Penn State Insurance to Cover Fees for Subpoenaed Employees, Report Says
Penn State employees subpoenaed as part of the state investigation into Jerry Sandusky and an alleged cover-up will have their legal expenses reimbursed through university insurance, an Associated Press report suggests.
"The university suggested Tuesday that those who received subpoenas retain their own attorneys, saying fees would be paid out of a university insurance policy," reads the AP report. "It's unclear how many people were served with subpoenas last week."
The state Office of the Attorney General last week subpoenaed more Penn State employees as it continues its investigation into Sandusky and the alleged cover-up, the university reported. Neither the university nor the AG's office has publicly specified the number of employees subpoenaed, but Penn State President Rodney Erickson said they cover "a range from more senior to more on-the-ground" workers.
Sandusky, 68, of College Township, is charged with 52 criminal counts in a child sexual abuse case. Two former Penn State administrators -- Tim Curley and Gary Schultz -- are charged with perjury and failure to report in connection with the matter. All three men have maintained that they are innocent.
