The jury begins deliberations in the trial.
Former Pennsylvania State University president Graham Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz, and former athletic director Timothy Curley are sentenced to prison for covering up ex-coach Jerry Sandusky's criminal sexual acts, thereby letting him victimize more boys.
Charges of perjury and child endangerment, among others, are filed against former Penn State President Graham Spanier and two other administrators in connection with the Penn State scandal involving imprisoned former football coach Jerry Sandusky; new charges also are filed against Athletic Director Tim Curley and retired Vice President Gary Schultz, who are already under arrest on perjury and failure to report child abuse charges.
Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky is transferred to State Correctional Institution – Greene in Franklin Township, Pennsylvania, to serve his 30-to-60-year sentence on child sexual abuse charges.
After the court's declaration that Sandusky is a violent sexual predator, the presiding judge sentences him to at least 30 years imprisonment. During sentencing, the judge acknowledges Sandusky's "positive work" but further states that it served only to hide his true character. Sandusky's lawyer vows to lodge an appeal against the ruling.
Penn State's ex-president Graham Spanier rejects the report by former FBI head Louis Freeh accusing the university of a cover-up, saying he never heard even a hint of child sex abuse by Jerry Sandusky, despite indications of "horseplay", having never met a higher level of awareness.
