Education Department told to hand over hundreds of Sandusky-related emails
August 14, 2014

A former Penn State trustee candidate who’s been campaigning for transparency from the university and pushing for board members’ and state officials’ emails has scored a victory.

The state Office of Open Records issued a decision Wednesday that the Department of Education should hand over hundreds of emails requested by Ryan Bagwell, the former board candidate who requested the documents through a Right to Know request.

Bagwell, who runs the Penn State Sunshine Fund, wants emails sent to Ron Tomalis, former state secretary of education, from Gov. Tom Corbett, his top aides and key Penn State officials.

The department found 644 pages, but wanted Bagwell to pay $338 in fees before it would even respond to his request and said it reserved the right to determine that some of the documents are protected and shouldn’t be handed over.

In its decision, the open records office found the Department of Education didn’t follow proper procedures in responding to the request. The state has 30 days to appeal the decision to Commonwealth Court.

Bagwell has been using open records requests in his ongoing bid to reveal information about how the university handled the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal.

Penn State trustees vote to stay course on Sandusky sanctions
August 13, 2014

HARRISBURG — A divided Penn State board voted Wednesday to endorse a potential legal settlement that would keep its $60 million fine over the Jerry Sandusky scandal within Pennsylvania, signaling their support for a deal to end a dispute between state officials and the NCAA over the sanctions.

The trustees voted 19-8 for the resolution over a possible deal to end a Commonwealth Court lawsuit over the use of the money. Penn State was added as a defendant in that case earlier this year.

The resolution states that keeping the money in Pennsylvania “would be a win for the commonwealth, a win for the university and a win for the children of Pennsylvania.”

Much of the debate focused on a statement that the university “remains committed to full compliance with the consent decree,” which included the fine, a multi-year ban on postseason play and a temporary loss of football scholarships. Most of the board's nine alumni members voted to strip that from the resolution, but they were defeated and then also lost the vote on the overall resolution.

The lawsuit in question is one of three pending legal disputes concerning the consent decree reached in the wake of the child sex-abuse scandal involving the former assistant football coach.

A federal lawsuit by the NCAA against Gov. Tom Corbett and others that challenges the legality of a 2013 state law requiring the $60 million remain in Pennsylvania is on hold for a month while the parties negotiate. The Paterno family and others have also filed a lawsuit in county court that attacks the legality of the sanctions, among other things.

Board chairman Keith Masser told the trustees on Wednesday that there is no agreement on the terms of a possible settlement, but the parties have asked for the board's position.

Sandusky Victim Speaks In Sioux Falls
August 14, 2014

SIOUX FALLS, SD - The warning signs were there, but nobody ever thought a beloved football coach and trusted youth mentor was a serial child molester.  One of Jerry Sandusky's victims told a Sioux Falls audience that it was almost a losing battle to get anyone to believe him.
Retired Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach Sandusky is now behind bars.

On Thursday, Aaron Fisher told people at the U.S. Attorney's Violent Crime and Human Trafficking Conference why his name may sound familiar.

"I was known as victim one," Fisher said.

The 20-year-old was not Sandusky's first victim, but he is known as the first teenager to report his abuse.  The report led to Sandusky's investigation and conviction.  Fisher has told his story over and over, but it is still hard to talk about -- even with his biggest support system.

"I know that my mom knows because she read the transcripts.  I know she knows.  Everybody else knows she knows.  I have yet to actually come out and tell her exactly what happened in the basement of that house," Fisher said.

Ex-FBI chief's condition remains mystery after crash
August 27, 2014

BURLINGTON, Vt. — Former FBI Director Louis Freeh remained hospitalized Wednesday, two days after he crashed his SUV in southern Vermont.

Freeh, 64, of Wilmington, Del., was admitted under armed guard to the intensive care unit of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H., after the 12:15 p.m. EDT crash Monday on Vermont 12 in Barnard.

The bureau put the armed protection in place because of Freeh's past work on terrorism while serving as FBI director from 1993 to 2001, the authorities said.

The special protection was established by the FBI in cooperation with New Hampshire State Police.

The Vermont State Police initially said Freeh was seriously injured in the crash. The agency said Wednesday there is no indication Freeh's car was tampered with. The cause of the crash remains under investigation, but the police did say Tuesday there was no evidence that drugs or alcohol were a factor in the wreck.
 
Freeh was southbound on a rural stretch of Vermont 12 in Barnard in a 50-mph zone when he drove his 2010 GMC Yukon off the left side of the road, striking a mailbox and bushes before coming to rest against a tree, the police said. Barnard is about an 80-minute drive southeast of Burlington, Vt.

A former federal judge, Freeh is known for his handling of high-profile FBI cases including the Unabomber and the Centennial Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta in 1996. More recently, he prepared a report highly critical of Penn State University's handling of the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse scandal.
