Yeah, I was surprised by that but saw that apparently, legally, he's covered by reporting it. Obviously he's ok legally but, in terms of morally, it was absolutely the wrong decision.
He isn't facing jailtime but his tarnished legacy will tell us all what the right decision would have been. The sad part for Paterno is that he'll probably die before this all has a chance to blow over completely.
