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.

    @JJ in Phila. wrt “Corbett would not have had any involvement in the 2005 Lee case, and LE had just started the investigation of Lee when RFG disappeared”
    Sorry for the confusion, I meant Verbal Lee.

    I was suggesting political pressure down the Republican network
    (Corbett to Grine to DA) say to file or not file charges,
    or about something else like sentence or bail recommendations,
    could have troubled Gricar between Jan-Apr 2005. It needn’t be a matter the
    public knows about. If Gricar came under pressure to not file charges,
    and complied, who would know?

    An updated Linkedin from Shutt….changed subsequent to end-January 2015. https://www.linkedin.com/pub/michelle-shutt/95/586/632?trk=pub-pbmap

    Yes, her degree was from Everest. And the magna cum laude formerly on the resume is deleted. Did someone check that claim out & question its veracity?
    If she is in the position of the Huff Post articl grad in the link above, she needs to score big on the class action lawsuit v Dicks, or say another suit, an as yet unfiled tort or defamation suit.
    Another way to stave off student lians is to reenroll in school. Fortunately she found another on line nonprofit.

    “Everest University’s parent company, Corinthian Colleges, is currently being sued by the state of California for “false and predatory advertising, intentional misrepresentations to students, securities fraud and unlawful use of military seals in advertisements.”[1][2]
    “According to (California Attorney General) Harris’ complaint, CCI’s predatory marketing efforts specifically target vulnerable, low-income job seekers and single parents who have annual incomes near the federal poverty line. In internal company documents obtained by the Department of Justice, CCI describes its target demographic as “isolated,” “impatient,” individuals with “low self-esteem,” who have “few people in their lives who care about them” and who are “stuck” and “unable to see and plan well for future.”

    enrolled apparently Jan 2015 in another for profit online Univ.:

    a small Clinton IA school turned into a mega for profit online biz in Calif

    Moving right along, I hope Blink’s efiles have a screenshot of tge Jan Linked in (magna cum laude).

    Further observations:
    In Jan her Linkedin showed her currently employed in the fancy sounding job at Restek. This Linkedin uodates that job ended last October. At the same time, her proofreading skills are poor because hercSummaey belabors that she is currently employed at Restek.

    Also, that January AND this Linkedin do not show her employed by the Masorti law firm. He has claimed her as his employee in various sound bites. It appears to be contract, as needed, labor. If it were substantial, this detailed resume would mention his firm since she rewote it after Jan 2015 wrt several substantial additions & deletions
    —-
    In order to work in the criminal justice, forensics field, she will have to ensure SPM is tried and convicted, or her reputation in LE in Centre County won’t be worth toilet paper.

    And one wonders if SPM’s reference of her after separation in Jan 2014 was so poor that SPM had to be discredited by an ambitious mother of 3 with huge loans & not a cent to spare most likely.

    I will say that her contract status with Masorti is likely covered under a confidentiality clause and she may not use that as her employer on Linked In. That is common- as you know, my practice’s clients are mostly lawyers and it is pretty standard. In most contracts- I am also only permitted to provide a case abstract reference on my CV that is approved beforehand.

    skim-reading bittany-net Sandusky.
    You mean that fine Republican Judge, David Grine, was a
    Director of Second Mile, AND overruled the local juvenile
    caseworker & a mother’s parental rights to send
    Matt to the voracious Jerry? What a conflict of interest.
    Should have reassigned that case. And could D Grine also be one of the political
    pressure situations not to file charges (against JS) that Gricar obliquely
    referred to. Wonder what the political pressure was in 2004-2005, and if it came from Judge Grine.
    And I wonder if Judge Jonathan is a man made in his father’s image.

    finally, some original reporting:
    http://www.statecollege.com/news/local-news/taxpayers-could-foot-big-legal-bills-from-fight-over-parks-miller-forgery-allegations,1462958/
    Garrett went to Boyde for info on legal expenditures to date.
    Bernie got his fellow rugby coach a retirement plan imo. Ridiculoys to
    use a contingency fund for this purpose.

    Someone needs to go for County coffer reimbursement on the Fetterhoff rep
    against the fools who didn’t write a legal insurance coverage requirement into Glantz’
    County solicitor contract or in the alternative didn’t pay his ins coverage directly.

  5. Rose says:

    Well, for a “confidentiality agreement,” he’s pretty loose lipped.
    He is also misleading when he refers to her as his “employee.”

    Yep. I could be wrong as well- or he may not understand the implications of calling a contractor an employee LOL

    @Rose, Freeh left the FBI in 2001. While Corbett was Acting AG in the 1990′s Freeh was at the FBI. Verbal Lee was charged by the AG’s Office; the Centre County DA’s Office never had the case.

