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.

    now that finals are over, is it possible to dropbox any RTK product an anonymous provider shared?
    Needn’t be meat; potatoes will do. I’m one of those cats driven by curiosity who meet an uncertain
    fate.

    Rose- I will do my best to review that and have it up this week- I appreciate your patience but given the climate I think it best to look at it and not just post it.

    @Rose,if Dershem is going to battle of wits with Parks Miller, it is like bringing a Frisbee to a knife fight. ;)

    all these 2 want is to get reelected to their longtime seats,
    and the Dems are too dumb to coalese around a
    writein to run on a joint ticket with Pipes for the one “Dem” seat.
    And he’s too much the puppy following those 2 to think of it.
    They blindsided him in the BoC mtg on 5/12 deliberately, he makes known on video,
    with the cell phone ruse. He’s been treating them like bff’s.

    I see there’s a late entry, Higgins.

  5. Rose says:

    Pipes & Higgins ought to be making political hay out of this–running as a team calling for bullet voting, criticizing County expenditures prompted by Ganz’ grandstanding for a law partner and providing flawed rtk advice. His contract performance was questioned long ago on his first renewal. Pipes & Higgins need to promise to have a thorough job performance review in all areas and evaluate his competence alongside other Soliciter applicants. That is, open it up.
    Pipes has no affirmative plan to cure Soliciter issues; he seems to lay low hoping he’s not going to be involved by
    plaintiffs.

  6. Rose says:

    lots of little stories about BoC mtg yesterday. Can’t figure Pipes out; doesn’t object to the others’ shenanigans or differentiate himself. This is the County governance climate in which Sandusky flourished. I’m thinking this climate bodes ill for Lee’s trials. He’s eager to go to trial; Fed prosecutor wants to delay. Critical witness seems a reluctant show up. At least a July 5 trial means he won’t be heading the Bellefonte 4th parade after getting off. Lee was a Dem, wasn’t he?

    another be careful what you wish for.
    Grine apparently sentenced a child sex abuser more toughly than Lunsford.
    http://www.centredaily.com/2015/05/20/4758024/howard-man-convicted-of-child.html

    This is precisely why no Judge ( or anyone) should ever remove docs from the docket file for any reason. Lux has no teeth without that and the case was sealed so it will be traceable to Lunsford, imo. It gives the APPEARANCE of impropriety whether there was bias or not, which in my view, she could not meet that burden in the first place.

    I think the real crisis is between Kistler & the judges
    he was screwing by not rightly administering the judicial
    rtk statute in Centre Cty from its passage so the public defender office did not get
    8 caseloads full of tweets, phones, texts among the judiciary in the first place.
    Obviously someone removed these 2 exhibits believing they violated the rtk statute
    and were the fruit of a poisonous tree. While Lunsford is a good bet, Grine last had
    that case file. And the prothonotary (running for reelection & unlikely to be candid voluntarily)
    and retired Court Administrator who was supposed to decide the judicial requests are candidates.

    lustrous online grad and Masorti (employee? contractor?) Michelle Shutt “likes” the PD’s appeal:
    https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=483213691827383&id=424583014357118&refid=17&_ft_=top_level_post_id.483213691827383&__tn__=%2As
    Sloane continues to look like the back-breaking accident included cognitive damage such that his continued employment until Miller terminated him was by grace.
    Posting by the Courthouse demonstration leader J Adams is just plain scarey and he needs Homeland Security on him 24/7.

    I think his delivery is hostile, and therefore not helpful and diluting, but his argument on Shutt is sound. He’s right, she had no idea whether Ruest could have given the “ok” or if she would just play along. She didn’t. She has said publicly she did not create nor sign that order. I don’t believe any of these types would be hanging their bacon out as they are if Shutt’s version of events were not true.

    Assuming it is, this is a major credibility gaffe for her and her office and I can see why defense atty’s are freaking out. It’s their job really if they believe there is improper conduct affecting their practice outcomes. Now, Sloan using derogatory language is inappropriate and well, immature.

    Michelle’s invested in the
    broader defense attorney campaign
    against Miller. Why?

    Absolutely unresearched response here- train, tracks, can’t call it back.
