PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Penn State report into Jerry Sandusky’s molestation says sexual abuse might have been prevented if university officials had banned him from bringing children onto campus after a 1998 inquiry.

The report released Thursday said that despite their knowledge of the police probe into Sandusky showering with a boy in a football locker room, president Graham Spanier, football coach Joe Paterno, athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz took no action to limit his access to campus. The report also says the four men didn’t act to protect children as a result.

The May 1998 complaint by a woman whose son came home with wet hair after showering with Sandusky didn’t result in charges at the time.The report says Schultz was worried the matter could be opening “Pandora’s box.”
