    Two months, after he played the “I’m old with health issues” and the COVID card, and his attorney is still crying to the press. Fuck you and your old, complicit client.

  3. Mary deYoung says:

    Don’t forget, he also received a $2.5 million severance package from the University. This 2 month long prison sentence, with “appropriate medical furloughs,” is little more than virtue signaling on the parts of the state and the courts: “See how outraged we are! We care about kids!” I won’t apologize for my cynicism. I’ve seen too much of how power and privilege protect and perpetuate themselves: In that regard, the OCCK case is no different from the Sandusky case.

    • Joe says:

      If you recall, when the Jerry Sandusky case broke , the big issue with the board of directors was , “Who is going to coach the football game this Saturday ?”
