Jerry Sandusky Reportedly Used Penn State Football Weight Room Last Week

Dan Wetzel reports that, according to anonymous sources, Jerry Sandusky worked out “multiple times” in the Penn State football weight room last week.

Penn State said it banned Sandusky from bringing children to the football building after a then graduate assistant reported he saw the then 59-year-old coach and a 10-year-old boy in the shower of the football team’s locker room …

Curley and Schultz did not call police, as the state attorney general says was required by Pennsylvania law. Instead they chose to engage a partial ban of Sandusky from university facilities, although that apparently did not include full access to the school’s weight room. The decision was reviewed and approved by university president Graham Spanier.

Given that at least two prominent people in the football program – assistant coach Mike McQueary, the witness who saw the 2002 incident in which Sandusky allegedly raped a child in a Penn State locker room, and head coach Joe Paterno, to whom McQueary reported the incident – should have known exactly how dangerous Sandusky could be, it’s amazing that he was still allowed in Penn State facilities so recently.

This revelation also gives some credence to the grand jury report’s incredible pronouncement that, even after the 2002 incident, Sandusky was still able to bring a child to Penn State spring practices in 2007.
