[quote=“Phanatic, post:7931, topic:2287”]Alica Chambers made a report to the child abuse hotline, that action causes DPW to create an investigation.
Also, it is proven that the DA did not stop the investigation in 1998, DPW did, it is in the emails in the Freeh report if you want to look. It was in the police report when the DPW official Lauro interviewed Sandusky and if you look at the timeframe, it was about 2 hours later when Shultz tells Curley the investigator told them jerry had boundary issues but nothing criminal. DA’s dont move that fast. But that is long enough to drive to Harrisburg.
Look at the exhibits in section 2 I believe.
The DA was not in the decision.[/quote]
Testimony by Penn State police officer Ronald Schreffler from Day Four of Sandusky’s trial:
[i]Q: Okay. Now, after this conversation with the defendant, did you have further consultation with Ms Arnold from the District Attorney’s office or Mr. Gricar.
A: Mr Gricar
Q. Okay. And were any charges lodged a result of that?
A: No, sir.
Q: Okay. At any point did you either draft a document or make a recommendation the charges be lodged, if you recall?
A: I felt there should be some charges, something, but the DA didn’t feel there should be.
Q. The District Attorney made that decision?
A: That’s correct.[/i]
Now it’s quite likely that Gricar made the decision based on Lauro’s report since you are probably going to have a hard time convicting someone when the appointed state investigator says there was no crime committed, but the actual decision was apparently Gricar’s,
