Former Penn State president Graham Spanier may face criminal charges and civil lawsuits for his role in Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse of children at the university. Spanier's lawyers, consequently, are on the attack, saying the Freeh Report "contained numerous inaccuracies."
The Freeh report ignored many important facts, including the conclusions of a far more independent and thorough investigation of Dr. Graham Spanier conducted simultaneously by federal officials responsible for our national security.
The Freeh report is not an independent judicial evaluation. Mr. Freeh, no longer a judge, runs a company that was retained by the Board of Trustees of the University. His report contained numerous inaccuracies and reached conclusions that are not supported by the data. Meanwhile, Mr. Freeh unfairly offered up Dr. Spanier and others to those insisting upon a finding of culpability at the highest level of the University. Mr. Freeh’s conclusions are not judicial or law enforcement pronouncements.
Spanier's lawyers had previously denied any cover-up by Spanier.
