Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky leaves the Centre County Courthouse in handcuffs after a jury found him guilty on 45 of 48 charges in his sex abuse trial in Bellefonte, Pa., Friday.
This Thursday, Penn State University will release an independent report on the sex-abuse scandal that has rocked the institution and its football program.
After allegations of child abuse surfaced against Jerry Sandusky, the university appointed Judge Louis Freeh to look into how the university handled the case. The university and its leaders including former legendary football coach Joe Paterno have been criticized for what has been characterized as slow action.
The Freeh report will be released online at 9 a.m. ET and it will be followed by a press conference at 10 a.m. ET.
A jury found Sandusky guilty on 45 counts of sexual abuse last month.
