Jerry Sandusky, L, and Joe Paterno, R. [Reuters]
Three surviving Penn State administrators involved in the cover-up of convicted sexual predator Jerry Sandusky will now be convicted felons themselves.
Joe Paterno, Penn State's revered football coach, would most certainly have shared the minimum 1-year sentence in jail.
Sadly, Mr. Paterno has passed away of lung cancer.
The presiding Judge was extremely clear about Paterno's culpability.
"Why Mr. Sandusky was allowed to continue to the Penn State facilities is beyond me," Judge John Boccabella said. "All three ignored the opportunity to put an end to [Sandusky's] crimes when they had a chance to do so."
Boccabella also criticized the actions of former football coach Joe Paterno, who like the other administrators failed to alert child welfare authorities or police to the 2001 complaint.
Paterno "could have made that phone call without so much as getting his hands dirty. Why he didn't is beyond me," Boccabella said.

Are we done with capsule coffee makers yet? Sure, they’re easy. But they are not so easy on the environment, and it’s debatable whether they actually make a better cup. Luckily, there’s never been a better time to switch back to the good old reliable drip method – especially when drip coffeemakers have quietly been […]
If there’s one thing that stayed consistent through the last decade or so of tech industry turmoil, it’s the love affair between techies and Linux. There’s just a ton you can do with the OS, and its open-source format means you can customize your rig from the ground up. Apparently not content with that level […]
Accidents happen. And when they do, you’re going to want a dash cam for a second pair of eyes. At the minimum, a decent dash cam can save you vast sums of time and money in case of an accident. But a really good dash cam can do a whole lot more. Here are six […]
