Freeh Report on Penn State Expected to Target More Than Just Joe Paterno
Even though Jerry Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of sexual abuse last month, the investigation regarding the actions taken by Penn State officials, including former football head coach Joe Paterno, during that time period has continued.
Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports reports the results of a probe done by a group led by Louis Freeh regarding the handling of the Sandusky situation are expected to be released soon. The iconic coach will not be the only person targeted, though.
A Wetzel source states that multiple individuals throughout the Penn State community will be examined in the report following the group's investigation into the breakdowns that allowed Sandusky's actions to go unreported.
Paterno's role continues to receive a lot of attention, as people want to know how much the legendary face of the university did to make sure Sandusky wasn't mentioned to the proper authorities, if anything. This report should clear that up.
The family of Paterno released a statement recently after leaks started pointing toward him as a main player in the process, based on the report:
"With the leaking of selective emails over the last few days, it is clear that someone in a position of authority is not interested in a fair or thorough investigation," a statement from the family read. The Paternos want all emails and documents released to the public.
Sandusky was a defensive coach for three decades under Paterno before retiring in 1999, leaving the man who helped build Penn State football into a powerhouse under scrutiny for his role in the process. Paterno's family clearly believes he's not being treated fairly following his death earlier this year.
The report, which Wetzel states is the culmination of hundreds of interviews and thousands of documents, should clear up a lot of questions about the scandal. That includes Paterno and anybody else who was involved.
It should help in Penn State's continuing effort to rebuild after the situation rocked the school last fall.
