Joe Paterno Heard Accusation Of Sandusky Molestation In 1976

Sammy Stanley | 13 July, 2016, 09:49

In the Penn State community, an alumni group is pushing for a bronze statue of Paterno to be restored on campus, and for the university to repudiate a 2012 report by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director Louis Freeh that blamed Paterno, other university leaders and a "culture of reverence for the football program" for Sandusky's rampant sexual abuse.

Paterno does not fare well in the newest releases, which include a deposition with John Doe 150, who claims he told the coach when he was 14 and was dismissed.

"Specifically. Yes ... I was shocked, disappointed, offended", the man replied. Depending on which expert you talk to about the settlements, the university is either trying to take care of all the claims very quickly to get them over with or taking great care in addressing each plaintiff. You're not going to do anything else?'

Paterno's status as a universally revered figure in the college football world came crashing down in 2011, when it was revealed Sandusky molested numerous children through his charity, The Second Mile, while officials at Penn State failed to respond to multiple warning signs.

Anderson's statements were contained in court documents unsealed Tuesday in a dispute between Penn State and its insurer.

In a 2014 deposition, Doe says he was visiting Penn State for a football camp, PennLive reports.

Penn State President Eric Barron wrote to people connected to the university to say "the alleged knowledge of some former Penn State employees is not proven" and that speculation divides the Penn State community. Penn Live reported this week that John Doe 150 "shouted out" the specific incident of molestation, which Sandusky then apologized for. In 2011, Schiano was asked whether he had ever seen during his six-year stint at Penn State any indications that Sandusky might be a child predator. That's decades before Paterno, who died in 2012, said he first heard of allegations against Sandusky, an assistant coach for his team.

That other assistant coach was identified later in the testimony as Greg Schiano.

"Some of the coaches' sons would come in and work out", Doe 101 said. According to the man's testimony, Paterno told him "I don't want to hear about any of that kind of stuff, I have a football season to worry about?".

In McQueary's testimony, he indicated that he had discussed witnessing Sandusky abusing a victim.

Bradley, who on Tuesday also denied witnessing any inappropriate behavior at Penn State, is now the defensive coordinator at UCLA, and Schiano is beginning his first season in the same position at Ohio State.

Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association Insurance is suing Penn State in an attempt to stop reimbursement of the school over settlement payments made to Sandusky's victims.

A lawyer who helped mediate claims against Penn State said last week the university was diligent in making sure the claims were backed up. But it should also be noted the settlement process was protracted and included several layers of vetting, with some claims rejected, and Penn State knew it would have to justify settlements, which total nearly $93 million, to its insurer.

Penn State on Tuesday released a statement before the release of the court documents that said: "The University does not plan to provide additional comment on these matters, as this information has largely already been covered by media".
