Nittany Nightmare Continues Past Sandusky: Former President Spanier Charged- NEW Charges for Curley and Schultz Filed

Happy Valley- PA On the heels of convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky’s transfer to his new home,  what most predicted would follow- has.

 

 

 

Former Penn State President Graham Spanier,  fired by the Penn State Board of Trust the same day as legendary late-Nittany Lions Coach Joe Paterno, is facing serious charges today filed by Sandusky’s prosecutors.

Spanier is facing counts of obstruction of justice,  perjury, conspiracy, endangering the welfare of children and failure to report allegations of child abuse.

Tim Curley and Gary Schultz,  who were facing perjury and charges based on “non-reporting”,  are now facing all five similar charges as Spanier-  additional filings occurred simultaneously.

Linda L. Kelly stated the men “used their positions to conceal and cover up for years the activities of a known child predator,” on Thursday following the announcement.

    A jury convicted Graham Spanier of child endangerment and acquitted him on two other counts related to the Jerry Sandusky child-molesting scandal.

    @JJ imo Sloane was then unstable.
    However even the unstable can be truthful sources.
    btw if he “informed” you unsolicited, imo he also wrote
    others.

    @jJ/PA, wrt “The implication is that Gricar talked to
    somebody (plural) at PSU in 1998 about Sandusky
    getting “help with the problem.”

    Smart thinking. I do wonder what I’d do
    in Gricar’s shoes, JS had not yet retired, so
    calling the psu pres or ad or coach was far more
    dicey and up front than calling the Second Mike Dir or more likely politically
    its head of Board. In RG’s shoes, I’d have called 2nd Mile only as calling
    Univ would have fatally ended his career.
    I suspect 2nd Mile met a
    JS who was help resistant, so a 2nd Board member
    alerted JPa to retire him in 99.

    btw the 2nd Mile Dir & wife exec have gotten off entirely when imo
    they were psychologist experts they said and were paid for,
    and imo most culpable to supervise happenings to kids in their care.
    political prosecutions, and nonprosecutions, imo.

  5. Rose says:

    url above
    “Mr. Schultz and Mr. Curley, who pleaded guilty last week to one misdemeanor charge each, testified for the prosecution.”
    you think?
    Spanier charged with a felony,
    jury
    reduced to a misdemeanor.

    imo State initially overcharged.

  6. As was proper,imo.
    This was a man concerned with liability, not a standard of care or reporting requirement. My hat is off to the prosecutors on this one. If I hear one more person try to leverage the argument that just because SaNdusky was in the shower naked with a child it was not necessarily sexual I am going to throw something at that person. How about the fact that victims would have been spared had THEY acted? Lastly, I still feel strongly The 2nd mile got a very undeserved pass here.

  7. I would offer that at the time the understanding and emphasis on pedophilia among le and health/lsw/psych was very different than it is today (obvs).
    I do wonder if that sole report reached Gricar’s desk .
