New details continue to leak out about the Jerry Sandusky and Penn State cover-up. According to a police report, which was obtained by CNN, it is believed that Joe Paterno, the former Penn State head football coach, knew of the allegations of Sandusky prior to 2001.

The police report, which was filed after the Sandusky arrest, is quoted a conversation between Paterno and his former assistant coach Mike McQueary, who blew the case open with his allegations — which later became true and put a black cloud over the football program still to this day.

McQueary reportedly told Paterno of an incident involving Sandusky in a young boy that he had witnessed. Paterno said to McQueary in 2001, “This was the second complaint of this nature he [Paterno] had received.”

A May 2016 report also suggested that Paterno knew of the allegations, as well. That report suggested that he knew of abuse dating back to 1976.

Sandusky is likely spending the rest of his life in prison, as he’s presently serving a 30-year sentence. He allegedly abused 10 boys over a 15-year span, which led to his arrest — but there may have been many more that just never came forward if the 2016 report is true.

The Sandusky arrest and cover-up led to several people, including Paterno, losing their jobs. Several Penn State administrators are even going to jail for helping covering-up the years of abuse.
