Introduction (2 Feb 13)


Some of my research content is direct quotes from other sources. I try to give credit every time I do this, so that people can go to those original sources for more details. We see patterns. There are the patterns of behavior reported with different victims, where there is an apparent mode of operation, same stuff happening to many. There are patterns associated with other sex scandals, and cover-ups, which we have come to associate with human nature, and thus expect similar events to play out in this latest episode. These notes started off named PSU 2Mile Sandusky Sex Scandal, but the content has mushroomed as other perpetrators and institutions found to be tangled in the same and similar scandals, so document naming must evolve. Different people have said conflicting things to investigations, and different news media have different spins on apparently same events. The grand jury has chosen to believe one set of testimony over a different set of testimony. It is as yet unknown the identities of some boys who were assaulted. It is apparent that many people believe a different combination than what the grand jury is believing. As info comes out, there is speculation reported as fact. I think the victim #s are mixed up between different news sources. It is possible that some of my info transcription is incorrect. I have tried to share my sources of info, so that we can later go back and double check things.

Terminology Summarized (1 Nov 11)


Theres a lot of terminology which crops up in these cases, where it is worth reviewing what it really means, from both perspective of definition, and implications.

Accessory, aiding and abetting: A person, with knowledge of wrong doing, who
themselves did not do the criminal acts, but by their silence helped the crook escape to continue similar crimes.

Accountability is a concept lacking at many institutions, and in fact there is general

public disagreement what that means, or implies. So I started a series mid 2010 on the Science of Accountability, via Haiti Rewired.42 Many news stories43 are blasting the apparent lack of Moral Accountability, or Governance at PSU, since the initial indictments are leveled there.

Alleged: People are Not Guilty, until the judicial system proves otherwise. They may be
alleged to have done various bad stuff, according to victims, witnesses, evidence, and be charged with whatever crimes, but they are still Not Guilty until proven Guilty, or found Innocent of the charges. The 1998 investigation opted to not charge Mr. Sandusky with anything.

Blame the Victim: A defense often used on behalf of perpetrators is that somehow the

victim is to blame. There are people who dont think Joe Paterno and others did nothing wrong, that firing them was excessive. Some of them are now in this blame game of holding the abused boys, and witnesses to blame for what happened to their beloved Paterno.44

Also see testimony from # 7 about B.K 42 http://haitirewired.wired.com/group/scientistforhaiti 43 http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/10/sports/penn-state-fails-a-public-relations-test-leading-off.html http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/sports/columnists/s_766281.html http://espn.go.com/espn/commentary/story/_/id/7208029/penn-state-joe-paterno-failure-power 44 http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/7216338/penn-state-nittany-lions-child-sex-abuse-scandalvictims-become-scapegoats-lawyer-says

Boston Red Sox, for 3 decades, employed a sexual predator who solicited sex from the
young boys he would hire to work the clubhouse during spring training. 45 Like the Catholic Church, top management did everything it could to silence critics, and keep this behavior continuing.

Only in 1991, when a young aide held up a sign during a nationally televised Red Sox-Angels game that read "Don Fitzpatrick sexually assaulted me" did the Red Sox act, paying out a $100,000 settlement.

Catholic Church has not been the same, nor will it ever be the same, not simply because
the church used its power and moral authority to betray its membership and protect the offending clergy until it no longer could but also because it forgot who exactly needed the protection.46 It was both a world wide scandal, and also it was notable for many cities. In Boston it was 6 decades of dozens of priests abusing hundreds of victims. 47 The more they covered it up, the more damage when the story finally came out.

Child Abuse + Definitions (2 Jan 09)


children.

Child abuse is the physical, sexual, emotional mistreatment, or neglect of Child Abuse statistics from US Justice Dept: Children who suffer abuse, sexual abuse
included, are 59 percent more likely to be arrested as a juvenile, 28 percent more likely to be arrested as an adult and 30 percent more likely to commit violent crime. These numbers tell us there is a good chance that lives have been ruined before even being given a chance. 48

Research shows that about one in six boys are sexually abused before they are 16 years old. The number for girls is one in four. The statistics do not include verbal harassment or other forms of non-physical sexual abuse, such as forcing a child to watch a sexual act. 49 More info about Child Abuse in America.50

Child Protective Services Law of Pennsylvania51 probably covered incidents at


Victim # 1 elementary school. As usual, there is confusion by many people, how far the law extends. If the abuse is by a volunteer with an extra curricular activity at the school, but not by a paid employee, is the institution off the legal hook, not need to report it?

Child Protective Services Law of Pennsylvania (23 Pa.C.S.)52 requires that when a
staff member reports child abuse, the university administration has a legal responsibility to report, or cause report to be made, within 48 hours, by telephone, and in writing to the Dept

of Public Welfare of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. An oral report should also have been made to the local Children and Youth Services. The exact phraseology of the law, and how it should be interpreted, is under some dispute. 53 Since the boys were not affiliated with the University, University officials perhaps were not required to report anything. There is the question of whether the obligation to report to authorities, is for the actual witnesses, or the institutions leadership.
Each count of perjury, carries up to 7 years in jail. In real terms, they would likely face between one month and 12 months in jail, under the sentencing guidelines. The failing to report charge, a summary offence, carries a maximum of 90 days in jail and a $200 fine.54 Theres a 2 year statute of limitations involved.55 The perjury charges could live on, even without the reporting charges.

Childhood Sexual Abuse typical cases:


In a survey of incarcerated sex offenders, the average sex offender had only two known charges and five known offenses on his criminal record. But by the end of the second round of polygraph testing, each sex offender had confessed to an average of 110 victims and 318 offenses. Their 56 confessed history of offenses went back an average of 16 years before they were first arrested. One study estimates that only 3% of child sexual abuse cases are ever reported to the police. 1/3 of parents, about 31%, are non-supportive of their children after a molestation. Despite proof of the abuse, they continue to believe that the abuse complaint was a lie, a misunderstanding, or the childs fault. These parents rarely support pressing charges against the molester.
57

"The abuse often leads to poor self-esteem, an inability to stand up for your own rights, depression, helplessness. ... Some victims find it difficult to get involved in meaningful relationships. They have trouble holding jobs. They strike out at their families because they feel ashamed of themselves, or they feel betrayed by their families or their institution, school, church, whatever it might be."58

Civil Lawsuit Liability + Definitions (1 Nov 30)


Civil Lawsuit Liability:59 Jerry Sandusky inflicted great emotional distress on victims who will need
psychological counseling for years, to be able to cope with this.

The Second Mile foundation can be liable for failure to supervise Sandusky contact with children, especially since officials of the foundation received multiple alerts over the years that there may be some problem. Penn State created a dangerous situation. Mike McQueary, and two janitors, witnessed stuff, reported it to their superiors, but failed to report it to the police, nor did their chain of command. Did that contribute to a predators continued behavior? Clinton County High School similarly had suspicious behavior observed, but no contact with the police nor child protective services.

Clery Act + Definitions (2 Feb 14)

The federal Clery Act, originally known as the Campus Security Act, requires colleges and
universities to report on an annual basis to the US Dept of Education, all criminal activity reported to campus police or other authorities. So a major issue is what discretion top authorities of institutions have with internal investigations of alleged improper behavior. Sometimes they will in fact be correct, that nothing happened.

The "Clery Act" is named in memory of 19 year old university freshman Jeanne Ann Clery who was raped and murdered while asleep in her residence hall room on April 5, 1986.60 It was passed in 1990. In later years there were a number of amendments to increase protection for victims, whistle blowers, and provide other logical measures.

Corroboration: To avoid he said she said conflicting testimony, there needs to be some
proof that what someone said is in fact valid. DNA evidence can help. Multiple witnesses can help, when it can be shown they are unlikely to be colluding with each other, 61 and have no other reason to dislike the person they are accusing. So a witness thought they saw some behavior. They could be mistaken what they saw, at the time. They may be unqualified to judge what they saw. When asked about it many years later, stuff can have fallen out of their brains. Thinking and talking about it over time, can also confuse memory.

Ethics: We can reason out how people ought to behave under various circumstances,
come up with a set of standards. See Morality.

Evidence: The sixth amendment62 to the US constitution includes right to face accuser.
The US Supreme Court has expanded that right so that when the accuser is evidence, the defense has right to cross-examine technician whoever interpreting that evidence.

Hate Crime = the criminal chooses the victims because they are in some category of
society, or age, or gender.

Hazing can be a sex crime.63

Hearsay: The courts want direct evidence.

What did you personally witness, not what you think happened, not what someone else told you, what you saw, heard, tasted, touched, etc. In 2000 there were TWO people who saw Sandusky showering with a juvenile. Both of them
reported to the same supervisor. One of them pointed out Sandusky to that supervisor, before he left the parking lot with the kid. So you have THREE people who saw Sandusky at the facility, two of them witnessed showering, one witnessed the sex acts. Unfortunately, the last one is no longer mentally stable to testify, so we only have what the supervisor remembers being told, which is potentially hearsay now.

Hierarchy in any organization, such as government, corporations, academia, the


military, there is a hierarchy of more important people, where the lower echelon personnel are handicapped when making accusations against the more important people. Indecent Assault

Intervention + Definitions (1 Nov 16)

Intervention: You witness what you believe to be a crime. You attempt to stop it by

getting involved physically. This is fraught with danger. The crook can win the fight. Later you can be charged with a crime, and the original crook get off scot free. It is called vigilantism, taking the law into your own hands. Many people have witnessed what they thought was a crime, tried to stop it, later investigation determined the witnesses were mistaken. Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse There is an enormous legal liability to civil law suits, where the families of victims can ask employers, to compensate the victims for their harm, and cost of medical care, thanks to staff of the institutions dropping the ball in protecting the children.64 Employers include: PSU, Second Mile, the elementary school.
The modus operandi for most sex offenders, who purport to assist, nurture and advise children. First sexual predators gain the trust of children and their parents. Then they take advantage.65

Morality: Various holy books (e.g. Bible, Koran) pass down from God how we are
supposed to behave. See Ethics.

Mormon Church believed that the road to salvation for a sexual predator was to put him
around children, the temptation to re-offend.66 Pedophile

Police: Once upon a time, the word of a police officer ranked higher than the person

apprehended. But now, so much has come out about some officers exceeding reasonable behavior, that good evidence is needed.

