Sandusky was convicted in June 2012 of 45 counts of sexually abusing 10 boys. The scandal led to the termination of Penn State University president Graham Spanier and the departure of head football coach Joe Paterno. Further, the state also charged Penn State’s then-director of athletics and a then-vice-president for finance and business with perjury and failing to report what they knew about the allegations.
