AG corrects statement on Sandusky

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania's attorney general said Wednesday that she was wrong when she said that two young men accused Jerry Sandusky of abuse after the agency's investigation into the former Penn State assistant coach began.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane had mentioned the two young men Monday while releasing a report on the attorney general's office's handling of the case.

She initially said that Sandusky had not been charged in relation to the two, but she acknowledged Wednesday that one of the men was among the eight victims who testified at Sandusky's trial in 2012.

The victim, identified in court records as Victim 9, testified that he screamed for help as Sandusky attacked him in the basement of the coach's home in State College.

Victim 9 told jurors his contact with Sandusky ended in 2008 or 2009.

Kane said the other accuser came forward in 2012, and Sandusky has not been charged in relation to him.

Prosecutors who were involved in the case at the time have said an accuser who came forward in 2012 raised credibility concerns.

It's unclear whether Kane and the trial prosecutors are talking about the same person. The attorney general's office said it would not provide any other information about the 2012 accuser.

Kane's review focused on how the Sandusky case was handled under then-Attorney General Tom Corbett, who had a successful campaign for governor in 2010, and under the two people who held the office until Kane was sworn in early last year.

The report by law professor and former federal prosecutor Geoff Moulton faulted police and prosecutors for decisions early on in the investigation, but he found no evidence the matter was influenced by politics.

Frank Fina, a lead prosecutor during Sandusky's trial and now with the Philadelphia district attorney's office, said after Kane's news conference on Monday that he knew of no one with a credible claim of being assaulted by Sandusky during the investigation.

Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year state prison sentence.
