Attorney Joseph McGettigan says he took a nap halfway through reading the report released by Attorney General Kathleen Kane on Monday morning which criticized investigators for a lack of urgency that led to delays in arresting Sandusky. McGettigan was the lead prosecutor in the trial for Sandusky who was convicted on 45 of 48 counts for sexually molesting 10 young boys over a 15 year period. McGettigan told this reporter, "I took a nap halfway through the report and I will use it as a door stop. It just confirms that everything we did was correct." Kane commissioned the report to look into questions if politics played any role in the case since then Attorney General Tom Corbett was running for Governor at the outset of the investigation. The special investigator found no evidence that politics played any part in the investigative decision making. Frank Fina Assisted McGettigan in the prosecution and said, "There was never ever a lack of urgency. We tracked down every lead we heard about." Kane says she would have handled the case much differently and used the tools of a Grand Jury much sooner than they were used by prosecutors under the Corbett administration at the Attorney General's Office.
