Penn State Scandal: LIVE UPDATES On Jerry Sandusky, Joe Paterno And Investigation

Penn State Scandal: Live Updates

The Penn State campus was rocked by shocking allegations of sexual abuse by former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. The former coach has been charged with sexually assaulting eight young boys over a span of 15 years.

Athletic Director Tim Curley and senior vice president for business and finance Gary Schultz face criminal charges for lying to the grand jury investigating Sandusky as well as for failing to alert the police when the accusations were first brought to them in 2002. The two stepped down on Sunday night.

According to the police report, a graduate student (later identified as current assistant football coach Mike McQueary) witnessed Sandusky sexually assault a naked boy in a team locker room shower in 2002. He reportedly told head coach Joe Paterno the following morning. The legendary football coach is said to have immediately told Curley. On Monday, Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly spoke to reporters and said Paterno was not a target of the investigation. Paterno had been scheduled to address the media at 12:30 pm on Tuesday, but that press conference was cancelled shortly before it was set to begin.

With reports swirling that Paterno will be forced out and with new victims still coming forward, this story is developing at a rapid pace. Follow here for updates on the situation as it unfolds. Send tips to @HuffPostSports.
