STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Penn State plans to renovate the building where Jerry Sandusky sexually molested boys.
University spokesman David La Torre said Friday that Penn State plans to remodel the football shower and locker room area as a direct result of Sandusky's crimes. The former defensive coordinator was convicted of assaulting some of his victims in the team shower.
La Torre says renovation plans to the Lasch Football Building were drawn up shortly after Sandusky's arrest in November. But he says Penn State can't move forward until all legal proceedings in the case are over.
Penn State President Rodney Erickson says there have been discussions about Lasch building renovations between Athletic Director David Joyner and new Penn State football coach Bill O'Brien.
