seen bylaws that identify the "founder" as a corporate officer and member of the board's executive committee. The arrangement meant that Jerry Sandusky's duties conflicted with the powers of the board's chairman.


While it's not unusual for a founder to be the public face of an organization, Wyland said that board members have a legal responsibility to the charity, not the founder. Sandusky's extensive powers in the bylaws could have hindered such oversight.

Wyland noted that there's even a term in the nonprofit world for such situations: Founder's Syndrome.

The size of the Second Mile's board is also unusual. There are 36 people on the state board, plus more on regional boards. With that many people, "what tends to happen is the full board is not really able to exercise its responsibility. It's hard to have dialogue," Wyland said.

He also noted that Raykovitz, the CEO who resigned after Sandusky's arrest last month, is married to Genovese, the executive vice president who is no longer listed on the charity's website.

Wyland said that's a management conflict-of-interest, as Raykovitz would normally have been expected to review Genovese's performance and set her compensation. He noted that Raykovitz and Genovese also had formal oversight of contributions, solicitations and financial records.

"The combination of those things makes it very unusual for the CEO and the spouse to have that level of control over income and expenditure," said Wyland, who added that such situations should be avoided.

But Wyland said the tendency to blame Second Mile board members may be excessive.

"There's this temptation to say, they should have known. Well, not always," Wyland added, especially when someone involved with an organization is making extensive efforts to hide the details of their wrongdoing.

He also noted that a district attorney didn't press charges against Sandusky after investigating some complaints, meaning that Raykovitz could have credibly believed that the allegations were unfounded.

The Second Mile has hired Lynne Abraham, who served as the top prosecutor in Philadelphia for nearly two decades, to help it conduct an internal investigation to assess policies and make recommendations regarding its future.

This has come to light because of the news reports about the Penn State sex abuse case.


http://www.chron.com/sports/article/Report-AAU-CEO-accused-of-child-sex-abuse-2393143.php
Report: Ex-AAU leader accused of child sex abuse
December 9, 2011

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Two former basketball players have accused ex-Amateur Athletic Union president Robert "Bobby" Dodd of molesting them as children, according to an ESPN report.

The AAU confirmed late Friday that it is investigating the claims, which reportedly date from the 1980s. One of the players, 43-year-old Ralph West, told ESPN's "Outside the Lines" he was assaulted in Memphis in 1984.

Both West and a second unidentified man said news reports about the Penn State child sex abuse case prompted them to independently confront Dodd in November. The player, who spoke to ESPN on the condition of anonymity, said he called Dodd on Nov. 11 and that Dodd apologized for the alleged abuse. ESPN confirmed an eight-minute call to Dodd by examining telephone records.

Memphis police said in a statement that it had been contacted by the AAU and was looking into the allegations.

"The Memphis Police Department takes allegations of child sexual abuse very seriously," Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong said. "Although this case has its challenges due to the amount of time that has passed, it will be thoroughly examined; and if the investigation reveals the law was violated, the person responsible will be held accountable."

AAU Acting President Louis Stout released a statement Friday saying that the 63-year-old Dodd has colon cancer and will not return to his positions as president and executive director..

Stout also confirmed that the organization is conducting its own probe.

"The AAU has recently been made aware of some serious allegations about President Robert W. 'Bobby' Dodd, dating back several decades," the statement said. "The AAU has opened an independent investigation into these matters and also has contacted local law enforcement in Memphis, where the activities allegedly occurred. We will actively cooperate with any and all authorities to determine the facts and the truth."

An AAU spokeswoman said late Friday the group would have no additional comment.

Both accusers said they never went to police and only recently told their families.

It's really sad, but I wonder how many cases are unreported?  If there's anything good that can come of it, perhaps awareness and some changes in laws to protect children from sexual predators will come about.

Jerry Sandusky placed under house arrest in College Township
December 9, 2011

Jerry Sandusky is back in his College Township home, confined to house arrest by an ankle monitor but out of jail after spending less than 24 hours locked up.

The 67-year-old spent Wednesday night at the Centre County jail after he was unable to post $250,000 bail, the condition imposed after a dozen new child sex abuse charges were filed by the state attorney general’s office based on grand jury testimony from two new alleged victims.
 ::snipping2::
Under the terms of his release, Sandusky is confined to his home, subject to electronic monitoring and forbidden from having any contact with any witnesses or alleged victims in the attorney general’s investigation, a condition already imposed after his first arrest Nov. 5.
 ::snipping2::
The investigation against Sandusky started in late 2008, when a then-15-year-old boy told Clinton County school officials he was being abused by Sandusky, who was a volunteer football coach at his high school.

Jack Peters, the Keystone Central School District board president, said at a meeting Thursday night that the district did a thorough investigation and was “very comfortable” with how the school handled the situation.

He said he couldn’t comment further because the situation related to a minor.

But several concerns have risen about the school’s actions.

Without parental permission, Sandusky was allowed to take the boy out of class, and was caught in an awkward situation — lying with the boy on wrestling mats in a gym — by another coach, according to grand jurors.

