The Pennsylvania Superior Court scaled back the criminal case Friday against three former Pennsylvania State University administrators accused of conspiring to cover up Jerry San- dusky's child sex abuse, validating their assertion that it was unfair to let the university's former top lawyer testify against them. In three opinions, the judges reversed a lower-court ruling that upheld obstruction of justice and conspiracy charges against former Penn State president Graham B. Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz, and former athletic director Tim Curley, as well as perjury charges against Spanier and Schultz.

The judge who will preside over Jerry Sandusky's trial on sexual abuse charges today issued an order banning tweeting or other live electronic communications from the courtroom. Jury selection in the high profile case is set to begin Tuesday. Judge John M Cleland's short order does not explain the ban, but Pennsylvania law does not permit broadcasting of a trial. Sandusky, a former assistant to Penn State's late football coach Joe Paterno is charged with molesting 10 boys he met through a charity he set up for underprivileged youth.

State prosecutors inadvertently identified at least one of Jerry Sandusky's accusers in court filings Tuesday, the latest in a series of missteps in the run-up to the former coach's sex-abuse trial next month. A document filed publicly by the Attorney General's Office named the young man identified in court filings as Victim 1 as well as others involved in the investigation, according to an order from Judge John M. Cleland that the information be sealed soon after it went up on a public website.

Pennsylvania's public employee pension system said Wednesday it would revoke Jerry Sandusky's $59,000 annual pension given his conviction and sentencing in the child sexual-abuse scandal. The State Employees' Retirement System notified Sandusky by letter that his crimes triggered forfeiture of his pension. The former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach was sentenced Tuesday to at least 30 years in prison for molesting 10 boys. The retirement system told Sandusky he would no longer receive his $4,908 monthly annuity and informed his wife, Dottie, that she was no longer entitled to a survivor's benefit.

If Jerry Sandusky cared anything about Penn State University and the children who once trusted him as a father figure, he would have willingly taken a judicial bullet - a plea bargain of jail and rehabilitation and reparations that would have helped all recover from another troublesome tale of the evil that some men do. Instead, there is a trial, the details of which make us recoil. A university that has worked diligently to move past a scandal that rocked it to its core. Kids and families who cling to the hope of only being able to carry on and live normal lives are dragged down once again by this national scandal.

With Jerry Sandusky sitting just feet away, one of his young accusers slowly breathed in, locked eyes with the former coach, and haltingly described how the sexual abuse he suffered had forever changed his life. "No sentence will ever erase what he did to me," the 26-year-old man known in court filings as Victim 5 said at an October hearing. "It will never make me whole. It will never erase from my memory his hands on my skin or mine on his. But he must pay for his crimes. " A judge agreed, ordering Sandusky that day to pay with at least 30 years of his life.

BELLEFONTE, Pa. — The judge in Jerry Sandusky's child sex-abuse case denied another defense request Wednesday to delay his trial, clearing the way for what is sure to be one of the state's most closely watched legal spectacles. Noting that "no date for trial is ever perfect," Judge John M. Cleland ordered jury selection to begin Tuesday. That tamped down speculation among some attorneys for Sandusky's accusers as to whether the former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach might be preparing to plead guilty.

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.

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.

Following the release this week of court filings that shed new light on Pennsylvania State University's multimillion settlements with Jerry Sandusky's accusers, some university trustees are calling for renewed scrutiny on the payouts - and the board member who led the committee that approved them. Ira Lubert, a Philadelphia investment fund manager, who oversaw the negotiation process that has paid nearly $93 million to more than 30 sex-abuse claimants since 2013, is poised to become the next chairman of the university's board of trustees in a vote next week.

I HADN'T seen Mike Pettine in, well, way too long. I'd covered portions of his historic career at Central Bucks West, where he went 326-42-4 in 33 seasons before walking away following a third straight state title in 1999. He won his last 45 games. The Bucks also won 55 in a row in the 1980s, and I was there for about half of them. Since his retirement we'd spoken occasionally, always mentioning the possibility of getting together for a round of golf someday. That turned into one of these years.

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.
