An integral part of Penn State’s football success for the last decade, a former defensive coach who was accused on Saturday of molesting eight boys, while two school administrators were charged with their failure to inform police when a witness told them he saw a boy being sexually assaulted in the shower.
Former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, 67, was arrested, but released on $100,000 bail after being arraigned on 40 criminal counts. According to Police, she called Sandusky “a sexual predator who used his position within the university and community to repeatedly prey on young boys.”
If the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office is to be taken at its word — if the sad, sickening details of alleged sexual abuse of young boys by Jerry Sandusky are true — a once-immaculate program thought of as beyond reproach is now close to beyond redemption. Paterno wasn’t charged, but if Sandusky is guilty, Paterno would be guilty — just as Penn State’s athletic director and a university vice president, who were charged with perjury and failure to report suspected child abuse on Saturday, would be guilty.
They would all parties bent on a crime worse than any committed pay-play return to Miami State of Ohio EMS or not guilty to protect a program before the child can be.
You can not read the 23-page report and grand jury reaching a different result, Penn State football and his impeccable reputation, apparently reversed the alleged sexual assault of a young boy – maybe up to eight boys – more than 15 years of Sandusky.
