STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — The lawyer for Joe Paterno's family says the Penn State football coach didn't interfere with or attempt to compromise the investigation into sex abuse allegations against ex-assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
Wick Sollers, the Paterno family lawyer, said in a statement Saturday that Paterno testified truthfully and to the best of his recollection before the grand jury
CNN says it has seen emails showing university former president Graham Spanier agreed not to take allegations of sex abuse against Sandusky to authorities but worried they'd be "vulnerable" for failing to report it. It says the emails followed a graduate assistant's 2001 report of seeing Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy in a shower.
The emails show athletic director Tim Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz intended to report the allegation, then reconsidered.
Sollers said it would be inappropriate for the family to comment because it does not possess the emails. He says the emails didn't originate with Paterno or go to him because he never utilized email.
