Links on Freeh report, key statements
By Adam Rittenberg
PHILADELPHIA -- The Freeh report on Penn State's response (or lack thereof) to the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal is now available.
Here's the link to the full report. Needless to say, it's incredibly damning of Penn State's leadership and particularly four men: former university president Graham Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz, athletic director Tim Curley, who is on leave, and former football coach Joe Paterno.
The most revealing element is that all four men were aware of a 1998 criminal investigation of Sandusky relating to a suspected sexual assault of a young boy in the showers of Penn State's football locker room.
Louis Freeh, the former FBI director commissioned by Penn State's trustees to conduct the investigation of the school, will address the media here at 10 a.m. ET. Here's a news release detailing some of what he'll say.
Here's a statement from Penn State's leadership and the school's trustees on the Freeh report. President Rodney Erickson and several trustees will hold a 3:30 p.m. ET news conference in Scranton, Pa.
Much more to come.
