Freeh sticks by his report, calls Paterno family investigation “self-serving”


Former FBI director Louis J. Freeh issued a statement after hearing the Paterno family’s report on ESPN, “Outside the Lines.”  Their investigation targeted nearly every conclusion the Freeh report made about Joe Paterno in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

The Paterno family  calls the Freeh report “factually wrong, speculative and fundamentally flawed.”
