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.

    Lunsford’s enemy list might include Raykovitz.

    “Not one thing was said to us,” said Bradley P. Lunsford, a Centre County judge who served on the Second Mile board between 2001 and 2005. “Not a damn thing.” –

    If more information had been given to board members, they “would have asked the follow-up question: Why? You don’t know? Who knows? Who can we talk to? Has this been reported to the police?” Lunsford said. “I guarantee you there would have been a competition among all those people to be the first to ask the question, `Why is he not allowed on campus?’”

    Lunsford and four other former board members at The Second Mile point the finger at Jack Raykovitz, a close friend of Sandusky’s who ran the charity until resigning following the former coach’s Nov. 5 arrest. –

    In my view Raykovitz was never held accountable for the fact *he claimed*, as the leader of the organization that acted as a grooming pool for that monster- that he had no knowledge of Sandusky’s actions. I will never buy that.

    In yet another twist, a player in the Penn State fallout of the Sandusky scandal is closely tied to the Lee case as well. PSU Trustee Anne Riley, who sat on the Board during the firing of Joe Paterno and Graham Spanier, has close connections with Lee. You will recall that Riley “voted” to fire Paterno, despite the fact that Paterno and his wife Sue did everything they could to save her dad’s life when he had collapsed in their kitchen (and later died), as detailed in Jay Paterno’s book “Paterno Legacy: Enduring Lessons from the Life and Death of My Father”. Mrs. Riley also just happened to sit on two local Boards with Mr Lee; the Boalsburg Heritage Museum Board and the Mount Nittany Conservacy Board. Not only did Mrs. Riley sit on multiple boards with Mr. Lee but a local source who attended State College Area High School where Riley taught for 30 years says that Riley brought Mr. Lee into the school and introduced him as her boyfriend.

    Anne Riley’s father was Ridge Riley author of a Penn State football book and chronicled the team for decades.

    She was one who Jay Paterno singled out in his book.

    Wonder when she was “dating” Lee?

    Sorry to be kinda O/T, but I am fascinated. The mansion FB link doesn’t work anymore, but Anne Riley’s mother’s 80th B’day was at the mansion and Paterno was in attendance. FWIW, Anne Riley is the most solid link I have seen between Lee and Penn State.

    Just something to think about. I wonder if Freeh ever asked Anne about Lee? We will find out. And everything I just said I know firsthand.

    It is beyond the pale that she would have “missed” a similar story about a prominent employee at a place she was supposed to be managing.

    Chris was charged in 2005. Anne, who had Chris in to her 9th grade English class to recruit docents for the museum, would know this.

    Furthermore, You have to believe Anne was not more in tune with sexual assault allegations even though her ex boyfriend was Chris Lee.
