Sandusky Case: Trial Postponed Until June, Prosecution Asks Judge Not to Honor Request for Dismissal
By Laura Nichols
March 30, 2012

The office of the Attorney General responded to Sandusky's request for all charges against him to be dropped and for the case – that has been postponed to June 5 from May 14 – to be dismissed.

The prosecution also asked the court on Thursday to deny that request, among others.

On March 22, Sandusky's attorney, Joe Amendola, filed an Omnibus Pretrial Motion that said all 52 counts against Sandusky should be dropped and his case dismissed because of insufficient information submitted by the prosecution during the pretrial discovery proceedings.

In a 95-page document, Amendola said that because specific dates and times of alleged abuse by Sandusky were not provided, there is no way to build a proper defense.

The prosecution said in a 21-page document that "[w]e do not believe that it would serve the ends of justice to permit a person to rape and sexually abuse [a] child with impunity simply because the child has failed to record in a daily diary the unfortunate details of [his or her] childhood."

The Commonwealth asksed Judge John Cleland to deny Sandusky's requests to dismiss the case, for Habeas Corpus relief, and asks for a "modest continuance in this case" to be granted.

However, the prosecution says in the document that "it is specifically denied that the alleged unavailability of defendants Curley and Shultz could establish the basis for continuance in this matter."

The prosecution also has asked that the court sequester the jurors, according to the document. Sandusky asked for the same.

Prosecutors in Sandusky Case Detail Alleged Perjury By School Officials
The statements relate to an alleged 2002 child sexual assault by former coach Jerry Sundusky

March 31, 2012

Prosecutors in the Penn State child rape case detailed 15 responses to a grand jury by a former university official and 23 responses by another that authorities allege constitute perjury, according to court documents.

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 by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

In court papers filed Friday, the Pennsylvania attorney general's office provided portions of a transcript of a January 2011 grand jury proceeding in which prosecutors accuse Curley and Schultz of committing perjury during question-and-answer exchanges.


Responding to prosecutors' latest court action, the attorneys for Curley and Schultz issued a joint statement to the media: "We have received the prosecution's filings and look forward to reviewing their responses."
 ::snipping2::
A judge ruled in December that the perjury case against Curley and Schultz will go to trial, following graphic testimony from the prosecution's star witness in the case against Sandusky, who faces more than 50 counts involving sexual acts with 10 boys since 1994.

Curley and Schultz have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.

Sandusky, a longtime defensive coordinator for the Nittany Lions, is currently under house arrest as he awaits trial. He has pleaded not guilty.

The star witness, Mike McQueary, testified that he told university officials that he saw Sandusky possibly sodomizing a boy in 2002, saying that what he saw was "extremely sexual in nature." McQueary was a graduate assistant for the football team at the time of the alleged incident.

But according to the grand jury transcript, Curley said that McQueary never stated that sexual conduct of any kind allegedly occurred between Sandusky and the boy.

Prosecutors say two former Penn State officials lied multiple times
March 30, 2012

(Reuters) - State prosecutors listed a number of instances on Friday in which they said two former Penn State University officials lied to a grand jury about their involvement in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal.

Former Athletic Director Tim Curley and now-retired financial officer Gary Schultz pleaded not guilty in January to charges of perjury and failing to report abuse allegations against Sandusky to police.

Former Penn State defensive football coordinator Sandusky, who has maintained his innocence and is under house arrest, was arrested in November and has been charged with 52 counts of molesting 10 boys over a period of 15 years. His trial is due to begin in June.

The explosive scandal focused national attention on child sex abuse and led to the firing of Penn State's legendary head coach Joe Paterno and university President Graham Spanier. Paterno died in January.

In response to a petition by Curley and Schultz to have the charges against them dropped, the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office provided a list of 15 times in which they said Curley lied to the grand jury, and 18 for Schultz.

Some Centre County court proceedings may relocate to Penn State
April 3, 2012

Centre County court proceedings potentially facing disruption when the trial of former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky starts in June could move -- to Penn State.

The university said today it has been approached by the county about the possibility of relocating some hearings and routine court proceedings unrelated to the sex abuse trial from the county courthouse in Bellefonte to the Lewis Katz law building on Penn State's University Park campus.

Cleland has set a hearing on the competing motions for 9 a.m. Thursday in Bellefonte.

Cleland did announce the start of the trial will be pushed back from May 15 to June 5 to accommodate schedules. Amendola previously had said some of Sandusky’s expert witnesses would not be available in May. But Amendola is still looking for a further delay.

At a Child Abuse Prevention Month breakfast this morning, Jerry Sandusky’s name came up again and again. Advocates hope the sexual abuse allegations against the former Penn State assistant football coach will continue to bring awareness to the problem of child abuse and neglect in Pennsylvania.

