Texas police open inquiry into ex-Penn State coach
Penn State’s trip to the Alamo Bowl in 1999 has attracted the
interest of Texas authorities amid allegations of child sex abuse
involving a former assistant coach.
San Antonio police Sgt. Chris Benavides said Thursday his
department is ”looking into the possibility that an offense may
have happened” while the football team was in town.
Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky faces child sex abuse
charges in Pennsylvania. A grand jury report says Sandusky took one
boy he allegedly molested to the game and threatened to send him
home when the victim resisted his advances.
The Alamo Bowl was Sandusky’s last game at Penn State, where he
coached for more than 30 years and was once the heir apparent to
Joe Paterno. Paterno was fired for failing to do more about an
abuse report involving Sandusky.
