Report: Penn St. disregarded children’s welfare

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

STATE COLLEGE, PA (AP) — Penn State’s investigation into the Jerry Sandusky scandal concludes that the administrators who fielded a 2001 complaint about him created a dangerous situation for future victims by not reporting the matter.

The Freeh Group’s report issued Thursday said that in order to avoid bad publicity, president Graham Spanier, football coach Joe Paterno, athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz “repeatedly concealed critical facts.”

The report says the men “failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade.”

The report says all four knew about a 1998 investigation into Sandusky that didn’t result in criminal charges at the time, but none alerted the trustees and none took further action against Sandusky.

Sandusky is awaiting sentencing after being convicted of 45 criminal counts. The scandal led to the ouster of Paterno and the school’s president.

"I was actually kind of scared because I seen it jump and actually thought it could jump up here and get me," said Brame. "Because the tide was all the way up, and it was probably three feet below me."

Report: Penn St. officials concealed abuse

STATE COLLEGE, PA (AP) — Penn State’s investigation into the Jerry Sandusky scandal concludes that Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno and other senior officials “concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky’s child abuse” because they were worried about bad publicity.

A 267-page report is the result of an eight-month inquiry by former FBI director Louis Freeh, hired by university trustees weeks after Sandusky was arrested in November to look into what has become one of sports’ biggest scandals.

The report says president Graham Spanier, football coach Joe Paterno, athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz “failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade.”

Sandusky is awaiting sentencing after being convicted of 45 criminal counts. The scandal led to the ouster of Paterno and the school’s president.

Dalton raises half of GOP rival for NC governor

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina Democratic governor candidate Walter Dalton says his campaign collected more than $1 million in a little more than two months, less than half of Republican Pat McCrory’s take during the same period.

Dalton’s campaign said Wednesday in a campaign finance report to the state elections board it raised $1.05 million between late April and June 30. His campaign entered July with $714,000 in cash.

McCrory’s campaign reports it had nearly $4.4 million on hand entering the year’s second half. McCrory says he raised $2.2 million during the 10-week reporting period.

Dalton’s campaign said the fundraising gap is due in part to McCrory having little opposition in the Republican primary while Dalton won a hotly contested primary after Gov. Beverly Perdue’s late decision against running for re-election.
