Jerry Sandusky Arrested

November 6, 2011 by staff 

Jerry Sandusky Arrested, A former Penn State defensive coordinator was accused Saturday of sexually abusing eight boys in a case that has rocked the Big Ten university.

Jerry Sandusky, 67 years old, was arrested Saturday and released on $100,000 bail after being arraigned on 40 criminal counts, the state attorney general’s office said.

In addition, Penn State athletic director Tim Curley, 57, and Gary Schultz, 62, the school’s vice president for finance and business, have been charged with perjury and failing to report what they knew about the allegations. Mr. Schultz’s position includes oversight of the university’s police department. They were expected to turn themselves in Monday in Harrisburg.

Mr. Sandusky had long been considered the heir apparent to Joe Paterno, the legendary Penn State coach who has the most victories in major-college football history. Mr. Paterno, 84, wasn’t charged, authorities said, and the grand jury report didn’t appear to implicate him in wrongdoing. When Mr. Paterno first learned of one report of abuse he immediately reported it to Mr. Curley, prosecutors said. Mr. Sandusky was no longer coaching at the time and it isn’t clear whether Mr. Paterno followed up with Mr. Curley.
