Former Penn State Defensive Coordinator Jerry Sandusky was arrested Saturday on charges that he preyed on boys he met through The Second Mile, a charity he founded for at-risk youths.

In addition, two high-ranking Penn State administrators were arraigned Monday on charges they lied to a grand jury investigating Sandusky and failed to properly report suspected child abuse by the ex-football coach.

University President Graham Spanier announced that Athletic Director Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, the school’s senior vice president for business and finance, would be leaving their posts.

Both men have maintained they are innocent of any wrongdoing in connection with the investigation into Sandusky and allegations that he sexually abused eight boys – preteens and young teenagers – over a 15-year period.

The case has sent shock waves throughout State College, where legendary coach Joe Paterno, while not considered a suspect at the moment, released a statement saying that, while he became aware of a situation with Sandusky, referred the matter to university administrators rather than go directly to the police.
