I think I have the name correct.
of that stuff with Lawrence Phillips et alii was happening. Nothing
much ever happened as far as anyone being convicted of any crimes.
Of course NU was winning championships at the time.
next week unless he also cuts some kind of deal.
"Fran Chardo, Dauphin County's first assistant district attorney, said the fact that prosecutors dropped the conspiracy charges against Curley and Schultz strongly indicates an agreement that they testify against Spanier. Otherwise, he said, it could imperil the conspiracy charge against the third administrator."
Their testimony likely means that neither Curley nor Schultz will see jail time for the endangerment plea.
"I would expect that if they testified and testified truthfully that their lawyers will make a strong case they shouldn't see incarceration," Chardo said. "Their lawyers will argue the real villain is Spanier."
I think if there were a strong case, this would have been tried by now. A friend of mine once did an audit (IIRC, at PSU) for Spanier. He told me that of all the audits he had done he had never had a more open and accommodating person than Spanier.
My opinion is Spanier may be the "bridge too far" target. I will always maintain that Paterno should have been the target all along. I also maintain there is a lot more to this case that just Paterno knowing.
Paterno other than maybe in the 2000s after several disappointing seasons in a row when they went to his home to ask him to resign and he told them to get off his lawn.
