It has been my understanding that Joe Paterno was made aware of one incident involving Sandosky and a child. He reported that as hearsay from a graduate assistant. A decision to not call in the police was suggested by Paterno in favor of bring Sandosky in for a conference and some counsel was suggested or further corrective measures would be taken if necessary. What I question and don't know is what happen beyond this point? Who had the responsibility to deal with Sandosky on the issue. Did a meeting take place and what was done about the accusation.
Is it possible that Paterno ask those in charge about their follow up and was told, It's taken care of! Was this issue treated as an isolated case that would never happen again or was their an attitude that we dont care.
It's my feeling that no coach in a major college program is going to let something like this go on and on. I have to think that Paterno felt this was an isolated case that was addressed. Sandosky or any other coach would have not been able to keep this going at any college program.
Nobody is that important.
