PITTSBURGH (3-7 THE FAN) — Director of Sports Law Institute at Vermont Law School and Sports Illustrated Contributor Michael McCann joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller to discuss the legal ramifications of everything taking place at Penn State.

McCann said despite what the Attorney General had to say regarding Joe Paterno and the state not seeking legal action against him at this time, there are inconsistencies in reports that could leave Paterno open to prosecution.

Another legal issue is Jerry Sandusky being allowed out on bail, and why someone who is a danger to society is allowed to walk free.

We also had McCann discuss the Child Protective Services law and whether or not everyone’s actions in regard to reporting what they saw and heard about Sandusky met the obligations set forth.
