Ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky receives 30-60 year sentence for child sex abuse

Ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky receives 30-60 year sentence for child sex abuse | Sports Ethics - Scott, F. | Scoop.it

Via CBS News:

 

BELLEFONTE, PA. -- Jerry Sandusky was sentenced Tuesday to at least 30 years in prison — effectively a life sentence — in the child sexual abuse scandal that brought shame to Penn State and led to coach Joe Paterno's downfall.

 

Judge John Cleland sentenced him to 30 year minimum to 60 years maximum in prison. Under Pennsylvania law, Sandusky cannot be released on parole before the minimum term is up.

 

A defiant Sandusky gave a long, rambling statement in which he denied the allegations and talked about his life in prison and the pain of being away from his family.

 

The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant coach was found guilty in June of 45 counts of child sexual abuse, convicted of molesting 10 boys over a 15-year period. Witnesses said Sandusky used the charitable organization he founded for troubled children as his personal hunting ground to find and groom boys to become his victims.

 

His arrest 11 months ago, and the details that came out during his trial over the summer, transformed Sandusky's public image from a college coach who had been widely admired for his work with The Second Mile charity into that of a reviled pervert who preyed on the very youngsters who sought his help.

 

Eight of the boys he was found guilty of molesting testified at his trial, describing a range of abuse that included fondling, oral sex and anal intercourse. One of the prosecution's star witnesses, former graduate assistant Mike McQueary, testified that he saw Sandusky raping a boy in a locker room shower.

 

At today's sentencing hearing a victim impact statement from Victim #1 was read: "I have tried to think of the words that would describe how Jerry Sandusky has impacted my life. It all began with Jerry Sandusky building my trust over a long period of time. Then came the ultimate betrayal. My psychologist describes it as PTSD - I describe it as emotional agony. To the end Jerry Sandusky wanted to manipulate and abuse each of the victims. No remorse, only evil..."

This has to be one of the most worst cases in history. You were looked upon as a role model but you took innocence from children.

Michael 's curator insight, November 21, 2014 11:08 AM

In the previous article i scooped i said that 'it can happen to anybody any age" this article proves it this coach was abusing 15 year old teens and this shows that no matter what the age you can get abused.

There should never be a time when words result in violence.  The children should not be subjected to this.  Where are the ethics when hiring the coaches for this team?  If this was the first issue with the law, then I may look at it as a loss of temper. This wasn't the situation, this man had been previously involved with the law and should not have been on that field coaching impressionable children.

Tyrone Butler's curator insight, February 17, 2013 7:35 PM

What is this type of behavior teaching our youth? Should there be a screening process implemeted for selecting a coaching staff?

It should be the main role. Ethics should trump winning at all costs, but we all know that is just not the way it is.

Kelly Poggensee-Wei's curator insight, October 13, 2013 12:43 PM

Ethics plays a strong role in the world of sports. Someone with a good code of ethics is fair, respectful, has integrity, and responsible. It goes along with leadership because when you are someone that is in charge and setting an example for others it's important to set a precedent for what is right from wrong. When I'm working in sports when I get out of college I want to be someone who believes in doing the right thing no matter what the situation might be.

Manuel Barnett's curator insight, May 18, 2014 10:45 PM

Professionalism at all times as a coach is must. Parents are trusting you with their children be them boys or girls, and they expect nothing but the utmost professionalism at all times. This is a prime example of where ethics on both the personal and professional level failed.

Ex-University of Georgia coach Jim Donnan charged in Ponzi scheme that targeted other football coaches

Ex-University of Georgia coach Jim Donnan charged in Ponzi scheme that targeted other football coaches | Sports Ethics - Scott, F. | Scoop.it

ATLANTA (CBS News)- Former University of Georgia football coach Jim Donnan is accused of orchestrating an $80 million Ponzi scheme, using his influence to get high-profile college coaches and former players to invest, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said Thursday.

The West Virginia-based liquidation company, GLC Limited, would buy appliances and furniture for resale, promising high rates of return that didn't materialize, federal regulators said. The pair raised about $80 million from nearly 100 investors, but only about $12 million of that was used to buy merchandise for liquidation while the remainder was used to pay false returns to earlier investors or was spent by Donnan and partner Gregory Crabtree, of Proctorville, Ohio, the SEC said.

Donnan also funneled large sums to two of his adult children and a son-in-law, and regulators are seeking to recover at least some of that money, the SEC said.

Donnan was head football coach at Marshall University from 1990 through 1995 and at the University of Georgia from 1996 through 2000 and later became an ESPN analyst.

Among the coaches Donnan helped attract were Texas State football coach Dennis Franchione; Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer; ex-Dallas Cowboys coach Barry Switzer and Texas Tech football coach Tommy Tuberville...

Legal and Ethical Responsibilities of a Coach

How many career options can provide the excitement, challenges and satisfaction of coaching? Coaches at all levels experience the pleasure of watching young people develop sport skills and contribute to successful teams. However, coaches also have important legal and ethical obligations to their schools and their athletes. Many of these obligations or responsibilities are natural extensions of the mission and goals of the high school athletic program. Others are defined legally or are expectations of society for a “teacher” in a school activity.

Jason Cain

   Coaches must adhere to legal and ethical responsibilities within the profession. These responsibilities are outlined through certification classes. All coaches must keep athletes safe both physically and emotionally and these standard that they must follow are outlined in the National Association for Sport Physical Education. A coach needs to be a role model for athletes under his or her care. 

 

Renee Seruntine's curator insight, May 14, 2014 3:53 PM

Legal and ethical obligations play an important role in how a coach will teach his or her players.

Dillon Fury's curator insight, September 10, 2014 12:44 PM

In this podcast, the Coaches involved in its production are seeking to assist coaches in understanding how to recognize things that are right and wrong when it comes to ethical issues that are currently being faced in football.  A lot of coaches only care about winning, but in reality if you cheated in any way, shape or form then you did not win.
