Freeh Report to Be Free of BoT Pre-Screening
As Day 2 of jury selection continued, a surprising and potentially transparent piece of news has emerged in regards to the Louis Freeh internal investigation.
When the former FBI Director’s report is completed, it will be released to the public at the same time it is made available to the Board of Trustees and other Penn State officials. Yesterday, this news was implied under the Frequent Asked Questions section on the new “Progress” website. University spokesman Dave LaTorre echoed the same sentiment in an email to the Associated Press earlier this morning.
No one from the Board, the University or the Special Investigative Task Force will see the report, either in draft or final form, before it is released to the public.
This contradicts some previous concerns that the Board of Trustees would get a look at Freeh’s findings before they were made available to the general public.
Freeh, who was hired way back on November 21st to conduct an internal investigation revolving around the role of the Penn State administration in the allegations against Sandusky, has conducted 200 interviews as of late March. His report is expected to be released sometime after the conclusion of the Jerry Sandusky trial before fall semester begins.
