Spanier Tells Freeh Investigators He was Not Aware of Any Child Sexual Abuse by Sandusky
By Ron Musselman
July 10, 2012

 ::snipping2::
Spanier met at length with investigators from the Louis Freeh Group four days ago in Philadelphia, the statement said, adding Spanier requested the meeting Friday to try and assist the Freeh group with an accurate report.

“Selected leaks, without the full context, are distorting the public record and creating a false picture,” attorneys Peter Vaira from Vaira & Riley and Elizabeth Ainslie from Schnader Harrison Segel & Lewis said in a statement.

“At no time in the more than 16 years of his presidency at Penn State was Dr. Spanier told of an incident involving Jerry Sandusky that described child abuse, sexual misconduct or criminality of any kind, and he reiterated that during his interview with Louis Freeh and his colleagues.”

Former Penn State president Graham Spanier interviewed by Louis Freeh team
July 10, 2012

 ::snipping2::
"Selected leaks, without the full context, are distorting the public record and creating a false picture,"; attorneys Peter Vaira from Vaira & Riley and Elizabeth Ainslie from Schnader Harrison Segel & Lewis said in a statement.

"At no time in the more than 16 years of his presidency at Penn State was Dr. Spanier told of an incident involving Jerry Sandusky that described child abuse, sexual misconduct or criminality of any kind, and he reiterated that during his interview with Louis Freeh and his colleagues," the attorneys said.

The attorneys said that Spanier was interviewed at length and that Spanier had requested the interview.

Spanier had previously asked the university for copies of old emails, which he said would help him better answer questions. The university, citing the Attorney General's ongoing investigation, said it could not provide those emails to him. Spanier filed a suit to get access to those emails.

In the statement issued today, Spanier's attorneys say he requested the interview with the Freeh team despite the refusal to let him see his emails from more than 10 years ago.

His attorneys said that now that the Freeh interview has taken place, they will revisit the issued lawsuit.

Ex-FBI chief Freeh's findings on Penn State expected to be released Thursday
June 10, 2012

The independent investigation led by former FBI chief Louis Freeh into the behind-the-scenes happenings and university response to the Jerry Sandusky scandal is due to be released Thursday.

Freeh's wide-reaching search included documents, digital intelligence and direct questioning of Penn State employees past and present totaling at least 400 subjects since he was hired by Penn State in November.

The goal of Penn State officials wasn't to place blame but attorneys for victims in the case are pointing to the findings as a pivotal evidence discovery in assigning liability to the university, which hasn't been held culpable for Sandusky's crimes but could face multiple civil suits.

The findings could confirm multiple leaks to the national media in recent weeks, including on the day the Sandusky trial began in June.

PSU Report on Sex-Abuse Scandal Due out Thursday
July 10, 2012

A potentially explosive report into whether football coach Joe Paterno and other top Penn State officials took steps to conceal that former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was a child molester will be released Thursday — online for all to see, officials said Tuesday.
 ::snipping2::
Freeh's spokesman said the report will be published online at 9 a.m. Thursday. Investigators will hold a news conference at 10 a.m. in Philadelphia to discuss the findings and recommendations in the report. The university trustees, who are meeting in Scranton on Thursday, said they will respond shortly thereafter.
 ::snipping2::
Tuesday's announcement that Freeh and his team of investigators have completed their work came a few hours after lawyers for Spanier denied that he was ever told of any criminality by Sandusky. The lawyers were rebutting reports that indicate Spanier, who was interviewed by Freeh investigators on Friday, might have tried to cover up the abuse.

"At no time in the more than 16 years of his presidency at Penn State was Dr. Spanier told of an incident involving Jerry Sandusky that described child abuse, sexual misconduct or criminality of any kind, and he reiterated that during his interview with Louis Freeh and his colleagues," said a statement from the lawyers, Peter Vaira and Elizabeth Ainslie.

Paterno Family Releases Statement on Heels of Pending Freeh Report
July 10, 2012

The Paterno Family released a statement Tuesday night on the heels of the pending Freeh report being released Thursday.

The full statement reads:

"Over the last nine months Joe Paterno has been praised by some in near saintly terms and criticized by others as a villain.  He was neither.

"As the people who worked closely with Joe know, he was tough, aggressive, opinionated and demanding.  He was also highly principled, uncompromisingly ethical, dedicated to his job at Penn State and committed to excellence.

"When the Sandusky case exploded last fall, Joe's first instincts were to tell everything he knew. He assumed the University would want to hear from him, but he was never given the chance to present his case.

