Jerry Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach charged with sexually abusing boys, pauses while speaking to the media at the Centre County Courthouse after a bail conditions hearing Friday, Feb. 10, 2012 in Bellefonte, Pa.

Federal prosecutors have subpoenaed documents and computer hard drives from Penn State as part of a new probe in the Sandusky child-sex-abuse case, sources tell NBC News. The subpoena is investigating a potential cover-up of Sandusky’s alleged abuse by school officials, board members, and The Second Mile. Former university vice president Gary Schultz, who was in charge of campus police when the alleged scandal occurred, is among three top former Penn State officials who have been asked to hand over all data from their computers, including internal emails. A Penn States spokes person said the university is “fully cooperating” with the subpoena.
