Penn State Scandal: Graham Spanier's Lawyer Attacks Freeh Report

In the latest news on the Penn State scandal that has engulfed the school, Graham Spanier's lawyers are disputing the Freeh Report with vigor.

At a press conference on Wednesday, lawyer Tim Lewis went after the Freeh Report, more so than defending his client, per Laura Nichols.

According to a litany of tweets by Nichols, the ex-PSU president is waiting and watching as his group of lawyers rebuke allegations made against him.

In Lewis' remarks, he spoke about Spanier's lack of knowledge when it came to Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuses of children, saying he was completely unaware of what was taking place.

Lewis says Spanier has always said and maintains he never knew there was 'anything of a sexual nature' going on re: Sandusky on campus.

Again, more form Nichols:

Penn State, Graham Spanier "deserved better," Lewis said. "Not this unfortunate rush to judgement."

It will be very interesting to see how this all shakes out for Spanier, who has been vilified by many people in and around Happy Valley for his alleged role in the cover-up.
