Did Paterno Influence Penn State's Silence on Sandusky?

Did Paterno Influence Penn State's Silence on Sandusky?
July 2, 2012

New e-mail records suggest that Joe Paterno, the late head football coach at Pennsylvania State University, may have influenced the decision by the university not to report allegations of possible sexual abuse of a child by Jerry Sandusky, who last month was convicted of dozens of counts of such abuse, The New York Times reported. The e-mail records suggest that senior Penn State officials -- after receiving a report of inappropriate behavior by Sandusky -- were considering reporting him. But the records suggest that, after one official talked to Paterno, that plan was abandoned.
