Legal Experts Say Louie Freeh’s Penn State Report is Lacking

Some legal experts criticize former FBI director Louis Freeh for not delving deeper into the past of accused molester Jerry Sandusky while investigating the Penn State University sex-abuse scandal, The New York Daily News reports.

Freeh’s report, which was released Thursday, didn’t explore Sandusky’s relationship with children prior to 1998, when the mother of one of Sandusky’s victims told police that the then-defensive coordinator fondled her boy in the shower.

But some legal experts say Freeh should have investigated Sandusky’s time at The Second Mile, his charity for disadvantaged kids that dates back to 1977.

“We know Sandusky used Second Mile to draw together children from precarious situations, and those are the kids who predators target,” Marci Hamilton, professor at New York’s Cardozo School of Law, told the Daily News. “Given the science of sexual abuse, we know Sandusky didn’t start in 1998, when he was in his mid-50s.”
