Ex-FBI Director Freeh Facing Libel, Defamation Suit Over Penn State Child Sex Abuse Scandal

Former FBI director Louis Freeh is being sued for libel and defamation over his detailed report about the child sex abuse scandal at Penn State University, the Associated Press reports.

The university’s former president, Graham Spanier, initiated the suit because of how he was characterized in the report.

The filing came just a day before the one-year anniversary of Freeh’s report, which outlined in great detail the failures that led up to longtime assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky being sentenced to prison on molestation charges.

Spanier insisted he knew nothing about the sexual assault, so he could not have “repeatedly concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky’s child abuse case,” as stated in the report, his lawyers claim.

With trial slated for May for ex-Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, expect things to heat up.

The latest: The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Harrisburg, Pa., has subpoenaed records from the University about Sandusky, former Penn State President Graham Spanier, athletic director Tim Curley and former senior vice president Gary Schultz, according to Sophia Pearson of Bloomberg news.

“The university is fully cooperating with this request for information,” Powers said in an e-mail, according to Bloomberg.

Sandusky, 68, a former defensive coordinator for Penn State, faces more than 50 counts related to sexual abuse of boys over a 15-year period.