In the initial 23-page grand jury presentment, the head football coach and assistant principal, Steve Turchetta, said Sandusky often spent time alone with students who were taken from class.

Turchetta described Sandusky as “clingy” and “needy” and told grand jurors Sandusky’s behavior was “suspicious.”

When asked about the school’s policies about students being removed from class, Peters said, “I’m not involved in the day-to-day operations, but generally we have good policies.”

When the mother of the 15-year-old, referred to as Victim One by the grand jury, expressed concern about that issue in 2008, the school principal called her son to the office and asked him about his relationship with Sandusky.

That conversation started the chain of events that led to one of the biggest scandals in sports history. The scandal has raised questions about whether Penn State officials did all they could have to stop the alleged activity and led to the ousting of head football coach Joe Paterno and President Graham Spanier, charges against two other university officials, and at least nine other alleged Sandusky victims coming forward.

Victim One’s mother told The Patriot-News that principal Karen Probst did not immediately report the allegations to authorities. Instead, the mom said, Probst told her to think about what she wanted to do.

Probst, who was at the meeting Thursday night, did not want to talk to a reporter.
Victim One also was bullied by other students who blamed him for Paterno’s firing, causing the now-18-year-old to change schools midway through his senior year, according to a therapist working with the young man. Psychologist Mike Gillum has said the school did not offer education for other students on dealing with the situation.

The 2011-2012 student handbook for the high school does not address the issue of students leaving class with adults, however, there is an anti-harassment/anti-bullying policy that says it’s a violation of policy to participate in bullying or for any school personnel to ignore it.

Sandusky Circus To Hit Small Town
December 10, 2011

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - The sleepy town of Bellefonte, Pa., will take center stage on Tuesday as the Jerry Sandusky hearing will be a huge media circus, with 7,000 outsiders in town.
Bellfonte (pronounced Bell-Font) has about 5,000 residents as the seat of government in Centre County, Pa., the home of neighboring Penn State.

Its population will swell early this week as a mass of reporters, camera crews and other media types invade the hamlet for Sandusky’s preliminary hearing on Tuesday morning.

As many as 7,000 people are expected to be in town for the hearing, which starts at 8:30 a.m.

There was a lottery in recent weeks to determine who will be allowed in the courtroom as Sandusky may face some of the alleged sexual-abuse victims in the case. Extra reporters will sit in an overflow room in the courthouse to watch a private video feed from the courtroom.

Almost 1,400 people applied for 100 available courtroom seats. Streets in Bellefonte will be closed Monday and Tuesday.

In a similar move in Dauphin County, there is a public lottery for 80 seats at the December 16 hearing for former Penn State administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz in Harrisburg, Pa.

Court proceedings aren’t televised in Pennsylvania, so the hearing won’t be a repeat of nationally broadcast trials that have become a cable news staple.

But much more should be revealed about the state’s case against Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach who is accused of molesting 10 boys he met through the Second Mile, a foundation he set up while working for Penn State as Joe Paterno’s top assistant.
 ::snipping2::
Sandusky’s lawyer, Joe Amendola, has indicated he won’t waive the hearing and wants to speak with his client’s accusers in court.

If the hearing happens and concludes, it will be up to out-of-county judge Robert E. Scott from Westmoreland County to decide if more hearings are held in Bellefonte, or in a different location that could yield a jury pool not that familiar with the case.

As Joe Paterno Retains Tenure, Graham Spanier Gains Emeritus Status; Futures Unclear
December 5, 2011

Like former Penn State President Graham Spanier, former head football Coach Joe Paterno retains his status as a tenured faculty member at the university.

Confirmation came late Friday from Penn State spokeswoman Lisa Powers, who said Paterno has been tenured at Penn State since 1957.

A university employee directory still lists Paterno as a professor of physical education, though the Penn State trustees terminated his 46-year role as head coach effective Nov. 9.

"His possible continued service to the university in that capacity (as a tenured faculty member) has not been determined at this time," Powers wrote in an e-mail message.

An inquiry sent to Paterno's son Scott, who has addressed reporters in recent weeks, was referred Friday to Washington, D.C.-based attorney Wick Sollers. Sollers, representing Joe Paterno, had not responded by Monday evening.

Meanwhile, more information about Spanier's status at Penn State has come to light, too.

New university President Rodney Erickson confirmed Nov. 11 -- two days after Spanier's 16-year presidency ended -- that Spanier remains a tenured faculty member. He is tenured with the faculty titles of university professor and professor of human development and family studies, sociology, demography and family and community medicine.

Powers noted Friday that Spanier also has the title of president emeritus, though the process by which he received that title was not immediately clear. (Spanier was a Penn State faculty member in the 1970s and early '80s, before he returned to the university as president in 1995.)

Another point of interest: Powers reported that Spanier's ongoing sabbatical, announced earlier by the university, "was provided for in his employment contract."

"Whether he will teach next fall has not yet been determined," Powers wrote.
