A new report puts blame on Penn State leaders, including the late football coach Joe Paterno, for covering up Jerry Sandusky’s sexual abuse of children for many years.
Former FBI director Louis Freeh has stated that the callous disregard for the victims by Penn State leaders was to protect a multimillion dollar football program. Freeh probed into the Sandusky scandal for eight-months and has singled out former university President Graham Spanier. He has stated that the entire programs failure to stop Sandusky allowed him to continue luring victims for over a decade.
“The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized,” Freeh said.
Sandusky, 68, was arrested in November for sexually abusing young boys. This came nearly 14 years after Penn State University officials had become aware of the allegations against the former assistant coach.
Sandusky was convicted in June 2012 of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years and now faces up to 373 years in prison.
