Report: Ex-PSU Prez OK’d Not Reporting Abuse

A news organization says it has seen emails showing Penn State university former president Graham Spanier agreed not to take allegations of sex abuse against ex-assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky to authorities but worried they’d be “vulnerable” for failing to report it.

CNN says the emails followed a graduate assistant’s 2001 report of seeing Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy in a shower.

Spanier hasn’t been charged. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call Saturday.

The emails, first reported by NBC, show athletic director Tim Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz intended to report the allegation, then reconsidered. Spanier responded he was “supportive” but worried that they might “become vulnerable for not having reported it.”

Schultz and Curley are awaiting trial on charges they lied to the grand jury. Sandusky has been convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys.
