The Penn State University community was shaken after former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested on multiple charges of sexual abuse of young boys on Nov. 5, 2011. The scandal prompted the firing of legendary football coach Joe Paterno and the resignation of university president Graham Spanier. Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and senior vice president for finance and business Gary Schultz were charged with perjury.

These photographs document the emotional and chaotic eight days that followed Sandusky's arrest.
