Jerry Sandusky Victims To Get Promised Assistance From Penn State, School Says

Back in January, Penn State University promised to find Jerry Sandusky's alleged sex abuse victims and pay for their "abuse-related health costs," but the Patriot News' Sara Ganim reported Wednesday evening that no victims had yet been helped. Hours later, the school announced it has established a partnership with which it can follow through with its pledge.

As for the pending trial itself, the cases for and against the former Penn St. Nittany Lions coach are still being constructed, with judge John Cleland providing the defense with the contact information of Sandusky's accusers. One alleged victim's lawyer says Sandusky "knows what he did to these young men."

Penn State's own investigation also continues, with former FBI chief Louis Freeh's team interviewing 200 individuals. Freeh has been tasked by the school's Board of Trustees with exploring exactly the role the football program played at the school in light of the Sandusky coverup.
