Penn State Board of Trustees member Anthony Lubrano said in a press release issued Saturday that "Penn State is entitled to a refund" from former FBI Director Louis Freeh for his report on the university's handling of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case.
Lubrano, citing similar sentiments from fellow trustees Al Clemens, Ryan McCombie and Adam Taliaferro, said the Freeh Report prompts "a number of serious and troubling questions. His comments follow the issuing of the Paterno report — a critique of the Freeh report — commissioned by the late head coach's family.
Lubrano said that the engagement letter between Freeh and the Penn State Board of Trustees held an agreement for him "...to perform an independent, full and complete investigation of the recently publicized allegations of sexual abuse at the facilities and the alleged failure of PSU personnel to report such sexual abuse to appropriate police and government authorities."
He proceeds to state, "We now know that this did not happen" further calling the investigation a disservice to "the victims, the university and the community at large."
Lubrano added that the Freeh Report is "far from complete," further pointing to its "inaccuracy and unfairness," thereby providing the grounds for the university to ask Freeh "to return some or all of the millions paid to him by Penn State."
