Head coach of the Penn State football team Joe Paterno is being questioned on how he reacted in 2002 after receiving information regarding a child sexual abuse allegations regarding his defensive coordinator of 32 years, Jerry Sandusky.
According to The New York Times, Paterno was informed by a graduate student that he had seen Sandusky sexually harassing a 10-year-old boy in the football facility's showers.
Paterno did not call the police. Rather, Paterno had a meeting with the school's athletic director telling him of the witness' account.
ESPN reports that Paterno released a statement saying he felt he acted appropriately under the circumstances.
"While I did what I was supposed to with the one charge brought to my attention, like anyone else involved I can't help but be deeply saddened these matters are alleged to have occurred," Paterno said.
