Police report corroborates testimony that Paterno knew of previous Sandusky allegations

CNN obtained a Pennsylvania police report that described Paterno's reaction to whistleblower Mike McQueary showing up in his office in 2001 and telling Paterno that he had witnessed Sandusky engaged in "an extreme sexual act" with a young boy in the football locker room.

Paterno allegedly told McQueary in 2001 that the claim against Sandusky "was the second complaint of this nature he had received", according to the police report, which was written after Sandusky's arrest 10 years later.

McQueary told Paterno he had witnessed Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy in the showers of Penn State's facilities in 2001.

Jerry Sandusky, who served on Paterno's coaching staff for 30 years until his retirement in 1999, was arrested in 2011 and convicted in 2012 for sexually abusing 10 boys in 15 years.

Katia downgraded to tropical storm as it moves into Mexico
Meanwhile, Hurricane Jose strengthened to Category 4, and hurricane watches were in effect for the northern Leeward Islands. National Hurricane Center says that Tropical Storm Katia is starting to stall over Mexico's Sierra Madre mountains.

He was never charged with a crime, although unsealed depositions by alleged victims said Paterno knew of the abuse as far back as 1976.

Efforts to reach the Paterno family Saturday were not immediately successful. He was convicted of 45 chargers of sexual abuse in June 2012 and is now serving a minimum of 30 years in prison.

Paterno died in 2012, and there's been a lot of discussion about his legacy ever since. Sandusky is in jail and is now appealing the court's ruling.

In a letter published by USA Today last September, Jay Paterno, Paterno's son and the Nittany Lions' current quarterbacks coach, stated that his father never enabled Sandusky and that he reported the 2001 allegation to the fullest extent of the law.

Syria govt behind gas attack in April
The UN is reporting that the Syrian government has used poison gas to attack civilians at least 27 times. The Khan Sheikhoun attack was just one of 33 chemical weapons attacks that it has documented.

That contradicts Paterno's 2011 testimony.

During former Penn State president Graham Spanier's child endangerment trial this spring, former Penn State athletic director Tim Curley testified that he had discussed a 1998 allegation against Sandusky with Paterno.

In a new report, Joe Paterno admitted that there had been a previous complaint against Jerry Sandusky (l.).

Although the head coach testified before a grand jury that he "had no inkling that Sandusky might be a sexual deviant" prior to allegations in 2001, documents unearthed since Paterno's death suggest he was told about Sandusky's criminal behavior decades earlier. "I wish I had done more", was his response when he was sacked from his job after 46 years at the helm.
