Accused pervert and former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was arrested today in Centre County, Pennsylvania. Athletic Director Tim Curley and vice president for business and finance Gary Schultz were expected to turn themselves in today. They have allegedly failed to report and misrepresented facts in the ongoing investigation of Sandusky, who has allegedly molested up to 40 underage boys. Head coach Joe Paterno is not being charged.
Schultz’s position puts him in charge of the University Police Department.
Sandusky retired kind of suddenly in 1999, ostensibly to spend time with his family and devote himself to the The Second Mile, an organization he founded in 1977 in which he worked with young boys. He was given an office at the university after his retirement and frequently brought Second Mile children there.
In 2002, a graduate assistant in the football program walked in on Sandusky taking a shower with a young boy. He reported the incident, which resulted in a ban on Sandusky bringing Second Mile kids to the campus, but no action against Sandusky. It was not reported to the police by administration officials.
The Patriot-News has extensive, continuing coverage of Sandusky developments.
