(Harrisburg) -- It's been two years since Jerry Sandusky's arrest on child molestation charges, and the scandal continues to play out.

The anniversary Tuesday comes with three former Penn State administrators who fielded complaints about him still awaiting a criminal trial. There's also litigation involving the NCAA and longtime football coach Joe Paterno, among others. And universities and legislatures across the country have adopted or considered policy changes.

Sandusky and two high-ranking Penn State administrators were first charged on November 5th, 2011, in the case that has left him as one of the nation's most notorious criminals.

He's serving a decades-long sentence at a remote state prison and maintains he was wrongfully convicted.
