Katie Couric Show: Jerry Sandusky Scandal at Penn State University
The Penn State football program prided itself on its prowess and squeaky clean record but that all came crashing down when Jerry Sandusky was arrested and convicted of abusing young boys. The former assistant coach was charged with 45 counts of illegal conduct, a scandal that would also be the demise of beloved Penn State football coach Joe Paterno. After the allegations surfaced, Paterno was forced to resign and allegations the coach did not do enough to help the children tarnished his reputation. His statue on the campus was taken down and his winning career was erased.
