    Default Huge sexual abuse scandal (against little boys) coming out of Penn State

    From the Associated Press:

    HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and another school administrator were charged Saturday with perjury and failure to report in an investigation into allegations that former football defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually abused eight young men, state prosecutors said.

    The attorney general's office said Sandusky, 67, of State College, was arrested Saturday.

    Curley, 57, and Penn State vice president for finance and business Gary Schultz, 62, both of Boalsburg, were expected to turn themselves in Monday in Harrisburg, according to the attorney general's office. Schultz's position includes oversight of the university's police department.

    Sandusky, closely identified with the school's reputation as a defensive powerhouse and a program that produced top-quality linebackers, retired in 1999.

    Prosecutors said Sandusky was arraigned Saturday and released on $100,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.

    Longtime head coach Joe Paterno, who has more victories than any coach in the history of Division I football, was not charged, authorities said. When Paterno first learned of one report of abuse he immediately reported it to Curley, prosecutors said.

    Sandusky, who worked with at-risk children through his Second Mile organization, was charged with seven counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse; eight counts of corruption of minors, eight counts of endangering the welfare of a child, seven counts of indecent assault and other offenses.

    Attorney General Linda Kelly called Sandusky "a sexual predator who used his position within the university and community to repeatedly prey on young boys."

    The grand jury identified eight young men who were targets of sexual advances or assaults by Sandusky from 1994 to 2009, prosecutors said.

    As stunning as the charges were the names implicated at a university where the football program is known for its consistency as much as its success -- a big change this year was the removal of white trim from players' uniforms.

    "It is also a case about high-ranking university officials who allegedly failed to report the sexual assault of a young boy after the information was brought to their attention, and later made false statements to a grand jury," Kelly said.

    Prosecutors said all of the young men first encountered Sandusky through Second Mile.

    A grand jury report, which recommended charges, said the first to come to light was a boy who met Sandusky when he was 11 or 12. The boy received expensive gifts and trips to sports events from Sandusky, and physical contact began during his overnight stays at Sandusky's home, jurors said. Sandusky was banned from the child's school district in Clinton County in 2009, after his mother reported alleged sexual assault to his high school. That triggered the state investigation that culminated in charges Saturday.

    Kelly said that seven years before that incident, in 2002, a graduate assistant saw Sandusky sexually assault a naked boy, estimated to be about 10 years old, in the locker room of the Lasch Football Building on the Penn State campus. The grad student and his father reported the incident to Paterno, who immediately told Curley, prosecutors said.

    Curley and Schultz met with the graduate assistant about a week and a half later, Kelly said.

    "Despite a powerful eyewitness statement about the sexual assault of a child, this incident was not reported to any law enforcement or child protective agency, as required by Pennsylvania law," Kelly said. "Additionally, there is no indication that anyone from the university ever attempted to learn the identity of the child ... or made any follow-up effort to obtain more information from the person who witnessed the attack."

    Sandusky, once considered a potential successor to Paterno, drew up the defenses for the Nittany Lions' national-title teams in 1982 and 1986.

    The jury said Curley lied when he testified repeatedly that he was never told Sandusky had engaged in sexual misconduct with a child, Kelly said, adding that portions of Schultz's testimony also were not deemed credible by the jury.

    Penn State president Graham Spanier called the allegations against Sandusky "troubling" but said Curley and Schultz had his unconditional support and he predicted they will be exonerated.

    "I have known and worked daily with Tim and Gary for more than 16 years," he said. "I have complete confidence in how they handled the allegations about a former university employee."


    I made the mistake of reading several articles on this this weekend. Some were far too graphic. I cannot understand how a GA could walk in and see Sandusky raping a little boy and walk out of there. The GA (Mike McQueery, now one of the assistant coaches at PSU) went to his dad to see what he should do. They both went to JoePa's house to tell him what MM had seen. The NEXT DAY JoePa notified the higher ups and PSU and no one bothered to contact the police or try to find the victim.

    I've always been a huge JoePa fan but this is disgusting and puts the USC and OSU scandals to shame. I can live with idiot college students trying to make a buck on their trophies. Knowingly allowing a pedophile to roam free and continue to work with children is reprehensible. I hope they all fry for it.

    Disgusting, isn't it? I cannot wrap my head around any of it. What would any of those involved do if their child was in that room? What would any of them do if that was their child and they knew an adult had walked in and then just walked back out while letting the kid fend for himself? What does THAT do to his self esteem?

    Fucking awful - listen Paterno, if you report it and nobody does anything about it, you don't just sit there and wait it out. You call the police, you fire the guy, you get him some help - SOMETHING - this makes Paterno and Penn's higher ups complicit in this entire disgusting scenario. Ugh - what is wrong with people?????

    Instead he gave the guys the keys to the department, an office and continued access to locker rooms, all while Sandusky continued his "work" with troubled boys through his charity.

    They are all going to pay a heavy price for this outrage. Rightly so. This makes me sick.

    So horrible, I gagged when I read through the file. Those poor little boys.
    Baby, by the time you have kids and they're in school, no one will care about you.

    All of them are disgusting. Those who did nothing should be ashamed (not to mention, prosecuted). How could they see this and do nothing??

    Maybe I'm naive but I am really stunned that people knew / witnessed it and did NOTHING. Reporting it to his boss is a FAIL, too and still nothing. It's a crime, you try and stop it while you're dialing 911. The fuck.

    I can't understand that either. I'd be right on that phone and demanding action. Like that guy and his Dad-why not tell the police? Not happening on my watch.

    The people who knew and did nothing are just as guilty as the rapist, IMO. I hope they feel the full weight of consequences for this.

    This kind of story makes me hate people.

    I tried to avoid this story because I just don't want to know that there are people like this who can allow children to be abused.

    On a lighter note, this may be the only way they were EVER going to get JoPa out of there.

    Hope they all fry AND burn in hell.

    THIS!

    What terrifies me about these all-male institutions with so much power and authority is what they hide in order to maintain their domain. Obviously, the GA and his father were too invested to rock the boat of a prize college football dynasty. They couldn't take this to the cops for fear of ruining Penn States rep. No sympathy here, fuckers.

    Everyone, except for the one mother who reported the abuse (and was believed for once), thought these little boys were disposable in exchange for a great football team.

    Fry fuckers! All of them.
    CHILLY FREE!
