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.

New lawsuit filed over alleged abuse by Jerry Sandusky
9-3-14

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- A new accuser has sued Jerry Sandusky, Penn State and a charity the former assistant coach founded, claiming he was sexually abused about six years ago.

The lawsuit claims Sandusky abused the boy during a shopping trip in 2008 or 2009, and after they attended a Penn State game in 2008 against Coastal Carolina University.
 
The trip would have come around the time law enforcement officials began investigating Sandusky in late 2008, based on a complaint involving a student in central Pennsylvania. They charged him in 2011.
 
Southard told the newspaper his client represents a new case. The lawsuit seeks $550,000, along with punitive damages and interest. Penn State previously settled 26 cases for nearly $60 million.
 
The lawsuit describes the boy as a participant in The Second Mile, the charity for at-risk children Sandusky founded, the newspaper reported.
 
Second Mile official David Woodle said the charity would "engage with them and try just to understand what's there and take it through the legal process." He said The Second Mile now exists only as the owner of real estate that is currently for sale.

Alleged victim suing Penn State, Jerry Sandusky told his story to police years ago
September 4, 2014

The plaintiff in the latest civil suit to emerge from the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal had his case vetted by Penn State's mediation team last year.

Bret Southard, the attorney for the 18-year-old plaintiff, confirmed in an interview with PennLive Thursday that he did have conversations with Penn State's mediators about a possible civil settlement.

The fact that they have decided to pursue their suit in Philadelphia County courts is evidence that no settlement agreement was reached.

Penn State has paid out nearly $60 million in damages to some 26 people who said they were sexually abused by Sandusky, the longtime defensive coordinator for legendary head football coach Joe Paterno.

Mediator Michael Rozen has said previously that there were five other claims that were not settled.

Two of those were deemed factually credible - both victims were among the eight to testify at Sandusky's June 2012 criminal trial - but there was no agreement on monetary damages.

They have already led to separate civil cases.

There were three others, meanwhile, in which Rozen said the threshold of documentation needed to convince the university to settle simply hadn't been met.

The new case, filed in Philadelphia last month but first reported in The Centre Daily Times out of State College Wednesday, appears to be in that category.

The victim was contacted by Pennsylvania State Police in April 2012, because his name was among those that had been highlighted by Sandusky on his lists of Second Mile participants.

He was interviewed, but prosecutors chose not to bring additional charges against Sandusky at that time.

The civil case hinges on two specific incidents, both allegedly occurring when the boy was about 12 years old.

A shopping outing in 2008 or 2009, during which the former coach allegedly pulled his car over to the side of a road and forced the plaintiff into oral sex.
A 2008 Penn State home game against Coastal Carolina University. The game was a rout, and the teen said Sandusky left early, took him back to his home, and raped him.
In both instances, the youth said, Sandusky threatened to harm him or his family if he told anyone about the incidents.

Both instances occurred long after other allegations of sexual misconduct by Sandusky were made known to high-ranking Penn State officials, the suit asserts, and those officials were negligent in failing to properly act on them.

Southard, the teen's attorney, said he did not know why prosecutors decided against proceeding with criminal charges in his client's case, though he said the authorities were always "very supportive of, and very kind to my client."

He also declined comment Thursday on the specifics of his prior contacts with Penn State's civil team.
 
Sandusky case prosecutors also declined to comment for this story.

But earlier this year, they did cite credibility problems with an alleged Sandusky victim who - like Southard's client - they interviewed extensively shortly before the former coach's 2012 trial.

The prosecutors were responding at the time to Attorney General Kathleen Kane's assertions that there were allegations of sexual abuse by Sandusky that post-dated the launch of the investigation.

Kane was attempting to make the point that Sandusky could have been arrested earlier in the probe.

In his rebuttal in June, former senior deputy attorney general Frank Fina said that the person who was interviewed had provided a variety of dates, including 2009, in which he said he was sexually abused by Sandusky.

Some of the fact patterns cited then have similarities to the new case.

Fina said that person's story was not deemed credible enough to take to criminal court, where standards of proof are highest. "We weren't able to verify any of those (attacks), and there were profound issues with that individual," Fina said.

In addition to Penn State, Sandusky and his former youth charity, The Second Mile, are named as defendants in the latest case.

NCAA lifts Penn State's postseason ban imposed after Jerry Sandusky scandal
September 8, 2014

The NCAA has lifted the on-the-field sanctions placed on the Penn State football team for the Jerry Sandusky scandal, including immediately eliminating the postseason ban and restoring scholarships.

Penn State was halfway through a four-year postseason ban handed down during the summer of 2012. The NCAA rescinded some of the scholarship sanctions last year.

In a news release Monday, the NCAA says that in addition to the postseason ban being lifted, Penn State will be allowed to have the full complement of football scholarships in 2015.

The school still must pay a $60 million fine, 112 wins under Joe Paterno remain forfeited and the school will remain under monitoring.
