Penn State athletic director, VP surrender on charges of perjury, failure to report abuse
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) ' Penn State Vice President Gary Schultz and Athletic Director Tim Curley have surrendered for an arraignment on charges of perjury and failure to report abuse.
Schultz, the school's senior vice president for business and finance, and Curley are making their first court appearances Monday afternoon in Harrisburg.
They are accused of failing to alert police to complaints that former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was sexually abusing boys. They are also charged with lying to a state grand jury investigating the complaints.
Lawyers for the 57-year-old Curley and 62-year-old Schultz will seek to have the charges dismissed.
Authorities accused Sandusky of sexually abusing eight boys over 15 years through his charity for at-risk youth.
Both Curley and Schultz stepped down after a Sunday night meeting of university trustees.
