09 - 17 - 2012 PSU Trustees pledge to move forward
UNIVERSITY PARK (AP) - Penn State trustees on Friday promised to move forward with a detailed evaluation of changes recommended by former FBI director Louis Freeh in response to the child sex-abuse scandal that tarnished the university's reputation. At the same time, chairwoman Karen Peetz said the board wouldn't do a detailed analysis of Freeh's scathing report, which concluded that the late football coach Joe Paterno and three other school officials concealed child molestation allegations against retired defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Paterno's family and the officials have firmly denied the findings, which also have been questioned by many alumni. Sandusky is awaiting sentencing in jail after being convicted of 45 criminal counts in June.
