Sandusky case headed to another court battle


HARRISBURG, Pa. — The Jerry Sandusky scandal appears headed for another court battle that is sure to prolong the media spotlight on how the former Penn State football icon molested boys, sometimes in the school’s facilities.

Penn State’s ex-president and two former top school administrators were ordered to stand trial on charges accusing them of covering up their failure to tell police about a 2001 allegation that Sandusky molested a boy in a university locker room shower, even after they knew police investigated complaints about Sandusky showering with boys in 1998.

It was, said lead state prosecutor Bruce Beemer, a “conspiracy of silence.”
