Default Penn State AD Charged With Perjury Re Alleged Child Sexual Assaults

If true this is a sickening story

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....

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

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."

]Penn State president Graham Spanier called the allegations against Sandusky "troubling"

These allegations are a lot more than "troubling" - if true, every senior Penn State official who knew about the 2002 allegations and did not call the cops (including Saint JoePa) needs to be fired

I agree, they all should get sentenced if found guilty...

This is a huge story which won't go away any time soon. Absolutely disturbing.

My heart goes out to the victims.

im sorry to hear you were victimized caplovestroy...

i wasnt gonna do it, but i finally read the 23 page grand jury indictment, upon recent news that as many as 17 victims may now be coming forward-

http://www.myfoxphilly.com/dpp/sport...medium=twitter

completely disgusting. as a kid, penn st was a college i always wanted to go to/play for and was always one of my favorite football teams outside of PITT. naturally, i have always rooted for and appreciated the tradition and legacy of JOE PA.

he needs to be fired and i could really care less if they dont ever win another football game again. either paterno was covering up for his buddy (obvious choice) and is a complete idiot, or he had absolutely no idea what was going on (highly unlikely) and is an even bigger idiot.

if he had any dignity and not such a strong sense of pride, he would try to bow out gracefully immediately and attempt to do what is best for the program. unfortunately for him, he is probably "damned if you do, damned if you dont".

right now, its hard not to look at him as a creeper just like that predator who was on his staff.

from what i gathered on espn radio , paterno DID get the story and passed it along. my problem with paterno and everyone else who had heard about this years ago , just let it all be swept under the damn carpet so the penn state boat wouldn't be rocked. as if passing the buck somehow washes your hands of it. bullshit !!! paterno and anyone else who had knowledge of this should all be sharing the prison cell with their pedophile buddy. how many more children were probably victimized because these ass clowns were afraid of the negative publicity ? how did this society become so sick that it puts protecting an institutions reputation and finances ( catholic church included ) above protecting children .

I just read a article on homepage that hes announcing his retirement....This is a huge shame, and the whole school will be scared forever. Im thinkin castrations maybe in order until some one learns a lesson. And i thought catholics were bad!

like i said, the best move was for him to step down immediately in a dignified manner. the midnight shots of all these college kids flooding the streets is rediculous.

Thank you Tony. It went on for 10 years and I still suffer to this day from it. I'm in counseling for it and hopefully someday I can put it to rest once and for all.

It's one of the most horrible things to live through. But somehow, it made me stronger and gave me an attitude that just won't quit.

Maybe that's why I love the Steelers....attitude baby!!!!
