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. Tuesday, the large, flat-screen TV 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.

Full disclosure: I'm a graduate of Pennsylvania State University, Class of '82. On my desk at the Inquirer I have a Penn State coffee mug, a water bottle bearing the Nittany Lion logo, and a pen-and-pencil holder crocheted in blue and white with a "P" glued on the front. My school spirit waned when the Jerry Sandusky scandal came to light. It has slowly returned in recognition that a university is far more than the actions of a few. So when my editors asked me last month to write about the appeal of retiring in college towns from the perspective of residents at the Village at Penn State, I started planning which flavor ice cream I was going to order at Berkey Creamery once I got to State College.

A coalition of media organizations, including the Inquirer and the Daily News, asked a judge Thursday to unseal court records surrounding settlements that Pennsylvania State University paid to accusers of Jerry Sandusky who said they told head football coach Joe Paterno or his assistants about their abuse as early as the 1970s. "Public interest in these proceedings is immense," attorneys for the news outlets contended in a motion filed in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court. The information in the records, attorney Craig J. Staudenmaier wrote, "may shed further needed light on a matter that is of serious public concern - sexual abuse of children over decades by an employee of the largest public university in the commonwealth.

ISSUE | PENN STATE Be fair to all Rob Tornoe's cartoon showing a Penn State fan defending former football coach Joe Paterno while ignoring one of Jerry Sandusky's victims (Tuesday) portrayed how Paterno has come to be seen as a willing enabler of child molestation. That viewpoint is one shared by many: that to even consider the possibility that Paterno was unaware of Sandusky's predation is somehow callous. In reality, there is absolutely no reason that one can't have the utmost sympathy for Sandusky's victims while also wanting to ensure that people aren't unjustly defamed.

Dear Friends: Over the past few days, allegations have surfaced from individuals who claim to be Sandusky victims and from unidentified individuals about the alleged knowledge of former University employees. None of these allegations about the supposed knowledge of University employees has been substantiated in a court of law or in any other process to test their veracity.

Pennsylvania State University president Eric Barron said Sunday that the university has found no evidence to support the latest allegations that Joe Paterno and members of his coaching staff knew about Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse of children as early as the 1970s. Barron turned the heat on the media for reporting the allegations, some of which surfaced in court papers last week. Others were reported by CNN and NBC News. If true, they indicate that Paterno and other Penn State authorities knew about Sandusky's actions years earlier than had been alleged.

With a single paragraph in an otherwise unnoticed legal ruling this week, a Philadelphia judge reignited the contentious debate over Joe Paterno's legacy - and revived a scandal that Pennsylvania State University had hoped it had moved beyond. The court filing cited a settlement that the school paid to a man who said he told the legendary football coach in 1976 that assistant coach Jerry Sandusky had sexually assaulted him. By Friday, more accusers had come forward with claims that they, too, had alerted Paterno or others on his staff to Sandusky's sexual misconduct decades before it drew law enforcement scrutiny.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - The leader of Pennsylvania State University's trustees said Friday that he did not know that a financial payout the board approved for one of Jerry Sandusky's accusers went to a man who claims that he reported the sexual abuse to Joe Paterno in 1976. But board chairman Keith Masser downplayed any suggestion that the decision to settle the potential lawsuit meant the board believed that the university's storied head football coach knew - and said nothing - about Sandusky's crimes decades before Sandusky drew law enforcement scrutiny.

A judge on Thursday ordered a hearing for this month at which Jerry Sandusky's lawyers can try to prove his claims that prosecutors lied, withheld evidence, and leaked secret grand jury information in a bid to find additional victims of sexual abuse by the former football coach. Judge John Cleland said the May 20 hearing would "provide the defense with an opportunity to prove" claims as it seeks to overturn the verdicts against the former Pennsylvania State University assistant coach or win a new trial.

Pennsylvania State University paid settlements to end claims that Joe Paterno and other coaches at the school knew as early as the 1970s that Jerry Sandusky was assaulting children sexually, according to court filings and a person familiar with the payouts. One accuser was a child when he allegedly told Paterno in 1976 that Sandusky had molested him. Two assistant coaches witnessed Sandusky's misconduct with children in the 1980s, and a former athletic director also was told about sexual contact between the former assistant coach and a child, according to the filings.

Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane will not seek to overturn an appellate court ruling that dismissed the most serious charges against three former Pennsylvania State University leaders accused of ignoring or covering up Jerry Sandusky's child sex abuse. The decision, announced Friday by Kane's office, is a major victory for former Penn State president Graham B. Spanier and top aides Tim Curley and Gary Schultz in a legal battle that has languished for more than four years. Each was accused of concealing or failing to act on Sandusky's conduct as a serial sex abuser and then lying about it to investigators.
