Nassar Case Reveals Echoes of Penn State Scandal

Jan 25, 2018

The Larry Nassar case and the subsequent resignation of MSU president Lou Anna Simon are drawing some comparisons to another high-profile university scandal. 


 In 2012, Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was convicted on 45 felony counts of child sexual abuse.  The case led to the resignation of former Penn State president Graham Spanier.

Now, the NCAA is investigating MSU, just as it did with Penn State.

WKAR’s Kevin Lavery spoke with Frank Fitzpatrick, a sports reporter and staff writer with the Philadelphia Inquirer.  Fitzpatrick recounts what happened at Penn State when the Sandusky case broke.
