Former Penn State coach accused of abuse/Others with coverup

Jerry Sandusky, a former defensive coordinator for the Penn State football team once viewed as a favorite to succeed Joe Paterno as head coach, has been charged with sexually abusing eight boys, and the university’s athletic director and another university official were charged with perjury and failure to report after an investigation into the allegations.

Sandusky, 67, who had worked with at-risk children through his Second Mile foundation, was arraigned and released on $100,000 bail on Saturday after being charged with, among other offenses, seven counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, eight counts of corruption of minors, eight counts of endangering the welfare of a child and seven counts of indecent assault.

  1. Let me get this straight. Joe Paterno heard from a witness that Sandusky was raping a boy. He turned the info over to his superiors who were subsequently indicted for "not reporting". And the public is outraged and demands the hero-coach Paterno's resignation.

    Apparently, Paterno is being held accountable by the public, for not doing more to stop his friend the pedophile.

    Might we transfer this train of thought to our community?
