HARRISBURG, Pa. -

Pennsylvania's top prosecutor plans to release a report next week into how police and prosecutors handled the Jerry Sandusky case.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane said Friday that Geoff Moulton's review will be released Monday morning at a news conference at the Capitol in Harrisburg.

Kane vowed to look into the child molestation investigation while running for office in 2012.

The criminal case began with a report in Clinton County in late 2008, and nearly three years passed before the former Penn State assistant football coach was arrested.

Kane has suggested that then-Attorney General Tom Corbett had a political motivation to slow the investigation while he was running for governor in 2010, something Corbett, the now-governor, has strongly denied.

Sandusky was convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse and is serving a lengthy prison sentence.
