Alumni-based Penn State group blasts Freeh report

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — A group of alumni and others with ties to Penn State is finding a lot to criticize in the Freeh report that detailed the university’s response to reports that Jerry Sandusky was behaving inappropriately with children.

Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship said its review of the report turned up “failures” involving lack of disclosure, witnesses who were not interviewed and a supposed lack of evidence to back up conclusions about senior university administrators.

The 57-page report said the university should have examined the role of state and local government officials and Sandusky’s charity, The Second Mile.

Sandusky is awaiting sentencing on 45 counts of child sexual abuse.

Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship calls itself an organization of alumni, students, supporters and friends of the university.
