REPORT: Investigators call Penn State officials actions callous and shocking

PENNSYLVANIA -- Penn State has released the report on the investigation into the child sex abuse scandal.

The investigation lead by former FBI Director Louis Freeh described the actions of officials at Penn State as callous and shocking.

According to the report the state officials looked the other way and seemed more concerned about the school's reputation and former coach Jerry Sandusky than his victims.

The report also points the fingers at head coach Joe Paterno as well as the school's former president, vice president and athletic director.

"The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized," Freeh said.

A jury found Sandusky guilty of 45 counts of abusing children in June. He will likely spend the the rest of his life behind bars.
