An investigation led by former FBI Director Louis Freeh into the Penn State sexual abuse scandal said today that senior university leaders concealed evidence of the scandal, disregarding the safety and welfare of children abused by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, according to the LA Times.

The report said that school President Graham Spanier, football Coach Joe Paterno, Athletic Director Tim Curley and Vice President Gary Schultz “repeatedly concealed critical facts,” in order to avoid bad publicity.

The report says Paterno failed to take immediate action after being told  about Sandusky raping a boy in the gym shower in Feb. 2001 because he “did not want to interfere with people’s weekend.”
