Penn State and the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse scandal
Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested Nov. 5 on charges that he sexually abused young boys, and two high-ranking Penn State administrators have been charged with lying about their knowledge of the crimes. On Nov. 9, Penn State trustees fired legendary head coach Joe Paterno, Sandusky's former boss, and ousted the school's president Graham Spanier. Students were outraged with Paterno's dismissal and caused a mini-riot at the school.
