Sandusky Investigation Report Released

Pennsylvania attorney general says more could have been done to put Jerry Sandusky behind bars earlier.
        Pennsylvania's attorney general released the results of a new report Monday on the Jerry Sandusky investigation.
        The reports finds more could have been done to put the convicted pedophile behind bars earlier. But the investigation stalled for months in the three years it took to build a case against him.
        Special Deputy Attorney General and former federal prosecutor H. Geoffrey Moulton Jr. conducted the review. He says one of the factors in the long delay in prosecuting Sandusky was the early involvement of the state's Child and Youth Services Agency.
        The state police and various child welfare agencies have disputed that the actions of their staffs contributed in any way to the delay in the investigation. But instead said the initial case was too weak to stand alone in criminal court.
        Sandusky was eventually convicted of 45 counts of child sex abuse against 10 boys in 2012.
        The link to the entire report by Attorney General Kethleen Kane is attached.
