STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - After a sharp right turn off East College Avenue, drivers are treated to a sign that reads "road closed ahead. " Drive a little farther up the narrow, winding road and motorists are alerted to "Watch Children" before again being reminded the road is closed except for "local traffic. " It's a week since the news surfaced of the unfathomable sexual abuse charges against former longtime Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Aside from a couple of rumored sightings, Sandusky has managed for the most part to lay low. But that hasn't stopped the occasional person from driving by to see where Sandusky lives, right in front of Lemont Elementary School and a playground.

So what manner of a man is this Jerry Sandusky? On Nov. 13, 1999, he received a standing ovation from a crowd of 96,480. It was the occasion of his official retirement as dean of Linebacker U's impenetrable defense. For a long, long time, he was thought to be the successor to Joe Paterno. When he finally decided to leave the fold, after 32 years of unswerving loyalty and uncommon patience, they had him run out onto the Beaver Stadium sod for the last time. What must that have felt like, to hear a whole stadium of fans, on their feet, chanting your name, with Happy Valley reverberating with thunderclaps of applause and former players encircling you with hugs?

Ruling that Jerry Sandusky had sufficient time to prepare his defense to charges that he sexually assaulted teen-aged boys, a Centre County judge on Wednesday denied Sandusky's request for a new trial. Jurors convicted the former Penn State assistant football coach of 45 counts of sexual abuse of minors in a case that drew international attention. In October, he was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison. Seeking to reopen the matter, Sandusky, 68, appealed. He argued that the denial of a request for a trial delay amounted to a denial of his Constitutional right to an attorney.

Convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky was transferred Wednesday to a maximum-security prison in the far southwestern corner of Pennsylvania where he will serve his 30- to 60-year sentence. At the State Correctional Institution at Greene, the former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach's fellow inmates will include most of the state's death-row prisoners and convicted police killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. On Sunday, Sandusky was moved to the state prison in Camp Hill, where he was medically and psychologically evaluated, the Department of Corrections said.

Prosecutors on Wednesday filed new child sex-abuse charges against Jerry Sandusky, bringing to 10 the number of boys they say the former football coach molested or raped over the past decade. State police arrested Sandusky at his State College home and led him, draped in a blue-and-white Penn State track suit, in handcuffs into court. At a preliminary arraignment, Magisterial District Judge Robert E. Scott increased Sandusky's bail to $250,000 cash. He was taken to Centre County prison after being unable to immediately post bail.

About 600 potential jurors are slated to pack Centre County's courthouse Tuesday as lawyers begin the tedious task of finding a dozen who have not already made up their minds about Jerry Sandusky. In a county where the child sex abuse allegations against the former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach have already tarnished the reputation of a university and led to the downfall of local hero and former head coach Joe Paterno, that task is likely to prove challenging.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - At 10:31 a.m. on Tuesday, the large flat screen on the first floor of Penn State's student center flashed with a red breaking news update. The TV was streaming CNN all morning. Twelve miles away, Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach who was found guilty of sexually abusing 10 boys in a scandal that rattled this campus, was about to hear his fate. But here, in the HUB Robeson-Center, only 11 students sat facing the TV to hear the sentence. One of the students was napping.

Philadelphia prosecutors didn't call out state Attorney General Kathleen Kane by name last week. But they might as well have. "Clear, convincing, and compelling," District Attorney Seth Williams said of the evidence supporting corruption charges against former Traffic Court Judge Thomasine Tynes, whose case was quietly dropped by Kane last year. The facts at hand, Williams added, "are about as simple as they probably seemed to average citizens. " Referring to an informant's damning recordings, he described the revival of the prosecution as a two-step process: "press and play.

IT HAS perversion, stupidity and eddies of irony, and it's spreading like an STD. I refer, of course, to Pennsylvania's high-profile porno scandal. So far, it's X'ed a Cabinet member, Environmental Secretary Christopher Abruzzo, and his deputy counsel, Glenn Parno (that's Parno, not porno), both of whom resigned last week. It ensnared a member of the state Board of Probation and Parole, Randy Feathers, who was asked to resign but refuses, and whose first name, given the issue, all but demands the observation that "you can't make this stuff up. " It's brushed a state Supreme Court justice, Seamus McCaffery, and the head of the state Gaming Control Board, William Ryan Jr. It touched State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan, who tells Gov. Corbett that he never opened any of 300-plus e-porn gifts received.

HARRISBURG - Gov. Corbett on Friday sought the resignation of a third state official - his appointee to the state Parole Board - amid disclosures that the man had participated in the exchange of pornography over state computers. But Randy Feathers said he would not step down from the $116,000-a-year job. In an interview, Feathers said he sent a letter to Corbett explaining his stance and a second to Attorney General Kathleen Kane asking for an independent forensic expert to review the sexually explicit messages that she says he received or forwarded.

IT JUST never ends. The state that was the keystone of colonies, the cradle of Democracy, a lofty leader for what's good and right just keeps finding ways to degrade itself. And I'm not talking bond ratings. I'm talking X-ratings. As you may have heard, the governor, the chief justice of the Supreme Court and the attorney general are embroiled in a porn scandal. The guv and chief want more details (snicker, snicker) on what the A.G. has regarding who used government computers to send, swap or watch sexually explicit videos and images.

HARRISBURG - Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane has launched an internal investigation into alleged sexually explicit e-mails sent and received on state computers, her office said Tuesday. The disclosure came in a letter denying an Inquirer request for the e-mails, which sources have said circulated among scores of state employees, including prominent officials. In the letter, the Attorney General's Office said it had decided that the material does not fall under the legal definition of a public record, and argued that any such e-mails would be exempt because they are part of an internal inquiry, and may be relevant "to the investigation of violations of agency policy and the appropriate use of agency equipment.

A headline Monday with a story Monday on a social worker who heard allegations against child abuser Jerry Sandusky from a victim wrongly indicated that she was the first to hear claims about Sandusky. Concerns about Sandusky and possible child abuse were raised as early as 1998. In addition, the courtroom illustration in a photograph accompanying the story was done by Art Lien. A story Monday about a Conestoga High School student who has co-authored two scientific research papers wrongly stated details of his childhood.

LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - Six years after her interview with a teenage boy set off one of the most explosive criminal cases in state history, Jessica Dershem still works in the same windowless office in her hometown. Dershem, a 32-year-old caseworker with the Clinton County Children and Youth Services department, investigates custody disputes and claims of child abuse and neglect. She handles 12, maybe 15, cases each year. Most never make the news - because they don't involve someone like Jerry Sandusky.

A BIG BATCH of porny emails may be the very last thing Gov. Corbett, trailing badly in the polls to Democrat Tom Wolf, needs to hear about right now. Still, a judge yesterday said the state Attorney General's Office may release emails requested in the last two months by four newspapers, including the Daily News , which may have been sent or received by Corbett's top deputies when he was attorney general. The newspapers, in requests filed under the state's Right-to-Know law, described the emails as "pornographic" in nature.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Citing increased costs and the desire to create a business innovation program, Pennsylvania State University will seek a 6 percent increase in state funding next year. President Eric Barron, speaking at a board of trustees meeting Friday, called the request a "modest increase" aimed in large part at creating a "strategic partnership" with the state to bring business leaders to campus to help guide ideas developed by student researchers into the marketplace. The board-approved request of $307 million represents an increase of $17 million over last year.
