In light of the criminal charges have been filed against former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky as the result of a grand jury investigation into multiple reports of the child sexual abuse, CALCASA is sharing media talking points that were developed by the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape.
This case also includes perjury charges facing recently resigned Athletic Director Timothy Curley and Senior Vice President for Finance and Business Gary C. Schultz. A grand jury indicted Sandusky, who had coached under Joe Paterno, with 40 counts of child molestation. The indictment states that current assistant coach and then-graduate student Mike McQueary in 2002 witnessed Sandusky assaulting a 10-year-old boy in the Penn State shower. He reported the incident to Paterno, who reportedly told Curley. Allegedly, Curley and Schultz failed to tell the police and also lied to the grand jury that McQueary hadn’t told them about the incident.
The Penn State University Board of Trustees have formed a committee of faculty, students, board members and community members who will continue to deal with the issue.
