Give it a rest, you assholes.
Former Penn State trustee Al Lord, who helped research and write the alumni trustees’ report, said Tuesday he has heard other trustees quietly criticize the Freeh report. He said he hopes the newly public document changes minds.
“It’s about the reputations of Paterno, Spanier, Curley and Schultz. They’re the ones who had the ultimate damage,” Lord said.
About those reputations…
Spanier was convicted in 2017 of a single misdemeanor count of child endangerment, and has a request pending before the state Supreme Court to review his case. A judge in 2017 threw out Spanier’s defamation lawsuit against Freeh.
Two of Spanier’s top lieutenants when he was president, vice president Gary Schultz and athletic director Tim Curley, pleaded guilty to child endangerment on the eve of trial and testified against him. Both served short terms in county jail. Spanier is free on bail pending appeal, and his lawyer declined comment on the new report.
I could be wrong, but I don’t think you’re gonna be able to unring that bell, Al.
