STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State’s trustees aren’t going to take a fresh look at the 2012 report the university commissioned into how the Jerry Sandusky molestation scandal was handled.
The board voted 17-to-9 on Tuesday against a resolution by an alumni-elected trustee to comb through the report and seek answers from Louis Freeh, the former FBI director who led the team that produced it.
The board did OK a resolution that said it will monitor ongoing legal proceedings related to the matter.
The debate demonstrated the deep divide among board members about the report, which concluded football coach Joe Paterno and top administrators concealed key facts about Sandusky’s abuse to avoid bad publicity.
Sandusky was convicted of sexual abuse of 10 boys and is serving a prison sentence.
