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.

ISSUE | PENN STATE Sandusky payouts vetted and thorough As chair of the Penn State board of trustees, I thought it might be helpful to highlight how the board approached the settlements for the more than 30 sex-abuse victims of former football coach Jerry Sandusky ("Trustees question Sandusky payouts," Friday). In October 2012, the full board met and authorized the legal subcommittee to approve settlements. At my direction, Ira Lubert chaired a talented subcommittee with executive experience, including legal.

Perhaps concerned that Penn State's status as a national monument to sports-inspired mass delusion was not completely secure, more than 200 former football players recently petitioned university officials to reerect a bronze likeness of tarnished coaching legend Joe Paterno outside Beaver Stadium, which was removed four years ago as a sexual-abuse scandal shook State College. Then, just a week after this latest attempt to rewrite Penn State's modern history, a Philadelphia judge unsealed reports that convicted child predator and longtime Paterno assistant Jerry Sandusky had sexually abused children there - and that Paterno and other coaches knew about it - as long ago as the Ford administration.

More previously sealed documents were released Friday from Penn State's fight with its insurance company over who should cover the costs of the nearly $93 million in legal settlements the university has paid Jerry Sandusky's accusers. Most of the filings focus on the ongoing insurance dispute , but excerpts from new depositions of key university figures are included. The documents come from the same trove of court filings that earlier this week revealed one Sandusky accuser claimed he reported his abuse to Penn State's iconic head football coach Joe Paterno in 1976.

How did Pennsylvania State University decide to hand out nearly $93 million to more than 30 of Jerry Sandusky's accusers? The process spanned months, involved lawyers and mediators, and hinged on much more than the merits of the claims, said Kenneth Feinberg, a lawyer who mediated the settlements on Penn State's behalf, along with his law partner, Michael Rozen. "This was a very intense and difficult mediation," said Feinberg, who also managed as mediator the 9/11 victims' compensation fund and the settlements with those affected by the 2010 BP Gulf oil spill.

A man who claimed that he told Joe Paterno in 1976 that Jerry Sandusky had sexually abused him in a Pennsylvania State University locker room shower testified under oath that the iconic head coach brushed off his complaint, saying he had "a football season to worry about," according to newly unsealed court records. The allegation from the man identified as John Doe 150 was included in a trove of previously confidential filings made public Tuesday. Together, they suggest that Paterno or members of his staff may have known, but did nothing, about Sandusky's sexual assaults decades before the assistant coach drew law enforcement scrutiny.

Lawyers for three former Penn State administrators accused of failing to report Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse of children filed motions last week asking that those charges be dismissed. The Pennsylvania Superior Court in January threw out the most serious charges against former Penn State president Graham B. Spanier, Gary Schultz, and Tim Curley, who were accused of conspiring to cover up Sandusky's abuse. But the men continue to face charges of child endangerment and failure to report suspected child abuse.

By Debra Schilling Wolfe Thanks to a concerned neighbor, 12 children are a little bit safer. When something did not look quite right, a woman in Bucks County said something. Her action triggered a response that resulted in the arrest of three adults, including the biological parents who "gifted" their then-14-year-old daughter to a man who subsequently impregnated her not once but twice. The now-18-year-old girl, her babies fathered by this man who considered her his "wife," and an additional nine girls suspected to be her younger siblings have ended their captivity and can begin the long process of healing.

A Philadelphia judge has ordered the unsealing of records related to Pennsylvania State University's settlements with Jerry Sandusky's accusers, siding with media outlets that sought their release. The records, which are believed to include details of claims that Joe Paterno and other coaches first learned about Sandusky's sexual misconduct decades ago, will be accessible in 31 days, Judge Gary S. Glazer ruled Friday. Any identifying information about the accusers is expected to be redacted.

A lawyer for a coalition of media outlets on Thursday told a Philadelphia judge that the public deserves to see sealed records on Pennsylvania State University's settlements with Jerry Sandusky's accusers, while the school's lawyers said such a step would unfairly open the victims to ridicule and embarrassment. The battle began after a ruling last month by Common Pleas Court Judge Gary S. Glazer cited sealed records that suggest some accusers who received payments from the university claimed that legendary coach Joe Paterno or his assistants knew about Sandusky's sexual abuse decades before his arrest.

Pennsylvania State University has opposed a move by a coalition of media organizations - including the Inquirer, the Daily News, and philly.com - to unseal court records surrounding settlements it paid to end claims by accusers of Jerry Sandusky. In a new filing, Penn State lawyers cited the need to maintain confidentiality for the alleged victims, some of whom have claimed that head football coach Joe Paterno or his assistants knew as early as the 1970s that Sandusky had sexually assaulted them.
