Victims lawyers issue statement on Freeh Report

Andrew Shubin and Justine Andronici, who, along with the Philadelphia catastrophic injury law firm Ross Feller Casey, LLP, represent Victims 3, 7, 10, Matt Sandusky and other Sandusky victims issued a statement after the release of The Freeh Report today:

"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. "
