Curley, Schultz call Freeh report one-sided

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - The lawyers for Penn State administrators accused of lying to a grand jury and not reporting suspected child abuse by Jerry Sandusky say a report critical of their clients' actions doesn't show the full picture.

The attorneys for athletic director Tim Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz say the investigation led by former FBI director Louis Freeh was flawed.

Curley lawyer Caroline Roberto calls the report a ``lopsided document that leaves the majority of the story untold,'' while Schultz attorney Tom Farrell says there were no efforts to conceal Sandusky's behavior.

They say the conclusions reached in the Freeh report were based on an incomplete record and their clients will prove their innocence in court.

"Absent the opportunity to interview critical witnesses, including, but not limited to Mike McQueary, Chief of Police Tom Harmon and former Assistant District Attorney Karen Arnold, the Freeh Report, like the grand jury presentment, does not provide a comprehensive rendition of the facts," Farrell said.

McQueary came to Paterno with a report of Sandusky in the shower with a young boy in 2001. Arnold reviewed a 1998 complaint by a woman whose son had showered with Sandusky, but no charges were filed after a police investigation.

Schultz and Curley are awaiting trial in Harrisburg, but a date hasn't been set.
