State Sen. John Yudichak, D-Luzerne, and State Rep. Scott Conklin, D-Centre, have announced that they both believe a more thorough investigation into the Jerry Sandusky case and related matters needs to be conducted.
On Sunday, the family of the late head coach Joe Paterno released the findings of its own private investigation into the Freeh Report, conducted by former FBI director Louis Freeh. The investigators posed some possible flaws in Louis Freeh’s report, Yodichak said.
Both legislators believe that in order for those abused by Sandusky and the Penn State community to get the full story of what went on during the Jerry Sandusky case, an investigation into the key players needs to happen, so everyone can gain closure.
“Without the full truth we cannot help the victims recover. We need a full understanding of how the crimes went undetected and due process needs to be served,” Yudichak said.
The senator and representative said they support attorney general Kathleen Kane’s investigation into how the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case was handled and are open to an investigation by the Pennsylvania General Assembly, a body that has the subpoena power that Freeh’s group did not.
