Penn State Ex-president Spanier charged with perjury, obstruction of justice, endangering welfare of children

Maybe there will be some justice in this case since they finally got to the college officials responsible for the cover-up for over 20 years.

I doubt it will restore the damage done to Joe Paterno’s name being dragged through the mud by the corrupt media,  but at least they finally got to the culprits.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Two Penn State administrators facing new charges they hushed up child sexual abuse allegations against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky were preparing to be arraigned, while the university’s former president was not due in court until next week.

The arraignment of athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz on Friday comes a day after they and former president Graham Spanier were accused in a withering 39-page grand jury report of conspiring to conceal complaints about Sandusky, giving him time and access to molest more boys before his arrest nearly a year ago.

“This plan of action undertaken by these three administrators, who formed the very apex of decision making and power at Penn State, was created out of a desire to shield Sandusky from the criminal process and, perhaps most importantly, to spare the university tremendous negative publicity and embarrassment,” the jurors wrote.

The legal proceedings for Curley and Schultz were scheduled inside a district court in suburban Harrisburg, while Spanier’s first appearance was expected to be Wednesday.

Prosecutors alleged the men’s “conspiracy of silence” extended all the way to the top at Penn State, including decisions not to alert police or child welfare authorities after getting a 2001 report of Sandusky sexually abusing a boy in a team shower.

Attorney General Linda Kelly said at a Capitol news conference that all three “knowingly testified falsely and failed to provide important information and evidence.”

Spanier was charged with perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy. Curley and Schultz face new charges of endangering the welfare of children, obstruction and conspiracy. They were charged with perjury and failure to report abuse almost exactly a year ago, and await a January trial on those counts.

“This was not a mistake by these men. This was not an oversight. It was not misjudgment on their part,” Kelly said. “This was a conspiracy of silence by top officials to actively conceal the truth.” http://news.yahoo.com/charges-bring-penn-state-officials-court-063824034–spt.html

Here’s a couple posts I wrote during the peak of the media coverage.  There are some others that are interesting, especially the one about district attorney, Ray Gricar, who disappeared.

Sandusky guilty on 45 counts, finally in jail

What’s next?  There are at least three Penn State officials left to be dealt with – Tim Curley, Gary Schultz, and Graham Spanier, civil suits for sure, and more victims to be discovered.  I heard someone say that if 10 have identified themselves, there are probably at least a 100 more.  Now his own adopted son is coming forward with accusations of abuse.   The next hearing in the case is July 11th.  http://alturl.com/q5y53

It is sickening to hear of Penn State now making all these moves to make sure something like this never happens again, as if that wipes it all away.  After 20, 30, or even 40 years Now they make new rules.  Hog wash.  For at least the last 20 years, the same people have been in charge at Penn State and the Second Mile and they knew.

My question is:  Where is Victim #2 and Victim #8?  These were the two “eye witness” incidents.  They are now missing or at the very least unidentified.  And where is District Attorney Gricar, now declared dead, but with no body ever found?  There are many deep dark secrets here.

District Attorney missing since 2005 failed to prosecute Sandusky in 1998

Well, President Graham Spanier and Joe Paterno were fired last night.  Or one resigned and one was fired.

Joe Paterno has been dragged through the streets of the once mainstream media for a few days now.  And he is the one who has not been charged with anything and to me he is the least responsible.  He, Paterno, reported the 2002 incident to the Athletic Director, Tim Curley, AND to Senior Vice President, Gary Schultz.

NPR reports that:

” Gary Schultz: As Penn State’s senior vice president for finance and business which gives him oversight of university police.”

So, of course, if Schultz had oversight of the university police, the incident was effectively reported to the university police.  It was his job to TELL them.

Schultz and Curley reported it to the president of the college, Graham Spanier, who has stated he approved fully of the way they handled it, and that seemed to be the end of it, except that Sandusky was told he could not bring any boys on the campus any more..

But Jeanne Kasaris on HLN is reporting on an interesting aspect of the case (good for her) that has not been highlighted, as the media scapegoats Joe Paterno for everything, that the 1998 case was reported to authorities and the District Attorney, Ray Gricar, did not prosecute the case and it ended right there.

There are so many people responsible for this it boggles the mind, Joe Paterno being at the very bottom.

Even more interesting to me is that this same District Attorney disappeared in 2005 off the face of the earth and has not been found as of today.  He was declared legally dead last April in response to a petition by his daughter.  This really caught my attention because I follow true crime stories and have seen this disappearance story a couple of times, not realizing his connection to this case on Sandusky.

Anyway, I saw people on tv news programs last night practically shouting about how it was all Joe Paterno’s fault that this man was not stopped, when, in fact, it had previously been brought to proper authories in 1998, and, in fact, was turned over to proper authories by Paterno himself when he was told about an incident in 2002.  Gary Schultz is/was over the campus police, for goodness sakes.

Total witch hunt.  And as I said in a previous post, all of the national coverage has been focused on Paterno and with the frenzy that is a sure sign of a media hit job.

Here’s a little background on missing District Attorney Ray Gricar:  http://deadspin.com/5857966/the-mystery-of-ray-gricar-the-prosecutor-who-failed-to-prosecute-jerry-sandusky-and-who-might-be-dead

P. S.:  My main point here is that of media bias and malpractice.  There is a reason why this whole thing has been hung around Paterno’s neck.  They are vicious towards him to get the attention off the president of the university who had the ultimate responsibility to inform the police or whomever.
