(State College) -- A Penn State trustee is calling on the university governing board to reexamine the findings of former FBI director Louis Freeh's investigation for the school into the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Trustee Alvin Clemens says in a statement the critique released this weekend by Joe Paterno's family raised serious and troubling questions about Freeh's findings.

Clemens, a trustee since 1995, said that while it was a difficult decision, trustees should look at the Freeh report again for the long-term benefit of Sandusky's victims, school and community.

Former U.S. Attorney General Dick Thornburgh was among the experts brought in by the Paterno family to review the Freeh report. The review said that claims that Paterno participated in covering up allegations against Sandusky were inaccurate and unfounded.
