Penn State trustee voices concerns about the justice system in wake of new Sandusky revelations

Anthony Labrano, a trustee of the Penn State University, joined Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Thursday to offer an inside perspective in the ongoing controversy surrounding the 2012 conviction of former PSU assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky for sexual abuse of young boys over a period of 15 years.

Responding to Mediaite columnist John Ziegler's assertions that Sandusky is actually innocent, Labrano aired his concerns about the university's $93 million in settlements with 33 victims. The first round of the settlements was for about $60 million and was to be paid to 26 individuals, but some of the representation has been found to have been untrue.

"I have some real concerns, no question about it ... with respect to the process," Labrano said. "There was little to no vetting."

Labrano also shared his thoughts about the U.S. justice system, saying, "I've lost a great deal of respect for our justice system. It doesn't seem to be particularly just." While declining to offer an opinion about Sandusky's guilt or innocence, Labrano said he believes Sandusky deserves another trial.
