Penn State has confirmed to the Patriot-News of Harrisburg that it received a subpoena earlier this month from the U.S. Attorney's office related to the Jerry Sandusky child-sex abuse case. The feds appear to be conducting their own parallel inquiry even though the case is still being prosecuted by the state attorney general's office in Pennsylvania, which charged Sandusky with 52 counts of abuse against 10 children in addition to charging two Penn State administrators with perjury and failure to report abuse. It seems the federal probe was launched because the grand jury presentment states that one of Sandusky's alleged victims was taken across state lines to Penn State bowl games in Florida and Texas in the late 1990s.
A source told Sara Ganim of the Patriot-News that The Second Mile, the charity Sandusky founded for at-risk children, had received a federal subpoena back in November, shortly after Sandusky was arrested. What the feds want from Penn State is information about fired university president Graham Spanier, on-leave athletic director Tim Curley, and former senior vice president for business and finance Gary Schultz. Curley and Schultz are the two PSU administrators charged for their roles in the alleged cover-up.
