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.

    Lindsay was a very active prosecutor, going after local officials in the 1970′s, but since that time he has been largely limited to Butler County.

    This caught my eye as I was perusing online headlines. Thought I’d post it here:

    A claim that Paterno knew about a 1976 incident has come out from court:

    if one believes this 62 yo (I do), one understands Joe’s end of career hand off of McQuerry to his athletic director:

    no way anyone associated with PSU football staff &
    2nd Mile hadn’t heard of JS’s predilections, imo. Why
    is Dottie defending him?

    Compliant Victim, self and public denial. Line forms around the block of those that know her personally that do not believe she will ever admit she so much as had a doubt of the charges.

    I would question how the victim in the 1971 case could be sure that it was Paterno on the other end of the phone.

    In the Paterno 3 civil suit, the judge has ordered discovery about those cases mentioned in the Glazer opinion. The 1971 case is not included.

    Shutt’s case in settlement.
    you kniw the one where she pleaded she had no managerial duties and thus deserved OT, while her LinkedIn said precisely the opposite?
    Dick’s has lazy litigation attorneys imo.

    Pres becomes Chancellor & tenured faculty.
    Football coach summarily fired.
    AD on probation.
    I think if Fina had not filed charges against the PSU 3, and the Board had retained Spanier as Chancellor,
    a lot of PSU’s troubles would be gone by now. Firing the coach is standard where sexual transgressions
    occur among his staff.

    I heard through the grapevine Robert Mellow has a “tell all” book coming out this month.

  12. Rose says:

    Steve, he has so many legal bills, and no pension.
    Idk why he’d take a felony plea deal, but he must have been
    too broke to hire Freeh on defense.

    how self-serving of Courtney 15 yrs later
    http://www.pennlive.com/news/2016/06/mcqueary_case_filing_adds_a_de.html
    any lawyer worth his salt woukd’ve done a memo to file if not to client
    outlining facts presented and legal advice dispensed w/basis.
    I do not believe Courtney w/out such a contemporaneous writing.

    Liar. I said it. If you recall Rose- I sought him out specifically when reading his advice RE The Second Mile. Wendell Courtney is FOS.
    You are 100% correct. Frankly- I do not know why a lawyer’s “phone testimony”, when it cannot be confirmed via a written document or communication, is even permissible any longer. Client agreements (response to retainer letters “on trend” require all communication to be in a written form) yet old school lawyers can still be of the mind to respond to an email with… are you free for a phone conference?” No thank you to working for any of those- with all due respect.

    Courtney was not the one who brought that out, however. His billing records were found by Freeh. He was basically forced to testify. He wasn’t volunteering anything.

    Respectfully JJ- at the end of the day I suspect that will be my very issue with Mr. Courtney. In my view, TSM has absolutely escaped a level of scrutiny that should have been applied to ANY organization where it’s child recipients were victimized- and they were. It has just been somewhat of an unspoken “fact” in this matter.
