    Probably mid-30's. He is 63 now; they were married in the mid-90's, but they had the child first.

    The guy I'm looking looking was 59 and had a 40 year old girlfriend, who worked for him. I guess it's just a matter of personal tastes as to the ick-factor, but it isn't illegal.

    I wouldn't call it unethical if he didn't represent her after the emancipation. You can date someone after she's been a client.

    (Updates with U.S. Attorney's comment in third paragraph.)

    Nov. 15 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. prosecutors joined an investigation tied to allegations that former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky molested eight boys over a 15-year period.

    Federal authorities contacted state Attorney General Linda Kelly and agreed to provide any assistance on the investigation and prosecution that may be needed, U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, said today in a statement.

    "Our general policy and practice are not to comment on the existence or non-existence of a federal investigation," Smith said in the statement. "At the same time we recognize that the public disclosures concerning the state Attorney General's investigation and the recent grand jury report are extremely disturbing because they involve the safety of children.".................................

    Smith's office is also assisting the U.S. Department of Education in its investigation into whether Penn State breached the Clery Act by failing to disclose incidents involving Sandusky. The law requires colleges and universities to report suspected criminal activity to campus police or local law enforcement.

    Smith declined to comment in the statement on specific areas of federal inquiry.

    Statement by United States Attorney for the Middle District of Pennsylvania Peter J. Smith in regards to the Sandusky charges
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    November 14, 2011

    During the past week, this office has been asked questions concerning the federal response in the Middle District of Pennsylvania in regard to the Sandusky case. Our general policy and practice are to not comment on the existence or non-existence of a federal investigation. At the same time we recognize that the public disclosures concerning the State Attorney General’s investigation and the recent grand jury report are extremely disturbing because they involve the safety of children and, therefore, mandate thorough review of the facts and appropriate action by law enforcement at all levels, including federal agencies. Therefore, we can state the following:

    We will support and assist the U.S. Department of Education which has announced that it is conducting an investigation of possible violations of the Cleary Act, the federal law that requires institutions of higher learning to report annually campus-related crimes. I can’t comment about other specific areas of federal inquiry.

    We are in contact with the State Attorney General’s office. We have agreed to provide any assistance to that office in connection with its investigation and prosecution that may be needed and we will coordinate the work of both offices in this important matter as much as possible.

    That sounds like the title of a book or movie. It's so unbelievably sad.

    Smart move, I guess - albeit rather Madoff-ly*.

    :sweep:






    *Or maybe the Madoffs were turning stuff over to neighbors/friends - my memory's kind of fuzzy on that particular scandal.

    "Horsing Around" is one of the most juvenile excuses for bullying. :maddening: And in this case it's really gross and insulting. He still wants us to think he is some kind of camp director whom everyone loves - ugh.

    On Dr. Drew tonight they pointed out that Sandusky admitted to Bob Costas that he showered with the boys, and yet didn't seem to realize that lurking around a locker room shower with children is a serious enough offense.

    The psychiatrist on the show said she believed Sandusky was enough of a narcissist that he believes he can control the message, when really he is giving out too much information.

    He was called before the grand jury by that point and it had been in the paper on March 31. Unless he's completely senile, he knew.

    I think there are laws that will void any transactions he has made to avoid losing assets in a suspected lawsuit.

    It would be difficult at best, but yes, he obviously knew there was an investigation.

    I just searched the name Carl Goeke, which led to Karl Goeke, which led to this:


    (excerpt)

    November 9, 2011 -

    Karl Goeke, the PBIS coach (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support) for Cedar Ridge Elementary School, said there has been a tremendous drop in referrals to the office in recent months at the school. This fall the number fell from 33 in August to 22 in September and 10 in October, he said.

    The school, which opened in 2010, has 500 students, 78 percent of whom are from low-income families. Under the PBIS approach, more teacher training, demonstration of expected behavior to students, rewards for good behavior and pop-in classroom visits from the principal have made the difference, he said.

    And all that, in turn, led to this:


    AMW Capture #883
    Mar 23, 2006
    Goeke's Funnyman Days Are Over

    When Karl Goeke's profile aired on AMW on February 25, 2006, police were hoping someone in the public would recognize the accused serial child molester and call the program with information. The very next day, police got what they wanted -- credible information on Goeke's whereabouts. Now, cops say those tips received by AMW helped put an end to Goeke's days as a funnyman.

    Nah. Elderly people who have assets from which they want to protect their children from paying the severe death tax, have their financial planner establish all these sales and trusts years before they get into their 80s. My parents have very little, but despise the thought of their kids paying the huge death tax. They established trusts funds in their 50s just in case they passed away early.

    He went to trial and didn't pay out $$$$$ to the accuser like the other wealthy researcher who is a somewhat famous author now. He was found not guilty.

    That school is in Normal Illinois, close to me. I have a brother inlaw that teaches over there. I will find out what he knows.
