STATE COLLEGE, CENTRE COUNTY - A non-profit organization hands out pamphlets and voices their opinion on Pennsylvania's governor's lawsuit against the NCAA.
The group thinks it takes the focus away from Jerry Sandusky's victims.
The group was handing out pamphlets before Monday night's Penn State Basketball game. The organization's goal is to get Governor Corbett to drop his lawsuit against the NCAA.
Doctor Robert Hoatson's is President of Road to Recovery Inc. The organization out of New Jersey works with victims of sexual abuse. He says Penn State was right for agreeing to the NCAA sanctions.
"What we don't appreciate for the victims is that he now comes back and contests all of that, and what this does to victims, is it reabuses them, it really puts the focus back on them."
Hoatson says while Sandusky was the culprit, the environment around him at Penn State was an accomplice.
"It was the culture of Penn State University and its football program, that created the climate around which Jerry Sandusky was permitted and enabled to abuse so many children over so many years."
Penn State Junior Matt Michelone came out to see a basketball game. He says he doesn't agree with a lot of what Governor Corbett's doing. But soliciting students is too much, too soon.
"...He's got the wrong idea, as much as Governor Corbett's lawsuit to some may be politically motivated, with his election coming up in 2014, I think he just needs to [leave] these students alone... He's trying to basically tear apart a university community that's been trying to heal for
quite some time."
If Pennsylvania wins it's lawsuit against the NCAA, Dr. Hoatson says the 12 million dollars already paid by Penn State due to the sanctions won't go to out of state organizations helping to combat sexual abuse... Like his organization in New Jersey.
