Ex-Chairman of Penn State Board of Trustees Resigns

The former chairman of the Penn State board of trustees has resigned, the first board member to do so in the wake of the Jerry
Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

The board says Steve Garban announced his resignation Thursday

Garban was harshly criticized over his handling of the crisis that engulfed Penn State after Sandusky's November arrest. He faced
persistent calls from alumni and fellow board members to step down.

An internal investigation by former FBI Director Louis Freeh found Garban was briefed twice about developments in the Sandusky case but didn't share what he knew with the entire board. That deprived trustees of a chance to prepare for the worst crisis in Penn State's 157-year history.

Sandusky was convicted last month of sexually abusing 10 boys,
sometimes on campus.
