Freeh Wants Defamation Proof

Former FBI director Louis Freeh wants ex-Penn State President Graham Spanier to elaborate on claims that Freeh defamed him during the Jerry Sandusky investigation.

Spanier is suing Freeh for defamation, but wants more time to file a full complaint. He has asked that the civil suit be put on hold while he defends Sandusky-linked criminal charges.
 
But Freeh, in a motion Tuesday, says the defamation charge is clouding his reputation. He objects to Spanier's request for a delay.
 
University trustees hired Freeh to conduct an internal investigation of the Sandusky matter.
 
His 2012 report concluded that Spanier, football coach Joe Paterno and other school officials failed to protect children.
 
Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year prison term for sexually abusing boys. Spanier and two others are charged in an alleged cover-up.
