Tonight on AC360: Sandusky victims' reaction to PSU report

After months of investigating, Former FBI Director Louis Freeh issued a report detailing the extraordinary failures of powerful officials at Penn State University to protect children from Jerry Sandusky's abuse. Freeh was charged with looking into how the school handled the scandal involving the former assistant football coach preying on young boys.

The 267-page report exposes the disturbing decisions made by university leaders to conceal Sandusky's crimes, allowing a child predator to continue victimizing children in a culture of secrecy. It also states that part of the motivation for a cover-up was to "avoid the consequences of bad publicity."

A lawyer representing several of Sandusky's victims tells Anderson Cooper what her clients think about Freeh’s findings. Justine Andronici says "they were not surprised by the scope of the cover up" and feel satisfied that the public is now aware that "the highest level officials at Penn State University actively concealed a child predator in their midst."

Watch a preview and see the full interview at 8 and 10 p.m. ET.
