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.

    verbal’s substitute defense atty J Stover looks like a formidable,
    experienced muni solicitor, worthy of being Glantz’ successor.

    imo no Ganim, who I’ve been watching on the trail of the Adirondack escapees.

    “Mike Madeira is not an idiot. He is an intelligent person; he knows how to kick the dirt where it needs to be kicked to keep things covered.”

    I wonder what he meant by this statement?

  4. Rose says:

    @Steve. His knowledge base indicates
    what he referred to was not local Centre County
    doings generally
    and was related to drug cases.

  5. Rose says:

    iirc drug cases at the State level was his area of responsibility before becoming DA.

  6. Rose says:

    suggests Gricar’s death was a
    hit by a drug-based criminal enterprise.

  7. Steve says:

    Thanks Rose. I was just wondering why he would know Maderia is good at keeping things covered.

    Exactly. The Madeira that went from US ADA to DA to Home Depot to suspended to voluntarily giving up his law license to working for PSU. Whose wife is a bio sis of one of Sandusky’s adopted sons.

    Ah, I knew what you meant, Steve. I still think it has to do with drugs & not Sandusky or Lee.
    Because that was Verbal’s own context. I was doing a time line last nite. Don’t quite remember it, but Gricar
    was doing some drug investigations of higher level persons prior to disappearing, Verbal being only 1 of his roll-ups.
    Verbal arrestedJan 05. Gricar off in Apr 05. Madiera following Gricar did do deug arrests, but it was street level sellors, iirc mostly students. He did a newspaper interview saying then you get the street levels to id higher ups in the sales chain & it takes 6 months. But I didn’t see, before I stopped reading, anyone higher up these student & street arrests led to. So that’s what I thought kicking dirt was. He got press for drug arrests, but they were negligble street level compared to Gricar’s source targets. But no one paid any attention to quality as long as the paper said “drug arrest.” One would think he was on the take, or had been threatened with Gricar’s fate, or feared it.

    And imo he is doing this for all the DAs and judges of Pennsylvania who may have renegade, narcissistic, politicized County administrators with malignant motives in an election year.
    These are runaway County Commissioners who have governance deficits, and as Lunsford recently said in his own reelection interview, a “compromised” solicitor, resulting in terrible legal advice .

    Maierhofer has forgotten her client employer, the insurance company. She should have sent a letter to the insured, the County, after Kurtz’ first Order outlining exactly how to comply. Then when Boyde/Glantz/the 3some violated her legal written directions, the insurance company would be off the hook for further coverage in this matter.

    @Rose, Madeira and Assistant PA AG and was the original prosecutor for Lee. Gricar, and the Centre county DA’s Office, was not involved in the prosecution.

  12. Rose says:

    It seems to me that Craig Staudemeier representing Centre County (Commissioners) to the tune so far of $54,000 (altho some of that was perhaps Glantz’ own devoted lawyer), is a conflict of interest. Here, in early 2014 Craig represented that one-man show who calls himself PFUR until Simon ran out of $ and pulled the plug on RTK litigation during the appellate phase.
    http://www.paunionreform.org/PublicRecordsLawsuit/DistrictAttorney/District%20Attorney%20Marsico%20letter%20as%20mailed%205-14-14.pdf
    And Simon PFUR is one of the RTK litigants with C Cty. Apparently he and Craig found a way for the County to pay the bill, it seems. The Commissioners are fools imo.

  13. Rose says:

    I just remembered Craig is the person who gave Glantz and Boyde the first advice on how to structure the reply (with redacted financial records) to the very first request for Lunsford’s phone records, resulting in spm’s suit. Glantz & Boyde said so at the first BoC meeting after the first suit. That advice would have been dished in early fall 2014 right after Simon/pfur pulled the plug on his appellate case due to lack of funds. Other suckers were found, but it wasn’t the many newspaper clients Craig represents. Wonder how the Court will handke those depositions (Craig, Boyde, Glantz) because at that consuktative juncture, Craig wasn’t retained nor paid by the County. He would run it thru his nonprofit rtk lobbying org. Anyway I now realize what Lunsford recerred to in the matter of “compromised legal advice,” not Glantz-Cantorna, but Craig-Simon/pfur, and the latter is now trying to lead the cabal of defense attorneys.
    Animal Farm redux.

    TY JJinPhila. If Madiera was the original Lee prosecutor while with the State, and it was a State prosecution,
    then I count State citizens blessed Madiera moved over to the DA job, enabling a successor prosecutor to stop
    the dirt kicking & get somewhere. That fact makes me more sure Lee was referring to Madiera in a drug prosecution
    context.

    Grine and Gillette-Warker are both making similar arguments to Parks Miller regarding RTK suit. http://www.statecollege.com/news/local-news/judges-reload-and-fire-new-volley-in-right-to-know-dispute,1464597/

    I think what Craig S really wants is to argue his position on aspects of the rtk state before the State Supreme Court–goodness knows why except for vainglory. Or as a media client magnet. And he can only do that with a client with deep enough pockets – pfue/Simon couldn’t raise enough money on line. Thus, he gave Glantz/Boyde the legal consultation when the very first request came in. The question is whether Cantorna & Craig S had a preexisting relationship such that Craig recommended the rtk phone gambit to Cantorna initially?
