STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Special investigators have released their findings into the Penn State child sex abuse scandal. Former FBI Director Louis Freeh lead up the investigation and in his report released Thursday morning it says that top university officials including coach Joe Paterno “failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade.” Penn State’s former president Graham Spanier, vice president Gary Shultz and athletic director Tim Curley are also named in the report as individuals that knew what was happening but did not report the information according to federal law.

Freeh is also quoted in the report as saying Paterno, Spanier, Shultz, and Curley saying that by not acting and allowing “that continued access provided Sandusky with the very currency that enabled him to attract his victims. Some coaches, administrators and football program staff members ignored the red flags of Sandusky’s behaviors and no one warned the public about him.”

Freeh also says former athletic director Tim Curley consulted with Joe Paterno following sex abuse allegations against Sandusky, and "they changed the plan and decided not to make a report to the authorities."
