(WLTX) - This week, a major scandal involving Penn State University has led to the dismissal of the school's president and the firing of its legendary football coach, Joe Paterno.
The situation centers around Jerry Sandusky, a former assistant coach with the football team who faces a multiple count indictment on charges he molested young boys over a period of years.
WLTX.com is presenting here the key document that's triggered this week's chain of events--the indictment handed down by a Pennsylvania grand jury. Many commentators have said that until people understand what is contained in this report, it's difficult to understand the outrage that some have expressed against the leadership of the school.
Included in the document is a summary of Paterno's statements to the grand jury, and the account of what an assistant at the school said he saw Sandusky do in the locker room at Penn State in 2002.
This material has been released to the public as part of the ongoing investigation and disclosure by the Pennsylvania Attorney General's office. We want to warn you, the descriptions included in this document are graphic. Read: Pennsylvania Grand Jury Indictment of Jerry Sandusky
