A FORMER PENN STATE FOOTBALL COACH IS ACCUSED OF SEXUALLY ASSAULTING SEVERAL YOUNG BOYS....

AND TWO HIGH LEVEL UNIVERSITY OFFICIALS FACES CHARGES THEY TRIED TO COVER IT UP....

DREW LEVINSON HAS THE LATEST ON THE INVESTIGATION FROM PENNSYLVANIA....

Former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky is out on bail.

Saturday, police arrested the 67-year-old for allegedly making sexually assaulting eight underage boys over a 15 year period.

(:12-:19) (SOT Joe Amendola/Sandusky's Attorney) "JERRY'S VERY, VERY DEPRESSED. HE'S VERY UPSET. HE'S VERY DISTRAUGHT ABOUT THE CHARGES, THE ALLEGATIONS."

Sandusky retired in 1999 after coaching at Penn State for three decades.

A 23-page indictment accuses Sandusky of assaulting some of his victims on campus. One of those alleged victims was said to be ten years old.

The grand jury claims Sandusky had access to vulnerable children through his charity for at risk kids.

(graphic) Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly said - - "This is a case about a sexual predator who used his position within the university and community to repeatedly prey on young boys."

Lawyers are also investigating a possible cover-up by high level university officials.

The indictment says in 2002 a graduate assistant reported he saw Sandusky assaulting a boy in a shower on campus.

Head coach Joe Paterno - - the winningest college football coach of all time - - passed the complaint to higher ups. He doesn't face any charges.

But, Prosecutors say Penn State's Athletic Director Tim Curley and Vice President for Finance and Business Gary Schultz failed to alert police .

(graphic) The University's President stands by Curley and Schultz saying : "I am confident the record will show these charges are groundless and that they conducted themselves professionally and appropriately."

Penn State officials banned Sandusky from campus.

AND KEEP ANYTHING THAT CAN CATCH ON FIRE AWAY.

MOSBY ALSO SAYS IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO KEEP THE GLASS DOORS TO THE FIRE PLACE OPEN TO ALLOW FOR A CLEAN-BURNING FIRE....

HE ALSO SAYS ITS IMPORTANT TO CLOSE THE DOORS WHEN THE FIRE IS OUT.

MOSBY SAYS PEOPLE WHO HEAT THEIR HOMES WITH ELECTRIC HEATERS... ALSO NEED TO BE CAREFUL.

"They'll turn the thermostat down at night and just place the heater close to the bed. And it'll get too close to something combustible. Same thing in the bathroom. A lot of times what we see in the bathroom is there'll be a stack of newspapers or magazines."

SINCE DAYLIGHT SAVING ENDED TODAY.... AND EVERYONE TURNED THEIR CLOCKS BACK AN HOUR... MOSBY SAYS ITS A GOOD TIME TO CHANGE THE BATTERY IN YOU SMOKE DETECTOR TOO.
