CA--L.A. coach – an ex-Penn State staffer – should speak up now, victims say

For immediate release: Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 503 0003 cell, bdorris@SNAPnetwork.org)

Four ex-Penn State coaches, including one now in Los Angeles, have been implicated in newly-released records concerning Jerry Sandusky and Joe Paterno.

We call on these former PSU staffers to publicly address allegations and suggestions that they knew about or suspected child sex crimes by Sandusky but did little or nothing to stop them or report them to police.

PA--Victims beg Paterno family to “face facts & end denial”

For immediate release: Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790,314 645 5915 home, davidgclohessy@gmail.com)

Damage to the Paterno family name is becoming increasingly self-inflicted as relatives of the controversial coach continue to deny evidence that he was told long about Jerry Sandusky’s child sex crimes. It’s a sad and hurtful sight.
