Penn State and some of its faculty could face litigation following a sexual crime scandal at the university, reported the New York Times.
CNN reported that Tom Corbett said a new law is needed to make sure reports of alleged child sexual abuse are made to government authorities.
"I wouldn't be surprised to see if a bill was passed between now and the end of this year," Corbett said, according to CNN.
The New York Times reported that litigation could follow, with at least one expert noting elements of a possible conspiracy are there.
"If Penn State was smart it would spend whatever it takes to find the victims, settle with them, provide treatment and begin rebuilding the image of the university as a place where the safety of children was put above the football program," said Stephen Rubino, a lawyer specializing in sexual abuse cases, according to the New York Times.
