Louis Freeh: 'Dangerous situation' at Penn State

Help

A report into child sexual abuse at Penn State University has blamed the most senior officials at the university for not protecting victims or speeding up reporting of alleged abuses.

Launching his report, former FBI Director Louis Freeh said there was a "total disregard" for the safety and welfare of victims.

They never demonstrated "any concern for the safety of Sandusky's victims until after Sandusky's arrest", Mr Freeh said.

He also singled out legendary football coach Joe Paterno, suggesting his involvement had slowed down the reporting of a 2001 abuse.
