Attorney general rebuts claim by attorney that Penn State grand jury report was flawed (http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/11316/1189464-455.stm)
Saturday, November 12, 2011
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Nils Frederiksen, spokesman for state Attorney General Linda Kelly, said, "It's clear from the findings of the grand jury that Mr. Courtney had direct dealings with both Penn State and The Second Mile and he had knowledge and was aware of the 1998 incident.

"The grand jury findings are based on evidence and testimony," he said. "There's no dispute he had interaction with both [Penn State and The Second Mile]. If he wants to engage in semantics, so be it."

Sandusky Had Access to Vulnerable Kids Via Charity (http://abcnews.go.com/Sports/wireStory/coach-accused-charity-assault-boys-14939549#.Tr7RGHJuXF8)

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. November 12, 2011 (AP)

The very success of The Second Mile meant there was plenty of money for Sandusky to lavish on boys. A review of tax forms filed by The Second Mile shows that out of almost $3.3 million in revenue during the 2008-09 year, salaries, wages, and payments to directors totaled almost $1.4 million, along with $190,000 for "camp food" and $288,000 for "other expenses."

The Second Mile said in a statement that it has done "everything in our power to cooperate with law-enforcement officials." But Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly said that during the grand jury investigation there was an "uncooperative atmosphere" from some officials at Penn State and The Second Mile. And Gov. Tom Corbett said he believes there will be an investigation into what Second Mile officials knew.BBM

Scandal may include Keystone Central (http://www.sungazette.com/page/content.detail/id/570961/Scandal-may-include-Keystone-Central.html?nav=5011)

Williamsport Sun-Gazette
November 12, 2011

Did Keystone Central School District officials fail in their response to a student who complained in 2009 that he was sexually abused by ex-Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky?

Was the mother's report of her son's alleged assault at Central Mountain High School discouraged and delayed by school officials, who became involved only after the victim and his mother contacted Clinton County Children and Youth Services?

The judge who ordered former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky be freed on $100,000 unsecured bail on charges he sexually abused eight boys reportedly volunteered for his charity.

District Judge Leslie Dutchcot, who handled Sandusky's preliminary arraignment, gave his Second Mile charity between $500 and $1,000 and worked as a volunteer for the group.

Close to 10 additional suspected victims have come forward to the authorities since the arrest of the former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky on Nov. 5 on 40 counts of sexually abusing young boys, according to people close to the investigation. The police are working to confirm the new allegations.

In fact, one of the toughest allegations...what [Mike] McQueary said he saw, we have information that that child said that never happened," Amendola said.

Sandusky said McQueary's claims are false.

"We were showering and horsing around and he [the boy] actually turned all the showers on and was actually sliding across the floor and we were, as I recall, possibly like snapping a towel," Sandusky said.

The Patriot-News
November 15, 2011

The Patriot-News has learned that, in 2008, Second Mile executive Katherine Genovese told a person in authority that the charity already had concerns about Sandusky and certain boys.

That conversation is said to have occurred in late 2008 around the same time that a Clinton County boy came forward with detailed allegations of sexual abuse.

$3 million state grant for Second Mile put on hold

The state has put a freeze on the $3 million grant The Second Mile was slated to get for its new learning center, the future of which seems uncertain.

But, a little more than a week after Sandusky was charged with sexual abuse of minors, the county no longer wants to be part of the project.

The county, which would have acted as a conduit of the funds, notified The Second Mile on Monday that it does not want to be involved in the project.

Sandusky camp attendee Troy Craig speaks about how Sandusky made him uncomfortable.

Cooper: Troy you attended Sandusky's Second Mile camp from age 11 to 14. When you were alone with him riding in cars, was there ever any incident where he did something?

Troy Craig: Anytime riding in a vehicle with him. I can remember clearly the first time that I got into the car, in the passenger seat, we were alone in the car, I mean I'm there with him for two seconds before the doors closed and his hand is on my left thigh and it stays there, and stays there the entire car ride, and from my place to campus is about 25 to 30 minutes.

Anderson: Did he say anything about the hand?

