The Staff of Central Mountain High School
The second investigation into Sandusky began at Central Mountain High School, where Sandusky volunteered as a football coach after retiring from Penn State. In 2008, a student at the school reportedly told the principal that Sandusky molested him, and the police were called. But in grand jury testimony, both the school's athletic director, Steven Turchetta, and the wrestling coach, Joe Miller, said they had reason to suspect Sandusky before the boy came forward. Turchetta testified that Sandusky was "clingy" and "suspicious" with the boy, and sometimes visited the school to pull him out of class and meet with him privately. Miller, the coach, testified that in 2006 or 2007 he walked in on Sandusky one night, laying on the floor of the weight room, face-to-face and in physical contact with the boy. Surprised, Sandusky allegedly jumped up and said he was just practicing wrestling moves. There are also questions about whether the school may have discouraged the boy's mother from contacting the police. The superintendent says they contacted police immediately, but the boy's mother and other sources say school officials discouraged her.
