Sandusky Probe Had ‘Inexplicable Delays’

A report released Monday found “inexplicable delays” in the prosecution of infamous Penn State child molester Jerry Sandusky. The report said prosecutors were remiss in performing basic steps, such as investigating Sandusky’s home. As a result, it took a full year, from March 2009 until March 2010, for the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office to even recommend charging him. Attorney General Kathleen Kane noted that Sandusky continued to abuse boys during the delayed investigation. However, the report also noted there was no evidence of politically related interference on the part of the then-attorney general Tom Corbett, who is now the governor of Pennsylvania.
