Report: Penn St. Disregarded Children's Welfare

Posted: Updated:

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Penn State's long-awaited internal investigation into the Jerry Sandusky says senior leaders disregarded the safety and welfare of his victims.

A 267-page report is the result of an eight-month inquiry by former FBI director Louis Freeh, hired by university trustees weeks after Sandusky was arrested in November to look into what has become one of sports' biggest scandals.

Freeh was tasked with uncovering the school's failings in stopping Sandusky, a retired assistant football coach. The report also is expected to address broader issues including the influence wielded by the late coach Joe Paterno and the balance of power among athletics, school administrators and trustees.

Sandusky is awaiting sentencing after being convicted of 45 criminal counts. The scandal led to the ouster of Paterno and the school's president.
