Penn State Officials’ Perjury Trial Set for January Start

Two former top officials of Pennsylvania State University go to trial in January on charges they lied to a grand jury about a sex-abuse allegation against convicted former football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Commonwealth Court Judge Todd Hoover yesterday scheduled jury selections to begin on Jan. 7 for Gary Schultz and Timothy Curley.

Schultz, a former vice president in charge of university police, and Curley, an athletic director now on leave, are charged with lying about the 2001 allegation and failing to report the incident to police. Lawyers for both men were in court two days ago arguing the charges should be dismissed because they lack specifics and are too old to prosecute.

Sandusky, 68, who spent 31 seasons as a defensive assistant under late football coach Joe Paterno, was convicted in June on 45 criminal counts tied to the abuse of boys over a 15-year period. He is awaiting sentencing.

Curley and Schultz are charged with lying about their knowledge of an incident involving Sandusky and what appeared to be a 10-year-old boy in a football locker room in February 2001. Both men denied that a former assistant football coach, who was then a graduate assistant, told them Sandusky was sexually abusing the boy.

Curley described the incident as “horsing around,” in his testimony to the grand jury. Schultz said the assistant reported “disturbing” or “inappropriate” conduct. Neither of the men reported the incident to law enforcement.

Hoover hasn’t ruled on their request to dismiss the charges.

The case is Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Schultz, CP-22-CR-5164-2011, Court of Common Pleas of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania (Harrisburg)
