An internal investigation of the Jerry Sandusky sex scandal led by former FBI director Louis Freeh, known as the Freeh Report, was released earlier today. The report states that Joe Paterno and other key Penn State officials knew of the 1998 sex abuse investigation into Sandusky; Mike McQueary, an assistant football coach, told Paterno in 2001 that he had seen Sandusky sexually molesting a child in the shower, but key figures, including head coach Joe Paterno and university president Graham Spanier, failed to take appropriate steps to handle the situation.
The report is scathing to say the least. University officials allegedly had “total disregard for the safety and welfare of Sandusky’s child victims.” "The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps to protect" Sandusky's victims. This report is devastating for Joe Paterno's legacy, or whatever remains of it.
