Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky will continue to collect his pension from the university as he faces 40 counts of child sex abuse charges, the Harrisburg Patriot-News said.
The 67-year-old Sandusky, who is free on $100,000 bail, got a lump-sum payment of $148,271 and gets $58,898 annually, the newspaper said. The former defensive coordinator was charged Nov. 5 with the sexual assault of eight boys from 1994 to 2009.
Former university vice president Gary Schultz, who is charged with perjury in the case, took a $421,847 payment in 2009 and gets $27,558 a month, or $331,000 a year, the newspaper said. He returned to his post in September as an interim executive after working almost 39 years for Penn State, the Patriot-News said.
