Penn State University spokesman David La Torre announced Friday that the school plans to renovate the football shower and locker room areas as a direct result of Jerry Sandusky's crimes. The former Nittany Lions defensive coordinator was found guilty of 45 of 48 counts of child sex abuse, several instances of which took place within the team shower.
Plans to renovate the Lasch Football Building were reportedly first drawn up in November after Sandusky's arrest. La Torre said that the school must wait until all legal proceedings have finished before moving ahead.
There is still no word yet on what Penn State plans to do with what now stands as perhaps the biggest symbol of the scandal, Joe Paterno's statue outside of Beaver Stadium.
Legal experts say Paterno may have faced charges based on emails and evidence in the independently investigated Freeh Report released Thursday, had he been alive. Those charges could have included child endangerment, perjury and conspiracy. Victims in the Sandusky case could still sue the Paterno estate.
