On November 5, 2011, a 23-page Grand Jury report rocked Penn State to its foundation. As a result of Jerry Sandusky being convicted on 45 of 48 counts sexual abuse against 10 minors and subsequent fallout and alleged coverup by several key school administrators and legendary coach Joe Paterno, these events will forever be a dark stain in the history of our university.
The prosecution called their first witness to the stand, known as “Victim 4” in the Grand Jury presentment. Victim 4 met Sandusky through The Second Mile when he was 12 or 13 in 1996 or 1997. He claims that he was subjected to involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and indecent assault by Sandusky. Most of the alleged abuse occurred on campus, but Victim 4 also traveled with Sandusky to bowl games.
