Penn State report on Sandusky to be released Thursday

    Many people will be reading closely when the Penn State-commissioned report into the facts and circumstances surrounding molestation of boys by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is released this week.

    The highly anticipated report will be posted on the Internet on Thursday, with the school’s reputation and future direction hanging in the balance.

    Penn State trustees will see what it says about university employees, recommendations for policy changes and even their own knowledge about rumors Sandusky had abused children on campus.

    Penn State alumni and the family of Sandusky’s former boss Joe Paterno will look to see if it sheds new light on Paterno’s actions.

    And lawyers for the young men who testified against Sandusky will see what it might mean regarding civil litigation.
