Prof. McCann Analyzes Penn State Sex Abuse Scandal for Sports Illustrated
November 11, 2011
Professor Michael McCann, one of the nation's top sports law experts, analyzed the Penn State sexual abuse scandal in his Sports Illustrated column on Nov. 9 and Nov. 11.
The scandal involves the school's handling of allegations against Jerry Sandusky, 67, a former assistant football coach under head coach Joe Paterno. Sandusky was arrested Nov. 5 on charges of sexually abusing eight boys over a 15-year period.
Penn State officials have been criticized for a failure to act adequately after learning that Sandusky might have been abusing children. No one at the university alerted the police.
