Kane: Sandusky Review Slowed by Missing Documents

She’s investigating how Tom Corbett handled the case when he was A.G.

The Morning Call reports: “Attorney General Kathleen Kane said her ongoing review of the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse investigation under her predecessor — former attorney general and now Gov. Tom Corbett — stalled when key documents were discovered missing.”

Last fall, the office developed a process to recover the documents that is ongoing, said Kane, who also cited other factors including grand jury secrecy as reasons the review still has not been completed.

“The release of the review findings will be determined only by the time necessary to complete a comprehensive review. I remain fully committed to that approach. Pennsylvanians deserve the full and true story, and I will not permit a rush to judgment to interfere with a thorough review,” she said.

Kane said she will need to obtain a judge’s approval to release the findings of her office’s review because it involves matters before a grand jury, which are secret. She also said that people discussed in the report must be given a chance to review it before it is made public.

Corbett has denied any wrongdoing in the Sandusky case.
