Paterno kin: Victims not served by removing statue
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — The family of late coach Joe Paterno says the removal of his statue from outside Penn State’s football stadium “does not serve the victims” of the sex abuse scandal that has engulfed the university.
A family statement issued Sunday only hours after the 7-foot-tall statue was removed said the only way to help victims was to “uncover the full truth.”
The NCAA announced Sunday that it would be issuing sanctions against the university whose top officials were accused in a scathing report of burying child sex abuse allegations against now-convicted retired assistant Jerry Sandusky.
Family members said in the statement that the report by former FBI director Louis Freeh was “the equivalent of an indictment … and an incomplete and unofficial one at that.”
