Spanier told them to meet with the graduate assistant.He was not told the identity of this person to be Mc Queary.
Additionally, three Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) school officials (including school president Graham Spanier and athletic director Tim Curley) were charged with perjury, obstruction of justice, failure to report suspected child abuse, and related charges. The Penn State Board of Trustees terminated the contracts of Curley and of the longtime head football coach, Joe Paterno.
Jerry Sandusky's criminal trial began on June 11, 2012, at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania.
The scandal broke in early November 2011 when Sandusky was indicted on 52 counts of child molestation.
Although Sandusky's abuse may have begun in the 1970s, he was charged with abuse that occurred between 19.
He again testified on December 16, 2011 at the trial of Curley and Schultz that he was in the Lasch Football Building on the University Park campus on a Friday night in March 2002.
In this testimony, Mc Queary got the month and year wrong.
On Sunday morning, Paterno called then athletic director Timothy Curley regarding the incident.
Curley, along with then university Senior Vice President for Finance and Business Gary Schultz, both went to Paterno's home that same day, and Paterno told them what Mc Queary had reported to him and advised them that because Mc Queary had not provided details to Paterno, he recommended that they speak directly to Mc Queary.
Freeh found a "total and consistent disregard by the most senior leaders at Penn State for the safety and welfare of Sandusky's child victims", which "empowered" Sandusky to continue his abuse.
The Freeh Report had far-reaching outcomes for Penn State.
On May 7, 2012, the AG's office corrected the date of the incident to February 2001, estimating it occurred on or about February 9.
