Attorneys for Sandusky Victims Release Statement

Andrew Shubin and Justine Andronici, the attorneys who represent Victims 3, 7, 10, Matt Sandusky, and other Sandusky victims, have released the following statement on the Freeh Report, released this morning:

The Freeh report is absolutely devastating to Penn State. It confirms that at the highest level, Penn State officials, including the University President and head football coach, knew that Sandusky was a child predator, but made the deliberate and reprehensible decision to conceal his abuse.

They chose to protect themselves, Penn State’s brand and image, and their football program instead of children. The report shows that in 1999, Penn State agreed to provide Jerry Sandusky with a retirement package that specifically included Penn State credentials and access that enabled him to continue to groom and sexually abuse boys.

Although the Freeh report focuses on isolated incidents of abuse in 1998 and 2001, as the criminal convictions clearly establish, Jerry Sandusky was abusing boys before 1998. We intend to demonstrate that Penn State and The Second Mile were aware of the abuse decades earlier and failed to take action to stop it.