Troy Craig: No, he wouldn't draw attention to the hand, he would treat it as if it wasn't there. We would have a conversation about how I was doing in school, what could I expect to see later that afternoon, wherever we were going.
"Anderson" will be airing a special episode Tuesday, November 15, 2011, "State of Shame: The Penn State Scandal." Anderson, whose audience will consist of 120 Penn State students, will speak with former members of the Penn State community, who say they considered Joe Paterno and Jerry Sandusky as family.

In the email obtained by The Morning Call, McQueary wrote that he "did have discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police" following the alleged incident between Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant coach, and a boy. McQueary also wrote that he "is getting hammered for handling this the right way or what I thought at the time was right."

"I had to make tough impacting quick decisions," McQueary wrote.

In the email obtained by The Morning Call, dated Nov. 8, McQueary said "I did stop it, not physically, but made sure it was stopped when I left that locker room."

"No one can imagine my thoughts or wants to be in my shoes for those 30-45 seconds," McQueary wrote. "Trust me."

Documents released by a Philadelphia-area representative show The Second Mile, Jerry Sandusky's former charity, raised money for the judge who freed him on unsecured bail.

In campaign filings released by Vereb, documents show Robert Poole, the chairman of The Second Mile, held a fundraiser for Leslie Duchtot on Oct. 9, 2007 as she was running for office.
At the time, Sandusky was still with the charity as its founder.

Arizona man says Penn State officials ignored his report of abuse by a former professor (http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2011/11/arizona_man_says_penn_state_of.html)
(http://connect.pennlive.com/user/sganim/index.html) SARA GANIM, The Patriot-News

Now, one alleged victim of child sex abuse is speaking publicly about what he calls a culture of secrecy at Penn State.

When he first heard the allegations in the 40-count indictment of Sandusky (http://search.pennlive.com/jerry+sandusky), “I was enraged, very upset,” Paul McLaughlin said. The 45-year-old Arizona man said he was abused by a former Penn State professor and then ignored by university officials.

McLaughlin went to the dean of education, David Monk, and to then-president Spanier in early 2002. Both men, he said, brushed him off.

“I have a tape where [Neisworth] admits the things he’d done,” McLaughlin said. “[Spanier] treated it like an extortion attempt. I told him my concern was solely to get him away from children.”

Andreozzi said his client, now in his 20s, met Sandusky through Sandusky’s charity, the Second Mile. He said he had been around Sandusky for several years and was assaulted multiple times. Andreozzi has also advised other alleged victims in the case and said he was meeting with another potential victim this week.

Andreozzi said he talked with his client after he had listened to Sandusky’s televised telephone interview. “He was absolutely more ready to follow through with this afterward,” Andreozzi said. “He wants him to know he fully intends to testify he was severely sexually assaulted by Mr. Sandusky.”

The Patriot-News

Penn State assistant football coach Mike McQueary never mentioned that he talked to police in 2002 after witnessing an alleged sexual assault by Jerry Sandusky of a young boy, according to a hand-written statement McQueary gave to police during the recent grand jury investigation.

The Patriot-News has viewed a copy of the statement and verified it through a source close to the investigation.

He does not mention stopping the assault, and does not mention talking to any police officers in the following days, the statement says. bbm

The finding by State College, Pa., psychologist Dr. Alycia A. Chambers, the therapist for one of Sandusky’s alleged victims, was contained in the internal Penn State files of a 1998 police investigation of the former coach for showering and bear hugging her client and another young boy in the school’s athletic locker room.
...After meeting with her client in her office and talking to his mother, Chambers described in her written report how Sandusky had coaxed the boy into the shower after a workout, telling him, “All the guys do.” He then moved closer to him, squeezing him tightly from behind while they were both naked. The boy also told Chambers how, during their workout, Sandusky had kissed him on the forehead and told him, ‘I love you.” He also invited the boy back to his house to “sit on his lap” and go “online” on his “cool computer,” the boy’s mother told Chambers, recounting her conversation with her son the previous night.

