Penn State’s Internal Review of Sandusky case to be released
The internal review done by the Penn State trustees of the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse case is to be released on Thursday.
Sandusky was convicted last month of a variety of charges. These range from curruption of minors to involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. He was convicted of 45 counts in all.
This announcement comes on the heals of another Penn State announcement. Graham Spanier, president of Penn State University, announced yesterday that he was never informed about the incidents involving the former football coach.
In a written statement, Spanier’s attorneys said, “At no time in the more than 16 years of his presidency at Penn State was Dr. Spanier told of an incident involving Jerry Sandusky that described child abuse, sexual misconduct or criminality of any kind, and he reiterated that during his interview with Louis Freeh and his colleagues.”
Spanier was never charged with any crimes, but was forced to step down from the university last year. Some reports suggest that emails show he was made aware of the abuses but never reported them.
Former FBI Director Louis Freeh was hired by the trustees to lead this investigation.
The investigation began last November.
