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.
