Attorney Finds Errors in Report by Director Freeh on Penn State Abuse Scandal

An attorney charged with challenging a landmark report on the Penn State University investigation slammed the findings, saying they are inaccurate and misleading, the Pittsburgh Tribune Review reports.

The attorney, Michael L. Bangs, criticized the author of the report, former FBI Director Louis Freeh.

Bangs questions every page of the 267-page review that was used in the investigation and helped shape public opinion.

Bangs said the report grossly overstated the number of times Sandusky was compensated by the university.

The “use of this remarkably incorrect statistic by the Freeh report, which was then relied upon to form the basis for a number of its other conclusions, calls

into question the accuracy and veracity of the entire report,” Bangs wrote.

Freeh’s law firm could not be reached for comment.

Ex-FBI Director Freeh Facing Libel, Defamation Suit Over Penn State Child Sex Abuse Scandal

Former FBI director Louis Freeh is being sued for libel and defamation over his detailed report about the child sex abuse scandal at Penn State University, the Associated Press reports.

The university’s former president, Graham Spanier, initiated the suit because of how he was characterized in the report.

The filing came just a day before the one-year anniversary of Freeh’s report, which outlined in great detail the failures that led up to longtime assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky being sentenced to prison on molestation charges.

Spanier insisted he knew nothing about the sexual assault, so he could not have “repeatedly concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky’s child abuse case,” as stated in the report, his lawyers claim.
