New criminal charges have been announced in connection with the Penn State sex abuse scandal. Two top administrators from the university, Athletic Director Tim Curley and senior vice president for business and finance, Gary Schultz, are facing perjury charges for failing to report suspected child sex abuse by Penn State’s former defense coordinator Jerry Sandusky.
Sandusky was arrested Saturday on charges of sex abuse. It is reported that the former football coach targeted boys he met through a charity he founded for at-risk youths called The Second Mile. The charity announced on Sunday that Sandusky ceased having any involvement with children through the charity since 2008 when he informed the organization that he was under investigation for sexually abusing young boys.
