Official: Paterno didn't do enough to stop abuse

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Pennsylvania's state police commissioner says football coach Joe Paterno and other Penn State officials didn't do enough to try to stop suspected sexual abuse of children at the hands of a former assistant football coach.

Commissioner Frank Noonan says Paterno may have fulfilled his legal requirement to report suspected abuse by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. But Noonan says he questions "the moral requirements for a human being that knows of sexual things that are taking place with a child."

Authorities accused Jerry Sandusky of sexually abusing eight boys over 15 years through his charity for at-risk youth.

Penn State Vice President Gary Schultz and Athletic Director Tim Curley are accused of failing to alert police to complaints that Sandusky was sexually abusing boys.

Paterno has called the criminal charges shocking and troubling.