    Dec 5–Kistler orders Lunsford off the criminal bench
    http://www.wjactv.com/news/features/top-stories/stories/judge-centre-county-removed-bench-time-being-4446.shtml?wap=0

    that’s rather dramatic. you’d think a collegial agreement would work out privately, with Lunsford recusing himself.
    Imo Kistler did this adversarially rather than collegialky.

    Note the date. After Kistler & Corman agree Wolf will nominate him to SC post Wolf’s swearingin. I infer this order was directed at Lunsford not succeeding him as Sr Admin Judge, but Ruest, at a time he thot the Supreme Court was sewn up

    Masorti, out of the entire CC defense bar, is the primary media interviewee at the time about Kistler’s order , and interjects illicit fraternization with SPM in early December, Masorti:
    http://www.wearecentralpa.com/story/d/story/centre-county-judge-reassigned/41688/DGoPLnPWnkG_PQDFw6PSCQ

    Did this early Dec press prompt Shutt to contact Masorti and offer her observations?

    on Jan 20, Masorti is once again wjac tv’s no 1 anti SPM soundbite.
    http://www.wjactv.com/news/features/top-stories/stories/centre-countys-district-attorney-accused-forgery-4803.shtml?wap=0

    Masorti has been out of control a long time

    I looked up a prominent poster displaying animus to SPM on CIOC.
    It seems what she termed a spurious stalking oder led her to be fired from the police dept, risk homelessness, be jobless, and so on. Of course she’d blame the DA. Maybe she should sign up for Ashford too.

  9. Rose says:

    Masorti’s CIOC-Facebook Admin must be reading here. Why?
    He’s locked off Comments unless one signs into facebook (was previously open).
    Must not want criminal histories of Commenters commented on.

  10. J. J. in Phila (the real one) says:

    @Rose, I am not sure that David Grine was on the TSM Board at the time he ruled on the Matt Sandusky issue. That case was in the mid-1990′s, IIRC.

  11. Steve says:

    Why does it matter if Judge David Grine was on TSM board at the time? Improper is improper. He was certainly well versed in their operation.

    Johnathan Grine dated and then married one of this students from the class he taught. IShe is his second wife.

    SPM’s emergency petition denied by the Supreme Court: http://www.centredaily.com/2015/03/02/4629710/supreme-court-rejects-parks-miller.html

    I don’t know about Jonathan Grine’s marital status.

    David Grine made the ruling in the 1990′s. If he wasn’t on the TSM board at that point, then there was no conflict.

  13. Rose says:

    @JJ in Phila. wrt CDT. I don’t know how you tolerate it, but you have been most apt in public education.
    I would have walked. The Chinese term “running dogs” comes to mind. It is interesting your verbal dance partner shares a surname with Liz, the 1/20 BoC public input speaker Backing up Bernie. Have hoped she was not our erudite & charming Lizzie.

    Masorti (or his ally) puffs a Comment I felt written by someone subjected to criminal justice who apparently at the time of the Comment writing needed a valium or a toke. The best thing that Commenter can do for himself is give up his grudge against the DA, & get a life by moving on. I am shocked Gricar hired him, much less befriended or relied on him. In retrospect, was Calif his only criminal contact? Could he have been blackmailed by PA criminal elements?

    @JJ in Phila. Your dialogue with The Grove .
    Local attorney, law clerk to Ruest, imo gets a 78-82%
    grade on hus effort.

  16. J. J. in Phila (the real one) says:

    Matt Grove apparently had a relative that was prosecuted by SPM. I do like Miller’s blog and his analysis.

    “S Sloan: the commissioners realize they need to get a JUDGE TO ORDER THE SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO HANDLE THE INVESTIGATION AND POTENTIAL PROSECUTION,” http://www.centredaily.com/2015/03/02/4629710/supreme-court-rejects-parks-miller.html

    I wonder if Kistler’s compatriots, ie Corman &/or 2 BoCs, or Glantz,
    realized Kistler needed to remain on the CC bench for this very reason.
    Supplies motive for email release.

    In a very broad statement having spent enough snowbound hours I wish to throw things, so instead I spent thesis hours and painted my study complete with whatever paint fumes do to one’s brain glucose- Sometimes I think there is such a political master plan on the scale of deepthroat or Lewinsky ( wait- yes, it is fumefunnery disorder- I just checked the DSM-Never) Deepthroat and Lewinsky in the same sentence- did I just fume-think that?

    I digress.

    Sometimes I consider each player has such a tactile position with appropriate agenda and other times I picture all of them as children whipping sand in each others eyes at close range. Not a shining time for me to be a resident of PA in my first year from NJ- down a few justices, the commonwealth’s capital barristers clammering for position after Wolf’s win. It’s a mess.
