6 News Investigation: PSU trustee works to clear criminal record

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.
A Penn State trustee is looking to clear up his criminal past.
It was last year, when 6 News reporter Gary Sinderson asked university trustee Mark Dambly about an arrest during his Penn State student days that landed him in jail.
Dambly told Sinderson last November, on camera, he didn't “recall” anything about the incident when questioned about the criminal record. But new, legal documents filed this week show something must of jogged his memory.
In the wake of the Sandusky scandal, the university had completed thousands of background checks on employees and other associated with the university. But so far, none have been done on any of the trustee members.
Now, Dambly is trying to clear his criminal past in Centre County.
Court documents uncovered by Sinderson showed that 1979, Dambly was involved in a fight in State College. He reached a plea bargained to a disorderly conduct charge with five days in jail.
This week in Centre County court, Dambly filed a legal request to have the documentation from the incident expunged from court records. Included is a recent state police background check, indicating no other problems for Dambly.
The expungement request comes as there's more talk of doing background check on the trustees themselves. It was last November the trustee board was told many at Penn State were being checked.
Dambly's expungement will now be reviewed by court officials before a decision is made on request.
