Report: Sandusky Present At Penn State Weight Room As Recently As Last Week

Tuesday November 8th, 2011

Former Penn State defensive coordinator and accused child molester Jerry Sandusky visited the football team’s weight room multiple times last week, according to sources who spoke to Yahoo! Sports.

Sandusky was arrested Saturday on child molestation charges stemming from incidents between 1994 and 2009 involving eight young boys, reports claim.

The most recent reported incident was in 2002, when a graduate student witnessed Sandusky showering with a ten-year-old boy. The student reported what he saw to long-time head coach Joe Paterno and Paterno in turn reported the incident to the administration. The administration failed to notify the police, breaking Pennsylvania law. The university only imposed a ban on Sandusky bringing children into the football facilities. This action, however, banned the known sex offender Sandusky from the campus in general.

Sandusky, 67, after three years of investigation, was officially charged by a state grand jury with counts of deviate sexual intercourse, corruption of minors, endangering the welfare of a child, indecent assault and other offenses.
