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?

A judge on Wednesday ripped the NCAA for forcing Pennsylvania State University to pay $60 million in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal and said she intended to review whether the penalty was legal. In an opinion upholding a state law that seeks to ensure that the funds go to programs in Pennsylvania, Commonwealth Court Judge Anne E. Covey wrote that there were "many discrepancies" between the NCAA's constitution and its July 2012 agreement with Penn State on the sanctions.

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.

Almost five months after three former high-ranking Pennsylvania State University officials were ordered to stand trial on charges of covering up evidence that coach Jerry Sandusky was molesting children, they are scheduled to return to a Harrisburg courtroom Tuesday for a hearing that could shape the outcome of the case. The purpose of the hearing has been shrouded in secrecy - the official court docket doesn't specify the nature of the proceeding, and state prosecutors say only that it pertains to sealed grand jury information.

HARRISBURG - Gov. Corbett signed into law Monday three child-protection bills, part of the ongoing effort to transform the way the state handles child-abuse cases following the Jerry Sandusky case. The legislation, which emerged from a task force created after the indictment of the former assistant football coach at Pennsylvania State University, will create a statewide database to track reporting of child abuse and provide dedicated funding for Child Advocacy Centers. "The bills I am signing into law today are another step forward in the fight to end child abuse," Corbett said.

LET'S AGREE on two things about the controversial sting on Philadelphia pols. One, we still don't know who's right and who's wrong about how it was handled. Two, in its aftermath, individual and institutional rehab is in order. This is true for state Attorney General Kathleen Kane, whose rising-star reputation got sucked into a black hole from which it remains to be retrieved. It's true for the Legislature; once again tarnished, once again exposed for ethical lethargy and ongoing failures to promote public trust.

Jerry Sandusky's latest attempt to overturn his conviction on 45 counts of child sexual abuse was denied Wednesday as the Pennsylvania Supreme Court said it would not hear his appeal. The former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach, convicted in 2012 of sexually abusing 10 boys he met through his charity for underprivileged youth, had asked the court to review his case because he said his attorneys were not given adequate time to prepare for his 2012 trial. His defense team had to review thousands of pages of transcripts and other documents, some of which they said they received just weeks before trial.

Former Pennsylvania State University president Graham B. Spanier is asking a federal judge to halt his trial on charges that he helped cover up child sex-abuse by Jerry Sandusky, this time alleging misconduct by a prosecutor. In a lawsuit filed Monday against Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane in Harrisburg, Spanier accuses former Deputy Attorney General Frank Fina of violating his right to due process and acting in bad faith by bringing charges based on testimony from Cynthia Baldwin, Penn State's former top lawyer.

An attorney for Jerry Sandusky contends that members of the state retirement system used an unprecedented and improper interpretation of the law to strip Sandusky of his pension after his conviction on child sex-abuse charges. The State Employees Retirement System revoked Sandusky's $4,900 monthly Pennsylvania State University payments after concluding that his 2012 conviction violated laws governing such pensions. Sandusky stopped working as a Penn State assistant football coach in 1999, but the agency concluded he was "an actual or de facto employee" of the school through 2008, a span during which he sexually abused boys.

Seven months before Jerry Sandusky's arrest, investigators believed they were on the verge of a bigger bombshell: that top officials at Pennsylvania State University had for years protected a serial sex abuser who assaulted young boys on campus. In a closed-door meeting, Deputy Attorney General Frank G. Fina asked a judge to let them get years of e-mails from officials, including coach Joe Paterno and President Graham B. Spanier. "It appears possible that quite a number of people at Penn State University either knew or suspected something untoward was happening," Fina said.

Rarely, it seems, is anything what it appears to be when it comes to Pennsylvania politics. Thus we have the state's top law enforcement officer declaring that crimes have occurred, but offering excuses for not pursuing the alleged criminals that seem to get weaker by the day. The truth is unlikely to be revealed without further investigation and possibly legal proceedings. Both the state Ethics Commission and the state House Ethics Committee have been asked by a private citizen to look into the matter.

For more than a year, a documentary producer and other supporters of Jerry Sandusky have been building a campaign to discredit his accusers and the investigation that led to his conviction as Pennsylvania's most infamous serial sex abuser of children. The latest step came Wednesday, as Sandusky's wife defended her husband in a nationally broadcast interview. "People need to know that Jerry is not guilty," Dottie Sandusky told NBC's Today . The image of a tearful Dottie Sandusky contrasted sharply with the spouse who testified matter-of-factly at her husband's 2012 trial and who had been described by his victims as aloof and disinterested.
