Penn St gets report on federal Sandusky probe

Posted: Updated:

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State says it's received a preliminary report from the federal government regarding whether its handling of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal complied with campus crime reporting requirements.

The school said Monday that neither it nor the U.S. Department of Education can release information about the report at this time. Penn State says school officials have given federal reviewers access to the records and information they've requested.

Prosecutors allege high-ranking university officials failed to properly report suspected abuse of children by Sandusky, a retired assistant football coach at the school.

The law, called the Clery Act, requires universities to publish annual reports and maintain a daily crime log. It's named for Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old Lehigh University freshman who was raped killed in a campus residence hall in 1986.

    Police say an Austintown man told them he led authorities on a thirteen mile, fifteen minute pursuit through four Mahoning County townships because he didn't believe the “real police” were chasing him.
