Jerry Sandusky Scandal

Graham Spanier's attorneys to address Freeh report at a press conference this morning

Former Penn State president Graham Spanier's attorneys will address the Freeh report, which they have previously said contains inaccuracies and reaches conclusions not supported by the facts, during a press conference Wednesday.

Spanier, who is still a tenured professor at Penn State, is one of the high-level administrators targeted in the Freeh report. That investigation, commissioned by the unviversity's board of trustees, concluded that Spanier, Joe Paterno and two former administrators who are now facing perjury charges tried to cover up what they knew about Jerry Sandusky.

Spanier's attorneys haved issued statements since the release of the Freeh report in July saying it contains inaccuracies. Spanier himself said in a July 23 letter to trustees that he would never "stand by for a moment to allow a child predator to hurt children."

The press conference is scheduled for 11 a.m. In Philadelphia.
