Prosecutors Sought Charges Against Sandusky In 2010

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A new report shows a prosecutor heading the Jerry Sandusky child molestation investigation sought to have him charged in 2010 but her higher-ups felt the single victim at that time wasn’t enough.

The finding was included in a report issued Monday that detailed the handling of the Sandusky investigation.

It faults police and prosecutors for long delays in bringing charges but says there’s no evidence that politics affected the investigation into the former Penn State assistant football coach.

The prosecutor, Jonelle Eshbach, kept emailing her bosses about the case during a stretch in 2010 when the probe was largely dormant.

The report blames a three-year lapse in filing charges on communication problems, an expungement of a 1998 complaint about Sandusky and a failure to take investigative steps early on.
