A spokesman for Penn State's board of trustees says members held an informational conference call as they prepare for the results of an investigation into the university's handling of convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky.

David La Torre declined further comment on Tuesday night's call. The call came a few hours after former FBI director Louis Freeh announced his report would be released Thursday.

ESPN first reported the trustees' call.

The report will focus on the facts and circumstances surrounding molestation allegations against the longtime assistant to Joe Paterno.

The highly anticipated report will be posted on the Internet at 9 a.m. on Thursday. Investigators will hold a news conference at 10 a.m. to discuss the findings and recommendations in the report.

  • Watch the Penn State Investigation news conference Thursday at 10 a.m. on NBC Philadelphia NonStop on Comcast channel 248 or Verizon 460 or on NBC10.com.
  • NBC10 crews will be live during all newscasts from State College, Scranton and Center City

Sandusky, a former assistant football coach, was convicted last month on 45 charges in the sexual abuse of 10 boys.
