Reports: No Evidence Corbett Slowed Pace Of Sandusky Investigation
By Tony Romeo
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Published reports say the long-awaited results of the attorney general’s probe show no evidence that Governor Tom Corbett deliberately slowed the pace of the investigation into Jerry Sandusky’s sex abuse.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, citing an excerpt of the report it was provided, says that there is “nothing in the available document record or witness interviews” to support that then Attorney General Tom Corbett or anyone of in his executive office gave any orders on how to carry out the Sandusky investigation.
The paper does, however, say the report questions why it took until June 2011 for investigators to search Sandusky’s home, something that may have contributed to the length of the probe.
The Tribune-Review, citing sources, also says the report apparently does not disagree with Corbett’s decision to involve a statewide grand jury in the case, something that also contributed to the length of the investigation.