Power corrupts, with unmitigated temptation. The more power, the more temptation,
the greater risk of corruption.67 This is one reason why we constantly hear stories of corruption of political leaders, various celebrities. we should respond when we witness various suspicious activities.

Public Education: There is a need for improved education of the general public, how Rape = sex against the will of one party. Children cannot give consent.
Penn State and Second Mile could be charged under RICO crime statutes, for the organized crime of covering up child sexual abuse.68 RICO charges cover "racketeering activity" involving the affairs of an "enterprise" and usually apply to organized crime, such as gambling and drug trafficking. But in Pennsylvania, the law defines "enterprise" generously and includes "any individual corporation and any group of individuals associated in fact [who are] engaged in commerce." This includes "legitimate as well as illegitimate entities and governmental entities. Translation: So long as money is being made somewhere, an association of individuals or entities is an enterprise.

Salvation is here, a victim might think, when Sandusky and victim see that they have been
witnessed, but it is another form of abuse when that rescue never materializes.69

Serial + Definitions (1 Nov 07)

Serial criminal When there are a string of crimes of very similar nature, by same

person, sometimes statute of limitations does not apply to the first in the series. It is considered all one string of crimes, where the statute of limitations applies to the end of the crime wave.

Sandusky Scandal Links (2 Feb 13)


What is known, who knew when, what were responsibilities to do something about it? 70
The Patriot-News broke the Sandusky story in March 2011, but no other media covered it until after the Grand Jury report came out.

We now know, that it was well known in some circles, for many years, that Sandusky was doing this stuff, so how come all other news media waited until the grand jury report came out, before jumping all over the story?71
Shrinking news budgets that have undermined investigative journalism. People, who cover a specialized beat, do not recognize how huge some odd-ball side story could be. A press-wary football program in a remote location. Police who reportedly dissuaded victims from talking to journalists. A lackluster response by Penn State that some have likened to a cover-up. A reticence to brand Sandusky as a pedophile without definitive evidence. You can have your requisite two or three sources and the story may be solid, but that wont hold up in a libel suit. Most of the local audience is more angry about Paterno being fired, than what happened to the boys.

This is typical news media. There is shocking stuff they do not cover.

I suspect reasons the news media is now swarming all over this story:
Me too once a handful of news media treat it as a big story, they all have to. Nov 4, 2011: The Grand Jury indictment had been filed under seal, but because of a computer glitch it had mistakenly been made public.72 This degree of gory detail is rarely made public. The arrested accused are big important people, in the sports celebrity world, at a well known institution. Scores of other people get arrested, or investigated, regarding very similar accusations, but dont even get a tiny mention by the media. Look at humanitarian NGO history for example. Sex for food, and sex for jobs, has been a staple diet for refugees for decades, part of the cost of getting the humanitarian aid that well meaning people around the world donate, unaware of the slimy way in which it is often delivered. In some cases, after years of abuse, some nation discovers that scores or their people were orchestrating this, and puts a stop to their share of the damage. 73 But our news media ignores this story. What makes this newsworthy is the high rank of the accused. Institutions, of the accused, immediate reaction is not to investigate, nor seek to protect victims, but to seek to discredit the accusers. Boston Red Sox now acknowledges they had a pedophile on the payroll, but for 30 years they had been firing anyone who complained about it. Catholic Church successfully fought for decades, to cover up crimes of priests in many nations, before they were overwhelmed with the evidence. Uruguay now knows its soldiers raped a Haitian teenager, but that nations first response was to threaten to sue for libel, anyone reporting the accusations, which tarnished the nations reputation.

There are stories in which we are told this is the worst ever. Statistically it seems incredible that every story is the worst ever, unless human beings are being incredibly venal and stupid, which unfortunately is true. Many of the news links, below, reiterate much of the same story. When I see info which is new to me, I add it helter-skelter through these notes, with links to my sources. This directory is far from all of them. We can find lots via News Search Engines; going to these stories, which often have links to others. Look at my footnotes. Throughout my notes I give full urls for info sources, because some of my contacts have hassles with using hyperlinks.

This investigation is continuing. There were other similar scandals earlier, in which nothing was done about what was found out. This reminds me of the Catholic Church scandal, VA Tech shooting, and the situation in Haiti. Many people knew pieces of a story, but were unable to connect the dots because of a mixture of different authorities told different things, laws, cover-ups, how testimony by witnesses is often treated or not believed, victims feeling too embarrassed to report incidents, and a lack of organization of records to show patterns of bad behavior by same people. the Altoona Mirror took a look at how students at the university are dealing with the negative attention. Students seemed angry at Penn State officials for the cover up, while troubled by the hit 74 the universitys image is taking because of the scandal. Center Daily Times:75 Christian Science Monitor76 Culpeper Star Exponent described how the Sandusky allegations are typical of most

childhood sexual abuse cases. Nearly everything from the amount of sexual abuses Sandusky allegedly committed to the time it took for him to be charged with a crime fit in line with multiple 77 studies on the subject.

ESPN78 Fox News79 claims to be fair and balanced. I do not believe they are either, but I try to be fair and balanced with everyone, including them. Grand Jury report80 Los Angeles Times81 New Yorker82 Patriot-News, the largest daily newspaper in Harrisburg, Pa., had a full front page editorial on
83

Tuesday which addressed the scandal. The opening lines are: There are the obligations we all have to uphold the law. There are then the obligations we all have to do what is right. The editorial calls for Penn State President Graham Spanier to step down, and for PSU to not extend Paternos contract. However, it does argue that Paterno should not be fired or step down and be allowed to retire at the end of the year with dignity.

When an employee observes misbehavior at a company, it is normal practice to report that up through the hierarchy of the company, sometimes to a department in charge of managing particular kinds of problems, such as Human Resources. When should an employee also make reports directly to police or child protective services? I have wrestled with this type of issue multiple times in my career. 99
Child-advocacy experts say the purpose of such laws is to either clear the individual of any charges or ensure justice is done.100

Who Knew What When, and how rapidly did they react? (1 Nov 11)
The boys all testify they were uncomfortable with what happened, did not welcome it, but too young to know what to do about it. 1998 a mother questions wet hair of boy upon return of being with Mr Sandusky, contacts Penn State University police. Police investigate incidents with two different boys (Victim # 6 and B.K.), where Sandusky had admitted to showering with both of them. State child protective services and university police get Sandusky to promise no more showers with boys. DA declines to charge Sandusky with anything. A key player, guiding what to do in this case is, Wendell Courtney who was attorney for both the University and The Second Mile. However, An investigator for

Children and Youth Services broke the news to the mother: It was all a big mistake, the mother said she was told.101 She had imagined Sandusky saying he showered with the boys. Nothing happened.

In 2008, after 3 years of fighting off Mr Sandusky advances, the boy identified as victim # 1 asks his mother for help. The mother contacts the school, which had personnel who already knew about Mr. Sandusky suspicious behavior. The school contacts the police. This launches an investigation which ultimately leads to the recent arrests. 2006 or 2007: Joseph Miller, a wrestling coach at a Clinton County elementary school enters a weight room at school and finds Victim # 1 and Mr. Sandusky in physical contact. I have yet to learn if any action resulted from this witnessing, at the time, other than much later Grand Jury testimony. 2000 Janitors James Jim Calhoun and Ronald Petrotsky witness Sandusky showering with a boy. Calhoun sees more details, actual rape occurring. He is badly shaken by what he witnesses. Both promptly report details to their boss Jay Witherite. No further action is taken. The janitor staff fears they could be fired as whistle blowers.

2/15/2012 Alleged Perpetrators: B Fine; C Fischer; L N ReVille; J Sandusky; 2002 Coaching assistant Mike McQueary witnesses Sandusky raping a boy in the shower, late at night. He is badly shaken by what he witnesses. He phones his father, John McQueary, seeking guidance what to do. Mike and John visit Mikes boss, Joe Paterno on Saturday to report the incident. Joe then phones his boss Tim Curley, and meets with him on Sunday. No action is taken to identify the boy, or report this to police or child protective services, as required by Pennsylvania law. Weeks later, University administration reviews the case, instructs Sandusky to stop doing his thing on campus. It is treated as a prank. Second Mile is informed. It is unclear if they did anything about this.

Time Line more detail (1 Nov 29)


For readability and navigation, I am splitting this into sections. Reports in different news media is off by up to several years, when exactly some things happen, so there may also be inaccuracies in my notes digest. For earlier picture, see my G+ sharing.102 I have since added more detail here. 1950 Joe Paterno starts his coaching career at Penn State. 1966 Joe Paterno becomes head coach at Penn State. 1969 Jerry Sandusky starts his coaching career at Penn State as a defensive line coach. 1976 Bernie Fine joins Syracuse as an assistant coach. 1977 Jerry Sandusky, and his wife Dottie, form The Second Mile charity. 1978-1981 Then 11 year old Paul McLaughlin was sexually abused by a Penn State
education professor and two other men. The abuse took place for four years in four states, 103 including Pennsylvania until 1981.

1980s and 1990s are when Bobby Davis says he was sexually abused by Bernie Fine, see 2002 for more info. 1980s and 1990s are when Mike Lang says he was sexually abused by Bernie Fine, see 2011 Nov-17 for more details.
1987 Oct Sandusky interview, and later events, have new meaning in light of latest events.