"He planned to hold a press conference, but University officials ordered him to cancel it.  And then the various investigations started and the legal process took over.  On top of everything else, Joe was diagnosed with lung cancer.  Two months later he was gone.  The end result is his story has never fully been told.

"As this situation unfolded, Joe cautioned everyone not to jump to conclusions.   He believed that a rush to judgment and a disregard for due process would ultimately result in conclusions that would not stand the test of time.  To be clear, he did not fear the truth, he sought it.  As much as anyone he wanted to know exactly what Jerry Sandusky had done and he wanted to understand how it happened.

"The hiring of the Freeh Group is the single most important action the Board of Trustees has taken.  Joe supported this decision with the hope that it would result in a thorough, balanced and thoughtful assessment of the Sandusky tragedy.  Unfortunately, recent events have raised questions about the fairness and confidentiality of the investigative process.

"Over the last several weeks there has been a virtual torrent of leaks about the Freeh Group's work.  To be clear, we do not know the source, or sources, of the leaks.  What cannot be disputed, however, is that select emails intended to smear Joe Paterno and other former Penn State officials have been released.  Testimony from witnesses highly critical of Joe has been revealed.  And purported conclusions condemning the culture of the football program have been widely disseminated.  The Board promised a fair, transparent and impartial process.  These developments are a threat to their stated objectives.

"When these leaks first started we appealed to the Freeh Group, the Board and the Attorney General to condemn the leaks and caution the public that it would be wrong to reach any conclusions from selectively released materials.  We then asked that all emails and other documents be released so a full picture of their research could be understood.

"As purported conclusions started leaking out, we followed up with the Freeh Group to ask for the right to respond.   Since Joe Paterno never had an opportunity to present his case, we believe we should have a reasonable time to review their findings and offer information that could help complete the picture. We were told we could offer responses to the publicly reported allegations, but the Freeh Group declined to confirm that these allegations are in the final report.   It is our firm belief that the report would be stronger and more credible if we were simply given a chance to review the findings concerning Joe Paterno in order to present the case he was never allowed to make.

"Since the outcome of this process appears set in stone, we have no choice but to wait for the report and respond as best we can.  Given that the report is estimated to be between 100-150 pages it will understandably take us some time to study it and prepare a comprehensive response.

In advance of the release of the report, there are a few facts we want on the record:

    We would still welcome a chance to meet with the Freeh Group to review the findings and offer a response.  We do not seek or expect the right to edit the report; but we believe our voice should be reflected in its conclusions.

    To this point, Joe Paterno is the only person who publicly acknowledged that with the benefit of hindsight he wished he had done more.  This was an honest and courageous admission that a true leader must assume a measure of responsibility when something goes wrong on his watch.

    The sad and frightening fact is Jerry Sandusky was a master deceiver. He fooled players, coaches, law enforcement officials, child service professionals, Penn State Board members, University leaders, neighbors, donors, staff and supporters of Second Mile and his family.

    With respect to the email from Tim Curley which stated, "After giving it more thought, and talking it over with Joe yesterday - I am uncomfortable with what we agreed were the next steps," the media spin that this is proof of some sort of cover up is completely false. When the facts come out, it will be clear that Joe Paterno never gave Tim Curley any instructions to protect Sandusky or limit any investigation of his actions.

    Joe Paterno did not cover up for Jerry Sandusky.  Joe Paterno did not know that Jerry Sandusky was a pedophile.  Joe Paterno did not act in any way to prevent a proper investigation of Jerry Sandusky.  To claim otherwise is a distortion of the truth.

"If he were with us today, we are certain Joe Paterno would say that he wished he had done any number of things differently.  We also believe he would make it clear that he was not an investigator, law enforcement officer, child services professional or a member of the Board of Trustees.  Joe would accept his responsibility, but he would expect others to step forward as well."

Freeh probe into Penn State in the Sandusky case will focus on more than Joe Paterno
By Dan Wetzel
July 10, 2012

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – Contrary to suggestions made in recent leaks to the media, the findings in Louis Freeh's investigation into Penn State's culpability in the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case aren't going to focus simply on former football coach Joe Paterno and the culture of the Nittany Lion program.

According to a source, "everyone" is going to be under a harsh microscope, leaving multiple parties across the athletic department and university as a whole open to blame for a series of missteps and failures regarding the university's handling of allegations of sexual assault made against Sandusky, a longtime defensive coordinator under Paterno.

The Paterno family would do well to just shut-up.  There is no way someone would be stupid enough to not know what was going on with JS and be able to lead the football program like JP did.

Well, I tend to believe Joe Paterno knew something about Jerry Sandusky's dirty deeds. JMHO
