Feds launch their own investigation into Sandusky child sex abuse scandal

    Spanier is gone, Paterno has passed away and Sandusky faces trial.

    But the investigation in the alleged child sex abuse former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky committed is far from over. The Patriot-News reports the university has received a subpoena from the feds.
    They want information on former university President Graham Spanier, as well as on Tim Curley and Gary Schultz — the two PSU officials charged with perjury and failure to report a crime in connection with the abuse charges against Sandusky.

    It’s part of another investigation into the Second Mile, Sandusky’s charity through which he met some of the young boys he’s accused of molesting.

    Several other investigations continue, including an internal one at the Second Mile and a U.S. Department of Education Clery Act probe.
