Our priority is to ensure children continue to be served by these programs. We were shocked and saddened by the events that led us here, but we are committed to the future of these children and their families and look forward to building on the outstanding work done by so many individuals who have been a part of The Second Mile over the years.
Arrow Child & Family Ministries CEO Mark Tennant • Discussing his plans for the assets of the Second Mile in a statement published on the closing charity’s Web site this morning. The Second Mile’s closing was caused largely due to the negative reputation the charity built in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky case.

Wow! This is the first I’ve heard of this. I had no idea. If I would have seen the report, I would certainly have done some things differently. Boy, this is a shock.
Jerry Sandusky investigator Jerry Lauro • Discussing a 1998 report, written by psychologist Dr. Alycia A. Chambers, that suggested that the former Penn State coach’s actions fit a “likely pedophile’s pattern.” “There was very little doubt in my mind (Sandusky) … was a male predator, someone that was in the process of grooming a young man for abuse,” Chambers said recently in regards to the report, which didn’t surface publicly until recently.

They are purposefully depriving him of this opportunity (to shave) so he looks unkempt.
Lawyer Victor Acevedo • Discussing the treatment of his client, teacher Mark Berndt, who stands accused of doing unspeakable things to his Miramonte Elementary School students. (Trigger warning on that link.) Berndt pleaded not guilty today in court, and his lawyer says that Berndt’s disheveled appearance prevented him from going in front of court with dignity. Acevedo also complained that his jailers identified Berndt as a child molester over the jail’s loudspeaker. “We cannot have the sheriff’s department deputies acting in such a way to essentially put a bull’s-eye on his head,” he told reporters after the hearing. The sheriff’s office took the claim seriously, investigating the complaint, which was denied by jail officials.

There’s no question in my mind that I conveyed to (university officials) that I saw Jerry with a boy in the shower and that it was severe sexual acts going on and that it was wrong and over the line.
Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary • Describing his handling of the alleged sexual abuse incident involving Jerry Sandusky back in 2002. McQueary made the statements while speaking at the pre-trial hearing for Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, two former Penn State officials charged with covering up Sandusky’s crimes by not acting upon McQueary’s evidence. The assistant coach, currently on leave, emphasized that when he went to the officials, he expected something to be done: “In my mind, that is the police. I want to make that clear.” In regards to the controversy around his handling of the incident, McQueary, who was “shocked” and “horrified” by what happened, said he wasn’t thinking straight in the direct aftermath of seeing Sandusky, but he was sure that the incident was over at the point he left. source (viafollow)

In tactical move, Jerry Sandusky waives pre-trial hearing: Sandusky’s decision to waive the pre-trial prevents the alleged victims from having to recollect their cases today, but surprised many; some see the decision as a smart tactical move on his lawyer’s part. source Follow ShortFormBlog

Jerry Sandusky arrested on two more child sexual abuse charges

The charges keep coming: Former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested today (he was first arrested on November 5th) on the strength of two new accusations of child sexual abuse against him. The charges were the result of the two accusers presenting testimony to a grand jury; both of them were members of Sandusky’s charity program for at-risk youths, The Second Mile. As this case has worn on, especially following two rather disastrous media interviews by Sandusky (with the bizarre approval of his defense attorney, Joe Amendola), it seems like the total number of his alleged victims may continue to increase at an illuminating, grim, and chilling rate. source

The only thing that transpired was the same stuff that happened to me. This kid has been through a lot because of the way I controlled him and abused him.
Bernie Fine accuser Zach Tomaselli • Admitting to the Associated Press that, years after he says former Syracuse assistant coach Bernie Fine sexually abused him, he did the same thing to another young boy. Fortunately, Tomaselli says that he’s getting help and realizes the error of his way. The revelations came out as a result of the case that Tomaselli is involved in — which will likely lead to a plea bargain for as much as three years in jail and a spot on the sex offenders’ registry — and his lawyer’s attempt to suppress the confession from the press. However, Tomaselli came clean, because he said he was “sick of hiding behind my attorney.” source (viafollow)