In 1990 Congress passed the Clery Act, mandating that colleges and universities, which receive public funds, make an annual report to US Dept of Education, providing statistics about crimes on campus. In subsequent years there were amendments to increase protections for victims of sex crimes.105 This means that the Elementary School is off the hook under the Clery Act, but the 1998, 2000, and 2002 incidents at PSU are covered. Also some of the Syracuse incidents are covered. In 1992 Congress amended the Clery Act to provide basic rights to victims of sexual assault on campus. 1994: A boy identified only as Victim # 7 meets Mr. Sandusky through The Second Mile at age 10. The boy now in 2011 is age 26. Victim # 7 testifies about multiple incidents of attempted inappropriate sexual contact by Mr. Sandusky. Victim # 7

He claims that later, sometime between 1996 and 1998, Mr. Sandusky pins him against a shower wall and places the boy's hand on his penis. He testifies to multiple incidents of indecent contact. Victim # 5 testimony includes some info about contact between Mr. Sandusky and Victim # 6. 1996 or 1997: Victim # 4, age 12 or 13, allegedly has multiple indecent contacts with Mr. Sandusky. Victim # 4, now age 27 in 2011, became a fixture in the Sandusky household and attended many football events over the years. Mr. Sandusky allegedly helped Victim # 4 get marijuana. Either before or after alleged sexual assaults, the victim receives expensive gifts from Mr. Sandusky. More details in the Grand Jury report.107

Time Line 1998 onwards (1 Nov 11)


For earlier picture, see my G+ sharing.108 I have since added more detail here 1998: Victim # 6, then age 11, is taken to a locker room in the Penn State football facility, and Mr. Sandusky showers with him, allegedly giving him a bear hug, and serious inappropriate touching. When the boy was dropped off at home, still having wet hair after being allegedly assaulted in the shower, the boy's mother questions the wet hair, the boys demeanor, learns about the shower incident and contacts university police. In the mothers report to news media in 2011, she says that in that shower incident, there was another boy age 11. 1998: Detectives Ronald Schreffler and Ralph Ralston listen in on two phone conversations with the mother of Victim # 6, and Mr. Sandusky on May 13, 1998, and May 19, 1998. Mr. Sandusky admits to the joint showering, but not all the inappropriate touching.109 University police investigate, then county district attorney Ray Gricar decides not to press any criminal charges. The police at the time had investigated Mr. Sandusky contact both with Victim # 6, and another identified as Victim B.K., who had been subjected to treatment almost identical to Victim # 6. The grand jury has not yet been able to interview Victim B.K. because he is out of the country on military service.

2/15/2012 Alleged Perpetrators: B Fine; C Fischer; L N ReVille; J Sandusky; 1998: State Department of Public Welfare investigator, and the university police detective interview Mr. Sandusky. He said he would not shower with children again.110 State Department of Public Welfare investigator Jerry Lauro told the

grand jury that Sandusky said he showered naked with the youth and hugged him, "admitted that it was wrong," and promised not to shower with any child again.111

Apparently that is the end of that case. No warning to The Second Mile, No constraints on Mr. Sandusky movements on any campus, around any other children. 1999: Penn State's trip to the Alamo Bowl in 1999 has attracted the interest of Texas. San Antonio police Sgt. Chris Benavides, and police department spokesman Officer Matthew Porter, said Nov 10, 2011 their department is "looking into the possibility that an offense may have happened" with victim # 4, while the football team was in town.112 The PA grand jury report says Sandusky took one boy he allegedly molested to that game and threatened to send him home when the victim resisted his advances. 1999: Jerry Sandusky Retires from his coaching position at Penn State University. For earlier picture, see my G+ sharing.113 I have since added more detail here. 2000 Summer, Victim # 3, between 7th and 8th grade at the time, and now age 24 in 2011, meets Mr. Sandusky. He claims his genitals are touched and there are bear hugs in the shower. More details in the Grand Jury report.114 Victim # 3s testimony included what he knew about Mr. Sandusky and Victim # 4. 2000 Fall, A janitor James Jim Calhoun witnesses Mr. Sandusky in the shower at the PSU football complex with Victim # 8, whose identity is still unknown. The boy was pinned against the wall while Mr. Sandusky performed a sex act on him. The janitor fled the scene in panic, but immediately tells other janitorial staff and his boss, what he had witnessed. His supervisor tells him how to make an official report. Such a report is never made; there is discussion among janitorial staff of concern about their jobs if they report such incidents.115 This is the same shower, where the graduate coaching assistant witnessed the same type of activity 2 years later. This 2000 Fall incident was also witnessed by janitor Ronald Petrotsky, who described the boy as aged 11 to 13, also reported to the same boss, Jay Witherite, what he witnessed. Today, Jim suffers from mental disease and cannot testify, but multiple people are able to testify what he told them at the time of the incident. 2001: Citadel Military College, in South Carolina, learns of accusations of inappropriate
conduct with children by Louis Neal "Skip" ReVille, who was a counselor at the

military school's camp.116 They had an internal investigation when they found out in 2007 thanks to accusations from the alleged victims, and like the Penn State 1998 internal investigation, ultimately decided to take no action. Now fast forward to 2011 when the same guy is arrested for child abuse after he became principal at Coastal Christian Preparatory School, and coach of the kids there. 2001: Marcus Wayne Parker, a Wolfson High School graduate from Jacksonville, was paddled so
severely in a hazing ritual conducted by the FAMU band members that he suffered acute renal 117 failure. This was one of several hazing incidents at the same institution in the news after November 2011 incident aboard a bus, leading to the death of another band member. This event led to a state law making hazing a felony.

Time Line 2002 onwards (1 Nov 15)


For earlier picture, see my G+ sharing.118 I have since added more detail here.
2002 - Syracuse ball boy Bobby Davis says he informed Syracuse police that he was subjected to inappropriate contact by an associate men's basketball coach" during the 1980s and 1990s." Syracuse police say they told Davis the statue of limitations had passed and nothing else could be done unless he knew of any ongoing or more recent allegations against Bernie Fine.119
In 2002, twenty years after the abuse, as Paul McLaughlin was recovering from the psychological damage caused by the abuse, McLaughlin reported the abuse to officials at Penn State, where the professor was still employed. The university declined to investigate his charges, and McLaughlin could not seek justice in the Pennsylvania criminal or civil justice systems because the statute of limitations had expired.120.

2002 A Graduate coaching assistant, (Mike McQueary, according to some news

reports) witnesses March 1, what he later reports is Jerry Sandusky raping what looks like a 10 year old boy, now labeled by the Grand Jury as victim # 2 (that they found out about). The young assistant fled the scene in panic, then phones his father for guidance on how to proceed. The assistant, and his father, report it to Joe Paterno March 2, who in turn reports it to athletic director Tim Curley, March 3. Then the assistant is called to repeat what he witnessed to VP Gary Shultz, mid March. This info is in turn reported to the University President, and to Second Mile charity. Exactly who told whom what, and who was in which meeting, is conflicting testimony from the participants. Sanduskys university and charity access to children and facilities are allegedly restricted. No reports are made to the police, nor to child protective services, in violation of Pennsylvania law. Identity of the child victim is still unknown. It is evident from the Grand Jury testimony, that it was obvious to PSU VP Schultz that there was a lot in common between the 1998 and 2002 incidents. As The Second Miles CEO Jack Raykovitz testified to the Grand Jury, he was informed in 2002 by Pennsylvania State University Athletic Director Tim Curley that

Mr. Curley also shared that the information had been internally reviewed and that there was no finding of wrongdoing. At no time was The Second Mile made aware of the very serious allegations contained in the Grand Jury report. 121 2003: Several news media said they first investigated the Bernie Fine accusations in 2003, but decided not to run the story because there was no independent evidence to corroborate the allegations. See 2011 Nov-17 for more details. For earlier picture, see my G+ sharing.122 I have since added more detail here. In 2005, Ray Gricar, the DA who had decided in 1998 not to charge Sandusky, went missing, mysteriously and suspiciously.123 In 2005, Ricardo Guevara, a teachers aide at Miramonte elementary school, was
convicted in 2005 of lewd acts with three girls. He was caught putting his hand into the pants of one girl in the courtyard of the campusbut only after three earlier sets of complaints against him by students were discounted by Los Angeles school officials.124 2005 Bobby Davis reports the allegations to Syracuse University. Syracuse hires an outside firm to conduct and investigation,125 concludes it was "unable to find any corroboration of the allegations."126

2005 or 2006: Victim # 1 meets Mr. Sandusky. In 2007, they start spending time together during the track season at the boy's high school, with the boy staying overnight at Mr. Sandusky's residence in State College, during which sexual activity allegedly occurred. Mr. Sandusky gave the boy expensive gifts . See the grand jury report for many more details about the relationship between Mr. Sandusky and Victim # 1.127 2006: California passes Matts Law making it a felony if hazing leads to serious injuries or death.128 2006 or 2007: Joseph Miller, a wrestling coach at a Clinton County elementary school enters a weight room at school and finds Victim # 1 and Mr. Sandusky lying on their sides in physical contact.129 Later the boy gives testimony about inappropriate advances by Mr Sandusky leading to them being in this position. Also, Steven Turchetta, assistant principal and football coach at victim #1s school, testified as to

It is unclear to me, from the news stories I have read so far, if anyone at the school reported this to police or child protective services, prior to the mothers efforts in late 2008.

Time Line 2007 onwards (1 Nov 08)


For earlier picture, see my G+ sharing.130 I have since added more detail here. In 2007, Sanduskys attorney, Joe Amendola represented former Penn State tailback Austin Scott
after another student accused Scott of rape in 2007 (the case was later dropped), got a teen-age 131 client pregnant during the mid-1990s. 2007: A Hazing incident at Rider University in NJ, led to the death of one pledge, and serious injury of another.

Throughout 2007 and 2008: Mr. Sandusky allegedly performed a sex act more than 20 times on Victim # 1. In 2008, Congress amended the Clery Act to protect whistle blowers, too late for the 2000 janitors. 2008: information is coming out about a case which may be other than Victim # 1. A Nov 9, 2011 report raised questions about the initial response of officials at Central

Mountain High School in Clinton County in 2008 when the mother of one of the accusers, a 15-year-old boy, confronted them with allegations against Sandusky.132 According to the grand jury, Sandusky, who was working as a volunteer coach at the school, abused the boy over a two- to three-year period before the boy revealed the abuse to his mother. The report in the Harrisburg Patriot-News quoted the mother as saying school officials "told me to go home and think about what I wanted to do, and I was not happy. They said I needed to think about how that would impact my son if I said something like that. I went home and got [my son] and we came to [Children and Youth Services] immediately," said the woman, who was not identified.133 By law, CYS agencies must report such allegations to law enforcement authorities.

