Speaking this week on the Penn State campus, state police Commissioner Frank Noonan confirmed that the case against convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky remains open.
Noonan, addressing reporters Tuesday, said troopers are still assigned to the case, but that the state Attorney General’s Office will determine how far the investigation goes.
“We still have officers associated with the case,” Noonan said. “Our troopers are still working it and they’re looking into a lot of different areas, but as far as what they are looking into, that has to come from the Attorney General’s Office.”
Sandusky was sentenced in October to serve 30 to 60 years, likely a life sentence for the 69-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach who was convicted of sexually abusing 10 young boys, sometimes on the university’s campus.
Penn State is reportedly negotiating settlements with attorneys representing with nearly 30 alleged victims of Sandusky.
