AP: Corbett Meets With Sandusky Investigator

Why did it take so long to prosecute?

AP reports that Gov. Tom Corbett met this week with an investigator examining his handling of the Jerry Sandusky case while he was attorney general. No other details were available.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane began the investigation in February 2013 and put ex-federal prosecutor H. Geoffrey Moulton Jr., in charge. Kane was looking for answers about why it took nearly three years after the first victim was identified to bring charges against Sandusky, the Penn State football team’s former defensive line coach. Corbett was running for governor during one year of the investigation. He has denied politics played a role in the length of the probe.

Sandusky, of course, was convicted in the case, and is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence.