Spring 2008: Victim # 1 terminates contact with Mr. Sandusky while a freshman at
Central Mountain High School in Clinton County. Later in 2008, or early in 2009: Victim # 1's mother contacted the school, which barred Mr. Sandusky from the school, and reported the situation to police. November 2008, Mr. Sandusky informed The Second Mile that he had learned he was being investigated as a result of allegations made against him by an adolescent male in Clinton County, PA. Although he maintained there was no truth to the

2/15/2012 Alleged Perpetrators: B Fine; C Fischer; L N ReVille; J Sandusky; claims, we are an organization committed first and foremost to the safety and wellbeing of the children we serve. Consistent with that commitment and with The Second Mile policy, we immediately made the decision to separate him from all of our program activities involving children. Thus, from 2008 to present, Mr. Sandusky has had no involvement with Second Mile programs involving children. 134 2009: The latest investigation, led by Pa AG, which led to 2011 indictments, began.135 There are conflicting stories as to what exactly, in 2008 or 2009 triggered the investigation. Was it a mother complaining to a school, a mother complaining to child services? Did it happen in late 2008 or early in 2009? Between January 2008 and July 2009: There were 57 calls from Mr. Sandusky's cell phone to Victim # 1's home phone, and 61 calls from Mr. Sanduskys home phone to Victim #1s home phone. There were no phone calls from Victim # 1 to Mr. Sandusky in that time period. An age 15 youth, identified as F.A., testified that he had both witnessed inappropriate contact between Mr. Sandusky and Victim #1, and himself had to fight off inappropriate contact upon himself, by Mr. Sandusky. Off-topic perhaps, but I believe relevant to the big picture: Jan 2010 was the Haiti earthquake.136 In my studies of the disaster, which is the attempted humanitarian rescue of that nation, I have found multiple stories of charities, allegedly existing to aid disaster victims, which instead were breeding grounds welcoming pedophiles, rapists, and people engaged in sex slavery rings. There is little or no regulation of non-profits. Audits of major NGOs have found no correlation between what they say they are doing, and what can be proven they are doing. This story, of Mr. Sandusky and his Second Mile charity, I am unhappy to share, is not an aberration. The only difference is, the news media is covering this Penn State scandal. September 2010: Mr. Sandusky retires from The Second Mile.

Time Line 2010 onwards (1 Feb 10)

http://www.thesecondmile.org/welcome.php http://www.wfmz.com/Timeline-Sandusky-abuse-case/-/121798/4691376/-/as4iti/-/index.html 136 My notes on the Haiti debacle is multiple places, including in Google Docs collection labeled: Disaster Avoidance, which is a collection of notes about major disasters, what we ought to learn from them to mitigate future disasters. The one labeled 1 Year UN is one of several analyses of who the heck should be in charge, and whats needed for them to be doing a better job. https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B9euafJH4bZMTA0YTM0YzktNTI0YS00NjVhLTg5NTItY2RiZjhiM2MzODkw Also see in http://www.haiti.prizm.org/ the one labeled 1 Year NGO cooperation NOT about the infinity of different organizations in Haiti, whose interaction borders on anarchy. In mid 2010, I started a series of posts in http://haitirewired.wired.com/group/scientistforhaiti on what I called the Science of Accountability. In that series, Sept 2010, I shared news about Feed the Children a charity whose annual reports said they were spending absolutely no money on food for children. Charity rating services had reported this for 10 years, but authorities took no action, until the leaders got in an internal dispute about million dollar mansion bought by the charity for family of the founders. Charity Watch had given Feed the Children its "Most Outrageous Charity Award"; while American Institute of Philanthropy has been giving Feed the Children an "F" grade now for over a decade.

2/15/2012 Alleged Perpetrators: B Fine; C Fischer; L N ReVille; J Sandusky; December 2010: Mr. McQueary (the assistant coach who witnessed 2002 incident, and reported it up Penn State chain of command) testifies before grand jury. The grand jury finds his testimony to be very credible. In late 2010, the Los Angeles Miramonte elementary school scandal in 2010 came to
police attention, thanks to an alert CVS photo-lab technician. Otherwise, the abuse would probably continued for years, without detection by school authorities.137

The Second Mile was first contacted by the Attorney Generals office in early 2011. Since then, we have done everything in our power to cooperate with lawenforcement officials and will continue to do so.138 Jan. 12, 2011: Mr. Curley and Mr. Schultz testify before grand jury. Schultz acknowledged similarities between the 1998 and 2002 incidents, and said that how the 1998 incident was handled, was approved by Wendell Courtney who was attorney for both the University and The Second Mile. March 2011: Harrisburg (Pa.) Patriot-News reports that grand jury is investigating

Sandusky on allegations of indecent assault against a teenage boy. The Patriot-News reports that five people with knowledge of the case said the grand jury has been meeting for 18 months and has called witnesses including Paterno and Curley. 139 Penn State declines comment. April 2011: Pittsburgh radio host Mark Madden wrote a story revealing Penn State for

much of the cover-up of Jerry Sandusky's alleged child rape that has been exposed in November 2011. While it didn't raise many eyebrows back then, six months later it looks 140 to be incredibly accurate.
October 2011:

A woman witnesses suspicion of a co-worker interest in child porn. Since the co-worker works with young children, she reports it to her bosses at Three Rivers Health Solutions in Missoula Montana, who tell her NOT to call the police, because of insufficient evidence. She reports it anyway. The police find sufficient evidence to arrest the man, but the witness is fired for being a whistleblower.141 Nov 4, 2011: The Grand Jury indictment had been filed under seal, but because of a computer glitch it had mistakenly been made public.142 Nov. 4, 2011: Charges filed against Mr. Sandusky related to sexual abuse of eight boys, and against Mr. Curley and Mr. Shultz for lying to the grand jury, and failing to report the incidents to the proper authorities. Nov 6, 2011: Sandusky is released on $100,000.00 bail, after being arrested on 40 counts.

Nov. 7, 2011: Top officials give press conference on what is known so far. 144 The Grand Jury has found evidence of at least 8 child victims, of whom 6 have been identified.145 "Their inaction likely allowed a child predator to continue victimizing

children for many years," Pa AG said of the two Penn State officials 146 charged with perjury and failure to report: athletic director Tim Curley and vice president for finance and business Gary Schultz.147

Nov 7, 2011: Second Mile said it was never "aware of the very serious allegations

contained in the grand jury report" and noted that it had removed Sandusky from any programs involving children in 2008, after it had been notified of allegations against 148 him.

Time Line 2011 Nov-8 onwards (1 Nov 11)


Nov 8, 2011: A man has come forward, identifying himself as one of Sanduskys victims.149 The individual, now in his 20s and living in Lycoming County,
contacted state police at Montoursville Sunday after learning about the charges against Sandusky. He had met Sandusky thru Second Mile. The man had remained silent about the alleged incidents that occurred in the early 2000s, not telling his parents or authorities.150

Nov 8, 2011: Fox News reports that many more people have contacted the phone #s which authorities had released, asking for more victims to come forward. 151 Fox estimates the count is up to 20 different victims. Other news media later join in.152 Nov 8, 2011: Rep. Pat Meehan, R-Pa., a former U.S. attorney, sent a letter on Tuesday to Education Secretary Arne Duncan asking the department to investigate Penn State University, whether the university violated the Clery Act, which requires colleges and universities to report on an annual basis, to the Dept of Education, all criminal activity reported to campus police or other authorities.

Nov 10, 2011: Pennsylvania Rep. Dan Deasy, D-Allegheny, said in a news
release he's proposing legislation to expand requirements for mandatory reporting of sexual abuse of a child.161 His bill would require someone who witnesses child sexual abuse, or someone who is informed by a witness to report it to law enforcement. Failure to do so would be a third-degree felony punishable by up to seven years in prison. I have posted various places, what I think needs fixing in the laws, where there is obviously wide disagreement, even within the legal profession, how to interpret them.162

Nov 11, 2011: Mary O'Connor, a spokeswoman for the Tampa (Fla.) Police Department,

said police are looking into what might have happened during a Penn State trip to the Outback Bowl in Tampa, but haven't decided whether to open a criminal investigation. The grand jury report says the trip was in 1998, although Penn State actually was there in 166 1996. The department plans to make an announcement on Monday Nov-14, she said. 167 There is also an investigation in Texas. See 1999 in time line.

Nov 17, 2011: Police were investigating an assistant basketball coach at Syracuse University on allegations of child molestation. Syracuse placed longtime assistant coach Bernie Fine on administrative leave "in light of the new allegations and the Syracuse City Police investigation," the school said. Fine is accused of molesting a former Syracuse ball boy, Bobby Davis, who is now 39, in 1980s and 1990s. Several news media said they first investigated the accusations in 2003, but decided not to run the story because there was no independent evidence to corroborate the allegations. Recently, a second man contacted ESPN, alleging that Fine also molested him. That person said he decided to come forward after seeing the Penn State coverage.180 Problems with rape before DNA were he said she said, because rapists dont do their thing in public, people more likely to believe one side.

Fowler and Deputy Chief Sean Broton over the handling of the 2002 probe of the former ball boy's molestation claims.

Nov 27, 2011: Syracuse University announced Nov-27 that associate men's basketball

Nov 27, 2911: A tape, made public by the Syracuse-based Post-Standard

make a statement Tuesday challenging the implications of a tape recording of a 2002 telephone conversation with one of her husband's accusers that appears to show she knew of the alleged sexual abuse. "She'll even say that's her voice," nephew Matt Govendo said, but that the sections of the tape -- excerpts of which were made public by the Syracuse-based Post-Standard newspaper and ESPN -- "are all tampered with."192 The tape has been turned over to the police.193 I am sure the secret service will be analyzing it to pursue these allegations.

The abuse occurred 1992 to 1996 at the coach's State College home, in a Penn State locker room, on trips to Philadelphia and a bowl game. This man is other than victims # 1-8 named in the Grand Jury report.198 Nov 30, 2011: I brought my G+ connections up-to-date on latest developments.

