Dauphin County judge sets trial date set for PSU administrators

    A trial date has been set for two of Penn State’s administrators. Tim Curley, PSU’s suspended athletic director and former vice president Gary Schultz will face charges of perjury and failure to report abuse in a Dauphin County courthouse on January 7.

    The pair allegedly concealed child sex-abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky and later lied about it to a grand jury, reports Philly.com.

     

    An ongoing investigation has revealed a chain of e-mails that prosecutors say incriminates both men in the cover-up. Prosecutors also say that the men failed to tell authorities about a 2001 incident that Mike McQueary reported after witnessing Sandusky molesting a boy in the locker room showers.
