Corbett Met With Investigator About Handling of Sandusky Case

Gov. Tom Corbett had a meeting earlier this week with a special prosecutor investigating his handling of the Jerry Sandusky case, according to an AP report. The questioning specifically centered around his role as attorney general and why it took so long to file charges against the former Penn State coach.

Corbett’s communications director told the AP that there was a meeting, but she did not give any additional information. Corbett was attorney general when the criminal investigation of Sandusky began in late 2008, which continued until November 2011, a year after Corbett was elected governor.

Making good on a campaign promise, Attorney General Kathleen Kane appointed Widener Law School professor and former federal prosecutor Geoff Moulton to investigate why it took nearly three years for child sexual abuse charges to be filed against Sandusky.

Moulton’s investigation has taken longer than expected due to the length of time it has taken to retrieve emails, Kane announced in February. As Corbett is up for re-election, Moulton’s report could be used as ammo by Democratic gubernatorial nominee Tom Wolf.

Corbett has maintained he did nothing wrong in the Sandusky investigation. He has said before he would meet with Moulton but believes Kane’s probe is politically motivated.

“Anybody can come in and sit down and Monday morning quarterback decisions, OK? But for a true investigation, there has to be some criminal act. I know I didn’t commit any criminal act. None, zero,” Corbett said in late 2012.
