Report by Ex-FBI Chief Freeh to Shed Light on Molestation Scandal at Penn State
Did Penn State University officials conceal that former defensive coordinator was Jerry Sandusky a child molester? How did the school and coach Joe Paterno respond to previous molestation accusations against Sandusky more than a decade ago?
A report by former FBI chief Louis J. Freeh is expected to answer those questions and many more when it is released online Thursday, the Associated Press reports.
According to a statement by his family, Paterno “did not cover up for Jerry Sandusky. Joe Paterno did not know that Jerry Sandusky was a pedophile. Joe Paterno did not act in any way to prevent a proper investigation of Jerry Sandusky. To claim otherwise is a distortion of the truth.”
Attorneys for the university’s deposed president, Graham Spanier, said he did not participate in a cover-up to protect Sandusky and the university’s image, according to the AP.
