Pittsburgh Presentation Shows Nov 2011 Grand Jury Presentment Misled the Public, Media

Last November's Grand Jury Presentment Covered Up Corbett's and Kelly's Botched Investigation of Sandusky in 2008 and Who Was Victimized due to the Botched 1998 Investigation

By Ray Blehar

The slide above shows how the November 2011 grand jury presentment made it appear as if Penn State's alleged failure to report Sandusky in 2001 resulted in the abuse of six more victims.  However, a chronological account (shown below) tells an entirely different story.

Even with the addition of victims 9 and 10, a chronology of the crimes shows that Penn State's alleged failure to report in 2001 was not responsible for the abuse of the majority of the victims.  But more importantly, it shows that the police not only didn't find victims from 2001 to 2005, but didn't find any of the victims (details here).  However, there is more to the story....

The AG's presentment did it's best to mask the associations of the victims.  Nearly all of the victims abused prior to 2001 were identified by the mother of Victim 6.  In 1998, this mother told the CYS investigator that there were other children in Sandusky's circle at the time her son's alleged abuse was investigated.  CYS provided their files to DPW (Jerry Lauro) when he took over the case.  It is a tragic fact that only two children were investigated in 1998 and the other children were not sought out for investigation.  Four of the five children identified by the mother are now known as Victims 3, 4, 5, and 7.

This information about the failed 1998 investigation has been turned over to the PA Task Force on Child Abuse Prevention and to AG-elect Kathleen Kane.

  2. Ray,

    I assume you noticed the following AP story yesterday:

    The NCAA was ''malicious'' in its investigation of a former Southern California assistant football coach who was linked in a report to a scandal surrounding Heisman Trophy-winning tailback Reggie Bush, a judge said Wednesday.

    The NCAA's report on ethical breaches by Todd McNair was flawed, and the former coach has shown a probability he can win his defamation claims, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Frederick Shaller said. Complete story at following link:

    Does this open the door for the Paterno family and Penn State to pursue action against the NCAA? Assuming the BOT can be convinced to take action?

    Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving.

  3. Ray, this is fantastic work. It needs to not only get to legistators in PA, but also to the NCAA. Also, there needs to be someone in the mainstream media who is willing to present these facts the way that you did. I know there is nobody willing to do the actual research, but you've already done it for them. With so many of the "Penn State Scandal" stories, nobody has put things in chronological order, and the story is very different once the information is arranged this way.

  4. It's been pretty quite. Just read
