Look at this...
1) The law is written in a way so that groups can get away with covering up child abuse by exonerating people for not reporting this to the authorities. They are legally clear if they kick the problem upstairs. There is a moral breach here that puts people at odds with the "legal advice" they may be getting from their employers.
2) Sandusky didn't have to put up a nickle in bail money.
Jerry Sandusky Penn State Scandal: Judge Who Granted Bail Knew Jerry Sandusky From Charity
By Myles Collier
Reports surfaced that the judge who granted Jerry Sandusky’s unsecured bail volunteered for the former Penn State defensive coordinators’ nonprofit organization, The Second Mile.
Sandusky, 67, is charged with 21 felony counts for allegedly sexually abusing eight boys over a 15-year period.
The state Attorney General office originally requested bail set at $500,000 and required Sandusky to wear an electronic ankle monitor.
District Judge Leslie Dutchcot decided that the $100,000 unsecured bail was sufficient; she did however, order Sandusky to stay away from children. With unsecured bail, Sandusky will not have to pay any money unless he does not show up to court.
"These details have got to be reviewed. I'm sending off a letter to Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania Ron Castillo and asking him to look at what happened here, to look at the reports that are out there, and if, in fact, this district justice has a conflict of interest." State Rep. Mike Vereb to Fox News Affiliate WTXF-TV.
Some in the community were shocked that Sandusky received bail at all.