3-29-2012: Judge Delays Sandusky Penn State Trial Till June (http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/29/us-crime-sandusky-idUSBRE82S1C520120329)
In an online filing, Judge John Cleland ordered the trial's start in the Centre County Court of Common Pleas moved back to June 5 from May 15.
A court spokeswoman had no details about the logistical issues. Joe Amendola, Sandusky's attorney, was not immediately available to comment, and a spokesman for the attorney general had no comment.
Amendola asked last week that the charges against Sandusky be dismissed. He specifically raised questions about the validity of charges tied to three of the boys. Amendola's motions in the case are still scheduled to be heard on April 5, Cleland's order said. Prosecutors filed their response on Thursday.

3-30-2012: Attorney General Lists 33 instances of possible perjury (http://www.centredaily.com/2012/03/30/3146296/ag-lists-alleged-perjury-by-curley.html)
Prosecutors today filed a document listing 33 statements made by two Penn State administrators to support the perjury charges against the men, accused of lying to a grand jury investigating child sex abuse allegations against a former assistant football coach.
A second document defended the case and said a judge should not dismiss the charges.
The statements laid out by the state Attorney General's Office are from January 2011, when Athletic Director Tim Curley and former Vice President Gary Schultz appeared before a secret grand jury investigating Jerry Sandusky....
Many of the statements downplay the seriousness of a report Curley and Schultz fielded from graduate assistant Mike McQueary, who said he saw Sandusky in the football team shower with a boy a decade ago.

3-31-2012: Prosecutors Say Officials Lied Multiple Times (http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/31/us-pennstate-sandusky-idUSBRE82U03K20120331)
In response to a petition by Curley and Schultz to have the charges against them dropped, the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office provided a list of 15 times in which they said Curley lied to the grand jury, and 18 for Schultz.
For example, prosecutors said that when an attorney asked if then-graduate assistant Mike McQueary "did not specifically tell you there was anal intercourse occurring between Jerry Sandusky and this child," Curley lied when he responded with, "Absolutely not, that he did not tell me that."
When Schultz was asked if McQueary had related what he saw when Sandusky and a boy were allegedly showering together on campus, the former head of campus security responded: "No. My recollection was McQueary and Joe (Paterno) both only described what was observed in a very general way. There was no details."

In a response to the defendant's request for a Bill of Particulars on Friday in Dauphin County, the Attorney General's office, prosecution for the case, submitted its response with "Exhibit A" – Tim Curley's testimony to the Grand Jury, and Exhibit B – Gary Schultz's testimony to the Grand Jury, both dated Jan. 12, 2011.
The prosecution said that the defendant "attempts to take advantage of the death of a Commonwealth witness, Joseph V. Paterno," in reference to Curley's request that former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno's testimony be thrown out.
According to the document, the prosecution said the statements support the perjury charges against the men because of their answers before the Grand Jury regarding what then-graduate assistant Mike McQueary told Curley and Schultz he saw in the locker room involving Jerry Sandusky and an unidentified boy, known only as Victim 2.

Lengthy article about the role of Governor Corbett in the firing of Joe Paterno
...on Wednesday morning, Nov., 9, Paterno announced that he intended to retire at season's end, saying, "This is a tragedy. It is one of the great sorrows of my life. With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more." He also said that the trustees had more important things to attend to than worrying about his future.
Many of the trustees, particularly Corbett, several trustees said, reacted with fury at what they saw as Paterno's act of defiance. One trustee equated the coach's statement about retiring at season's end and the board's priorities as an act of "insubordination."
"We couldn't have him on the sidelines," Clemens says, "acting like nothing happened."
"He kicked sand in our faces," says Edward P. Junker, an emeritus board member and the retired vice chairman of PNC Bank Corp. "After he made that statement, it certainly sealed the deal as far as the trustees were concerned."


On the Saturday morning of the Nov. 12 Nebraska game -- the first Penn State game without Paterno on the staff since 1949 -- Bob Capretto, a 65-year-old former Penn State player who admittedly "loves Joe Paterno," had a conversation with Corbett, whom he considers a friend. Capretto says he asked Corbett, "Who told the board to fire Joe and fire Spanier?"
"And the governor said, 'I told them to do it,'" Capretto says. "He was proud of it. I told him, 'You don't realize what you have created here. The damage to Penn State is enormous.'"

