Penn State leaders including late head football coach Joe Paterno concealed former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky’s child sexual abuse for years, showing a “total disregard” for his victims, former FBI director Louis Freeh said in a report on Thursday.
Pennsylvania State University trustees hired Freeh and his law firm to investigate the school’s handling of the allegations involving Sandusky, 68, who was convicted last month of sexually abusing 10 boys.
“Our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of Sandusky’s child victims by the most senior leaders at Penn State,” Freeh said in a statement on the findings of an eight-month investigation.
Freeh also criticized the board that hired him, saying it failed to hold senior leaders accountable.
If education is so important, why is it so expensive? Everyone is talking about education and its importance to success in the high-tech economy of the future, but nobody wants to pay for it.
