Penn State alumni-elected trustees get access to files used to create 2012 report on Sandusky

Nine Penn State trustees elected by alumni are getting access to documents used to create a 2012 report about how top university administrators handled sex abuse complaints against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Board Chairman Keith Masser said in a letter to trustees Monday that he's directed a Philadelphia lawyer to make available a database and interview materials used to produce the report by former FBI director Louis Freeh.

Masser's letter says trustees who want to review the millions of pages will have to sign a confidentiality agreement.

Alumni-elected trustee Anthony Lubrano calls Masser's letter "a good start" and says he and the others will probably have some ideas about how to modify the process.

The alumni-elected faction has been critical of the report.
