Despite criticism, Louis Freeh stands by his Penn State report

PHILADELPHIA — Former FBI Director Louis Freeh insists his recent damning report on Penn State wasn't compromised by his inability to interview key witnesses in the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

The report, prepared for the university, has come under fire from ousted school president Graham Spanier, the family of late coach Joe Paterno and others.

Addressing the criticism Tuesday, Freeh says he stands by his work.

Freeh's comments come as he announced that his law firm will merge with Pepper Hamilton, a Philadelphia-based firm that helped with the Penn State investigation.

The firms will merge Sept. 1.

Pepper Hamilton is also acquiring the Freeh Group International Solutions, a consulting group that will keep its name.
