Penn State alumni demand trustees step down

Quote
"It grieves me very much when I hear people say 'the Penn State scandal.' This is not Penn State," Erickson said to applause. "This is the Sandusky scandal," he said, referring to former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who's accused of molesting boys, some on campus.

Once the first Penn State employee decided to ignore, cover up, forget what was going on it d@mn well did become a Penn State scandal.

Tom Bradley not returning to Penn State
January 13, 2012

Former Penn State interim coach and defensive coordinator Tom Bradley will not be part of new coach Bill O'Brien's staff, Bradley told ESPN's John Barr on Thursday.

Bradley took over as interim coach when Joe Paterno was fired in the aftermath of child sex abuse allegations against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

On Friday, Bradley posted on his Twitter account that he finished packing up his office late Thursday night, and that he "walked out the doors proud with a lot of great memories and friends, and a better man."

Bradley was still part of the staff when O'Brien, the offensive coordinator of the New England Patriots, was hired Jan. 7 to replace Paterno. But it was widely expected that Bradley would not remain under O'Brien.

Bradley said he never interviewed to be part of O'Brien's staff and will pursue other options

Penn State Alumni Express Concern Over Paterno
By Mary Claire Dale
January 13, 2012

Penn State University's president told alumni that the school's crisis can be blamed on one person: former football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. But many alumni are still grieving over the firing of longtime football coach Joe Paterno.

In a sometimes heated 90-minute exchange Thursday night at a hotel near Philadelphia, university president Rodney Erickson laid the blame for the school's crisis on Sandusky.

"It grieves me very much when I hear people say 'the Penn State scandal.' This is not Penn State. This is 'the Sandusky scandal,'" he said. "We're not going to let what one individual did destroy the reputation of this university."

The 650 people attending the second of three alumni sessions, however, didn't receive his remarks well.
 ::snipping2::
Erickson will be in New York on Friday for the final alumni town hall event aimed at repairing the school's image following the child molestation charges filed against Sandusky, a retired defensive coordinator. He may not have an easy time of it if his previous stops in Pittsburgh and suburban Philadelphia are any indication.

Jerry Sandusky case: Judge sets deadline for pre-trial motions
By Cindy Boren
January 11, 2012

Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State coach who has been charged with over 50 counts of child sexual abuse spanning 15 years, waived a formal arraignment that had been scheduled today in a Centre County (Pa.) courthouse.

Sandusky not appear in court. In today’s proceeding, the presiding judge set a series of deadlines by which attorneys must file their pre-trial motions. Informal discovery, in which prosecutors must turn over evidence to the defense, must be completed by Jan. 16, the Harrisburg Patriot-News reported.
 ::snipping2::
Other key dates:

•Feb. 1 is the deadline by which a request — from either side — for a change of venue must filed. This is also the date by which either side must file a request to bring in jurors from another county.

•March 1 is the date by which any other pre-trial requests must be filed.

•On April 5, the judge will hear arguments about pre-trial issues.

Sandusky is next expected to appear in court March 22 for a pre-trial conference. At that time it should be clear whether the parties are ready to set a trial date.

Sandusky-founded charity to sell 60-acre Pa. site
By MARK SCOLFORO, Associated Press
January 13, 2012

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A charity established by a former Penn State assistant football coach charged with molesting boys said Friday it was putting up for sale a 60-plus-acre property where it had been building an educational center.

The Second Mile said funding had stopped for its Center for Excellence after founder Jerry Sandusky was charged in November with sexually abusing several boys, some of them on Penn State's campus. Construction began at the central Pennsylvania site last year, but the project was canceled two months ago.

The nonprofit said it was evaluating its options for the future and was trying to preserve programs, calling the Bellefonte property sale a key step in reaching that objective.

Former Penn State officials plead not guilty in sex scandal
January 13, 2012

(CNN) -- Two former Penn State university officials pleaded not guilty Friday to their alleged roles in a child sex abuse scandal involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Tim Curley, Penn State's former athletic director, and Gary Schultz, a former university vice president who oversaw campus police, have been charged with perjury and failing to report an alleged 2002 sexual assault of a child.

They both entered pleas of not guilty, waiving a court appearance scheduled for next week, according to a spokeswoman for their lawyers.
 ::snipping2::
Neither man reported what he'd been told to local or campus police.

A grand jury investigation "found that portions of the testimony provided by Curley and Schultz were not credible," according to a summary of the grand jury report.

Curley, 57, is now on leave, and Schultz, 62, retired in the wake of the allegations. Days after the grand jury presentment came to light, Penn State trustees ousted President Graham Spanier and Paterno amid criticism that they could and should have done more.

I'm having a hard time comprehending this line of thinking.  After all, Joe Paterno had said he would retire at the end of the season.  So the
Board of Trustees fired him near the end of the season to get rid of him, even though he was already going?  It's not making sense to me.  Is this another case of football blinders on?  Or had Joe Paterno gotten so powerful this is what the Board thought they needed to do? Was it a way not only to get JoePa out, but also his son?   I understand it was a unanimous vote.  I believe it will get a lot more interesting with Jerry Sandusky's trial coming up.  JMHO

Paterno to speak in Wash. Post interview
By Mark Shade
January 14, 2012

(Reuters) - Joe Paterno, the iconic head of Penn State University's football program for 46 years fired after his long-time assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was charged with child sex abuse, will speak publicly for the first time Saturday since his dismissal.

