Artist replaces Sandusky image on Penn State mural
Sandusky repeatedly has maintained his innocence. He likely will die in prison, given mandatory minimum-sentencing requirements.
The conviction is only just the start of possibly years of legal proceedings over the case. Besides appeals, there remains an active investigation into Sandusky by the state attorney general’s office as well as a federal investigation.
Mr. Corbett said Penn State trustees are still awaiting the results of an internal investigation by former FBI Director Louis Freeh into the school’s handling of the Sandusky case.
The university also could face a wave of new lawsuits. An hour after the verdict Friday night, Penn State said in a statement it was inviting victims to “participate in a program to facilitate the resolution of claims against the university arising out of Mr. Sandusky’s conduct.” The school said it sought to address victims’ concerns privately, expeditiously and fairly.
Asked to clarify Monday, school spokesman Dave LaTorre said the university won’t discuss details about litigation or how much money might be set aside for potential settlements, and he declined to comment further.