STATE COLLEGE, PA. -- In the lobby of the Penn Stater hotel, they stood vigil -- reporters, cameramen, students, alumni, residents and a few tipsy hotel bar patrons. It was Nov. 9, 2011, shortly before 9 p.m., and the throng awaited the decision of the Pennsylvania State University board of trustees. Behind the closed doors of Room 206, the 32 men and women charged with navigating the worst crisis in Penn State's 156-year history were on the verge of a painstaking but seemingly unavoidable verdict.

Near the back of a conference room littered with coffee cups and plates of half-eaten fudge brownies and chocolate-chip cookies, a 79-year-old trustee and philanthropist named Mimi Coppersmith stood up and beseeched her colleagues to reconsider what they were poised to do. "Coach Paterno is revered here in State College," she said.

"We're not going to drink the Kool-Aid," snapped John P. Surma, then the board's vice chairman and the chief executive officer of United States Steel Corp. "This is what we need to do."

From the speaker of a nearby telephone, a distinctive voice chimed in: "Remember the children. Remember that little boy in the shower." The voice belonged to Thomas W. Corbett Jr., the governor of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and a member of the board of trustees. Corbett was participating in his first meeting, but he had the last word.

Surma then asked whether any trustee objected to the firing of coach Joe Paterno.

The question was met with silence.  ::snipping2::

Sandusky appears in court over Penn State sex abuse charges
April 5, 2012

(Reuters) - Former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky appeared on Thursday in a Pennsylvania court where his attorneys and prosecutors discussed defense efforts to have the high-profile child sex abuse case dismissed.
 ::snipping2::
Sandusky, dressed in tan pants and a blue blazer, sat quietly as defense attorney Joe Amendola said he may be resubmitting a motion to have the charges dismissed. The hearing was held at the Center County Court of Common pleas.

Sandusky was accompanied by his wife, Dottie.

Prosecutor Joseph McGettigan said a grand jury investigation was ongoing and that more evidence could be introduced. The prosecution has already given the defense voluminous quantities of evidence, he said.

Judge John Cleland did not make any rulings and said he was unlikely to do so until the middle of next week at the earliest.
Amendola has been trying to get the case dropped, questioning the validity of charges related to three boys.

Sandusky hearing postponed because of ongoing probe
April 5, 2012

CNN) -- Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky briefly appeared in a Pennsylvania courtroom Thursday before the judge adjourned the hearing, saying that court decisions will be postponed because the grand jury investigation is still ongoing.

Pennsylvania Superior Court Judge John Cleland said deliberations Thursday would be "premature," after Sandusky's attorney called for child sex abuse charges to be dropped over a lack of more specific evidence regarding the alleged victims.

Attorney Joe Amendola also withdrew motions accusing police of entering Sandusky's home illegally.


Sandusky, 68, a longtime defensive coordinator for the Nittany Lions, faces more than 52 counts involving sexual acts with 10 boys dating back to 1994. Prosecutors allege he met some of his accusers through a charity he created for underprivileged children.

Sandusky has pleaded not guilty and remains under house arrest until his trial begins June 5.

Ahead of Thursday's hearing, Sandusky's lawyers filed a 95-page motion on March 22 that addresses several issues:

Prosecutor blasts Jerry Sandusky's lawyer after 'pointless' hearing
Judge says it's too soon to decide which sex-abuse charges can go to trial.

By Peter Hall, Of The Morning Call
April 5, 2012

 ::snipping2::
Senior Deputy Attorney General Joseph E. McGettigan III, speaking with reporters, called the hearing pointless and characterized Sandusky's challenges to the strength of the state's case as publicity stunts.

McGettigan noted that Sandusky could have tested the evidence months ago, but gave up his right to a preliminary hearing.

If he'd had the hearing, the longtime Nittany Lions defensive coordinator would have been confronted with the "litany of perversions" he committed, McGettigan said. And Sandusky would have heard his charity for disadvantaged children depicted as a "victim factory," where boys were set up to be sexually abused.

"He elected not to hear that testimony. He will hear it one day, and we will be ready," McGettigan said. "The commonwealth looks forward to the day when the victims of Jerry Sandusky can have their opportunity to confront the person who abused them."

In response, Amendola said Sandusky's decision to waive the preliminary hearing was driven by the prosecutors' threat to increase Sandusky's bail if his accusers had to testify, potentially putting him behind bars until a trial.

Amendola added that Sandusky has a constitutional right to challenge the sufficiency of the state's evidence and to know enough about the allegations to build a strong defense.
 ::snipping2::
Amendola filed papers last month that, taken as a whole, amounted to an effort to have the case dismissed.

He argued that the state's allegations with regard to seven of the alleged victims lacked details — such as the dates and times of the alleged assaults — that Sandusky needs to build a strong defense. With regard to the three other alleged victims, he argued the state's evidence is based on the accounts of single eyewitnesses and is too thin to stand up in court.

In the courtroom Thursday, Judge John M. Cleland said if he dismisses those claims he would do so without prejudice, meaning Sandusky could raise them again later.

