Penn State Scandal: Timeline From November 2011 To July 2012

Posted: Updated:

The scandal surrounding Pennsylvania State University continues to unfold, even after a criminal conviction of one time assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

In the past week, a new report revealed a high level cover up by top Penn State officials. Graham Spanier, the former PSU president, and the family of Joe Paterno, the late famed football coach, have both denounced the report's findings.

Meanwhile Penn State still faces civil lawsuits, and now new alleged victims have come forward. The NCAA is weighing out whether or not to give the Penn State football program "the death penalty," which would suspend them for a year.

The U.S. Department of Education is still investigating PSU, and members of Congress have called for hearings about child abuse reporting laws. Amid all, a debate rages over the JoePa statue on Penn State's campus.

It's dizzying. Luckily, HuffPost College this timeline details the major breaks since Sandusky's initial arrest on Nov. 5, 2011.
