Richmond, Va. (WTVR)—In Virginia, lawmakers and children’s advocacy groups have taken action in the wake of the Penn State sexual abuse scandal.

Ian Danielsen works for Greater Richmond Stop Child Abuse Now, or SCAN. He says the report into how Penn State officials handled the Jerry Sandusky situation was the main topic of conversation around the office Thursday.