Central to the judge's decision not to hold arguments on Sandusky's motions is the fact a grand jury in Harrisburg is still hearing evidence in the case.

Improve oversight of nonprofits
By Nicholas P. Cafardi
April 8, 2012

In the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, the Penn State Board of Trustees is thinking about adding faculty and alumni members to the board. It turns out that in May 2011, almost six months before Mr. Sandusky's arrest, the trustees were given a briefing on the Sandusky matter but took no action. In hindsight, most would agree this was a bad choice, so a board "restructuring" is being considered under public pressure.
 ::snipping2::
Professor John Lachs of Vanderbilt University has written extensively about nonprofit boards and has identified a common problem: "Board meetings are carefully choreographed events, designed by administrations to display their excellence. Many [board members] believe that they occupy honorary positions and consider themselves unqualified or unprepared to ask hard questions of the managers they have hired. As a result, as long as administrators keep serious problems out of the public eye, they retain power ... and enjoy considerable operational leeway."

Many nonprofit board members rarely take the time to meet rank-and-file employees of their organizations or the people those organizations serve. Their interactions often are solely with top management, which may leave them ignorant of what's really going on.

Nonprofit corporations are accountable to the Internal Revenue Service for their tax-exempt status, but the IRS cannot police every tax-exempt organization in the country.

In Pennsylvania, the attorney general has the authority to oversee Pennsylvania charitable organizations, but with a limited budget and multiple other duties (including the prosecution of cases like Mr. Sandusky's), monitoring charities has not historically been a high priority.
 ::snipping2::
A new, more effective policing mechanism is in order. Charitable organizations are subsidized by taxpayers because they are exempt from income and property taxes. Gifts to charities are tax deductible, as well. In exchange for this public support, these organizations owe more accountability to the public.

Are the "thousands of Penn State Graduates" concerned over Joe Paterno's firing or are they concerned there was a pedophile on staff molesting young boys in the showers and building on their own campus?  Just askin'...  Where is the outrage for the victims?  Why aren't they picketing and raising heck over in front of Jerry and Dottie's house?

Child abuse shames and silences victims
Little justice results from allegations

April 8, 2012

 ::snipping2::
“It’s really tough” to get justice on child sexual abuse, said Bill Murray, a Los Angeles community activist who leads the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse.

First of all, “only one in 10 kids ever tell,” said Mr. Murray, 59, who only recently began explaining fully about how, beginning at age 11 in the mid-1960s, he was molested for several years by a camp counselor, and later by priests and leaders at an all-male Catholic school.

“One of the hallmarks of what happens to most of us is we don’t want to remember it. We don’t want to admit it. We don’t want to talk about it. We’re ashamed. We feel guilt. We feel somehow it was our fault,” said Mr. Murray, who once used drugs and alcohol to obliterate the memories of abuse.

Once people realize that, as children, they can’t be blamed for these abuses, they finally can get into recovery and tell their stories for the first time. “But this can take decades. Decades,” said Mr. Murray, who discusses these issues on blogtalkradio.com.

Penn State officials get timeline for perjury case related to Jerry Sandusky
By Sara Ganim, The Patriot-News
April 9, 2012

Dauphin County President JudgeTodd A. Hoover has set a timeline for the perjury case against two former Penn State officials accused of lying to the grand jury investigating child sex abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky.

Former athletic director Tim Curley and former vice president Gary Schultz will be in court for a status conference June 1, but have until July 30 to file pretrial motions.

Prosecutors will have until Aug. 14 to respond, making it likely their trial will not start until fall, at the earliest. Other responses to court documents are due in April, the judge ordered.

Sandusky, who is charged with 52 counts of abuse against 10 different boys, is scheduled for jury selection in Centre County June 5. His case, which took three years for investigators to compile, has moved much faster.

Judge silences lawyers in Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case
By Sara Ganim, The Patriot-News
April 9, 2012

Judge John Cleland, who is presiding over the child sex abuse case against Jerry Sandusky, has issued a gag order.
Attorneys, investigators and witnesses are being told to no longer speak to the press in an effort to tame the high-profile case as jury selection and the June 5 trial approach.

Since his November arrest, Sandusky's case has been a national spectacle, and his attorney Joe Amendola has taken every opportunity to speak. He has also allowed Sandusky to give two public interviews and make statements to the press outside of court hearings.

Judge issues gag order in Sandusky case
By Debra Erdley, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
April 9, 2012

The judge in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse trial this morning barred defense and prosecution attorneys, investigators and their spokesmen from making further public comments about the case.

Visiting Senior Judge John M. Cleland, who is presiding over the case, cited "unprecedented publicity" surrounding the case and the need to conduct a "fair, impartial and orderly trial" among his reasons for issuing the order.

It prohibits defense and prosecution attorneys and investigators from commenting either directly or on background about their opinions of Sandusky's guilt or innocence, the reputation, character, credibility or criminal records or anyone or any organization linked to the case and any opinions involving the "legal or factual merits" of the case.
