Penn State athletic director Dave Joyner has issued a statement on the conviction Friday night of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky on child sexual abuse charges.
In the statement, Joyner said:
"Our thoughts this week, and for the last eight months, have been with the victims of Jerry Sandusky’s abuse, whose courage has resulted in yesterday’s judgment. It is our responsibility to the victims and to every individual our University impacts to move forward under the highest mantle of integrity. The trust of our community has been broken, but Penn State Athletics will move forward to regain that trust, with student athletes serving as the role models we expect them to be, and coaches living by example. Our hope is that this verdict grants peace to the victims and their families and allows them to move forward in their recovery process."
