HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – The child sex abuse scandal coming out of Penn State University involves alleged child sex crimes, one of which may have occurred in Texas when the school’s football team was in San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl in 1999.

San Antonio police Sgt. Chris Benavides told the Associated Press Thursday that his department is “looking into the possibility that an offense may have happened” while the football team was in town.

Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, who coached at Penn State for more than 30 years, is the accused perpetrator and faces child sex abuse charges in Pennsylvania. A grand jury report says a young boy, who was allegedly molested, was threatened to be sent home if the victim resisted Sandusky’s criminal sex acts against him.

Legendary coach Joe Paterno was fired Wednesday for his role in not reporting to police what he knew about Sandusky’s alleged crime.
