New Docs: Joe Paterno Knew Of Jerry Sandusky Abuse

Joe Paterno Knew Of Jerry Sandusky AbuseAccording to newly unsealed court testimony, former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno knew of sexual-abuse allegations against assistant coach Jerry Sandusky as early as 1976. A man identified as John Doe 150 testified in 2014 that he informed Paterno about Sandusky’s inappropriate touching of him in 1976 when he was a young teenager, and that Paterno did nothing about it. Doe testified Paterno said the following to him: β€œI don’t want to hear about any of that kind of stuff, I have a football season to worry about.” Sandusky is serving a minimum 30-year prison sentence for molesting 10 boys on the Penn State campus. The documents came to light as part of litigation between Penn State University and its insurance company.
