3 former Penn State officials get jail terms in Sandusky abuse case

A former president of Penn State and two other former university administrators were sentenced Friday to at least two months each in jail for failing to alert authorities to a 2001 allegation against ex-assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, a decision that enabled the now-convicted serial predator to continue molesting boys.

"Why Mr. Sandusky was allowed to continue to the Penn State facilities is beyond me," Judge John Boccabella said.

"All three ignored the opportunity to put an end to [Sandusky's] crimes when they had a chance to do so," the judge said.
