Justice is Served in Penn State Cover-up of Abuse of Boys in Shower Case

Former President of the University is Guilty, Guilty, Guilty

Nothing says more about how America’s willingness to put college sports above education and morality than the Penn State case where a football coach molested boys in the shower room of the athletic department and the school covered it up.  Now the former president of Penn State has been found guilty of a crime in covering up the abuse in order to protect the football program.

See, he was told about at least one incident but chose to do nothing.  That’s right, nothing.

A jury convicted former Penn State President Graham Spanier on one count of child endangerment for his handling of a 2001 complaint involving assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who was later convicted of child sex abuse.
The verdict closes another chapter in the criminal cases stemming from the Sandusky scandal, which first rocked the university in 2011. The jury in Dauphin County Court in Harrisburg acquitted Mr. Spanier, 68 years old, on separate child endangerment and conspiracy counts. He faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
Prosecutors said Mr. Spanier broke the law by not telling child welfare authorities in 2001 about a complaint that Mr. Sandusky acted inappropriately with a boy in a Penn State shower. They said he wanted to protect the university’s reputation.

Evil Wears Brooks Brothers or Something Like It
Wonder if His Wife plans on a long shower after toching him?

Hopefully this contemptible man will spend a lot of time in jail.  And hopefully everyone will learn a lesson.  But don’t count on either of these things happening, as leniency flows to people like Mr. Spanier and very little will stop the march to collecting millions from an athletic program at major colleges.
