Ex-Penn St officials sorry didn't do more in Sandusky case

Ex-Penn State officials face sentencing in Sandusky scandal

Graham Spanier, the former president of Penn State University and chancellor of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln was sentenced to jail time Friday for his role in the child sex abuse case of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. All three men were officially charged in 2011 over failing to report a 2001 sexual misconduct charge regarding Sandusky to the police.

Spanier, who will appeal his sentence, was also fined $7,500, Curley and Schultz $5,000 each.

Spanier, 69, will serve four to 12 months in jail and also got two years of probation. Spanier and two other former university administrators were each sentenced Friday to at least two months in jail for failing to alert authorities to a 2001 allegation against ex-assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, a decision that enabled the now-convicted serial predator to continue molesting boys. The assistant said that when he told school officials, they failed to report the incident to police.

The defendants are "good people who made a awful mistake", the judge said.

Curley received the harshest penalty: seven to 23 months, with at least three in jail and four under house arrest.

The sentences for former university president Graham Spanier, athletic director Tim Curley, and vice president Gary Schultz come six years after Sandusky's arrest.

Pennsylvania's attorney general said the verdict "leaves no doubt that there are consequences for failing to protect children in Pennsylvania".

None of the three defendants made comments as they left the courthouse, and their lawyers declined to say whether they'll be appealing. The head coach then notified Curley and Schultz, who discussed the matter with Spanier.

Gut composition affects whether white or brown bread is healthier, say researchers
One of the easiest swaps you can make for a major health boost is ditching refined flour in favor of whole wheat or maybe not. By the end it was found that the overall health of participants was virtually the same no matter what kind of bread they ate.

In sentencing memos, prosecutors accused Curley in particular of "astonishing" and unbelievable memory lapses on the witness stand.

The judge still ordered him to jail.

"It really sickens me to think I might have played a part in children being hurt", Schultz said.

Both the judge and prosecutors Friday thrust blame onto Paterno himself.

Paterno "could have made that phone call without so much as getting his hands dirty", Boccabella said. His father, he said, notified his superiors, as required under state law and university policy.

Curley and Schultz pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of children one week before they were set to go to trial on three felony charges.

"It robs my faith in who we are as adults", the judge said, "and where we are going".
