Curley, Schultz Case: Defenses Ask for Extension of Time to File Motions
The attorneys for former Penn State administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz asked a Dauphin County judge on Tuesday to allow more time to file pre-trial motions for their perjury case.
They are asking to have the due date for their responses pushed back to May 4.
The case is expected to go to trial in the fall.
Curley, the Penn State athletic director placed on paid administrative leave, and Schultz, the retired vice president of finance and business, are accused of lying to the state’s grand jury investigating child sex abuse allegations against former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who is awaiting trial on 52 counts, and of a failure to report a crime.
All three men maintain their innocence.
Last week, a timeline of events was laid out in the perjury cases against Curley and Schultz, who are expected back in Dauphin County Court on June 1 for a pre-trial conference, according to an order by Judge Todd A. Hoover. That is also their deadline for filing pre-trial motions for discovery and inspection.
The two have until July 30 to file any other pre-trial motions, and the prosecution will have to respond by Aug. 14.