Penn State assistant football coach Mike McQueary testified Friday that he told administrators he saw Jerry Sandusky sexually molesting a boy but said he wasn't certain that it was intercourse. This was at a preliminary hearing for suspended athletic director Tim Curley and retired university vice president Gary Schultz. McQueary said he watched for one or two seconds from about six feet away before turning away in disgust, not wanting to see more. "They looked directly in my eyes," McQueary told the court. He said he was shocked, horrified, not thinking straight. I was distraught.207 Dec 20, 2011: Bill Conlin of Philadelphia Daily News is accused of having molested three girls and one boy, aged 7 to 12, 40 years ago in the 1970s. Like in the
Sandusky case, people aware of the allegations, involving Conlin years ago, did not go to police. Videotaped details have been taken from the four victims, but statute of limitations means it is too late for justice.208

Jan 13, 2012: The new PSU President Rodney Erickson answers irate alumni. For example, top leadership waited until the news story broke before doing anything, when they allegedly had been fully aware of the grand jury investigation for almost a year. Erickson promised he would consider many of the suggestions raised by alumni, including live-streaming meetings by the board of trustees and making it a

contractual requirement of all university staff that they contact the authorities if they suspect child abuse is taking place.214 I think we need some clarification here, of the constraints imposed by Grand Jury confidentiality. Many top administrators of PSU knew about the Grand Jury investigation, because they personally were called to testify there, as early as the end of 2010, and yet they took no action regarding the allegations until after the news media storm exploded, which was totally quiet until the Grand Jury report was leaked due to a computer error which has not yet been explained. A couple of journalists reported on the story many months earlier, with very little reaction. Was it treated as improvable, potentially libelous, and thats why the earlier scoop was not pursued? There is other evidence that journalists had details, employees had details, but nothing done with those details. There seems to be a common thread here. It is common knowledge in many institutions that there is some kind of serious problem, but the authorities within those institutions downplay, suppress anyone speaking out about it. Do nothing about this, while the problem continues unabated. Then it reaches the news media, and suddenly the authorities proclaim that we take this seriously, we are going to fix it. They put on a show of doing something meaningful to address the issues. But this theater never starts until after the news media circus, which could have been totally avoided by fixing the problems when they first found out about them.

Jan 14, 2012: I brought my G+ connections up-to-date on latest developments Jan 14, 2012: Former Penn State coach Joe Paterno told the Washington Post that he "didn't

asking the court to allow Sandusky to communicate with his grandchildren by mail, email, telephone, or by Skyping, a type of video-chatting over the Internet.218

Feb 14, 2012: Another writer observes a pattern in all this.230 - The abuser is seen doing whatever, by many adult witnesses, who are unable to grasp their responsibilities to report this to whatever authorities. - When victims report incidents, it is he said she said, where whoever they report them to, do not wish to deal with the issue. - Once authorities start investigating, they often find that the abuse had been going on for decades. - The lives of many victims have been ruined.

Institutions (2 Feb 13)


The reputations of institutions are in the hands of the people who work there. Many different institutions have been named as contaminated by these sex abuse, of children, scandals. Thanks to past history of various kinds of mischief in college sports, they are held to high standards, at least on paper. In my studies of our Economic Disaster, its causes, and what can be done about it, I learned that football coaches, at major universities can be paid up to 100 times as much as academic professors. In my almost 50 year career as a computer technician, I have learned that the people, we report to in business, are paid more than the people doing the reporting.

PSU = Penn State University (1 Nov 20)


Here is the PSU web site: http://live.psu.edu/ It has several posts about this developing story. The university is paying legal costs for Curley and Schultz because the allegations against them concern how they fulfilled their responsibilities as employees, spokeswoman Lisa Powers said.239 This was approved by PSU President Spanier. The Board of Trustees was displeased with being kept in the dark about a lot of decisions relevant to this scandal, fired Spanier Nov 9, 2011. Penn State receives millions in state tax dollars, but the university is not covered by the open records law which applies to state agencies. That sets it apart from almost every public university in the nation, said Adam Goldstein, counsel to the Arlington, Va.-based national Student Press Law Center. In the aftermath of the child sex scandal and cover-up alleged in a grand jury report, lawmakers will examine to what extent Penn State, Pitt, Temple and Lincoln the state-related universities should be covered by state open records law.240

PSU Alumni are deeply troubled by the revelations.241 More than 500,000 alumni
collectively gave $195.3 million to Penn State last year. Will they continue to give with the scandal enveloping the university? PSU Alumni raise $430,000.00 to help victims of sex abuse.242 Moody's Investors Service, a credit rating agency which performs analyses on commercial and government agencies. On Nov. 11, the service said it might downgrade the credit ratings of Penn State. The university currently has $1 billion in debt outstanding with a high credit rating of Aa1. In its statement, Moody's said it will evaluate "the potential scope of the reputational and financial risk" of the Sandusky scandal.243 PSU has a total operating budget of $4.6 billion.

PSU Athletic program (1 Nov 20)


This scandal may cut into sponsorship income, which was over $24 million linked to the football program.244 Theres talk of PSU getting kicked out of the NCAA for a year.

PSU Police (1 Nov 17)


How do university police compare to city and state police? It depends. This varies by state, campus, and point in history.245
The Penn State police force comprises 46 armed officers. According to state law, these have both the power and the duty "to prevent crime, investigate criminal acts and carry the offender before the proper alderman, justice of the peace, magistrate or bail commissioner."246 However, the relevant judicial authority, for campus cops to report to, might be an administrative system on campus, and not the local district attorney.

Campus police face regulations under the federal Clery Act, which requires them to publicly report campus crimes and warn students when they happen. The Department of Education is now investigating Penn State for possible Clery Act violations. Universities also face an array of civil requirements under Title IX

Because of a state law and its unusual status as a state related but not fully public institution, university police records are not open to the public, as municipal police reports would be.

PSU Board of Trustees (1 Nov 11)


Talk shows are shifting their attention to what the PSU Board of Trustees ought to do about this breaking news story.248 The Universitys Board of Trustees, met Sunday night, Nov. 6, and announced steps designed to increase the safety and security of all University facilities and to make changes to promote sufficient procedures.249 The chair of the Board of Trustees will:

Appoint a task force this week to engage external legal counsel to conduct an independent review of the Universitys policies and procedures related to the protection of children. This action is not intended to interfere with the ongoing judicial process. Publicize findings of the independent review. Review police reporting protocols with administrators. Enhance educational programming around such topics.

The Board of Trustees had a phone meeting Tues Nov 08, 250 plans in person meeting Wed Nov 09, to discuss implications of the child sex-abuse scandal, and the university's response.

Many board members are said to have been furious that they have been kept out of the loop at key points since the charges against Sandusky were filed on Friday Nov4, including the fact that Spanier sent out a statement offering "unconditional support" for Athletic Director Tim Curley and college vice president Gary Schultz, both indicted for perjury and not reporting a sexual assault in the case. 251

The Board of Trustees issued a statement about the situation, Tues Nov-8, via the PSU website.252 Tom Corbett, Governor of Pennsylvania253 meets with the Trustees on Thurs Nov-10 and Fri Nov-11.

Various news sources say the Board of Trustees are looking for a replacement for PSU President Graham Spanier, and one of the candidates is Tom Ridge, formerly

Pennsylvania governor and U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security. 254 I also remember Tom Ridge doing a good job in the VA Tech shooting investigation. Other news sources say they are unable to confirm certain claims.

PSU BT Special Committee (1 Nov 22)


At its regular meeting on Friday, November 11, 2011, the Board will appoint a Special Committee, members of which are currently being identified, to undertake a full and complete investigation of 255 the circumstances that gave rise to the Grand Jury Report. This Special Committee will be commissioned to determine what failures occurred, who is responsible and what measures are necessary to insure that this never happens at our University again and that those responsible are held fully accountable. The Special Committee will have whatever resources are necessary to thoroughly fulfill its charge, including independent counsel and investigative teams, and there will be no restrictions placed on its scope or activities. Trustees named Merck pharmaceutical CEO Kenneth C. Frazier to chair an independent panel to investigate how the university handled the case. State Secretary of Education Ron Tomalis will serve as vice chairman of the panel.

Second Mile Charity (1 Nov 18)


Second Mile Charity257 founded by Jerry Sandusky, and his wife Dottie in 1977 as a sanctuary, safe house, for children at risk. It is estimated to reach 100,000 children a year. Over time, the function of the charity evolved from: a group foster home to help troubled boys; to helping children with absent or dysfunctional families. It has many worthwhile programs, uncontaminated by Mr. Sanduskys character weakness. 258 Unable to have children of their own, Jerry and Dottie adopt, and also accept foster children. In the 1998 case, someone at Second Mile knew that Mr. Sandusky had engaged in serious inappropriate behavior with boys. Wendell Courtney, who was attorney for both the

University and The Second Mile, was heavily involved in coordinating the investigation, according to grand jury testimony by PSU officials.259 In the 2002 case, someone at Second Mile knew that Mr. Sandusky had engaged in unusual behavior with boys. CEO Jack Raykovitz was identified in grand jury testimony by PSU officials, as who was informed. He also testified, but their story was that nothing serious had occurred. This is part of the conflicting stories problem. In 2008, Victim # 1 seeks help. This leads to his school contacting the police, who launch an investigation which ultimately leads to recent arrests. While claiming innocent of the charges, Sandusky notifies Second Mile, whose public statements now say that out of caution to protect the boys, they severed his contact with the boys, pending resolution of the investigation.260 Second Mile may go out of business. 261 In a statement on their web-site, Second Mile claims all inappropriate behavior occurred outside of any Second Mile activities, but urge anyone with relevant knowledge to contact the authorities: investigators from the Office of Attorney General at 814-863-1053 or Pennsylvania State Police at 814-470-2238. MSNBC TV asks:262
Should a judge who reportedly has volunteered for the same organization that former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky is alleged to have used to meet and abuse young boys have recused herself from his arraignment? Al Mac comment on this: Second Mile has served 100,000 kids a year since 1977, has been supported by countless football fans. Finding people not already entangled could be difficult. Charities in USA get next to no over-sight. The system is crook-friendly. Is it possible to find a jury which has not pre-judged the case, thanks to news media attention?

Fresh Air Charity (1 Nov 15)


The Fresh Air Fund, which sends disadvantaged New York City children to camps and volunteer host families in 13 U.S. states and Canada for "free summer experiences," announced it was checking into a possible Sandusky link. 263 At least one child from the New York City area stayed at the home of former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, who has been accused of pedophilia, during the 1990s, a

spokeswoman for the Fresh Air Fund said.264 Kotuk said the Fresh Air Fund is still reviewing
its files. "As of today, we believe that several children may have stayed in the Sandusky home in the 1970s," she said.

