Freeh Report to be Released Thursday

After much speculation over the weekend, Judge Louis Freeh announced that his investigative report into Penn State’s actions surrounding the Jerry Sandusky scandal will be released this Thursday.

The report will be published on thefreehreportonpsu.com at 9 a.m., with a press conference to follow at the Philadelphia Westin hotel at 10 a.m. A stream of the press conference will be available to the public later that day.

“The publication of the report will be the first time anyone outside of Judge Freeh’s investigative team will in any way receive the report, including The Pennsylvania State University Board of Trustees and the Special Investigations Task Force,” the release states.

The Penn State Board of Trustees, which is planning to meet on Friday at the Penn State Worthington Scranton campus, also released a statement. “We look forward to seeing the report on July 12 and reviewing Freeh’s recommendations. The Board of Trustees will be holding a regular meeting this week at Penn State Worthington Scranton, and the University will provide a response on Thursday in Scranton at a time and location to be announced,” the release said.

Onward State will be in Philadelphia for the release, so be sure to check @OnwardState throughout the day for live updates.
