First Oral Arguments in Curley, Schultz Case Set for Aug. 16

by on July 17, 2012 10:38 AM

The first oral arguments in the criminal case of former Penn State administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz will be held 9 a.m. Aug. 16 in Harrisburg. 

Curley, the former Penn State athletic director and Schultz, a former Penn State vice president, face charges of perjury for lying to a grand jury under oath and failure to report child sexual abuse when complaints were brought against former Penn State football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

Neither defendant is required to attend, per the court's release. 

Both men have sought a full dismissal of the case against them.

Last week, former FBI Director Louis Freeh released his investigative report of Penn State's actions surrounding Sandusky's actions over a 14-year period. In the 267-page document, Freeh says Penn State former top administrators, including Curley and Schultz, were a part of a cover-up that allowed a child predator to roam free on-campus. 

Meanwhile, former Penn State president Graham Spanier and the family of former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno said they are seeking further review of the findings presented in the Freeh report as they believe many facts were either left out or are incorrect. 

Spanier, who filed a suit against Penn State May 25 in an attempt to have emails turned over to him that were made a part of the Freeh investigation because they were on Penn State servers, has his own court date scheduled for Aug. 17 in Courtroom 1 of the Centre County Courthouse in Dauphin County.
