A lot of people are wondering why it took the better part of two years for Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett to investigate Jerry Sandusky while Corbett was attorney general. Today, Corbett appeared at a Pennsylvania Press Club luncheon to offer some answers. A grand jury was convened around the summer of 2009
to seek an indictment against Sandusky,* but Corbett said the attorney general's office didn't have enough evidence to file charges any sooner than it did. Corbett said he wanted to methodically build a case against Sandusky and establish a pattern of behavior, rather than run the risk of endangering his prosecution with a quick arrest.
Corbett also offered a favorable opinion on Kenneth Frazier and Louis Freeh, the Penn State-connected investigators whom Penn State has hired to look into what went wrong at the school. The entire Q&A is interesting. I've copied it below from Capitolwire but can't link to the original because, alas, Capitolwire is subscription-only. Here you go:
