Report: Decision On Charges Looms

Centre County DA will decide by the end of the week whether to file charges in connection with a recent raid on an on-campus apartment where four Nittany Lion football players live.

WJAC TV in State College conducted an interview with Centre County district attorney Mike Madeira Tuesday afternoon.

Madeira told the station he expects a final decision by the end of the week on whether to file any charges in connection with the Sept. 2 raid on a Penn State apartment where several Nittany Lion football players live. Police say the search turned up a small amount of marijuana.

Two of the residents of the apartment, defensive linemen Maurice Evans and Abe Koroma, have been suspended from the team since the raid.

At his weekly press conference Tuesday, Penn State coach Joe Paterno declined to answer questions on Evans and Koroma.

Two other residents of the apartment — tight end Andrew Quarless and defensive back A.J. Wallace — are still active members of the Nittany Lion football program.
