Penn State Board Says It Will Take ‘Swift, Decisive Action’

Penn State’s Board of Trustees released a statement late Tuesday night signaling a further investigation into the sex-abuse allegations against a former football coach, Jerry Sandusky. The statement says the board is “outraged by the horrifying details contained in the grand-jury report,” and in what could be a prelude to this Friday’s board meeting, the trustees said they wanted “to assure all of you that the board will take swift, decisive action.” The investigation will aim to determine what failures occurred, who is responsible, and what is necessary to prevent similar acts from ever happening again.
