Jerry Sandusky Charges
November 10, 2011 by staff
Jerry Sandusky Charges, Former longtime Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, known for his charitable work with at-risk children and for helping establish the school’s “Linebacker U” reputation, faces 40 charges — including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse — in Centre County, in a scandal that has ended the 46-year tenure of football coach Joe Paterno.
The 40 charges against the 67-year-old Sandusky also include indecent assault of a person less than 16 years of age, indecent assault of a person less than 13 years of age, corruption of minors and endangering the welfare of children.
Sandusky was arraigned Nov. 5 in Centre County court and later released on $100,000 unsecured bail.
Penn State athletic director Timothy Curley and the school’s senior vice president for finance and business Gary Schultz have been charged with perjury and failure to report suspected child abuse in relation to sex-abuse charges filed against Sandusky. They maintain their innocence.
Paterno and university president Graham Spanier were fired Nov. 9 by the board of trustees. Paterno had come under harsh criticism for not taking more action in 2002 after a graduate assistant reported seeing Sandusky in the Penn State showers with a young boy. Paterno notified Curley and Schultz. Paterno is not a target of the criminal investigation.
Curley asked to be placed on administrative leave Nov. 6 in order devote the time needed to defend himself against the allegations, according to Penn State officials.
Schultz also stepped down Nov. 6 in order to defend himself and return to retirement.
