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.

The adopted son of Jerry Sandusky recalled Friday the moment he told his father he would refuse to testify as a defense witness at the former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach's 2012 child sex-abuse trial. Then 33, Matt Sandusky said, he drove to his father's home, asked his mother to leave the room, and said something out loud that he had never fully acknowledged to himself. "I told him, 'You can't call me to testify. I remember things,' " he said. "All he said was, 'It wasn't sexual.' " That exchange two years ago began his very public reckoning with the sexual abuse he says he endured for years - abuse he described Friday to child advocates at a conference hosted by the Philadelphia Children's Alliance.

THE MUCKETY-MUCKS at Penn State must be cringing. Someone forgot to make sure convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky was taken off the list of fans who receive letters from head football coach James Franklin asking for support. Onwardstate.com said it obtained a copy of the letter from filmmaker John Ziegler, who wrote the book "The Framing of Joe Paterno," and who operates the website FramingPaterno.com. "I got it from someone at the Sandusky home when the letter was received," Ziegler told the Daily News in a email yesterday.

T RY TO THINK of a rise and fall in Pennsylvania politics as stunning or rapid as Kathleen Kane's. Got one? Yeah, me neither. A year ago, just 10 months in office, the state's first woman and first Democrat elected attorney general was being touted for governor or U.S. senator. These days she faces possible criminal charges amid rumors of resignation. Quite a fall. In 2013, she rocketed to national notice, elating her Democratic base. She closed a loophole to stop residents denied gun permits here from getting them from Florida.

A day after Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane acknowledged she was under investigation for allegedly leaking grand jury material, she switched subjects before a national audience. Her bombshell in that Tuesday-night CNN interview: Pornographic e-mails circulated among Pennsylvania officials had included "a string of videos and pictures sometimes depicting children. " The aftermath was familiar. Within hours, her aides were hedging and trimming, parsing her words, denying she had said the e-mails involved child porn, which is a crime often prosecuted.

HARRISBURG - A Philadelphia prosecutor asked the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Tuesday to reinstate the historic child-endangerment conviction against Msgr. William J. Lynn, former secretary for clergy for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. "He had a duty to protect children from priests, and he protected priests," said Hugh Burns, chief of the District Attorney's Office appellate unit. But Lynn's attorney, Thomas Bergstrom, said the monsignor could not be held responsible for a priest's sexual abuse of a child because the law at the time did not recognize him as a supervisor.

Pennsylvania State University's president will review the Freeh report on the Jerry Sandusky scandal that concluded former top administrators conspired to cover up child sex-abuse allegations to preserve the university's reputation, the school announced Saturday. The university said president Eric J. Barron's decision was made "in response to recent calls for an examination. " Barron told trustees Friday he would conduct the review, the university said. E-mails released last week showed regular correspondence between the NCAA and former FBI Director Louis Freeh, who led the Sandusky investigation commissioned and paid for by the university.

HARRISBURG - Joe Paterno "probably" should not have been fired, Gov. Corbett said Thursday. In his most expansive comments since the child-sex-abuse scandal erupted at Pennsylvania State University three years ago, the governor said that Paterno "technically complied with the law" in dealing with pedophile Jerry Sandusky and that university trustees should have let the iconic coach end his career when the season did. "They probably shouldn't have...

HARRISBURG - Call it the Paterno factor. Throughout the day, members of a group called Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship donned PSU gear and went to the polls to vote against Gov. Corbett. They did this not because they necessarily liked Tom Wolf any better - but out of protest. Protest over Corbett's handling, as attorney general, of the investigation into serial child sex abuser Jerry Sandusky. Protest over how he dealt with Pennsylvania State University, and its legendary football coach, Joe Paterno, after he became governor and state prosecutors brought charges in the case.

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.
