Jerry Sandusky Headed To Prison, But Scandal Persists

Headed to prison for the rest of his life, Jerry Sandusky leaves behind a trail of human and legal wreckage that could take years to clear away. Victims face a lifetime of healing. Penn State is laboring under severe NCAA penalties. And at least four civil lawsuits have been filed against a university shamed by scandal, with more likely to come. If Sandusky felt any remorse or pity for anyone but himself, he didn't show it at his sentencing Tuesday. Instead, speaking in court for the first time since his arrest last November, the former Penn State assistant football coach delivered a disjointed and defiant monologue in which he denied committing "disgusting acts" against children and cast himself as the victim.

Swim Coach Banned for Life in Sexual Abuse Case

USA Swimming banned coach Rick  Curl for life for an improper relationship with a teenage swimmer in  the 1980s. Curl, who ran one of the  nation's largest swim clubs near Washington, D.C., and coached 1996 and 2000  Olympic gold medalist Tom  Dolan, was scheduled for a hearing Wednesday before the National  Board of Review. But he informed the governing body he was waiving his right  to challenge the case. Curl voluntarily gave up his  membership and will be added to USA Swimming's list of banned individuals, which  is published on the organization Web site. The coach was accused of  starting a relationship with a 13-year-old female swimmer in the 1980s. Kelley  Davis Currin said she received a $150,000 settlement from Curl not to go to  law enforcement with details of the illicit four-year relationship, but decided  to come forward after the sport was rocked by a sexual abuse scandal two  years ago.

Boy Scouts of America Files Reveal Repeat Child Abuse

Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney found the following article interesting regarding the Boy Scout of America "perversion files" and the moving/relocating of child sexual predators. During our work with clergy sexual abuse, priests were often moved from parish to parish and continued to commit their heinous acts.  Much like the "perversion files", the church had secret archives detailing abuse.  The article below details what has been discovered at Boy Scouts of America. Internal documents from the Boy Scouts of America reveal more than 125 cases in which men suspected of molestation allegedly continued to abuse Scouts, despite a blacklist meant to protect boys from sexual predators. A Los Angeles Times review of more than 1,200 files from 1970 to 1991 found suspected abusers regularly remained in the organization after officials were first presented with sexual misconduct allegations.