News reports from about a decade ago -- related to the promotion of Sandusky's memoir "Touched" -- mentioned that Sandusky and his wife, Dottie, served as volunteer hosts for children from The Fresh Air Fund for several years.265

Key People (2 Feb 13)


All people have responsibilities. The higher authority in a hierarchy can have higher responsibility to see that alleged misdeeds are reported to police, child protective services etc. make effort to identify children at risk, and do something to protect them. In this section I try to identify who are people named in the various articles as alleged perpetrators, and representatives of authorities trying to deal with these messes.

I believe (1 Nov 29)


I believe that when we hear stories from some people, we either dont believe it, dont want to believe it, think they may be exaggerating, or mistaken. This can then color how vividly they remember into the future. Stuff falls out of my brain all the time. I help remember by writing it down, occasionally re-reading what I wrote down. Different people help remember by different mechanisms. I believe there are certain crimes the police do not want the public reporting.

For example, we get spam, where often it is evident that the persons sending the spam are engaged in some kind of crime, which law enforcement has the power to do something about, but I believe that the police do not want to be receiving reports from millions of people about each instance of a bogus e-mail. There are many other constructive things people can do to combat cyber crime but most people apparently aid and abet the spammers and hackers by taking no action beyond seeking to block such attacks directly upon themselves. This is a behavioral culture, that can undermine teaching future generations of the importance of reporting alleged crime witnessing. I believe that, except for secret federal laws, ignorance of the law is no excuse. However, state legislatures are constantly passing new laws, without the news media or the governments doing a good job of informing the public of the changed legal climate. Many of the new laws make sense, but many do not.
Changes in the laws, I would like to see. For crimes against children, statute of limitations frozen until they turn age 21, then let it run. If someone reports something suspicious, and it turns out to be a false alarm, you do not charge the person doing the reporting, with any kind of false police report. You only charge someone if they said something which was both factually incorrect, and you can prove they knew it was incorrect, at the time.

Evolution of Evil Corruption (1 Nov 10)

I believe some things, where I may be in a minority.

Evil

flourishes when good people do nothing.266 Examples of this include: The Holocaust; Ethnic Cleansing; Child Abuse Sex Scandals. With natural evolution, the speed is inversely proportional to the size, life span, and complexity of the living organism. Microscopic life evolves on a time scale, where new diseases arrive every few years. For larger creatures, it can be millennia before a new creature is viable. We humans have created computer viruses, which can evolve
artificially. We have also created mediums through which ideas can evolve.

Evolution is both natural, and can be man directed, by honoring heroes as behavioral examples for future generations to emulate, and deriving wise systems of oversight and peer review, to promptly catch break-downs of standards, and do something constructive about them. We look back in history to see how ancestors behaved badly, their reasoning, why that reasoning is unacceptable today. That is an example of man directed evolution, where people used their minds to reason out that certain behavior was immoral, unethical, we can do better. Sometimes society improves, evolves so that on average, we are all better people. Sometimes it backslides,

devolves. I believe that in recent years, there has been this reverse movement, particularly in positions of leadership in politics, Wall Street, and some other types of institutions.

One reason is that Power corrupts, with unmitigated temptation. The more power, the more temptation, the greater risk of corruption.267 This is one reason why we constantly hear stories of corruption of political leaders, various celebrities. Our current society is doing a poor job of having systems to catch such failures in our behavior standards.

Bill Conlin, Philadelphia (2 Feb 13)

Police say nothing can be done because of statute of limitations. 2003 Several news media had the story, but declined to run if, for lack of independent corroboration. 2005 Bobby Davis contacts Syracuse University, whose investigation is unable to find corroboration. Nov 2011 Bobby Davis and another victim appear on ESPN to talk about what happened to them. Subsequently the police decide to investigate the charges, and lots more evidence comes out.

Jerry Sandusky, PSU celebrity (2 Feb 13)


Jerry Sandusky, now age 67 in 2011, played football at Penn State for 4 years, then coached there for 32 years. Sandusky became a famous celebrity because of his football career at Penn State.271 This meant he was often invited and welcome at various sports enthusiast locations, got lots of access to children. He formed a charity, allegedly to help boys. When he retired in 1999, the agreement gave him continued access to the football teams facilities at Penn State. All of these ingredients, the celebrity status, access to various places, the charity, were then tools for his alleged access to young boys for sexual abuse. This alleged behavior was conducted at a variety of sites, against children he got access to because of his celebrity status with a variety of organizations. See all through the time line, for information which has been coming out. A large number of people allegedly knew this was going on, and covered it up, because it was more important to the witnesses and accessories that the celebrity reputation be preserved,

When we look at the people identified so far, involved in this case, they are all men, except for the Attorney General. Sometimes the boys will be boys attitude contributes to the covering up of rape, sexual assault, bullying, and other illegal and immoral activities. The Sandusky case is Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Sandusky, MJ-49201-CR-6362011, Centre County, Pennsylvania, Magisterial District Court 49-2-01 (State College).272 Sandusky is facing forty charges involving the sexual abuse of children, all boys between about seven and twelve years old. He claims he is innocent of all charges.273 As the investigation adds info about particular incidents, numbering the victims, they are not in chronological sequence of incident, but as facts about them and allegations about incidents are uncovered.

Joe Amendola, attorney for Jerry Sandusky (1 Nov 10)


We have this case because: Boys have complained about a wide range of alleged inappropriate contact with Mr. Sandusky. Boys have testified to having witnessed Mr. Sandusky doing same inappropriate contact with other boys, that he also did with them. Adults have testified to witnessing a wide range of alleged inappropriate contact between Mr. Sandusky and young boys. Adults have testified to having been told of specific instances of Mr. Sandusky engaged in inappropriate contact with young boys, Theres conflicting testimony which can be explained by patterns of how guilty people behave.

Sandusky's attorney Joe Amendola has said his client, who left Penn State coaching in 1999, was shaken by the charges but knew they were coming. "He's maintained his innocence," Amendola said.274

Much of Sandusky's grooming (and some of the assaults) of his victims ages 8 to 15 occurred in Sandusky's own home, at family events, or at times and in ways that you'd think any observant family member -- or even anyone associated with him -- would have surely stopped herself to think, "Hmm, isn't that behavior a little strange?" And what was child protective services doing when Mr. and Mrs. Sandusky were adopting kids 276 left and right? Isnt there supposed to be home inspections, to find out if any kids are at risk?

Joe Paterno, PSU senior coach (1 Nov 12)


Nicknamed JoePa, Joe Paterno was senior coach for Penn State football, until he was fired Nov 9, 2011, at age 84. Joe played football 1946 to 1949, joining Penn State as an assistant football coach in 1950.
Paterno, who earned about $1 million annually from the school, had been head coach for 46 years, part of the Penn State staff for more than six decades, and his old-school values pervade every corner of the program.277 Pennsylvania state police commissioner Frank Noonan said Paterno fulfilled his legal requirement when he relayed to university administrators that a graduate assistant had seen Sandusky attacking a young boy in the team's locker room shower in 2002. But the commissioner also questioned whether Paterno had a moral responsibility to do more.278
Paterno's statement went on to say McQueary never told him of the "very specific events" in the report, which left open the colossal question as to how much Paterno needed to hear. Just put the words "man," "boy," and "shower" together, and most folks [should] dial 911 before the 279 sentence reaches its exclamation point.

Keith Olbermann on MSNBC said: "Paterno may have misunderstood the severity of
the crime. But, if somebody who worked for you told you that he witnessed somebody else who worked for you, molest a boy in your building, would you go to somebody else who was nominally your boss, or would you drag the witness to the police? Or at least, would you check back in the next few days or months or years, to find out what the hell had happened? 280 Nov 9, 2011: Joe Paterno was fired by PSU Board of Trustees. 281

Along with his job as head football coach at Penn State, Paterno may also lose a shot at the prestigious Presidential Medal of Freedom. Pennsylvania's U.S. Sens. Pat Toomey, a Republican, and Bob Casey, a Democrat, said Thursday they are rescinding their support for Paterno's nomination for the nation's highest civilian honor, citing recent events at the school.282

Tim still had that job when arrested in 2011, on charges of lying to the grand jury, and failing to report assault on a child, in contravention with Pennsylvanian law. Thru his attorney, Tim denies these charges. The Grand Jury finds that portions of Curley testimony are not credible. 283 The Grand Jury concluded that two separate employees of the university had reported criminal assault on a child on school property to him, there was a duty to report this to the proper authorities, and Curley failed to do so. Curley has taken a leave of absence while this distraction is resolved. On June 15, Curley was announced as the winner of the John L. Toner Award given by the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame. He was to receive it at an awards dinner Dec. 6 in New York. Nov 9, the foundation announced it will not be giving the award to Curley.284

Caroline Roberto, Attorney for Tim Curley (1 Nov 08)


We have this case because: different people have different stories to the grand jury and investigators; different people interpret the laws different ways.

According to Center Daily Times:285 Caroline Roberto, representing Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley, issued the following statement following his arraignment on charges of perjury and failure to report: Tim Curley is innocent of these charges. We will vigorously confront these challenges in court. Now I have three observations. First, as you heard in the courtroom, the duty report charge is a summary offense. Thats like a speeding ticket. Under the law, a duty to report didnt even apply to Tim Curley or to his situation at Penn State. Number two, even if it did apply to Tim Curley, the evidence will show he reported what he knew up the chain of command, just like others in this case did. Number three, the charge of perjury. You should all know that perjury is a prosecutors charge of last resort. They charge it when they cant prove the person did anything wrong.

In this case, the offense occurred in 2002, and theyre trying to charge Mr. Curley with perjury for something he said nine years later. It is a distraction in this case, the charge of perjury, and it is unconscionable that the AGs office would level such a weak case against a man of integrity like Mr. Curley. I will tell you, and you should know that this perjury charge is a red flag for all of you today that the charges against Mr. Curley are weak. After 18 months investigation, if this is all the AGs office could bring we are ready to go toe to toe with them in court. Were ready to fight this case, and were ready to win.

