Reports: Kane Investigation into Sandusky Case Finds Corbett Did Not Delay
Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s report on Gov. Tom Corbett’s investigation into the Sandusky child sex abuse case has concluded that the governor did not delay the case for political reasons while serving as Attorney General and running for governor, according to reports in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The report has not been released to the public because those involved have the chance to read and offer responses before it's released to the public. Neither the attorney general’s nor the governor’s office have issued an official statement. Estimations on when this process may be finished are unavailable.
Kane commissioned the report after criticizing Corbett’s handling of the Sandusky investigation. The report was completed by federal prosecutor H. Geoffrey Moulton. The report was previously approved by a judge, as reported here.
While running for the attorney general's seat, Kane's campaign questioned the Sandusky investigation’s length, the necessity of having called a grand jury and whether Corbett had delayed the investigation for political reasons. Kane commissioned the report after taking office.
Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach, was convicted on 45 counts of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years. He is currently serving up to 60 years in prison.
Penn State spokesperson Annemarie Mountz says she has not seen the report. The offices of the Attorney General and the Governor could not be reached for comment.
