The FBI's child sex-abuse reports of former Penn State University's football coach Jerry Sandusky are scheduled to be released online Thursday morning. The reports were drawn by former FBI director Louis Freeh.
The reports will reveal the results of the investigation in the various incidences of child sex abuse alleged against the convicted 68-year-old. It will be released to the public eye for the first time since the case broke out since December 2011.
The University said that it will comment on the reports only after their release.

Last month, a series of emails between top University officials including University President Graham Spanier, Vice President Gary Schultz, Athletic Director Tim Curley as well as the deceased head football coach Joe Paterno were released. The emails implicated the officials in covering up the allegations against Sandusky.
The emails showed that the university president Graham Spanier, vice president Gary Schultz and athletic director, Tim Curley, exchanged emails about "the subject" and the "incident," without specifically mentioning the former assistant football coach, but mentioning his charity organization, Second Mile. The emails were sent almost two weeks after Mike McQueary, the prosecutor's star witness in the case, reported seeing Sandusky in the shower with a boy.
Sandusky, 68, is currently in Centre County prison awaiting his sentencing, which is scheduled to be held in about 90 days.
Last month a jury of seven women and five men found the 68 year-old guilty of 45 out of the 48 counts against him for sexual abuse of eight victims over a span of 15 years.
