Jerry Sandusky Scandal

Attorneys for Graham Spanier: No date set for dispute of Freeh report

Attorneys for former Penn State President Graham Spanier have not scheduled a press conference to discuss what they say are inconsistencies in the Freeh report, despite previous suggestions to the contrary.

The report, which the university hired former FBI director Louis Freeh to complete, singles out Spanier, Joe Paterno and former administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz for their response to what were then allegations of child sexual abuse by Jerry Sandusky.

Sandusky was convicted in June on 45 counts of child-abuse related charges. He is now in the Centre County prison, awaiting sentencing.

Attorneys for Spanier, Curley, Schultz and the Paterno family have all denounced the Freeh report.

Spanier’s attorneys were reportedly planning a news conference to respond to the Freeh findings.

But Spanier attorney Peter Vaira did not confirm that one is being planned, saying only in an email that a date hasn’t been set and if there is one, media will be notified.