Paterno, who was admitted to a hospital in State College on Friday because of complications from cancer treatments, was interviewed by Washington Post sports columnist Sally Jenkins at his home on Thursday, according to the Post's website.

The interview, in which the paper said Paterno speaks about the scandal, Sandusky, Penn State and his legacy, is set to appear on the Post's website at 4 p.m. eastern.
 ::snipping2::
Paterno was admitted to a State College hospital on Friday for observation due to minor complications resulting from his treatment for lung cancer, which was diagnosed two months ago. A family spokesman said Saturday morning there was no change to his condition from the previous night.

Report: Sandusky made uninvited visit
January 12, 2012

Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky watched a game from the university president's Beaver Stadium box just one week before his arrest on charges of child sex abuse, but was not issued an invitation, the Harrisburg Patriot-News reported Thursday.
The report confirms Wednesday's statements by former Penn State linebacker Brandon Short, who told ESPN's "Outside the Lines" that Sandusky watched the Oct. 29 game against Illinois in then-president Graham Spanier's box with board of trustee members.
Current president Rodney Erickson said earlier this week that trustees were briefed on the grand jury investigation of Sandusky by Spanier in May or July of last year. The first media reports about the molestation probe surfaced March 31.
 ::snipping2::
Athletic director Tim Curley, who has since left the post in the face of perjury charges in the Sandusky case, did not want to provide Sandusky with tickets to the game, but relented after pleas from Sandusky's wife, the report stated.

Sandusky was arrested Nov. 5, prompting Spanier's resignation and Paterno's firing a few days later. Curley was also arrested for perjury along with former university VP Gary Schultz, though both have maintained their innocence.

Penn State official Tim Curley has lung cancer, his wife and attorney confirm
By Sara Ganim, The Patriot-News

Tim Curley, who has stepped down as Penn State’s athletic director while he fights charges of perjury and failure to report a crime related to the Jerry Sandusky scandal, is now fighting another battle.
Cancer that caused doctors to remove part of one lung in 2010 is being monitored closely by doctors, his wife and attorney have confirmed.
 ::snipping2::
Sources close to the family said the Curley’s wanted to keep his situation private, because he didn’t want it to appear he was trying to get sympathy as his trial nears.
 ::snipping2::
....his wife said her husband is only being watched, not treated.

“This is a personal and private matter that has affected our family since June 2010,” Melinda Curley said. “... He has not required chemotherapy or radiation, however, doctors continue to monitor his condition. ... We are thankful for all the love and support he has received from family and friends and continue to hope for a full recovery.”.

Joe Paterno’s first interview since the Penn State-Sandusky scandal
January 14, 2012

 ::snipping2::
How Sandusky, 67, allegedly evaded detection by state child services, university administrators, teachers, parents, donors and Paterno himself, remains an open question. “I wish I knew,” Paterno said. “I don’t know the answer to that. It’s hard.” Almost as difficult for Paterno to answer is the question of why, after receiving a report in 2002 that Sandusky had abused a boy in the shower of Penn State’s Lasch football building, and forwarding it to his superiors, he didn’t follow up more aggressively.

“I didn’t know exactly how to handle it and I was afraid to do something that might jeopardize what the university procedure was,” he said. “So I backed away and turned it over to some other people, people I thought would have a little more expertise than I did. It didn’t work out that way.”

Joe Paterno never heard of "rape and a man".   Rhymes with head in the sand imo!!

Joe Paterno tells his side
In first full interview since scandal broke, Penn State's former coach tells The Washington Post he wasn't sure how to handle sexual assault accusations against Jerry Sandusky

January 14, 2012

n his first full interview since the Penn State scandal broke in November, Joe Paterno told The Washington Post he didn't feel equipped to handle the sexual assault allegations leveled against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

In an interview Thursday at his State College home, Paterno said, "I didn't know exactly how to handle it and I was afraid to do something that might jeopardize what the university procedure was. So I backed away and turned it over to some other people, people I thought would have a little more expertise than I did. It didn't work out that way."

In the story, which was posted on washingtonpost.com Saturday afternoon, Paterno also said he didn't know about the 1998 investigation into allegations Sandusky molested a young boy. That investigation resulted in no charges. Sandusky retired from Penn State the following year.


Sandusky was arrested in November and eventually charged with 52 counts of child abuse, accused of molesting 10 young boys over 15 years. One of those testifying against him was Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary, who told a Dauphin County grand jury that when he was a graduate assistant in 2002, he saw Sandusky naked in the locker room shower with a boy about 10 years old. According to the grand jury report, McQueary told Paterno about the incident the next day. Following procedure, Paterno reported what McQueary told him to Athletic Director Tim Curley.

Paterno told the Post that McQueary hadn't described to him exactly what he now says he witnessed."And to be frank with you, I don't know that it would have done any good, because I never heard of, of, rape and a man," he told the Post's Sally Jenkins. "So I just did what I thought was best. I talked to people that I thought would be, if there was a problem, that would be following up on it."
