ormer FBI director and federal judge Louis Freeh released a report commissioned by Penn State University about how the school handled sex-abuse allegations brought against assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky — who was convicted in June of 45 counts related to sexually abusing 10 boys. The report noted that "the most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized." The report implicated former Penn State president Graham Spanier, late football coach Joe Paterno, former Penn State athletic director Tim Curley, and former Penn State Vice President Gary Schultz, saying they "never demonstrated, through actions or words, any concern for the safety and well-being of Sandusky's victims until after Sandusky's arrest." The Freeh report could play a role in the upcoming trials of Curley and Schultz, who have been charged with lying to a grand jury and not properly reporting child abuse.