Gary Schultz. PSU VP (1 Nov 08)

The university police report to Schultz, whose testimony to the Grand Jury indicates great ignorance about what the police found out in the 1998 incident. The Grand Jury finds that portions of Shultz testimony are not credible.286 The Grand Jury concluded that two separate employees of the university had reported criminal assault on a child on school property to him, there was a duty to report this to the proper authorities, and Schultz failed to do so.

Thomas J. Farrell, attorney for Gary Schultz (1 Nov 08)


We have this case because: different people have different stories to the grand jury and investigators; different people interpret the laws different ways.

Pittsburgh lawyer Thomas J. Farrell, who represents Schultz, has said he will seek to have the reporting charge dismissed, because, to his reading, the mandated reporting rules only apply to people who come into direct contact with children. He also said the statute of limitations for the reporting charge is two years. The alleged abuse occurred in 2002.287

According to Center Daily Times:288 Thomas J. Farrell, the attorney representing Gary Schultz, issued this statement following Schultz's arraignment on charges of perjury and failure to report: Rather than follow the law, the AG has fabricated a fiction here. This child protection statute does not apply to our clients, number one.

And number two, they did what they are supposed to do under the statute. They reported these allegations to their boss, the president of Penn State University, as well as the executive director of the Second Mile. They did exactly what Mr. McQueary did, which was report to Joe Paterno, his boss. They did exactly what Mr. Paterno did, which is reported to Mr. Curley. Theres no reason they should be charged with this offense, a summary offense. Ill tell you whats going on here. The prosecution is [holding] it to the grand jury to manufacture a charge. Its a form of prosecutorial misconduct called a perjury trap. You bring someone into a grand jury to investigate something that cant be prosecuted, something that isnt a crime, and then you take that persons inconsistencies or inaccuracies, or failure to remember what happened nine years ago. Then you manufacture a charge out of it. Thats what the Attorney General has done to these men. These men are the best of men. Mr. Schultz was in charge of the Penn State police and over his career insisted that time and again they investigate misconduct, alleged misconduct by professors, by coaches, by star football players. It was all investigated thoroughly. Most importantly he told the truth. He told the truth, as did Mr. Curley. You folks may have seen Mr. Paternos statement. Mr. Paternos statement matches their statement. They were given a general allegation of inappropriate conduct. Thats what Mr. Paterno told them. Thats what Mr. Paterno told you folks yesterday. And thats what he testified to in the grand jury. Theyre innocent. He later added, addressed to the Penn State community: Its difficult because these are such good men. This will do nothing to their reputations.

"What happened here was 'grooming,' where these predators identify a child, become mentors ... then give them gifts, establish trust, initiate physical contact, which eventually leads to sexual contact," Noonan said.290

Tom Corbett Pa AG then Gov (1 Nov 11)


Mr. Tom Corbett, as state attorney general, had begun an investigation in 2009 into allegations that a former Penn State assistant football coach had abused young boys, and that university officials might have covered up the scandal.
Clinton County high school officials had reported charges to the local district attorney that Mr. Sandusky had molested a boy there, but, citing a conflict of interest, the prosecutor passed it on to the attorney generals office to investigate.

Corbett had convened a grand jury, and his prosecutors had taken testimony. Frank Noonan, at the time, was Mr. Corbetts chief investigator. But when Corbett ran for governor, and even after he took office, he was obligated to keep the investigation secret, even as he saw the university officials at the center of the investigation doing little to address the substance of the inquiry.
The only people Corbett could talk to about it were the few people he had brought with him from the attorney generals office; grand jury secrecy laws barred him from discussing it with outsiders, including university trustees he had appointed.291

Linda Kelly, Pa AG (1 Nov 07)

Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly292 begged victims to come forward, as authorities still do not know identity of some known about from some incidents.

Adults (1 Nov 13)


It bothers me that so many people are bothered about this only from the perspective that Penn State losing certain coaches could hurt the football teams win-loss scores. They dont seem to appreciate the enormity of damage to the lives of the abused children. Adults are supposed to behave like informed responsible citizens, to protect children and others in society, who are less able to protect themselves. If we witness something suspicious, or hear about something suspicious, we should do something about it. If a crime is in progress right now, we should call 911 in USA, or 999 in Europe, so the police know immediately about what we have witnessed, or have reasonable suspicion about. If the perpetrators are gone from the scene, we should report as soon as possible. Based on what we have learned from this collection of incidents, and other recent news, it is evident that our society needs an enhancement of the state-of-art of education on many levels.

is calling for increased education to prepare people who work with children to recognize and report suspected abuse.293 Most of the witnesses, and people who failed to report suspected abuse, were not working with children.
The National Child Protection Training Center.

There needs to be a Public Health campaign, to inform adults of our responsibilities to report crimes and suspicions of crimes, of what kinds, to what authorities. We need easy access to a digest of new laws and regulations, that can impact people by the nature of our lives. At the beginning of most every class in academia, at all levels, there needs to be a presentation by a representative of law enforcement or the judiciary on what activities are appropriate and what are inappropriate in the conduct of the students gathering info for their class. What may be downloaded from the Internet; where may photographs be taken, or drawings made, or audio recordings; what places in the public may not be used by the public; what actions are allowed for the police, but for no one else.

Recognizing Child Abuse (1 Nov 12)


Signs of sexual abuse
Be alert to behavioral changes in your child that could signal sexual abuse.294 They include: Changes in school performance Withdrawal from friends and teachers Reluctance to go home Signs of sleep deprivation Hints in conversations Concerns voiced by friends Dr. Nancy D. Kellogg295 Some parents teach their kids what touching is inappropriate, and what they should do when violated. Some parents do not. Some schools teach this. Some do not. By the time they address the topic, it may be too late.296 I remember pieces of my own education 50 years ago. It was all straight sex, missionary position. I remember sex ed in high school. They did not teach me anything I did not already know, other than the correct names for the body parts. I remember my Dad telling me where babies come from, and how a gentleman should treat a lady.

I remember first being told some of this stuff in the school yard of elementary school. The first time I did not believe it, thinking it was urban legend or science fiction. I remember being told how bad illegal drugs were, but never being told how you could tell what they looked like, smelled etc. It was like adult urban legend or science fiction. I was probably better off being ignorant, since I never developed serious bias against people whose values or behavior fell outside what I was taught from official and unofficial sources. Thus it is perfectly understandable to me that some of the young adult witnesses of Mr Sandusky alleged deviant behavior, would not have the foggiest notion what the heck was going on, and what to do about it. A big difference today, is that schools are teaching students to do what adults tell them to do, with serious consequences for disobedience.

Responsibility to Act (1 Nov 15)

Before you NEED to know how to call for help, make sure front of your phone book has phone #s you may need, in addition to 911, such as child protective services, poison control hot line. Witness a rape in progress: get help for victim as fast as possible. 297 If an incident is occurring in front of you, call 911. If a child tells you he or she is being abused, don't panic, don't act shocked. Make sure the child feels supported and protected. Say, "You did the right thing in telling me." Give the child the benefit of the doubt. Contact police first, they will investigate then decide when child protective service should enter the picture. Focus on the child's needs, not the reputation of the accused abuser. You might be the only person the child confided in. A lot can get lost in translation. More than one person can report abuse, and it's not uncommon to get multiple reports for one child. Each person can hold a piece to the puzzle.298 If the alleged molester is a member of the clergy, DO NOT report the abuse to church officials. If the alleged molester is a coach or teacher, DO NOT report the abuse to the school authorities. Some churches and organizations worry more about lawsuits and bad publicity than about kids, and sometimes the alleged molesters helpers are in positions of authority within the institution, able to block investigations. Just call the police. If someone else says they witnessed a rape: tell them to get off phone with you, call police;

Responsibility to Report and Laws make sense (1 Nov 10)


Which individuals had an obligation to report the situation to police or child protective services? It is in dispute what the law calls for. It seems evident, to much of the general public, that if people are in any doubt, they ought to report. That is, if you do not know if you have this obligation or not, then you should report because of the seriousness of impact on the children, and risk of harm to more children. Police have access to all sorts of experts who can determine what happened, use DNA and fingerprints to identify the boys, clear the reputations of suspects if falsely accused. Also, there is the issue of when this Pa law was actually passed. Was it on the books at the time of the 2000 Janitor witnessing? Laws, to address child abuse, need to be amended, to remove ambiguities. 1. Witnesses should be asked BOTH to report to authorities AND up the organization chain of command.

The head of the organization is ultimately responsible for seeing that a report is made, may delegate that to a particular person or department. 3. Whistle blower protection. Institutions should be banned for firing people because they reported a crime.302 4. Any time duration should be reasonable, not penalizing people because 911 or other phone # puts them on hold, or this is outside the business hours of children services, or because of local challenges delaying reports. Whats important is the reports be made as soon as practical 5. What types of incidents, participants, etc. should be reported, should be clarified.

The current Pennsylvania law is damn confusing to many professionals. 303

Some Professions report, others not qualified (1 Nov 13)


Some laws only call for certain professions to report suspected abuse, such as medical workers. People in those professions may be better qualified to judge likelihood of the crime, but if in doubt we all should report.

Type of Institution covered, others not (1 Nov 13)


Some laws imply scenarios, such as the work place, while excluding other places like restaurants and shopping centers. Some laws only apply to cases of suspected abuse at certain kinds of institutions, such as colleges which receive federal funds, not making it clear it student loans included, exempting those on other funds sources, and academia other than colleges such as day care and elementary schools.

Workplace report, outside not get involved (1 Nov 13)


Some laws implies abuse by employees, excluding volunteers, parents and strangers. One interpretation is that under Pa law, it is only required if what is witnessed is internal to the work place. For example, a museum employee witnesses a child customer being molested by an adult customer of the museum. No need to report because neither child nor adult are employees of the museum. Under this theory, someone was required to report, because of Sanduskys lifetime status with the university. But had it been a stranger visitor, to the campus, raping some other visitor on campus, then no legal obligation to call the police, just a moral one. Or in cases of bullying, student on student, no
obligation for teacher witnesses to report, because neither bully nor victim are employees of the school.

This area of confusion is not getting addressed in most of the debate, rather proposals for new laws focus on whether the witness should bypass employer and report directly to police, or whether the top management of institution have the responsibility to decide whether to get the police involved.

