In the matter of Sandusky, accused child predator and former assistant Penn State football coach-years of cover up have slowly began rising to the surface recently.
On Monday, in an indication of the scandal’s fallout spreading beyond Penn State, U.S. Navy spokeswoman Lt. Cmdr. Alana Garas said that the U.S. Navy secretary recommended that Spanier “be removed from the board of advisers to the presidents of the Naval Postgraduate School and Naval War College.”
Also on Monday, the board of directors for the charity that Sandusky founded — Second Mile — announced that its CEO had resigned. The CEO of 28 years, Jack Raykovitz, a licensed psychologist, “and the board believe this is in the best interests of the organization,” said a statement.
Second Mile vowed to cooperate fully with the ongoing state attorney general’s investigation. It will conduct an internal investigation and has retained the Archer & Greiner law firm, which includes former Philadelphia district attorney Lynne Abraham.
Sandusky molested young boys after developing close relationships with them through Second Mile, according to the grand jury report.
Penn State announced a probe last week and the U.S. Department of Education wants to know whether Penn State failed to comply with the Clery Act, which requires colleges and universities “to disclose the number of criminal offenses on campus that are reported each year.” The Office of Federal Student Aid is conducting the probe.
Second Mile said Sandusky has not been involved with its children since he told officials in November 2008 he was being investigated over “allegations made against him by an adolescent male.”
