HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Results of Penn State's review of Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse scandal has been released to the public.
Penn State's investigation into the Sandusky scandal concludes that Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno and other senior officials "concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky's child abuse" because they were worried about bad publicity.
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.
The report says president Graham Spanier, football coach Joe Paterno, athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz "failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade."
The report into Sandusky's molestation says sexual abuse might have been prevented if university officials had banned him from bringing children onto campus after a 1998 inquiry.
The report said that despite their knowledge of the police probe into Sandusky showering with a boy in a football locker room, Spanier, Paterno, Curley and Schultz took no action to limit his access to campus.
The report also says the four men didn't act to protect children as a result.
The May 1998 complaint by a woman whose son came home with wet hair after showering with Sandusky didn't result in charges at the time.
The report says Schultz was worried the matter could be opening "Pandora's box."
Sandusky is awaiting sentencing after being convicted of 45 criminal counts. The scandal led to the ouster of Paterno and the school's president.
