The family of the late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno announced today that it plans to conduct its own investigation into the report that concluded that Paterno and other top Penn State officials worked to conceal Jerry Sandusky's long-running alleged sexual abuse to protect the school from negative attention. The report was compiled by former FBI chief Louis Freeh.
"We are dismayed by, and vehemently disagree with, some of the conclusions and assertions and the process by which they were developed," the family said of the report. "We believe numerous issues in the report, and [Freeh's] commentary, bear further review."
After the report was released on July 12, the family it consulted its attorneys to perform their own review, calling the findings "another shocking turn of events in this crisis..."
The 267-page Freeh report was an indictment of how Penn State officials, including Paterno, former university president Graham Spanier, former athletic director Tim Curley, and former vice president for finance Gary Schultz handled Sandusky's behavior.
Freeh's report revealed for the first time that all four men knew about the 1998 investigation that said Sandusky had been seen showering with a young boy. It said they made a careful decision after a 2001 allegation of sexual abuse not to report it to police. The investigation included 430 interviews and reviews of 3.5 million emails and other documents.
