STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - A new report commissioned by Joe Paterno's family challenges the conclusion by former FBI director Louis Freeh that the late Penn State coach conspired to conceal child sex abuse allegations against retired defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.
An executive summary of the critique released Sunday said the ``observations'' of Paterno by Freeh in July were unfounded. The team reviewing Freeh's work included former U.S. Attorney General and Pennsylvania Governor Dick Thornburgh, who called the report fundamentally flawed and incomplete, resulting in a ``rush to injustice.''
The family released was what billed as an exhaustive response on It called Freeh's report a disservice to Paterno, the university community and Sandusky's victims.
Freeh's findings were cited by the NCAA when college sports' governing body levied unprecedented sanctions against the football program for the Sandusky scandal.
