Federal investigators’ findings in Sandusky case near release
Nearly five years after they began scouring Penn State records, federal investigators are close to releasing findings about the university’s adherence to campus-safety laws in the years leading up to the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal.
Officials with the U.S. Department of Education “hope to have something to release on this in the next 10-14 days,” a spokesman told the Tribune-Review about the sweeping investigation of security measures implemented on the University Park campus before allegations of the former assistant football coach molesting boys broke publicly in November 2011.
A jury in June 2012 convicted Sandusky of sexually abusing 10 boys in and around Penn State facilities between 1998 and 2009. Federal investigators want to determine whether Penn State complied with the Clery Campus Safety and Security Act, a 1990 law that, among other things, requires colleges to establish policies and procedures for reporting crime and to issue timely warnings of danger on and around campuses.

The CDC reports that 1 in 5 children are sexually abused.
9 out of 10 of the perpetrators are never brought to justice and never appear on sex offender registries.
They are protected by New York State laws.
