Despite an arrest and impending trial on 40 counts of child sexual abuse, Jerry Sandusky is still on Penn State University's payroll. So is Gary Shultz, a former university vice president, who is accused of covering up Sandusky’s alleged behavior.
When the former defensive coordinator retired, he received a lump sum payment of $148,271.
Sandusky also gets a monthly payout of $4,908 as part of his pension. That adds up to $58,898 a year.
Schultz gets even more money. He was paid a lump sum of $421,847, and receives a monthly pension payment of $27,558, which nets him $330,696 annually.
The pension board stresses that an employee forfeits his or her pension only if there’s a conviction, enters a guilty plea, or enters a plea of no contest to an Act 140 crime. That applies to certain crimes which relate to his or her employment. So Sandusky and Schultz are still eligible to receive their pensions pending any of those actions.
