STATE COLLEGE, Pennsylvania - A news organization says it has seen emails showing Penn State University's former president agreed not to take allegations of child sex abuse against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky to authorities but worried they'd be "vulnerable" for failing to report it.
CNN says the emails followed a graduate assistant's 2001 report of seeing Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy in a shower.
Sandusky recently was convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys.
The attorney for the former president, Graham Spanier, didn't immediately return a call Saturday.
The emails show athletic director Tim Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz intended to report the allegation but reconsidered. Spanier responded he was "supportive."
NBC has also reported on the emails.
Schultz and Curley face charges they lied to a grand jury.
