Jerry Sandusky Investigation: Former Penn State Defensive Coordinator Used School's Weight Room Last Week, According To Report

Former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky continued to use the Penn State football facilities as recently as last week despite being the target of a child molestation investigation, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports' Dan Wetzel.

Multiple sources told Wetzel they saw Sandusky using the weight room in the Lasch Football Building last week.

When Penn State officials heard of a 2002 incident when a graduate assistant allegedly saw Sandusky sexually assaulting a young boy, they declined to tell the authorities. Instead, Sandusky was banned from bringing children to the football facilities and given a partial ban from university facilities. That ban, reviewed and approved by university president Graham Spanier, apparently did not cover the weight room.

Sandusky was arrested Saturday on 40 charges including felony sex charges with minors. Athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz turned themselves into authorities Monday on charges of perjury and failure to report abuse. Curley has asked to be placed on administrative leave. Schultz retired.
