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.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - A "Joe Paterno Forever" sign hung off a tent in the Beaver Stadium parking lot. Off another: "We tailgate at the house that Joe Pa built. " Some fans donned "409" shirts, referring to the late coach's number of wins. And at the former site of Paterno's statue, a small crowd gathered, leaving balloons and signs to mark the 50th anniversary of his first game as head coach. Lettermen, hundreds of whom were in town, left bricks to symbolize the "players wall" that was removed along with the statue in 2012.

By Jared Rosenblatt There is justified outrage over the six-month sweetheart sentence that Brock Turner, a former Stanford University swimmer, served following his conviction of three felonies for his attack on a young woman. As bad as Turner's vile and despicable actions were, they pale in comparison to what Pennsylvania State University is about to do. Last week, Penn State announced plans to honor former head coach Joe Paterno on Sept. 17 - at a home football game to commemorate Paterno's first-ever game.

Court filings made public Wednesday outline state prosecutors' arguments to proceed with criminal charges against three former Pennsylvania State University administrators for failing to report Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse of children. Superior Court in January threw out the most serious charges against ex-president Graham B. Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz, and former athletic director Tim Curley - perjury, obstruction of justice, and conspiracy. But prosecutors last week argued that the men can still be tried on charges of child endangerment, failure to report suspected child abuse, and conspiracy to endanger the welfare of children.

BELLEFONTE, Pa. - Knowing the criminal case it was building against Jerry Sandusky was likely to shake Pennsylvania State University to its core, the Attorney General's Office in 2011 went to extraordinary lengths to keep the investigation secret, case prosecutors said Tuesday. They drafted a fake subpoena - one listing a prominent person's name - to see if anyone in the office might try to leak it to the press. No one took the bait. And later, when details of the sex-abuse case were posted on a state-run court website days before prosecutors had planned to announce the charges, they dispatched investigators to determine if a Centre County district judge purposefully filed them early in public view.

BELLEFONTE, Pa. - Seeking to overturn their client's conviction, Jerry Sandusky's lawyers focused Monday on a lingering mystery from his 2012 prosecution: Who was Victim 2? Who was the boy that graduate assistant Mike McQueary said he saw Sandusky rape in 2001 in a locker-room shower - an accusation that not only helped put Sandusky away, but brought down head football coach Joe Paterno, and led to charges against former Pennsylvania State University president Graham B. Spanier and two others?

BELLEFONTE, Pa. - Testifying Friday in a bid for a new trial, Jerry Sandusky unleashed a torrent of attacks on the process that sent him to prison. He lambasted his trial lawyer's decision to keep him off the witness stand. He questioned rulings by the judge that gave him just months to prepare his defense. And as for the eight young men who in 2012 persuaded jurors he was a serial sexual predator - "what they call victims" is how Sandusky contemptuously described them - the former Pennsylvania State University coach forcefully sought to impugn their credibility.

With the world watching four years ago, Jerry Sandusky kept silent, opting not to testify in his defense before a jury that labeled him a serial sexual predator. He is to return to the same Centre County, Pa., courtroom Friday in a bid to overturn that conviction. But this time, the former coach has vowed to take the witness stand - and force his victims, prosecutors, and defense lawyers to do the same. Sandusky's lawyer says their testimony will expose the case as a "modern-day Salem witch trial" that he says led to the conviction of an innocent man. The arguments aren't novel, and the odds of success are long.

LEHMAN, Pa. - Despite criticism over his approval of $93 million in settlement payments to Jerry Sandusky's accusers, Philadelphia investment-fund manager Ira Lubert was elected chairman of Pennsylvania State University's board of trustees Friday. The election was uncontested, but some alumni trustees had been vocal last week about their hesitance to elect Lubert without public scrutiny of the money paid to 32 Sandusky accusers. As chair of the board's legal subcommittee in 2012, Lubert oversaw the payout negotiation process.

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.
