Penn State athletics rocked by child sexual abuse allegations.

This isn't any way this sounds good.  A former Penn State assistant coach under Joe Paterno has been charged with sexual abuse of minors. Worse, two school officials, including Penn St. athletic director Tim Curley have been charged with perjury involving the case.

"HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP)—Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and another school administrator were charged Saturday with perjury and failure to report in an investigation into allegations that former football defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually abused eight young men, state prosecutors said.
Sandusky, 67, of State College, was arrested Saturday and released on $100,000 bail, the attorney general’s office said. Curley, 57, and Penn State vice president for finance and business Gary Schultz, 62, both of Boalsburg, were expected to turn themselves in Monday in Harrisburg. Schultz’s position includes oversight of the university’s police department."

Penn State head football coach  Joe Paterno is said to have reported the allegations to Curley, his boss.

"Longtime head coach Joe Paterno, who has more victories than any coach in the history of Division I football, was not charged, authorities said. When Paterno first learned of one report of abuse he immediately reported it to Curley, prosecutors said."

There's a chance for a lot of fallout coming from this.

Disgusting. Joe Pa didn't tell the police? What is wrong with him?
