Jennifer was at the center of the Jerry Sandusky sex assault case having worked with and advocate on behalf of five of the victims who were in the grand jury report and part of the criminal trial. As a PSU graduate, she had a lot to say. She was the first person to go on the record calling for the resignations of both Joe Paterno and Graham Spanier.

Statement from Jennifer Storm, executive director of the Victim/Witness Assistance Program in Dauphin County:
“I firmly believe that Penn State officials—including Coach Paterno and President Graham Spanier – failed in their duties to report these heinous crimes to authorities. They had clear knowledge of Sandusky’s behavior since 1998, and never did one thing to protect the victims. Instead, they protected themselves and their institution.
This entire case is a systematic failure at its worst. Due in part by the lack of reporting these offenses when they were brought to light; more children were victimized as a result.
I implore any persons out there who may have suffered at the hands of Jerry Sandusky to come forward to receive free and confidential victim services. You are not alone, and there is help.”
