Tuesday, February 26, 2013 was a bright, cold, sunny day as I prepared to depart State College, Pennsylvania, the home of Penn State football, after participating the evening before in a really interesting and wide-ranging panel discussion; an exploration of the problems this University is facing, and continues to face, before 200 people. The program was called, “Integrity in Times of Crisis.”
Jerry Sandusky, the assistant coach and friend to recently deceased Penn State coach Joe Paterno starts his criminal trial on June 11. The allegations are quite serious (“Jerry Sandusky trial: 4 of 9 jurors so far have ties to Penn State” by Michael Muskal):
Sandusky, 68, is charged with 52 counts of abusing 10 boys over 15 years. He is accused of abusing boys from the Second Mile, the charity he founded for at-risk children.
