An internal probe into the Penn State child sex abuse scandal found that top university officials, including former president Graham Spanier and then-head football coach Joe Paterno, concealed allegations of abuse by ex-assistant coach Jerry Sandusky to "avoid the consequences of bad publicity."
Spanier and Paterno, as well as former university vice president Gary Schultz and ex-athletic director Tim Curley, participated in "an active decision to conceal" allegations against Sandusky, ignored red flags, disregarded victims' safety and welfare, and failed to protect victims from Sandusky, the probe's leader told reporters Thursday.
The head of the probe, former FBI Director Louis Freeh, also said Thursday that Curley consulted with Paterno following a February 2001 sex abuse allegation against Sandusky, and "they changed the plan and decided not to make a report to the authorities."
