Former Penn State President Graham Spanier was charged Thursday with hushing up child molestation allegations against Jerry Sandusky, making him the third school official to be accused of crimes in the alleged cover-up.
Jerry Sandusky has been sentenced to at least 30 years in prison in the child sexual abuse scandal that brought shame to Penn State and led to coach Joe Paterno’s downfall.
Ballantine Bantam Dell said that “Silent No More: Victim #1’s Fight for Justice Against Jerry Sandusky,” is coming out Oct. 23.
Al Pacino, best known for his roles in Scarface and the Godfather series, is set to play Joe Paterno in a movie being shopped around Hollywood, according to Deadline.com.

For NFL players with careers longer than five years, their life expectancy is less than 60. Maybe an incredible 40 beats an indifferent 80. That’s an important choice for us to make. But it is our choice, and it always will be.
Penn State’s trustees may not like the NCAA’s unprecedented sanctions against the university’s football program, but they say the alternative — the so-called “death penalty” — would have been worse.
Even with all that has been unearthed regarding the Penn State scandal, it is alarming to think that there are still many people throughout the country who are saddened and perplexed by the sanctions handed down by the NCAA
Joe Paterno’s statue went Sunday morning.
On Monday, the NCAA took the rest of Penn State’s tainted football program.
