A 79-year-old former New York businessman whose arson-murder conviction was overturned in the death of his daughter was freed from prison in Pennsylvania Friday after 24 years.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett said Wednesday he will file a federal lawsuit against the NCAA in a bid to overturn the hefty sanctions imposed on Penn State University in the wake of the Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal.
The young man whose claims of abuse began the criminal investigation that put Jerry Sandusky in prison said he contemplated suicide because authorities took so long to prosecute the former Penn State assistant football coach.
The team brought in by Penn State to investigate how the university handled molestation accusations against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky will release its highly anticipated report Thursday.
According their lawyer, the parents gave one of the kids a cell phone to keep with them while in foster care and were told to keep it their pockets. The couple accuses ACS of physically and sexually abusing their children.
The attorney for 28-year-old Shanel Nadal and 34-year-old Nephra Payne said they kidnapped their children out of desperation because no one was listening to them.
“Any mother who’s going through this — do what you got to do to protect your kids,” Nadal told reporters.
