Sandusky gets 30 to 60 years in jail

Reuters, BELLEFONTE, Pennsylvania

The decision to cast a blind eye toward Sandusky has led to harsh consequences for Penn State. Its football program has been penalized; school officials face criminal charges; and the legacy of Joe Paterno, once a towering figure in college sports, has been deeply tarnished.

Paterno and Penn State president Graham Spanier were fired last year for failing to act on what they knew about Sandusky’s behavior. Paterno died in January of lung cancer at age 85.