Gov. Corbett Criticizes ESPN For Paterno Story (http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2012/04/gov_tom_corbett_criticizes_esp.html)
“ESPN’s report from the grassy knoll merely adds another chapter to the growing list of conspiracy theories surrounding the Sandusky case,” Kevin Harley, a spokesman for the governor, said Wednesday.
“It is a disappointment to read something so long, filled with so many errors, that offers so little by way of new or even real fact.
“The fact remains that Jerry Sandusky is charged with serious crimes of sexually abusing children, and that the evidence against him is overwhelming,” Harley said.

Boardmembers deny governor forced firing of Paterno, Spanier (http://www.centredaily.com/2012/04/05/3152377/trustees-corbett-fire-back.html)
“Corbett never told us what to do,” said Paul Silvis, a trustee who lives in Patton Township. “He voted and agreed with our decision.”
That decision was made and announced the night of Nov. 9 at The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel after days of conference calls and closed-door meetings.
As governor, Corbett is an ex-officio trustee, and he participated in the Nov. 9 meeting by conference call. He has said he told the board that they should “remember the children.”
A spokesman for the Paterno family said the Paternos are reviewing the report and are “surprised and concerned.”

Senior Judge John Cleland didn't rule on anything today. He said his ruling likely will come next week because of other unrelated court matters he must attend to.
This morning, Amendola told the judge he's withdrawing motions to suppress evidence taken during a search of Sandusky's home in June 2011. Amendola acknowledged that a search warrant was obtained legally.

USA Today: Witness who spurred Sandusky probe could testify Tuesday

The witness, designated in a Pennsylvania grand jury report as "Victim 1," has alleged that Sandusky abused him during a period of four years, starting when the witness was 11 years old.

When the boy's mother became suspicious of Sandusky's alleged behavior, prosecutors have said that she took her son — despite concerns of school officials supportive of Sandusky — to state youth authorities in 2008, prompting the criminal investigation that ultimately resulted in 52 charges against the coach, involving 10 alleged victims during a 15-year period.

The witness's expected appearance follows the detailed testimony Monday of another alleged victim who told jurors that he was forced into about 50 sexual encounters by Sandusky during the course of five years, beginning when he was about 12 years old.

"Standing a few feet away from Jerry Sandusky, as he laughed and reminisced with friends in the front row of the courtroom, made me want to take a shower. Just not in the Penn State locker room

That was the gateway to horror where innocence was devoured by evil, over and over and over again, without a word being said. Just rhythmic smacking and slapping noises, silent screams, gutted psyches.


It's hard to believe that a monster like Jerry Sandusky was harbored by Happy Valley for so long. It was an open joke in Penn State football circles that you shouldn't drop your soap in the shower when Jerry was around.

Only the boys in the shower weren't laughing."

07-16-2012, 10:15 AM
(CNN) -- Vicky Triponey knows all too well the power Penn State's late football coach, Joe Paterno, held for more than half a century over the insular slice of central Pennsylvania that calls itself Happy Valley.

She experienced firsthand the clubby, jock-snapping culture, the sense of entitlement, the cloistered existence. It's what drove her five years ago from her job as the vice president who oversaw student discipline.

She was told she was too aggressive, too confrontational, that she wasn't fitting in with "the Penn State way."

She clashed often with Paterno over who should discipline football players when they got into trouble. The conflict with such an iconic figure made her very unpopular around campus. For a while, it cost Triponey her peace of mind and her good name. It almost ended her 30-year academic career.

Another person might have felt vindicated, smug or self-righteous when former FBI Director Louis Freeh delivered the scathing report on his eight-month investigation of the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal. But Triponey sensed only a deep sadness.

Paterno Family launching it's own investigation:


07-16-2012, 02:50 PM
Sources close to the Jerry Sandusky case say that three men have come forward and told police that they were abused in the 1970s or 1980s by the convicted pedophile.

They are the first men to allege abuse before the 1990s, and if found to be credible, would directly attack the 68-year-old's defense argument that a person doesn't become pedophile in his or her 50s.

In the early 1970s, when one of the men says he was abused, Jerry Sandusky would have been in his late 20s.