Witnesses tell chain of command which tells police (1 Nov 13)


One interpretation is that ordinary employees report these things to their

bosses, or to a particular department of the organization, such as Human Resources.


As long as you tell the boss, you're covered, under the law.

The administration knows what officialdom needs to be notified for what kinds of events, and is supposed to do so promptly. It seems to me that the grand jury, and current investigation, has this interpretation. That is why Curley and Schultz were arrested, why Spanier is still under suspicion. The original witness is not in trouble, under the law, because he was not authorized to make decisions on behalf of the institution, he was a worker bee, like the janitors. If this law was on the books in 2000, then under this interpretation, Jay Witherite had an obligation to report up the chain of command, what the two janitors had reported to him.

Witnesses tell police irrespective of organization (1 Nov 13)


Another interpretation is that the actual witnesses are supposed to go to the police. It seems to me that the attorneys for accused, other than for Sandusky, are using this interpretation. According to the states Child Protective Services Law, A report is required when a person, who in the course of employment, occupation or practice of a profession, comes into contact with children, has reasonable cause to suspect, on the basis of medical, professional or other training and experience, that a child is a victim of child abuse. This means, says a social worker, that any teacher, staff, administrator, grad assistant or coach (and others who in their routine workday come into contact with children) are mandated to report any and all suspected child abuse to the Department of Public Welfare.304 But depending on some other people, they are not mandated to report directly, that it is legitimate and appropriate to report through their bosses, that some higher up in the

If this law was on the books in 2000, then under this interpretation, the two janitor witnesses both had independent obligations to report this directly to the authorities, not the campus authorities, but the real police, and real children protective services.

Custodians of Childrens Future (1 Nov 12)


Think of the world our parents generation inherited. They inherited a country of boundless economic prosperity and the highest admiration overseas, produced by the hands of their mothers and fathers. They were safe. For most, they were endowed opportunities to succeed, to prosper, and build on their parents work. For those of us in our 20s and early 30s, this is not the world we are inheriting.305 Our parents generation has balked at the tough decisions required to preserve our countrys sacred entitlements, leaving us to clean up the mess. They let the infrastructure built with their fathers hands crumble like a stale cookie. They downgraded our nations credit rating. They seem content to hand us a debt exceeding the size of our entire economy, rather than brave a fight against the fortunate and entrenched interests on K Street and Wall Street. This failure of a generation is as true in the halls of Congress as it is at Penn State. Perhaps the most vivid illustration this week of our leaderless culture came with the riots in State College that followed Paternos dismissal. The display resembled Lord of the Flies. Without revered figures from the older generation to lead them, thousands of students at one of the countrys best state universities acted like children home alone.

2000 PSU Janitor witnesses (1 Nov 08)


2000 Fall, A janitor James Jim Calhoun witnesses Mr. Sandusky in the shower at the PSU football complex with Victim # 8, whose identity is still unknown. The boy was pinned against the wall while Mr. Sandusky performed a sex act on him. From what I have read so far, the sequence of who learned what is unclear, but it is evident that from the info provided to Jay Witherite by the two witnesses, he knew it was Mr. Sandusky who had been showering with some young boy, and that there had been inappropriate contact. Calhoun fled the scene in panic, but immediately tells other janitorial staff and his boss Jay Witherite, what he had witnessed. His supervisor tells him how to make an official report. Such a report is never made; there is discussion among janitorial staff of concern about their

jobs if they report such incidents.306 Today, Jim suffers from mental disease and cannot testify, but multiple people are able to testify what he told them at the time of the incident. This 2000 Fall incident was also witnessed by janitor Ronald Petrotsky, who described the boy as aged 11 to 13, also reported to the same boss, Jay Witherite, what he witnessed. Petrotsky only witnessed that Sandusky was naked in the shower with a young boy. He did not witness the sex acts performed earlier, that Calhoun witnessed. This is the same shower, where the graduate coaching assistant witnessed the same type of activity 2 years later.

2002 PSU story via Coach Assist (1 Nov 08)


This story is reminiscent of how universities and colleges used to treat rape of women students for decades, if not centuries. Total denial of support for the victims, protect the accused men at all costs. But it is far from clear in how much graphic detail the story was repeated up channels. It is often human nature for people to share as much detail as they know, but there is both the element of nave individuals having difficulty putting some details into the proper words, and judgment calls how much information should be reported to a boss in the work place. Add to that, this happened early in 2002, then the grand jury asked about it late in 2010 and early 2011. The direct witness was a young man. The others are of an age that a lot falls out of our brains. The news media believes this person to be Mike McQueary, now the team's wide receiver coach and recruiting coordinator, although he has not been named by the legal documents.307 At the time, he was 28 years old. In 2002, according to the findings (pdf) of a grand jury in Pennsylvania, a graduate coaching assistant came to Paternos home on a Saturday morning. He told Paterno that he had seen Jerry Sandusky, Penn States former defensive cordinator, raping a naked boy in the football locker rooms shower, at approx 9.30 pm the Lasch Football Building on the University Park campus.308 The boy looked to be ten years old. Sandusky had retired, but had the status of an emeritus professor, an office in the facility, and his own keys to the locker room. 309

The witness was distraught at what he had witnessed. He went to his office, phoned his father for guidance, John McQueary. Next morning, Mike phoned Paterno at home, then went to visit him, accompanied by his father, to report what he had witnessed. Paterno in turn, called his boss, invited him to his home, to pass on the information. On Sunday, according to Paterno, he briefed the athletic director, Tim Curley, about the conversation with the assistantexactly what he told him is in some dispute. The authorities now say that Paterno did exactly the right thing, he promptly reported up the chain of command.310 Sports fans apparently expect more. They think he should have known what was going on, in the area he was in charge of.

PSU 2002 investigates (1 Nov 10)

In contemporary 2011 public statements, Parerno shares Curley and Schulttz statements that they dont remember the shocking same details as the witness told the grand jury.311 But at the time, after being briefed by the witness and his father, he knew it was serious enough to call his boss, and brief him, that weekend.312 Also, under oath to the grand jury, he shared what he remembered. He said he told Curley that Sandusky had been seen fondling or doing something of a sexual nature, with a boy in the showers. A week and a half after the incident, the graduate assistant was asked to a meeting with Curley and Gary Schultz, a university vice-president. The graduate assistant testified that he told them that he had witnessed what he believed to be Sandusky having anal sex with a boy. They tell the grand jury a rather different story. A couple of weeks later, athletic director Curley let the graduate assistant know that theyd said something to people at a foundation Sandusky supported, The Second Mile, which was meant to benefit boys in difficult situations (this is how he seems to have found his alleged victims). In grand jury testimony, Curly identifies Dr. Jack Raykovitz, Executive Director of Second Mile, as who specifically was told, and fleshed out other details which he had only summarized to the graduate assistant. In testimony by different people, theres conflicting stories about what meetings were held, who was told what, who was at which meetings. Since the 2002 events were being testified to in 2010, memories can get faded. 313 We have no idea how often this kind of story has to be dealt with by University administration officials, so it is reasonable that one incident can have details falling from their recollection. Just as the Grand Jury has to deal with whos testimony is most believable, University administration had a similar task.

Mr. Curley and Mr. Schultz said PSU President Graham Spanier was told that an incident had occurred in the shower but was not given the full details initially reported by Mr. McQueary.314

PSU 2002 consequences (1 Nov 11)


Curley also allegedly said that the university was taking away Sanduskys locker-room keys. And that was pretty much all.315 There had been no effort to identify the victim, notify police, or child protective services, although some University administration testimony claims to the contrary. The grand jury subpoenaed: local and state records of child protective services; university police. They found no report of the 2002 incident had been made to them. Penn State officials never reported an eyewitness accountnot some Doubt-like insinuationto any child-protection officials. That was, as the grand jury notes, in contravention of Pennsylvania law. Curley and Schultz were indicted for that omission, and also for allegedly lying to the grand jury. The university had allegedly issued a number of unenforceable commands upon Sandusky. The Second Mile had allegedly restricted Sandusky access to children.
University officials told Sandusky that he couldnt keep bringing boys from his charity onto the main Penn State campus, into the football facilities, according to the grand jury findings. They did not tell him to stop doing to those boys what is alleged. Precise details of who knew what, still in dispute.

Just stop doing it here, on the main campus. However, for the next six years, Sandusky brought boys to events on other campuses of Penn State.316 Also, Sandusky was not banned from main campus, just from bringing kids from his charity to the football facilities to do what he was alleged to be doing with boys, there. Fair and Balanced Fox News reports Sandusky was seen on the main campus as recently as the week before the story broke.317

Sandusky Lawyer Discovery (1 Nov 15)

The grand jury report says the boy involved in the 2002 case had not been identified. Sanduskys Lawyer says that boy has now been identified, and the boy says nothing happened.318 But we have no way of knowing how many boys involved in 2002. Maybe something happened with one of the others. Proving a negative is always a challenge.

Negative PR Fallout (1 Nov 09)

While an investigation is in progress, people are sometimes instructed not to speak with the news media about their testimony, so as not to muddy the waters, confuse the story. I am sure McQuery will be called upon to testify in up-coming trials, unless there is plea bargaining, which does not yet seem likely. Thus he should NOT be speaking with the media. But instead of saying that, there is this game of PR which backfires. As the story broke Nov 2011, McQueary's father told reporters his son could not be reached for
comment because he was on a recruiting trip. As in talking to families? The faculty doesn't deserve this. The researchers who this very week announced progress in preventing kidney failure don't deserve this. Neither do the 80,000 students or the 550,000 living alumni, including a nationwide high of 22,000 in Allegheny County.

McQuery story evolves (1 Nov 15)


Penn State receivers coach Mike McQueary - starkly contradicting the grand jury report that outlines the sex-abuse case against Jerry Sandusky - says in an email to a friend that he stopped the alleged child 319 molester when he saw Sandusky rape a boy in 2002, and then discussed the assault with police. McQueary wrote in the email that he stopped the rape and later did have discussions with police and the official (at the university) in charge of police.

Family Closure (1 Nov 11)


Some members of some families are speaking out.320 The news media is being very careful not to identify the families. Victim # 1 was the first to be believed, to the point that serious judicial action would be taken. His mother was proud of him when he said, I just dont want this to happen to
anybody else.
