The late disgraced Penn State football coach Joe Paterno may have been aware of sexual-abuse allegations involving longtime assistant Jerry Sandusky several years earlier than previously admitted, according to a new report. Washington Times – A newly obtained police document alleges Paterno once said that a 2001 complaint concerning Sandusky’s conduct with children was the second of its kind, CNN reported Saturday, suggesting the former Penn State coach lied about the extent of his knowledge about Sandusky’s sex crimes.
